The process to decide what goes in a Robot Flyer box is rigorous and takes a lot of time. It's fun for sure, but it's also a job we take seriously. Every day we scan Japanese pop-culture websites to see what's hot. Every few days we walk to our favorite shops and through neighborhoods around Tokyo to observe what locals are wearing and buying.
What jumps out at us? What makes us send photos of it to our friends immediately? We add items that we’re excited about to our internal database and review it weekly to filter down to what still bring us joy (and is within budget).
1. What specifically is inside the box?
It's impossible for us to know what will go in the boxes until right before we ship them. Roll the dice.
2. Is this a good gift for kids?
There may be some items in the box appropriate for kids, but no, this isn’t a box for kids and we assume it’s being purchased by adults. We do our best to ensure the items are not tied to a specific gender and there is a range of items that appeal to a variety of interests.
3. What kind of snacks are in the box
The snacks are vegan (no animal products).
4. Can we return the items if we don’t like them?
Nope, sorry, there are no returns. We're certain that some of your favorite people will be delightfully surprised to receive the items you don’t want.
5. When do you ship?
The Winter Surprise Box will ship at the beginning of December 2017 from Japan so that it has the best chance of arriving at its destination before Dec. 25th.
6. Will you offer other boxes?
Yes, the next box will be available in Spring 2018. Join the Robot Flyer newsletter.
