I was stoked to open up this month’s box to see that Disney decided to go back to the classics. I love this ‘movie moment’ from the Little Mermaid and I am also happy to have an Eric tsum, as my Little Mermaid stash of tsums was definitely missing him.
The quality of the boat itself was a little iffy, as the front of the boat kind of flops over (which you can see in the photo), but the tsums themselves appear to be of good quality (I adore Ariel’s ribbon).
My main comment with the boxes so far is that there doesn’t seem to be a real ‘bang for your buck’ with these tsums. I personally stay on the subscription month to month because of my love for tsum tsum as well as the exclusivity of the tsums, but when you look at what the cost of each item is, this box doesn’t appear to be a great value.
Each mini on Disney’s website is $5.95 (and these often go on sale when you buy more than one to being $4 each). The boat is hard to put a price on, but my best guess would be about $10. So the worth of this month’s box would roll in at around $22 full priced. When a box costs $27 a month, you can see this isn’t exactly a steal.
However, as mentioned before, the exclusivity definitely bumps up the value of a box. Considering the popularity of the Little Mermaid, the cheapest I’ve found this month’s box on eBay is $40. So if you aren’t a fan of a particular month, there is the possibility of resale to recuperate if not profit off your box.
