Romantic Japanese Snacks! Bokksu February 2019 Tasting Box Review

We got our February 2019 Bokksu tasting box of Japanese Snacks, and it was a box we fell in love with!

With the theme of “A Love Story”, this tasting box was filled with all sorts of sweets and chocolates, spicy savory snacks, and a fruity tea that paired well with everything. Check out the video to see what mysterious foods we tried, and what we thought of them! And of course, Happy Valentine’s Day, or ハッピーバレンタイン!

Custom WWF Hasbro Championship belts from Wrestling Figure Workshop – Review

We love our vintage WWF Hasbro figures, but we were robbed of having championship belts for these toys during our youth. Today, that all changes!

Thanks to the UK-based Wrestling Figure Workshop, we now have classic style WWF Heavyweight, Intercontinental and Tag Team titles for our 90s era figures (which also fit Mattel’s WWE Retro line too)! Take a look at the video to see what they are like, and if they are worth picking up for your wrestling toy collection.
