Unboxing | Tombow VIP Club November 2020

Hello and welcome to a little unboxing post of he most recent Tombow VIP Club box. This box pops up from time to time on their site and often is a great deal to try out new items. This box is currently listed for $30 on tombowusa.com and had free shipping when I ordered within the US.

I really loved the color scheme of this box, bright yellows, muted pinks and earthy greens. As soon as you open the box you are met with a card that on the front has the logo of the box that is usually decorated in art using the colors in the box. On the other side they detail the items and their worth.

Image of items in the box, detailed below.

First you have tthe ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Marker 5-pack, which comes with the colors P817 Mauve, P993 Chrome Orange, P249 Hunter Green, P761 Carnation, and PN75 Cool Gray 3. This 5 pack combination ended up being an exclusive to the box. Following this are three of their famous Dual Brush Pens in he colors 312 Holly Green, 879 Brown, 942 Tan. Next is a single MONO Sand Eraser, which is said to erase pens, I cannot wait to give that a try. Lastly, a new to me product the Irojiten Colored Pencils in the colors D-04 Maple Sugar, DL-06 Hummingbird, D-20 Indigo, D-14 Bamboo, D-12 Maroon.

I am really excited to give these items a try. I think I am most excited about the eraser and the ABT PRO Alcohol-Based Markers. I really want to see how they compare to the Dual Brush Pens. This box ended up being a value of $54.50. So, it is certainly worth the money spent and is a fun little box in my eyes. This is the third on I hav gotten and I plan on getting more in the future.

Hauls & Unboxings

Unboxing | Tombow VIP Club January 2020

Hauls & Unboxings

Hello and welcome to a little unboxing of the Tombow VIP Club. I was not planning ordering and unboxing this today, but honestly Tombow loves to throw these boxes out randomly so here I am.  I saw it in my email and I really loved what was inside so I ordered it. In the US this is $25 with free shipping. Now to unbox and see if it is worth the money! If this is still available you can find it here: Tombow VIP Club.


I just love how festive the box is when I opened it I needed to take a picture. It is so bright and color, just what I have needed with all of the long nights of winter. I truly miss the color of Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Here are the items inside the box, first the exclusive Tombow playing cards. I love playing solitaire in my free time so these were a really cute edition in my eyes. Also great for an unexpected card game with friends, these are said to be about $12.99. This is about on par with some nicer playing cards I have seen at the store. Next we have a new collection of their Dual Brush Pens called Celebration. This is a collection of 10 colors which include; 055, 452, 245,885, 723,  850, 026, 451, 743, and 925. This is said to be worth $26.99. I have used and loved thee Dual Brush Pens for a few years now, I personally really enjoy them. Lastly, we have MONO Drawing Pens in 6 different sizes; 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, and 08. I have not used this before, but I am really excited to give them a try. I feel like they would be great in my bullet journal! These are also said to be worth $16.99.

So, if you total all of that up this box is worth $56.97. Very much above the $25 price of the box. The Dual Brush Pens alone are the price of the box.

Here is a little peak into the cards, they are really beautiful cards and feature the work from the design team.  It seems that each suit has its own artist, which is a wonderful way to showcase their team members and their talents.

Here is a swatch of all of the colors in the Celebration set as well as all of the MONO Drawing Pens. I am happy to report that none of them bleed through, which I was really thrilled about. Pens can be very tricky at times, but for reference I use Archer and Olive  A5 dot grid notebook, so your experience might not be the same as mine if you use a different notebook.

Overall I am thrilled by this Tombow VIP Club box. For me it is a great deal, I get to try new things without putting out the full price. That is always something I worry about, spending money and buying something full price and it doesn’t work out. This really gives me a bit more confidence to go outside of my normal box and give something a go.

Hauls & Unboxings

Tombow VIP Club | February 2019

Unboxing

Hello everyone! I am coming to you with another unboxing. Let me know what you think about me sharing these things or not. I personally love book unboxings/hauls and stationary/bullet journal unboxings. If you are new here, hi, I’m Luna and I love books, pens, markers, and artsy things. This year I made a goal to share more of my loves outside of books and this is my way to dipping my toe. I hope you enjoy!

I have to admit, I LOVE the color of the box. I am a sucker for cute packaging and for me this fits the bill. Also, on top of that it is sturdy and you can tell it was well thought out with all the classic Tombow items illustrated all over it.

Next was a card with information on them. Very cute, and I looked at this after unboxing everything if I am honest. While I knew one item beforehand, because I did not read what was inside the box. Yes, if you want to know what is inside they totally tell you so you know what you are spending your money on. I really appreciate them giving consumers the option.

Now to all the goodies. I really found these to all be practical and helpful items to use in my everyday life and in my bullet journal. I constantly use glue tape, I feel like I am buying a new roll every month and to get 3, I am so excited. The washi tape included is also really adorable, I really loved how they tied one of the tapes to the pattern on the card and the product design of the newly released item. These markers are not something I played with just yet, but I am very exited about them being thin and colorful. They seem really vibrant. The main reason I did not add swatches at this time is because I am in the profess of redoing my “craft” area in the shared office. So I didn’t want to open them and risk loosing one or two to the chaos. The last item I thought was a really cute idea. It is a mini learn to draw page with banners and fun doodles you can add into your bullet journal or wherever you feel like you need it. On the other side is the alphabet in a beautiful script typography.
