Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! Since it’s Halloween (happy Halloween everyone, what are you dressing up as?), I thought today would be the perfect day to open up a couple of the new Series 2 Funko Nightmare Before Christmas Mystery Minis. Speaking of Halloween, I’m currently spending my Halloween in the Bahamas (Nassau, Bahamas to be exact) and I couldn’t be more excited (you can follow along with my Carnival cruise/Bahamas adventures on Instagram)! If you checked out my Fall/Halloween Tag, then you already know that (along with Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus) the Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite Halloween movies. I’m not going to lie, I used to consider it more of a Christmas film until director Henry Slick (no, Tim Burton did NOT direct this film) confirmed it was indeed a Halloween flick. Although these Nightmare Before Christmas Mystery Minis don’t exactly follow the new kawaii Funko Mystery Minis mold, I decided to pick up a couple of them anyway during my last Target trip (plus they are way cuter than the series 1 Nightmare Before Christmas Mystery Minis)!

Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! If you’ve been keeping up with my BB&BR’s then you already know that I am obsessed with the new Funko Mystery Mini mold (it’s so kawaii I can’t even handle it!). I’ve really been loving how many new Mystery Minis Funko has been releasing lately and I was so EXCITED when Funko announced that there were making Disney Villains Mystery Minis. As some of you may or may not know, I’m a HUGE ‘villains’ fan. In fact, the villains are often my favorite characters in Disney films (is it just me or do villains always have the BEST songs and backstories? Speaking of villains, who else saw last night’s Once Upon A Time premiere?!!?). Since I LOVED the Harry Potter, Alice Through the Looking Glass and Disney Princess Mystery Minis so much, picking up a few of the new Disney Villains Mystery Minis was a no brainer! I’ve heard from a few people that these are supposedly hard to find at the moment but my local Hot Topic actually had two whole cases. Since I had a coupon (Hot Topic coupons ALWAYS come in handy), I decided to pick up four boxes! Continue reading
Happy Thursday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! Like most millennials (let’s face it, like most people in general), I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I grew up with Harry, Ron and Hermione and for that reason, the Harry Potter series will forever have a special place in my heart. Speaking of Harry Potter, I’m super excited because in three weeks I’ll be visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter again (I had a BLAST visiting it back in 2014 during Christmas time) and if that wasn’t exciting enough, I’ll be visiting it AGAIN in September (woot woot!). While I was at Target last night, I spotted these Funko Harry Potter Mystery Minis and I KNEW I had to get them (Harry Potter blind boxes?! Say no more, just shut up and take my money!). I’d heard that Funko would be coming out with Harry Potter Mystery Minis at some point but I didn’t know that they’d already been released (thank goodness for daily Target trips!). Continue reading
Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! This week’s BB&BR post is dedicated to the new Alice Through The Looking Glass Funko Mystery Minis. Fun fact: I LOVE Alice in Wonderland (the animated Disney film) but I’m not crazy about Alice in Wonderland (the Tim Burton film). In fact, I’ve only seen the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland once back when it first came out in 2010 and in all honestly, I fell asleep halfway through (whoops). A few weeks ago when I was at Disney World for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, I got to see a sneak peek of Alice Through The Looking Glass (this was before the film was released) and it actually looked intriguing. I’ve heard from a few people that Alice Through The Looking Glass wasn’t half bad so maybe I’ll have to check it out soon. You’d think since I’m such a HUGE Disney (and film) person that I would have seen it opening day (which I usually do with most films—I’m not a big fan of spoilers), but like I said, I wasn’t a huge fan of the first one. Speaking of Disney (more like Pixar) films, Finding Dory comes out NEXT WEEK! I’m so excited (I LOVED Finding Nemo, who am I kidding, I love EVERY Pixar film). One of the movie theaters I usually go to is doing a special Finding Nemo/Finding Dory double feature the Thursday before the film is released and you get exclusive Finding Dory gear, so I’m super excited for that!
Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! I for one am so HAPPY it’s finally Friday. This week has been SUPER long (and stressful) for me. For one, I was feeling a little (okay, a lot) under the weather during the beginning of this week (which is weird because the weather has been BEAUTIFUL here in Chicago). I also had several deadlines to meet this week (and that’s always a little stressful!). On the bright side, I decided to book a spontaneous trip to Disney World this May, which means I FINALLY get to see the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival in person (it’s been on my Disney bucket list for years!). I’m so excited because I wasn’t planning on visiting Disney World again until October (for Halloween) so this is definitely something to look forward to (especially since I’ll be visiting Disney World just a few weeks after my trip to Disneyland Paris! Hooray for continuing on with my monthly Disney trips!) Speaking of Disney, in honor of the release of Disney’s Zootopia (I am so EXCITED to see it later tonight), I’ve decided to open up three Funko Zootopia Mystery Minis here on the blog today.
