So, we (meaning me) at Plastic and Plush were awarded a Top 100 Toy Blog by the folks at Feedspot. If you scroll through their listing, there are a lot of recognizable sites listed. So, we're in good company. And thanks to Feedspot for the recognition. Have I really been doing this for 13 years?
It's been a while since we've offered the Plastic and Plush Mystery Box to readers. Basically, it's a USPS Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box filled to the rim with toys. These could be vinyl, plastic, resin or plush...and most likely released sometime within the last 10 years. So there will be a number of hard to get items in these boxes. It's like a giant blind box that measures 12" x 12" x 5.5".
Each box will run $68.75. That's $50.00 plus the cost of shipping the priority mail flat rate box.
You can pick one up below...just in time for Christmas.
