I was so excited when my parcel from Etsy store livinginwonderland12 finally arrived in the mail. As you can see from the photo above, the mystery items arrived sealed in a authentic vintage Disney VHS tape… mine is a Cinderella VHS box from around 1997!

My first three items are beautiful handmade necklaces. The first is circular and features Pocahontas’ adorable sidekick, Meeko; the second is a one-of-a-kind hand painted Grimm’s Fairytales book charm that is ACTUALLY A TINY BOOK alongside a charm of Cinderella’s carriage; the third is of Alice In Wonderland, it’s square and can be worn two ways as the pendant is double-sided, with a different photo of Alice on each side!

My fourth item is a gorgeous handmade beaded bracelet, with pink and glittery silver beads, and features one of my favourite quotes – Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! It also has a cute charm of Fairy Godmother’s wand to make it extra magic.

My fifth item is a beautiful, sparkly coaster. It features a painted-style storybook illustration of Rapunzel with her long, flowing golden hair, and has been delicately brushed over with multi-coloured glitter.

My sixth and seventh items are rare trading cards! The first is a singular Disney Princess trading card featuring Snow White with her animal friends; the other is a super-rare Pocahontas trading card pack, featuring 9 cards that tell the story of Pocahontas through stills from the movie and facts/excerpts on the reverse side. One of the cards is a fun pop-out card where you can pop out the character to keep as a figure, and the other is a double-sided card with part of a picture: if you collect them all, you’ll get to put together the whole illustration!

Last but certainly not least, my eighth item is a unique, quirky print of Stitch, who has stolen the Mad Hatter’s hat! The print also features a quote from the original Alice novels. The print is a handy 6×4 inches which means lots of options of where to display!

Livinginwonderland12 put together and sell these mystery Disney themed VHS boxes at only £4.99 each – however, the items inside as a whole are worth WAY more (the book necklace alone is individually listed as £5.99), so these boxes are an absolute bargain and make the mystery element so worth it! If Disney isn’t quite your thing, don’t fret – there are other themed boxes for sale, such as the ever popular 90’s theme, and more!

A big thank you to livinginwonderland12 for putting together a gorgeous box full of beautiful items I absolutely love!

You can watch me unbox these items in more detail (and watch my initial reactions!) over on my YouTube channel here.

Will you be purchasing your own mystery VHS box? Or have you already got one of your own? Let me know in the comments!image

My name is Mandy Jean, I’m 23, and I’m probably likely to be in the top 5 of the most nerdy people you’ll ever meet (I’ve been personally informed of this on more than one occasion). I’m also obsessed with Disney movies, an avid comic reader and pastel colours are my Kryptonite. When I’m not blogging, I’m a cosplayer under the name Enchanted Rose Cosplay, and have been working part-time as a pro make-up artist for 7 years. Oh, I also enjoy sketching in my downtime and chilling with my dogs, Maggie May and Minnie Bow.
