The Half Blood Prints Monthly subscription is still new, but this is definitely one of the more unique (and reasonably priced!) boxes out there to still get a whole lot of fandom bang for your buck.
This month’s Half Blood Prints Monthly featured the theme of Doctor Who. The items remained consistent with last month, apart from the theming.
The first item was a magnetic April calendar featuring the Tardis as a backdrop. Personally, I felt the calendar was a bit plain and a bit too similar to the main art print, but I still adore it.Never too much Tardis.
The next item was the bookmark featuring the Starry Night feat. The Tardis from one of my FAVORITE episodes featuring Vincent Van Gogh. This was such a creative idea to include!
Next was the sticker with the quote:
“I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”
This is one of my favorite quotes from the show and I’m so glad it was incorporated in the the box somehow!
Finally, the large art print, featuring a very pretty, outer space detailed Tardis and the quote:
“There’s no such thing as an ordinary human.”
I am thrilled with this quote choice as well, as I feel quotes from the Ninth Doctor can sometimes be overlooked. Glad he was involved!
Overall the artwork for this box was stunning. My issue is not with the actual items inside but instead with my own decisions. What will I do as I continue to accrue calendars month after month, years from now. Will I still display April of 2016, just to enjoy the artwork? Or how about my soon to be endless supply of bookmarks/art prints? Quite a bit of items that I can’t use forever/multiples a the same time.
That being said the quality of these items is phenomenal, and I am thrilled they decided to invest in an upgrade option where you can add on a t-shirt to your order as well! The designs I’ve seen are amazing!
