Autumn might be on its way but we’re hanging on to summer with a review of the latest Pusheen Box! The theme was Camp Pusheen with fun items for outdoors. Here’s a look at what was inside and my top 5 items.
The box arrived quite quickly after shipping in late July and features Pusheen in a scarf with Camp Pusheen logo. The vinyl figure is one of the most detailed yet with Pusheen & Stormy toasting (and burning!) marshmallows. Both characters can be removed and displayed separately too.
There were 8 items in the Summer 2020 Pusheen Box: portable blanket, ringer tee, thermos flask, silicone straw, patch set, felt pennant, plush and vinyl figure. Let’s have a closer look at my favourite items.
This is a really nice quality blanket that has some great touches for outdoors. The patterned side is a soft fleece-style fabric and the reverse is waterproof so you don’t have to worry about wet grass. There’s plenty room for one person to sit and a small person like me can lie down too. It even comes with a little carry strap. I wasn’t convinced it would go back inside easily but if you use the blanket folds as a guide it does work. I used to keep a blanket on my bike rack for park rides and this will be a much cuter replacement.
This is another item that they could have cheaped out on but it’s really great. It’s a wide-mouthed metal thermos with a little cup on top and even a fold out metal spoon for soup. The screw top is really tight and didn’t leak at all and my tea was nice and hot. I really love the colours as well – so retro. I’m not sure I’ll get a lot of use out of this but I am keeping it anyway!
Iron-On Patch Set
While patches aren’t quite as cool as enamel pins, I do love them and they fit the camping theme well. These are nice quality embroidered iron-on patches that would look great on a bag, jacket or shirt.
I would never have guessed what was inside this little case, possibly even after opening it. As you can see, there’s a silicone straw folded up in there and a cleaning wire! It’s the perfect size to clip on your bag and has a magnetic closure to stop things falling out. The straw is a bit bendy for my liking but if you’re someone who really needs a straw – and doesn’t want to add to plastic waste – this is a great idea.
I didn’t get any good pics of the ringer tee so let’s see the new plush instead. Pusheen is wearing a little neck scarf and holding a marshmallow. It’s a lovely soft plush but I feel like they could have been a bit more creative as it isn’t obvious as a marshmallow. A little Camp Pusheen flag or a shirt with patches would have been adorable. Or even better, a mini Pusheen that could clip on your bag and come for a hike.
Overall, this was a fun box with a really strong theme across all the items and I love the Camp Pusheen logo and colours. Even if you’re not the outdoors type, most items are useful for every day – you could take the thermos and straw to work/school and the patches and tee would look cute anywhere. I was a little disappointed that once again the clothing was a little too big for me but I’ve since popped it in a hot wash and it did shrink enough to be wearable so that’s great as I love the green. I even liked the pennant as a fun photo prop and will probably hang it up somewhere.
