What's in the Box?!?: August Funko Disney Treasures

Welcome back! This week, we’ll be unboxing the new Funko Disney Treasures subscription box. As always, this bi-monthly box includes at least one Pop!, at least one Disney Parks item, a pin, a patch, and other stuff. All the items are exclusive to the box.

This month’s theme is Tiny Town. According to the insert, “The residents of Tiny Town may be small, but sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart!”

As usual, this box is decorated with a destination sticker for this month’s destination. The stickers for previous destinations are also printed on the lid, giving the impression of a crate that is traveling around the Disney Treasures world. The map inside the box lid has updated the journey as well, showing the path from Festival of Friends (the last box) to Tiny Town. (A fresh destination sticker is included in the box as well, as usual.)

Upon opening the box, we see this month’s patch and pin.

The patch this month is Dot, from A Bug’s Life. Once again, this is part of a set that will fit together with the other patches from the first year of this box series to make one big mega-patch.

The pin (apologies for the slightly out-of-focus photo) is of Gus, one of the mice from Cinderella.

Once again, the pin-back is the official Disney Mouse Ears pin-back, just like all the other collectible pins you can get at the Disney Parks. So pin completists who aren’t subscribing to these boxes are missing out.

Upon opening, we see the folded paper insert detailing the contents of this box and revealing the next box’s theme. I will show the contents side at the end of this blog, but here’s the reveal of the next theme: the Haunted Forest!

Once the insert was lifted out, it was pretty easy to see all the contents of this box, and I was pretty happy.

Funko had already revealed that the Pop! this month would be Tinkerbell. In fact, on their podcast, they revealed that she would be mounted on a base, so it looked like she was flying, and both the base and wings would not only be sparkly, but also would glow in the dark. To be honest, we haven’t tested the glow part yet, but I really love the sparkles and the pose.  

The Parks item this time is a Dorbz ride from It’s a Small World, featuring characters from Holland and Mexico. It’s super cute. The contents description says there’s also a Dorbz Ride available as a Parks Exclusive, featuring kids from Africa and Asia, and now I want that as well.

One of the things I love about the Dorbz Ridez is that they will hold any Dorbz figures. So I decided to have a little bit of fun.

The final item that has been included in every single Disney Treasures box to date is a Mystery Mini figure in a tin box. This time around, it’s Jiminy Cricket in a Gepetto’s Workshop box. The detail on the figure is fantastic, and the art on the box is adorable. The tin box also serves as a nice display accessory.

Here is the insert showing the contents of the box.

Overall, it’s another great Disney Treasures box, and now we’re really looking forward to the Haunted Forest. We love movies like Nightmare Before Christmas, and we love rides like the Haunted Mansion. Funko has already released a spoiler for one of the figures, and it’s one of my wife’s favorites. However, it’s not a Haunted Mansion item, so we’re really hoping for something from that ride as well.

Because this week's blog is all about Funko stuff already, I'm not adding a Pop! of the Week this time around.

That’s it for now. See you next week!
