Are these still a thing? Hallmark Cubeez came out a few years ago and featured many of the most popular Disney characters, like the Muppets. I didn’t see the point but (obviously) bought a selection to add to my collection.
And what are they? The tagline states that you should Fill’em, Stack’em, Collect’em. Well, alright then! So they are basically empty metal boxes for the low, low price of $7.95 CAN. And you can put stuff in them. And you can stack them. Like this:
I have to admit that I do find these tiny bins hilarious! Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker from the Muppet Labs are two of my favorite Muppets, so picking them up was a no-brainer. But I also had to add the Swedish Chef as well, because: Bork Bork Bork! Just click the link for a closer look at him and the paperwork that comes with each tin.
Each box measures 3″ cubed. To open, you simply pull up on the sides and the top will separate from the base.
Looks like just another day at Muppets Labs, doesn’t it?
I find the Hallmark stores tend to carry some amazing Disney merchandise. This is now especially important as the official Disney Store has closed. They also sell great stuff featuring other popular IPs.
Each box has a sticker label affixed to the bottom with the IP designation, in this case, The Muppets. It also contains the price. When you peel the sticker label off, you find the name of the character being depicted.
You know the only problem with being immortalized with one of these Cubeez boxes? People can then truthfully call you a ‘Blockhead’. Good Grief!
