I’ll say it… I adore cryptids. I love Bigfoot, Nessie, the Jersey Devil and especially the Mothman. There’s just something so mysterious about a creature that we’ve only glimpsed but never found real evidence for. Because we discover new animals every day, it almost seems plausible that there could be a giant skunk ape living in a swamp or huge sea creature in a lake. Are they real, are they tulpas or are they mass hallucinations? Maybe we will never really know, but you can show your love of cryptids with a subscription box called Cryptid Crate. Before I begin, I want to send a huge thank you to Derek for sending us the February 2019 Cryptid Crate to unbox. Check out the video below and then keep reading for more information, a discount code and links to shop!
The February 2019 box was a Bigfoot lover’s dream, for sure. This is a monthly subscription box built by a two person team of Derek Hayes and his fiance, Sarah Carter. This is the only crate I have seen that is dedicated to the love of cryptids and cryptozoology.
The first items in the February 2019 Cryptid Crate was a Sasquatch magnet by CitySquatch. This little Bigfoot is actually wearing a cute tiny Cryptid Crate t-shirt. It’s not a super strong magnet, but it is a great addition to any refrigerator. The next item in the box was a book by Christopher L. Murphy called Yale and the Strange Story of Jacko the Ape-Boy. I have actually heard of this story before, but I am excited to have it for some summer poolside reading. It is a thinner book, so it’s perfect to take along with you. One item I really wasn’t able to get a good picture of was a white decal in the box that said, “My chupacabra loves me.” I love decals and this one is simple but pretty cute. But there was another item in the box that was my favorite.
SOCKS! I adore crazy, fun socks, and these are fantastic. They’re so stretchy and comfortable, which make them big leg friendly, and I appreciate that. I love that these Sasquatch socks that turn my footsies into bigfeet. They are definitely my favorite item in the box.
The last item in the box was a special shirt that is only available in one place, therefore making it a pretty exclusive item that was donated to Cryptid Crate. It was a black shirt featuring the Flatwoods Monster/Flatwoods Green Monster/Braxton County Monster (it has a lot of names). We’ve even reviewed a movie about it. This shirt is only available at the museum in West Virginia, and the museum donated the shirts to Cryptid Crate for the February 2019 box. I love this shirt, and I have always been slightly unsettled by the original drawing of the monster. The shirt fits very well and I just love it.
That’s it for the February 2019 Cryptid Crate. Because of my lifelong love of all things cryptid, I really did enjoy this box, and my favorite items were the Sasquatch socks and the Flatwoods Monster shirt. If you need some cryptid love in your life, use the code POPHORROR19 for $2 off of your very first box, which runs at about $39.99 per delivery. You can shop for the April box HERE.
