Take a look at Tony Graff‘s short newest unboxing video. There is no explanation in the video for the hat Tony is wearing. I’ve got a similar one. I do somehow like the idea of shooting unboxing videos while wearing large hats. More importantly, what did Tony get? Watch the video…
In his latest unboxing video Tony (YouTube channel here) unboxes a couple new packages ordered by the bot. As Tony says, the packages come from all over the world. I’ve recently added in a few more US vendors and sites based in other countries to the bot’s database.
The bot has a new keyword ‘Valentine’ that you can login and add to your account (or add a new address for your loved one and send them Valentine-related items).
Along with a few Valentine-related surprise packages which might take a bit longer to arrive… for all addresses with ‘Valentine’ selected by February 1st, the bot will order a couple of these hand carved wooden hearts (see picture, colors will be a surprise). These ship from the US, so they should arrive by the 14th. The bot has already sent out a few of these and they’ve all gotten good feedback.
So add ‘Valentine’ to your account by Wednesday if you’d like to get a couple of these little hearts. They are each about an inch long.
Airycha has been very busy. Take a look at the latest unboxings of what surprises the bot has been sending her. I do wonder about the variety of packing materials. All these packages are from overseas. But some look professionally handled, and some seem to arrive in little trash bags super glued shut.
I recently met up with subscriber Andrew in Chicago, who brought along this little pair of droids that the bot sent him. Lego is one of the top keywords, as you can see here and here. About 5% of all packages the bought buys are either Legos or similar mini-figures, like these ones. There are a few funny things that we noticed about these figures. First, notice that the BlockWorks logo is ‘Collect Them All’, borrowing generously from Pokemon for some reason. Also it is unclear what the black droid is doing with a blue button on it’s head. My theory is that it got accidentally thrown in at the factory. Or perhaps it is a light so that the drone can’t run off without you seeing where it is!
If you have a minute, watch Tony Graff‘s latest unboxing video, featuring two packages and the recurring lies that sellers put on the customs forms. As Tony mentioned, the bot does buy through Amazon (about 10% of all packages ordered). They are a bit more expensive, but do arrive faster. I do like the 3d glasses in the background!
Our friends at Monday Madness have put together a special Christmas unboxing video and have really outdone themselves. Check them out on Twitter here and YouTube here. I make an appearance myself at the end of this video as I managed to fit in some unboxing when in Dublin last weekend.
