January 2016 CubeForme "Revolution" Review
Back in February, I won a giveaway for the January “Revolution” CubeForme box. After talking with the owners of CubeForme, they offered to give me a December “Artisan” box for review, which you can learn about here:
I really liked the “Artisan” box. With that in mind, I was excited when the “Revolution” box came in a few days ago.
Unlike the “Artisan” box, which contained three sculptures that were 3d-printed, the “Revolution contains a single item: a 3d-printed clock.
I knew ahead of time that the box would contain one item versus the three items in the previous box, so I was prepared for that. I’ll admit, however, that I was less fond of this box than the previous one, and I think that’s partially because the existence of only one item means that my view of the box is dependent on that sole item.
I enjoy the look of the clock and I appreciate the time it took to make. I had a frustrating time getting the battery inside and I’m not confident the clock tracks time accurately - it seems to slow down little by little, so each day it gets a minute or so behind. With that being the case, I’m a bit disappointed in this month’s CubeForme. The idea was cool, but the execution could’ve used work.
At the same time, I stand by CubeForme as a way for subscription box enthusiasts to experience new innovations. This month was a miss for me, but CubeForme still has a great concept and I believe they can deliver great items. I’ve paid for the next box, themed “Gamer”, and I look forward to receiving it. As always, I’ll post a review on Monthly Box Hub so you can judge for yourself what I receive.
