Unboxing is a big trend on YouTube. Basically it’s a video of someone opening a package of something, showing what it REALLY looks like not just what the ads or the catalog show. I recently decided that people might want a look at my Laura Ingalls Wilder collection purchases so I’ve put together some Unboxing Videos. Some are going to be mail orders and I figure I’ll do my treasures I get in person from the giftshops. Take a look!
Unboxing Videos One By One
So far I’ve done four and here they are!
Unboxing Mansfield – This an order of a few small things I wanted, plus their new china shepherdess replica.
Unboxing Laura Ingalls Wilder T-Shirt Party – For various reasons I happened to get several T-shirts from a couple of the homesites at once. I have an extra mannequin torso laying around – like you do – and used it to model the T-shirts. I don’t think I’ll have the heart to show them on a hanger again!
Unboxing Pass Around Basket – Depending the program and the audience I sometimes take a small bushel basket of touchables with me when I present. I bought some burlap to upgrade my basket and that gave me an excuse to share with you everything in my basket.
Unboxing Cat’s Meow – This time we get Independence’s version of a shepherdess figure and the new batch of Cat’s Meow collectibles kicked off by Lauri Goforth.
Those are all I’ve done so far, but just to keep this update, here’s the link to the playlist which should show any future episodes. They show up in the as loaded order so it will always show the top video again in the preview. Check the top right hand corner for the 1/x, x being however many I currently have or just click on it to open the full list and check the end.
