Towards the end of last year I started collecting Funko Pop Vinyl figures. A Funko Pop is a figure that comes in a box. There are hundreds of them to collect including tv, film and Disney ones. My very first Pop that Neil bought me was Lumière (the candlestick man) from Beauty and The Beast. Lumière is my favourite Disney character of all time. When I went to Disneyland Paris a few years ago I tried to find things with Lumière on but they didn't even have a pin badge so when I saw they had released a pop of him I had to have him.

So over Christmas I got a few more pops and my collection grew from there. Neil has also started collecting a few too.
Then I discovered a brilliant website called Pop In A Box - which is a postal subscription service dedicated to Funko Pop collectors. So I signed up and subscribed to receive one surprise Pop a month (you can subscribe for up to six Pops a month). At the start of January they took the money out of my account for one Pop which was £8.50 and postage. The great thing about the Pop In A Box site is you can go through and thumbs up the Pops that you want and thumbs down the Pops you aren't interested in. So you know you are going to get a Pop that you want. You can also keep track of all the Pops you own by adding them to your collection so you don't get duplicates.
So a little later in January my Pop In A Box arrived. I was so excited to open it. I opened up the box and was so chuffed to receive a really cute Dumbo the elephant Pop and a little packet of popping candy. The packaging was great and the Pop was snug in the box with no damage at all. Dumbo is a great addition to my growing collection. I love all the Disney Pops.
Here is my Pop I received from Pop In A Box this month. He is so cute.

I would highly recommend Pop In A Box to anyone who wants to collect Pops and receive a surprise in the post each month. I was so impressed with the service I have upped my subscription to two for February. So excited!!!
