Cravebox limited edition Back to School Box

This is not the normal Cravebox subscription box.  In addition to their subscription service they also offer limited edition boxes every few months.  In order to be eligible to purchase one of these limited edition boxes you have to put your name in a drawing.  You don't have to be a member to be put in the drawing for a limited edition box. It's a one time charge for that particular box if you are chosen to receive one.  What makes these limited is that there are only 1500 available.  You have to sign up on their website to be notified when these boxes are available.  From that point they choose 1500 people to receive a box.  The limited edition boxes cost vary in cost.  This particular was supposed to cost $13.00 w/shipping included.  They had some shipping issues with this one and I received it several weeks after I was supposed to.  Now this shocked me.  I knew there were problems with shipping and they kept sending emails explaining the situation so I wasn't really worried about it.  Then next thing I know I get an email saying because they had shipping issues (not weather related) they were going to refund the cost of this box and still send it out. This was totally unexpected!  
I'm not going to break down the good and not so good for this since this is a limited edition box.  

Back to School treasures!

Contents of box with retail price listed: 

1 oz. bottle w/35 doses of Children's Oral Antiseptic Spray from Halo. Value = $12.99

6oz. bottle of Aloe Vera Gel from Fruit of the Earth. Value = $5.99 - Fantastic product!  I was making pear butter and had just burned myself on some of the sauce.  I decided to take a break and check the mail.  I found my Cravebox and inside I found this gel.  I put some on my burn and the pain went away immediately.  I'm going to make sure I always have this stuff around.  

Slim pack of 10 Kleenex. Value = $0.75 - Who couldn't use pocket Kleenex, this is great!

90 count bottle of Yummi Bears children's vitamins with DHA/Omega 3. Value = $29.99 - Seems little high priced to me but they taste good.  

Little Pim Disc 3 Spanish for playtime.  Value = $17.95

4 pack of The Bic Atlantis Ball colored pens. Value = $5.98

4 pack of The Bic Atlantis Mechanical Pencil. Value = $5.79

Coupon for a free lunchables with a real fruit smoothie. Value up to $3.99

The total value of the back to school box is $83.43. Wow, that's a great haul and there is some really cool stuff in here. The Spanish DVD is interesting. It says it's for babies, toddlers and preschoolers of which I don't have but it's sounds like a really cool learning video.  My nephew will totally love the lunchables and who doesn't love pens and pencils.  I'm still amazed at how well the aloe vera gel worked, I would definitely recommend this!  

Verdict: The limited edition boxes are pretty awesome.  If you see one you like by all means enter the drawing.  

I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Cravebox.  I purchase these boxes myself.
