box! .Sugoi mart Advent calendar honest review. This advent calendar promises Japanese Mystery boxes, snacks, diy candy kits, etc. Is this the best advent calendar 2022? Is it worth it? Note The Owner of the company has reached out to me and explained the price of shipping is closer to $40 and that this advent calendar should have had more hard hitting items (price-wise), however, it did not.

I wish I could afford Bokksu, but $50 USD a month is pretty steep...I wish they'd offer a half size and offer a shellfish/seafood free option. I'd be cool with 10-12 snacks for $25/mo, especially if there wasn't any squid, crab, etc.

Wow, that went downhill fast. I'm from Germany where advent calendars were invented, so this is personal to me. Over here, we celebrate and get our presents on Christmas Eve, December 24, so door 24 is supposed to be special! Instead, they picked what's easily the worst item of the entire disappointing calendar. Dear advent calendar producers: A discount code should never ever be the only surprise of the day, it just feels like a cheap way to push another order on you.

The shipping is probably one of the more valuable parts of the whole thing. Yeah, shipping from Japan to NA is expensive but EMS does not mess around. One time I ordered a package from Japan on 12/21 and with EMS shipping it was at my house on 12/24! Trying to excuse the terrible value of the items in the calendar itself because of shipping costs is such an incredible cop out because Japanese post didn't drop the ball - Sugoi Mart did.
@allisonb8912 Жыл бұрын
Would make more sense if they lowered the price of the calendar and just charged for shipping. But they probably know that high shipping costs are a big deterrent for purchasers, so instead they raised the price of the calendar to try to trick you into thinking you're getting a $250 value.
@Gamyeon Жыл бұрын
It’s also still quite silly for them to blame shipping because even if you count that shipping price and let’s say we forgo the VAT and customs Jackie had to pay, the value still doesn’t come up to the 150$ price point (it barely reaches 80$). Scam through and through.

For anyone interested, the Tamagotchi is a typical Tamagotchi Nano called Evatchi (Evangelion x Tamagotchi) and is worth about £20-30 or $25-$35usd. Nano tamas definitely have a huge following but they are certainly cheap compared to the mainline ones.

And I've noticed this trend all over even before 2020.

One thing I noticed on the website was the advent calendar pictured was different. There’s a blueish one and a green one. It’s got 2 big boxes as the end days and it’s only 25 days. I think they mixed up the advent calendar and 30 days of Japan. Normally advents are 25 days. I got the other and it was the same type of stuff. Many days with candy. The capsule toys were really hard to get out. It’s cheap stuff. I ordered a New Years lucky bag so hopefully better

I’m from Australia and we have quite a variety of advent calendars. You can get basic ones that just have a little chocolate in each day. Or ones that have stationary, actually from popular companies like Smiggle, but they’re expensive, about $80 if I remember correctly. Or you can get ones that are little wooden boxes in a little shelf(?) shaped as a Christmas tree, that you can put your own stuff in. You can even get Lego ones. In 2021 I got one that has little Harry Potter Legos in it, which is pretty cool because they actually go with the Lego sets you can buy. Going back to the ones with chocolate. You can get ones with Lindt chocolate (my favourite) or a Cadbury one that’s huge, and has the mini sized bars in it. Edit: my birthday is the 5th (not in December) so I guess I’m only work 10-30 cents…..

I got this "advent calendar" (which the company followed up with me and said it's actually a 'month of Japan' and NOT an advent calendar... because now they have a separate ADVENT calendar.. anyway) before watching this video and your experience was spot-on. I was expecting ~$150-200 worth of goods in it, because that's what the listing claimed. Opening the first few days was a good start and I was feeling good that the rest of the calendar would have in it. Then.. from day 4 onward it was pretty sad pickings. The gacha balls were a particular sticking point with me too -- I have small fingers and couldn't get them out of the little tray/hole for the life of me either. The things I got in my calendar were overall pretty similar with some differences (also got J-hope and had NO idea who it was haha). I got gum where you got little chocolates, instead of the little candy-balls in 3D triangle packaging I got condensed milk-balls, a demon-slayer figurine, a geisha face-mask... etc. This could have been an amazing calendar (advent or not) and I'm kinda disappointed. I'd happily pay $80-100 plus shipping, but it's not worth what they're charging right now; at least to me.

Twisted Wonderland is a gacha game! And AH! You got my favorite boy! The cast of Twisted Wonderland was "twisted" (read: inspired by) the Disney villains. Riddle in particular was twisted from the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. The whole thing was designed and written by Yana Toboso of Black Butler fame. I totally recommend looking into it. It's one of my favorite canon right now. There's a manga series and a bunch of light novels out rn if you're not into the gacha gameplay but want to check it out. Also I got Furikake on my birthday day on this calendar.

Hey Jackie!! I am a tamagotchi lover and indeed that tamagotchi is an evangelion themed one from the NANO series!! Don’t worry since it is official, the nanos are pretty easy to figure out once you read the instructions but it’s a shame they didn’t include any :(, I hope this bad experience doesn’t make you back off from tamagotchis overall since they’re awesome virtual pets and very charming creatures :)

Was it a cheap one?
@deadvaati Жыл бұрын
@@Userhandleidk in terms of tamagotchi prices, more or less! The nanos are a relatively cheap line of tamagotchis since they’re pretty basic, but what’s unique about them is that they are themed with different franchises like movies or shows and each has a little unique mechanic and their own sprites :) one of them is around 25€ on Amazon at the moment

@@Userhandleidk Kinda, they are about the same price as the classic 90's type ones they sell, but the nano line is specifically the one they use to tie in with other media; movies, anime, games, Disney/Pixar, the egg character, etc. People collect them. The expensive Tamagotchi lines these days are the Smart, and the Pix, those are in full colour and such. I think the Pix I got was like £50, the Tama Smart would be more expensive to import.

My birthday falls on the 7th. So the Sakura Mochi plush was on mine. It's super cute. But the overall advent calendar... doesn't look as good as I'd hoped. I was debating buying one for my daughter, but she watched this review as well and we both decided it wasn't worth it. She said she'd find a better one if she wants a big one one year. Thank you for doing these reviews, they help a lot with knowing what is worth it or not. Sidenote I did recognize all the figurines and stuff you got toy wise from it. Most of these things are like you said, common and easy to get from local stores and dollar stores in Japan. I'm sure someone already clarified the items you didn't recognise though.

Okay, because I’m a curious nerd…. On the Sugoi Mart website, some of these items are priced as follows: The cat plushie $60 (add batteries; it repeats 3 seconds of whatever you say) The Eva Tamogatchi $55 The KitKats $4.80 for the set of 5 ($10 for a bag of 11) The BTS J Hope figurine $20 (discounted from $30) That’s about $140 for 4 of the 30 items. Now those items would be ALOT more fun and impactful if they came with info/instructions (case in point - the repeating cat). The value is there but only if you’re excited about the fandoms you get and know what to do with these products. No info makes it really hard to enjoy a product fully & properly.
