Superhero Necklaces just added!

We are a huge superhero loving family, films are watched together,our own comics are shared, we all have our favourite and we even love some of the villians but who doesn’t. Our children are growing up in the same way to love all things geeky with a mind of their own and what parent wouldn’t be proud of that.

When I was looking for a Batman Necklace I couldn’t find one I liked, I didn’t want a huge chunky metal one I wanted something lighter but couldn’t find the right one so I made my own. Once I’d made mine my eldest daughter wanted one and asked if I could make a Wonder Woman one too. So that’s how I began making superhero necklaces. With all the films and Tv shows around right now it’s no suprising how popular Superheros have become. Many long awaited films are out this year.

I currently have Doctor Who and Superman/ Supergirl available with the rest of the stock to be updated within the week. Then Avengers, Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman will also be available. If there is anything you’d like but it’s not yet available drop me a message and I’ll see what I can do.

I was #TeamBatman and #Teamcap, who were your loyalties to?

Infinity Crate June Unboxing -Theme Gather

I’m a little late writing this up considering we had it the same time as our Marvel Collector Corps Ant-man box but if you have kids then you know weekends are super hectic, sometimes as busy as the week.

Anyway getting back to the Infinity Crate June box which the theme of the month was Gather. Now as soon as I heard this I was thinking Pokemon etc as you gather and collect objects.  I can’t say I was super happy about the theme because I didn’t think there would be anything in it I would like but it was already paid for.
As usual hubby and son unboxing in which he insists on one of the items 🙂

And below is a list of the contents:
Funko Pop Avengers Age of Ultron : Ultron
4 Pin Badges
Mini Poster
Hulk vs Thanos t-shirt
Yoshi mini soft toy
Sweets

Not super impressed which is a pity as I enjoyed last month’s theme and was hoping to carry on for next months theme which is Time & Space. It’s a shame that it can’t be more personalised as we may have got a Borderlands Claptrap Pop which we haven’t got yet. White t-shirts also drive me crazy most prefer black but even grey would be better than white. Loved the Minecraft badge and the one I think is supernatural but still figuring out what to do with them. I don’t think we’ll bother next month but we’ll see.

June Pop In a Box Unboxing

Hey guys,

Seems I’ve had so many new pops since our last pop in a box came and now it’s here again. This monthly box always gets me excited for what pop we will recieve, if it will be an exclusive or something I’ve been looking for,I love the suprise.
I’m hoping this month for something rare or different to the pops in our local stores so fingers crossed for a great sub this month. I spent hours (not jokeing) thumbs up and thumbs downing so many pops in the hope of just pops we want.
Here is the husband unboxing our box and yes I stole the popping candy…yummy cherry.

So an you can see above we recieved original Iron Man which is okay pretty common available in Tesco but he has a really good paint job unlike the Tesco ones and Hawkeye from Marvels Avengers Age of Ultron which is cool now we just have Hulk to go but again he’s in the local shops.

Still happy as they are ones I would have bought at some point but I want something new and exciting so I’m hoping next month we get a WOW pop.

Harley Quinn – Pocket Pop Keychain

As you may have seen from my tweets or others posts this week I wasn’t particularly happy with my Amazon parcel I collected from the post office. I was awaiting my Iron Man Mark 43 and my Harley Quinn Keychain (Eek!)

Unfortunately although there was no damage to the shipping box, the Iron Man box was damaged and had definitely been opened before even though this was suppose to be new from Amazon. Still annoyed at this as they only offered the option of a refund and we could return it.
On the happier note…Harley Quinn Keyring, I love it!. Harley Quinn is by far one of my favourite characters and I’m a huge fan of her. If you haven’t seen the Suicide Squad series it is worth more than just a look.

The only keyring I’ll ever need for my keys or may add her to my bag either way awesome and couldn’t be happier. Now where do I find a Poison Ivy?

First Funko Pop Unboxing from Pop in a box

The first of many posts to come, I’m so excited to share this with you guys and I know you’ll enjoy the suprise of what’s in each box. The husband and I decided it was finally time to start collecting the awesome collectables we’ve wanted but didn’t want round our kids chocolate covered fingers. Now they are older we’ve jumped in head first and ordered our first round of goodies. Starting today with our first Pop in a box.
Pop in a box is a subscription service to recieve between 1 and 6 Funko Pop Vinyls a month saving money the more you order. You scroll through the site giving a thumbs up to the items you want the most and thumbs down to the ones you don’t want to recieve. So much choice and you can also keep track of the items you have by marking it in your collection, this will also make sure you don’t recieve that item.

If your interested in getting your very own Pop in a box check out their site at popinabox.co.uk

So without anymore waiting here is what we recieved this month:

As you can see from the pictures we recieved the new Avengers Age of Ultron Captain America and Vision. Super happy I was hoping for these but thought there was no way we would get these in our first box. Only way this could have been better to me was if we had Hulk… Love Hulk!
Also each box comes with popping candy, it was orange Tango and it was yummy.
Still have more on the way so pop back soon.
