@hamjudo Got it. The contents were, starting from the red bag in the center and going clockwise: 1. Red bag says "meh", "meh.com" and "lucky bag" in Japanese. 2. Trip glasses with a "Seizure warning". See how to make your own http://archive.makezine.com/10/brainwave/ or if you're local, ask me about taking mine. That sort of thing often gives me headaches. I met Mitch Altman, the designer, at a Penguicon a few years ago. 3. "Cow are you today?" talking mug. Very annoying as is. I think of it as a mug with an electronics compartment and a switch to detect when it is picked up. Any suggestions on something else I could put in the base? 4. Ceramic San Diego Chargers helmet shaped candy dish. Also available to someone local. 5. Sony Dream Machine speaker dock compatible with the iPhone 6. It is also an AM/FM alarm clock that allows different alarms for weekdays and weekends. So I'm ignoring the dock and using it as an alarm clock. 6b. the AM antenna and remote control for the Dream machine. 7. Peanut butter and Jelly spreader. Also available for someone local. 0. (not shown), 9 bags of Texas Air.
@bluedyn 9/22? WHere do you live? Across the street from them ? MIne says 9/24 and I am in MS. You might be first for arrival. Please do post the absolute second after you get it along with package size and weight… since we now have 2 weights posted here so far 3 pounds and 10.3 pounds.
@GFunk I think they must be sending them out in order that we ordered them perhaps? I was in the first dozen or so and I'd guess they have to finish the packing and shipping on Mon. since there were 1002 of them being sent out. Gonna take someone some serious time to do that.
@BillLehecka Mine just updated from 10x10x10 and 3lb to 15x15x11 and 6.9lb.. Looks like a size/weight that hasn't been mentioned by anyone yet.. but it sounds smaller than everyone else's.. I'm not sure that's a good thing.. haha
3lbs, 10x10x10, 9/22 in North Dallas area. Given that the delivery date is this coming Monday, I'm going to assume the weight is accurate and I will get a baseline fuku. I have a project launch on the 22nd so I probably won't even be home for a few days to check it out. Hope its some funny stuff. My Betty Boop porcelain utensil holder is still representing in the break room at work :)
@Kidsandliz I don't have high hopes. That way I don't get disappointed :) keep an eye on your fuku weight. Sometimes they stick a placeholder weight in there until it arrives at fedex and is scanned/weighed. But I'll definitely be posting my contents!
So, there will be this thread, where we all talk about the size, weight, and estimated delivery date. And then, since this thread will have a couple hundred posts when we actually get our boxes, someone will start another new thread for posting pics, right?
@bluedyn Same here. Well, I visit from my phone about half the time, I guess. I finally gave up on keeping up with the other super long threads. I wouldn't touch them unless I was on my laptop. The scroller extension is at least making it easier on the computer now.
@bluedyn Before the extension, with all the jumping around after pics loaded, it was just too much of a hassle to find the one new comment. The extension is indeed brilliant, and so far, working wonderfully.
@jsh139 OH MY GOSH!! YOU GUYS AREN'T GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!! Just kidding. I haven't opened it yet. I am dealing with family and contractors right now so probably won't be able to get to it until later tonight
Ok, don't know if im the first to post or not.... Here it goes. I received: A pink toy A meh bag Gi joe toy figure Trip glasses Aliens toy figures Mug set And a Sony speaker for iPhone 5 (The sylvania timer was there just because it arrived today also) My birthday was yesterday, so you could hint how I feel. Feels like Meh knew it was, and sent some good stuff. Thanks Meh!
@Kidsandliz 10x10x10 and weighed 3 lbs, according to FedEx. @patti Havn't tried them yet. Just like another user below with his wife wanting to give them away, my mom wanted me to save them for a gift. I was like no, we need them for coffee!
We received and opened our box today. I was all tingly with excitement. And I waited almost an hour for the wife to get home so we could open it together. My self-control staggers the imagination. Here's the scoop:
actual fuku bag!!! Er my gosh. But I bet it actually says something like "your mama sows socks that smell" or "I'm a terrorist. Please inform the authorities and perform a full cavity search on me NOW!" Still, very nice (not the cavity search, the bag).
speaker dock!!! I now finally feel like a full Meh-hican, having successfully resisted your attempts to make me buy one of these pieces of crap--sigh, until you tricked me into paying $5 for a meh fuku box. It does look like a nice one, but there's the phone case issue. For five bucks, we'll figure it out.
light up smiley face yo-yo. Awesome.
strobey bouncy ball. Again, awesome.
amaze-balls Trip Glasses. I'm hoping that these are so good I'll just remove "take acid" from my bucket list. Alas, battery seems to be bad. These really do look like cool crazy silly cheap fun. But with all of this light-up flashy stuff, I'm starting to worry that maybe Irk is trying to induce an epileptic seizure. No one in the house is susceptible, as far as I know; we should soon find out. Ha, I hadn't seen this until now; the glasses in fact warn of seizure hazard. Eek.
XtremeMac Bluetooth speaker converter thingy--which apparently allows me to use any speaker as though it were Bluetooth. Other than just for playing, this may be the thing we use use [sic] the most.
beautiful POW! BOINK! KAPOW! mug set (and they're hugeish and therefore, IMO, practical), which I would totally use, but the wife informs me will be some lucky fool's Christmas gift.
cool PB&J spreader. Again, I'd use it; Merry Christmas, someone.
On top of that, this was a full family experience (excepting daughter, who is married and lives out of state): wife, son, cat, me. A good time was had by all. The cat was heavy into the flashy ball, but I guess he's over it now and more fascinated by the big box.
I'm once again left in an emotional state far too positive for "meh." So I guess this means that you've failed me again. Fuku, meh. Fuku. :-)
@Kidsandliz It lists at the apparently-default 10x10x10 and 3lbs at FedEx. I couldn't find a tape measure and it's too late to know the packed weight (we got that shit all pulled out and scattered by now), but the actual dimensions are probably irrelevant to your purposes anyway.
Just got mine in Dallas. I was expecting the 3 pound 10x10x10 box, but it was actually 18x14x15 and weighed about 10 pounds. It contained:
Meh Bag Refurbished Sony speaker dock Pow! Bonk! Kapow! Mug Set Trip Glasses Fun Funnel shaped like hummingbird Stanley travel mug Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Matchbox van with Roseanne Roseannadanna's picture on the side (LOVE THIS!)
Not bad for my first fuku, but I am still awaiting my kickstarter fuku, so we'll see which one reigns supreme.
This is my first attempt at posting a pic, so I expect something to go terribly, terribly wrong.
@brandon I'm baffled as to why we haven't gotten them yet. They had enough crap in the warehouse to sell 1000 fukus to the unwashed masses, but not enough to send to the Kickstarters they missed? I mean, there can't be that many of us on the Island of Lost Kickstarter Fukus.
@Trillian I filled out my form a bit late but I'm guessing it's just low on the totem. Still a young company and undoubtedly a staff working well beyond standard norms to be get the site rolling. Maybe it means we'll get pinball machines or something!
@phatmass What's up with all these party pooper wives? I'm thrilled that both my husband and I both scored Fukubukuros. Back in the old days we were always thrilled by even the truly crappy bags of crap.
~Praying to the Meh Gods~ Please oh please let me get those Pow Bonk Kapow mugs in my Fukumawhatsit... pleeeeease! Those are totally my kinda thing. :) My box is still logged as 10x10x10 and 3 lbs. Not due to arrive until Friday 9/26. The waiting is so harrrrrd!
Got mine today! PB&J spreader, Sony speaker dock refurbished (nice) Trip glasses, Talking cow mug, Alice in wonderland journal set, XtremeMac BT Home connection and the Fukubukuro bag. Thanks Meh.com!! It's has to be a couple of hundred bucks worth of stuff. FYI the pounds and shipping dimensions were way off.
@ccyoun Mine is still in Texas too. In my house. ;-p The down side for me is that I have to suffer through the other 363 days of the year when I'm not opening a meh fukubukuro but I'm still living in Texas. :-)
Okay, I finally got rid of all the people and opened the Jack. And my fuku
-meh fukubukuro bag -seizure hazard Tripglasses -Sony refurbished speaker dock -Sailor Moon decal candles -GI Joe Cobra Commander action figure from Pepsodent -Matchbox SNL Spartans school bus -hilariously hideous wedding cake wall clock (Can't let my mom see this, she's been trying to get me married off for almost a decade now)
I must admit I'm a little jealous over the mug sets other people got but, all in all, fun times!
@Kleineleh It's just too perfectly awful as @barabee said, not to use somehow. Maybe keep it for friends bachelorette /stag parties ( every time the bride and groom go round the clock take a shot or ?? ) . Or great gag gift if you know of someone having a special anniversary. The possibilities are endless. This could pass around your friends and family for years of entertainment.
Oh my goodness, one of ours (mine, not my husband's!!!) has made it to the local facility already! And, it's been updated from the 3 lb placeholder to 18x15x14 in and 10.2 lbs. Oddly enough, my husband's left the Tx facility an hour earlier than mine and his still hasn't made it to the local facility yet, but I'm thrilled that mine is thisclose, and that it got bigger!
Hmmm 18x15x14. 10.4 pounds. Due Thursday 9/25...I really hope it comes sooner as I work pretty much during the time the mail comes....until 9pm, and knowing it's here waiting for me will make me a very antsy worker! LOL
@wa27 are you sure you have 2 tracking numbers or are you seeing the USPS and Fed Ex links to the same package? The USPS will stay blank until Fed Ex hands the package to the USPS and they take over the delivery to you.
@wa27 I have 2, but they are the same number. When the USPS is clicked it says: "NOT FOUND. Tracking information is not available at this time. Please check back later or double-check the tracking number entered and try again." I think the way they have it set up the numbers were just listed for both.
Ok....so things have changed? A few days ago, it said 3 lbs 10x10x10. I just checked to see what state is was sitting in ( now West Virginia) and it's been updated to 18x15x14 and 10.6 lbs. This appears to be an old ebay trick. You put a small box and weight in to pay for low postage, but then the Fed Ex scanner finds it and updates the numbers.. well played meh, well played.
So far it seems like the Sony Speaker Dock has been in all of the bags so far, right? True to their Meh'ness, we should have known a speaker dock would end up in there. Makes me wonder if the speaker dock was too Meh to sell on its own, lol. More Meh'ness please!
@thumperchick@bluedog Southern Tier is SW of Syracuse. East of and including Syracuse and before the greater NYC is upstate. The North Country (which also includes the Adirondacks, which can also be separate part of the North country ). Downstate is south of the greater NYC area and southeast of Syracuse. At least that's how WNYers see it ;-)
BTW WNY includes Rochester and Buffalo area. And of course there's also the Finger Lakes which is sort of it's own thing too. Borders WNY, ST, and Upstate and is often considered a part of all three ! NY is complicated .
@ceagee@thumperchick I just tell people I'm in the Hudson Valley. They answer "where's that?" "Near West Point Military Academy." I suggest helpfully. After receiving a dazed look of ignorance, I then say "Woodbury Commons Outlet Center?" "Oh yeah! I know that!" with a dawning look of recognition.
@ceagee All I know was when I went to the university of rochester when they said they were going to "the city" they did not mean downtown rochester. Took me a while to figure that one out LOL (I was from OH).
@BrentD Hey since you have been uncancelled maybe you will get some of the cool junk sitting around the office after the office decorating experiment… Be sure to post what you finally get. I know they must have a LOT of HP computers sitting around… LOL
Fuku order placed, Fuku order accepted nearly 6 days ago. I wait. Nearly 6 days later my order status is changed to "Canceled" with no explanation. I contact support and am told "Our system oversold the fuku bags by 2 people. And it turns out that you and one other lucky person were the last two to order and we had to cancel them."
TWO people? Seriously? A site that specializes in Meh crap doesn't have any more crap lying around to account for your TWO person screwup? Come on...
@BrentD I have to believe that they'll make it right somehow if it's just two people. If it were 200 or even 20, maybe not. In fairness to them, I'm betting they're still running some ridiculously thin margins on this whole experiment. But, yeah, I'd be frustrated too.
My unopened Meh box now sits in my car...waiting for me to get off work, go home, and enjoy my Mehdiocrity. However, as I look at the sealed box I ponder holding onto it and perhaps letting it sit a year or so unopened before trying to auction it off on Ebay. I wonder what a vintage unopened Fuku box would go for. And it also makes me think, as popular as the BoCs were/are, why I never tried to do this the three times I actually landed one.
@harrison Heck, I'm gonna be lucky if I can wait the next two hours I still have at work. The more I try not to think about what's in the box, the harder it gets not to find out. Oh well. I shall have my loot posted by days end I imagine.
@Thumperchick My tracking is updated the same… Don't know how they got it from Dallas to Memphis where it is currently sitting but it took them 63.75 hours to do so. It is just a 3.5hour drive to my house from where it is right now. Of course I am, what? about 7 hours from Dallas… hmm 63.75/7=9.11 and 9.11x3.5= 31.89 hours more to get to me…Yup - must be by horseback, on foot, wagon train, unicycle… definitely not tele-transporter
-Red meh bag -PB n J spreader (haha...spread 'me) -an Alien toy labeled as "Alien Wall Relief" --Matchbox Donuts trick w/Jim Belushi from 2002 -trip glasses -cow mug -wall projection alarm clock -bags of air
Tracking showed it scheduled to arrive on Thurs, so meh!
Got my haul today a little early! I don't think there's anything really that I'll keep to use, but there's tons of stuff that will make good Christmas presents to both people I like and people I don't. Very lazy Meh photo of haul below. My husband's bag made it to the local facility and is weighing in at 9.9 lbs now. Will update when his arrives. Thanks, Meh!
Package received - Sony speaker doc - Trip glasses - Cow mug - Swordfish funnel - Tommy Boy drinking glasses (one says "I've got cat like speed and reflexes" the other is fat guy in a little coat) - Meh bag - bags of air
Well this is no fair - mine had delivery on Wed and when I just checked to see if it had left Memphis yet (got there Sunday evening) it suddenly has been changed to delivery on Thurs!!! and it has SAT THERE ALL DAY!!! (says the USPS has been notified to come get it). And Memphis is only 3.5 hours from here.
@Kidsandliz FedEx drops it off at USPS, sometimes at a regional center and sometimes at the delivery unit. Often the drop off is after the carrier leaves to deliver the mail for the day so next day is earliest it can go out.
@speediedelivery In this case it got there Sunday night and was still sitting there when I posted just after midnight last night (still only says info sent to USPS this morning 36+ hours later) Sigh… I guess I prefer snail slow and cheap than faster and costs more...
@Kidsandliz Info sent is not the actual package. It is the tracking info sent electronically saying FedEx will be bringing it. It still could be a few days before it arrives at USPS. Most places USPS will scan it as enroute or arrival at unit when the actual box is dropped off. When FedEx is shorthanded or busy or just put it in the wrong pallet, it can be a week or so before the actual package arrives at USPS.
I almost can't stand how meh this was. Box contents: 1- Red fuku bag (probably reading chicken soup or something meh like). 2- Fly swatters with the words POW! and SPLAT! on them (may the flys tremble with fear!) 1- Cow are you today talking mug (I smell regift...) 1- Chef Pals mooing beef thermometer (light flashes and alarm "moo's" when yoru veef is precisely cooked to USDA standards!) 1- The Monkeys at Home Kitchen and bedroom set (every little girls dram play set) 1- PBn'J spreader (slightly kinky looking, possiable resell as a sex toy on ebay) 1- Trip Glasses sound & light Brain- Machine (Blinking lights and sound guide you into gentle meditation, WARNING MAY CAUSE SEIZURE'S!!!!) 1- Alien Queen wrist watch, tail wraps around your wrist, moveable head (IT'S MINE YOU CAN'T HAVE IT!!) 1- USB Charging Alarm Clock, works with any digital music device that has a headphone jack (It's the dreaded speaker dock!!! At least it takes a samsung....) All in all it was an excptionally undrewelming fuku box. Except for the Alien Queen wrist watch, that alone made this worth the $5 I basically burned in homage to the Meh Gods.......!!
Meh shopping bag Pow Bonk Kapow mug set Sony speaker dock (I don't have an iphone to go with it) Bluetooth speaker converter Aliens wristwatch Chef Pal's Beef Thermometer (looks like a cow and it moos) Trip glasses And the bags of air.
@kadagan Doesn't look like it. The converter only has an audio out, but the speaker dock only has an audio in port. You can connect another mp3 device to the audio port, but just can't use the remote to adjust the mp3 device.
My wife and I got ours today. Pretty standard. Didn't bother taking a photo before the kids started disappearing with the contents. The (2) Sony Ipod/Iphone dock is actually really nice -- if only I had an Iphone or Ipod :) They'll probably be given away to friends.
So my fuku arrived today, two days earlier than predicted. Which is good, cause I didn't have to wail til I got out of work to see the contents.
The haul: One super awesome and favorite toy of my two cats (otherwise known as a box, lol) Sony speaker dock, which is good as I have both iPhone5, and iPod Touch 5 Pow! Bonk! Kapow! Mugset --- Will most likely regift Trip glasses - Totally going to be a gag gift for someone! The Monkeys at Home Playset - Sweet, another gag gift PBn'J spreader - Yes, a gag gift Fun funnel, shaped like a red hummingbird - I was thinking qwirky wall art? And, the Fuku red meh. bag. Which I also love. The cats didn't come with the fuku unfortunately...I would love more than the two I have!
@SavvySapphire I can solve the problem of being short two cats. Where do you live? I have 4 strays that I need to find homes for - One is part lynx siamese but his eyes are a funny combination of blue and yellow, one is a part siamese (body shape, talkative, that off white tan) orange marble, and one is perhaps a mix of lynx siamese and ragdoll if I were to go by the markings and large feet.
@Kidsandliz Awww, they sound adorable! It's hard to tell from the blur that she was, but the white and gray one is a Siamese mix, looks like a bluepoint, but is a feral (or was until she came to live with me and became super spoiled!)
@SavvySapphire I figured the one on the left was part lynx siamese. I left out the 4th cat. She is more or less tabby but has that siamese off white/tan color and blue eyes. The orange marble has a clipped ear so he was feral - but he is like a dog and can't stand to be further than about 5 ' from me at any time, follows me from room to room… All are very sweet babies. I am serious these guys need homes. I can't afford 7 cats. All of mine started out as strays, one was only 10 days old and abandoned. Lived in my pocket for a while.
@Kidsandliz Awww! Yeah, I love Siamese and Siamese mixes. My mom and I both have Siamese mixes that look like blue points. I'd love to take some of yours, but I can barely afford the ones I have. At one point though, I had 7 cats and a dog, so I understand the cost factor! Funny, my girl follows me too!
And it's a very Meh-ry Birthday to me 3 days early!
-9 Bags of Texas Air -1 Meh Bag -1 Sony iPhone 5 Speaker Dock, Refurbished -1 Set of Burger Salt and Pepper Shakers -1 Talking Cow Mug -1 Ying and Yang Light Up Yo-Yo -1 G.I. Joe Loose Figure of The Baroness -1 Pair of Trip Glasses (On the back, it says WARNING, MAY CAUSE SIEZURES" which I wonder if they're anything like seizures...
Mine came, I would upload a picture, but so much work for so little meh... I got: -Sony lightning device dock -a small children rug -pbj spreader -trippy glasses -cow mug -Alice in Wonderland Journal -meh bag
Mine has been updated to 18x15x14" and 9.6 lbs. Still estimated to arrive Saturday. If anyone needs me, I'll be parked over here praying my heart out for those danged pow boom kapow mugs... LOL how pathetic am I.
Arrived yesterday.. same general items, Sony speaker dock (which might actually get some use) the PB&J spreader, the Cow jokes coffee mug, trip eyeglasses (do not try it!), Meh bag and my favorite item.. a Futurama trashcan.. which needed to be bent back into shape. Nice touch Meh!!
@lichme I will keep everyone updated. Cannot contain my excitement. I wonder if they found another gumball machine in the dumpster behind their building although everyone else that got one received a key first. Hmm....
Thanks to @lichme , I learned a way to see packages coming without a tracking number. This new package is 10 lbs but doesn't have any dimensions listed. Interestingly, the Department Number is "z-1-FUKU"
Husband and I both received our boxes today. Nothing new in either one expect maybe the Magnetic Dinosaur Bingo Game. The rest was trip glasses, Elvis cups, Bluetooth converter thingy's, etc. We both did get the Sony iPhone thing, will be handy in this Android household. All in all, lots of stuff to add to our Xmas give-away crap.
@JT954 we have inside contacts at fedex that weigh them for us and text us. or, we look up the tracking# on the fedex site and it says the weight there. also, your second question assumes we have the ability to see the size of your box. i want to know how you found out we have cameras set up all over your house and office. it's not like we're the NSA. or are we...
@JT954 1) Go here: https://meh.com/orders . 2) Click the tracking number. 3) Follow the Fedex Link. 4) It should be under Shipment Facts at the bottom of the main window. Mine still shows the info, which is wrong.
1 x coffee mug set 1 x trippy glasses 1 x refurb iphone dock 1 x Snake Eyes GI Joe figure 1 x Meh fukubukuro bag 1 x chicken thermometer 1 x smiley yoyo Not bad. Already have a buyer lined up for the iphone dock to make my monies back. (assuming it works...)
So, I'm sitting at my desk, and I hear a little bit of a ruckus from the driveway. I'm not expecting anything big, and certainly not anything that requires the delivery truck to use the big lift on the back of it.
I go to look on my porch, and a monstrosity of a box is there, and the shipper is meh.com.
Ooooooooh.....I'm giddy now. So of course, I tear open the box to see what is inside (the box weighs about 25lbs....not anywhere near as heavy as I would have thought).
And what to my wondering eyes appear but pillows, pillows, pillows everywhere!
Er meh gawd........That's a lot of pillows! (29 to be exact).
@l@JonT or he could have the worlds largest pillow fight...scratch that, just looked it up...we're gonna need around 4,200 more pillows to pull that off. @l we're gonna need you to keep collecting pillows for us until we get there.
@peas I saw it, but I'm actually loving my speaker dock. Shhhh, don't tell anyone. Besides, I think meh needs to do a CR-2032 deal. Maybe they can get a shipping container full that are Sony branded or something.
I got the sony refurbished speaker doc - Happy Birthday my daughter on Oct 7 so I need to hide that now (thank you meh for this - she will be thrilled! and I am broke)
The Pow, wow, kapow mugs - again I have the perfect person to give them to for christmas which saves me another present (and frees up one of the $3 headlamps I had bought for this to give to someone else)
The bluetooth thing to make wired speakers wireless - I am keeping this for me maybe (depends if I come up short at christmas for people)
GI Joe toy soldier The matchbox car Of course the meh bag The trip glasses - I might be giving them to someone on my list I have to ask my sister if this would a good gift for her tween Shark funnel - I want to keep this but this also may end up a gift.
The amount of money this $5 saved me on presents for others was so un-meh I feel guilty. But thanks meh. The timing couldn't have been better and the speaker dock is perfect for my daughter as her "big" birthday present.
@Kidsandliz I decided to try my Sony dock even though I have nothing Apple. It has a great radio and you can plug in non-Apple products. I think your daughter will be thrilled with it. The sound is excellant.
@Teripie Thanks for letting me know. Apparently her boyfriend bought her an iphone 4 do you know if it works with that (meaning the thing in the front rather than a usb cord)? I haven't yet pulled it apart enough to find the model number to go look. I'd love it too for me but gotta make sure I have all the presents covered first. Sigh. Didn't realize it had a radio.
Got our Fukus yesterday and they were great (Sorry Meh). My husband and I both got a refurb Sony speaker dock. Mine also contained the Bam Kapow mugs, SNL Swill Matchbox, bag, trip glasses, Sailor Moon candles and scratch and sniff stickers. My husbands contained trip glasses, bag, "Cow Are You Today" talking mug , swordfish funnel and XtremeMac Bluetooth Connect Audio Receiver.
@jenny One of the things I like about meh is their desire to set low expectations. I empathize. I've been telling my wife since the day I met her that I'm a bum. We've been married for almost five years now (and are still quite giddily happy). Now, part of that is that she's so awesome, but I'd also argue that the expectation of meh is working. And I am a bum, which, yaknow, makes me honest. So there's that.
Mine was supposed to come tomorrow, but was just changed to Friday. And considering that it's in WI and normally goes from there to Grove City, OH, and then to my post office, I wouldn't be surprised if it's not Saturday before it gets here. So more anticipation!
So total curiosity here...is there a set number of minimum items per box? Opened my box to find one speaker dock, one bag, and one set of pow/kapow mugs. Wasn't sure if the mugs counted as one or three items. What say you, @JonT@snapster ???
@katblue that's my point, it doesn't, but I don't know if it should. My box just seemed a little more empty than others posted. Just wanted to be sure it was because I'm the goat and not a shipping error is all. :)
@hart appreciate the effort. Upon second look at the box, it does look like it may have been retaped. I weighed the box and contents and it came in at around 8 lbs. no big deal, just glad to know it wasn't mehs fault. Thanks again for your efforts.
@hart Talked to Post office this morning, when the box arrived they didn't notice any openings or causes of concern. Then I contacted the local fedex distribution center, box was re-taped at center after they noticed tape missing on the top of the box, but wouldn't comment on the loss of product. They mentioned they would look into internally to see if any additional boxes were "tampered" with. At least it wasn't Meh's fault!
Son got his and brought to our house to share the unboxing. He got the usual stuff, Sony dock, Bluetooth converter, cow mug. But he did get one thing I haven't seen yet; a Sharper Image Pet-o-Meter, pet pedometer. It's prefect for his overweight dogs!
The speaker dock is a lightening connector. I know you can plug something that needs a 30 pin connector in the back via the usb port (eg using the device's charging cord)- however if you do that does it also charge the device while you are using it? Also does anyone know where to find a "male end 30 pin to female end lightening adaptor"? Radio Shack doesn't have one, been on the phone for the last 1/2 hour with an apple employee who, I think, knows less than me - I had to figure out what was on the end of an iphone 4 (my kid's phone) to even know what kind of adapter we needed for that end. She didn't even know that. Geesh. HELP! (and thanks) ok apple doesn't make one.
@hallmike I am going to have to find some sort of adapter as this sony dock has no usb port that I can find. If I can't get one somewhere then I guess it won't work as my kid's best birthday present ever (well she'd love a car but I need to replace the ghetto van first LOL)
@KDemo Search ebay using this exactly (did not find anything on amazon but maybe someone else can find something) "30 Pin male" to "Lightning 8-Pin female" Adapter however it would appear that for speaker dock use you need a 4s and not a 4
@Kidsandliz Thanks. I have an iPad 2 and an older iPod. It seems very strange that simple adapters are so hard to find. Is it because Apple is so proprietary? That's what I really don't like about them. Sorry Woz.
@hallmike I appreciate your efforts! I now have to decide if I am going to buy it off of amazon or ebay since in reviews it can come DOA. Opinion as to which is safer with respect to getting your money back?
@Kidsandliz Personally I would go with Amazon but I have not tried to return anything to either site. Now I need to see if there is a lightning to android adapter so I can use my dock. BTW, it's admirable that you put the kids first in your username. Unless I'm reading it wrong and you are Kid Sand Liz from your days on the professional competitive sand sculpture circuit.
Got mine today. Sony dock, fish-shaped funnel, Trip Glasses, Meh bag, Mug set, and a "Monkeys at home" playset. I was hoping for the bluetooth receiver, but I can't complain about that sweet Sony dock! Oh, and no note, which means my extra tracking number must be a mistake after all. Meh.
Package arrived here today &, just for fun, opened it at the front desk of my apartment building (Michaela enjoyed watching). We got the Meh bag, cow are you today? talking mug, nifty refurb Sony speaker dock, South Park lunch box, Stanley leak-proof drink thru mug, trip glasses...an embarrassment of mehness riches. I'm not one bit frightened away, you guys.
Meh Fuku Lucky Bag Sony Large Alarm Dock (No Apple product in this house.)

@JazzyJosh I preordered through bleep this time to get on the ballot for the limited edition. And a lot of times my preorders from bleep will come with random swag in the box. This time it was just the sticker and a card it says you can turn in for an album. And I didn't get picked in the ballot.
Ok....so....this is a follow up to my other fuku box, which contained 29 throw pillows (scroll up to see the insanity of pillows).
In addition to the crapload of pillows, I had, what I thought, was a "regular" fuku box on it's way, with the usual Meh bag and mugs, etc. So.....I was not surprised when another box showed up at my doorstep, this time delivered by the USPS instead of Fedex. The box looked normal....
Until I opened it up....
At this point in time, I want to make the very public statement that someone at Meh.com has an extremely awesome and twisted sense of humor.
Contained in my "regular" fuku box was:
64 ounce bottle of Mrs. Butterworth's Original syrup 2 boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese (the cheesiest) 1 1996 Corvette Convertible Yellow collectors model car.
Days ago I was all excited that mine was going to be here 9/22. So here it is 9/24 and my box was allegedly delivered already. Lying liars. I now have a case # with the USPS. Why couldn't they lose/steal my Cool Gear Food Storage box last week instead?
While I was really hoping for a belated birthday letter, I certainly can't complain! Ironically, I already own what is essentially the exact same clock/dock with the 30 pin connecter. It just didn't make sense to buy another one just for the lightning connector. I'm quite thrilled with this! The haul:
Said clock/dock Trippy seizure inducing glasses Talking cow mug BBQ grill salt & pepper set The very poorly reviewed bluetooth adapter The pièce de résistance - meh bag
I received my box and all I can say is meh. It contained Sony refurb speaker dock, I might just use it as a big, ugly clock. Talking cow mug Peanut butter and jelly spreader Wonder Woman photo album Hummingbird funnel Red Meh bag Trip Glasses (dead battery). To try these out, I took the battery out of the speaker dock (most useful it will ever be) and put it in the glasses. The lights immediately started, and when I pressed the button, they would turn off only as long as the button was pressed. These were certainly meh, the inventor, Mitch, if the instructions are to be trusted, clearly had a very mediocre understanding of how buttons and switches work.
@lcastil1 I do get sound. Just another testament to the manufacturing quality that Mitch continues to push to the upper limit. I did just let it run for 14 minutes and was surprised to see it turn off. I figured that they fact that it turned on the moment I put the battery in, and only paused when I held the button that it was defective.
Got mine today… really disappointed that I didn't get the Sony alarm clock that everyone else is getting. As I just bought an iPhone 6+, it no longer fits on the current alarm clock I'm using. That larger Sony one would've been so perfect!
But here I am… looking at a basic alarm clock that projects the time on the ceiling. That's what I got.
Meh, if you looking at this, I am begging you… send me some sort of lightning-compatible smartphone dock of the alarm variety! I need it so much more than these Android-loving pagans who will toss it into the attic and never look at it again!
Very happy with my fukubukuro box. 1x Meh bag 1x Hummingbird funnel (more like a displeased cow with ears) 1x The Monkeys at Home "Kitchen and Bedroom" playset 1x Trip Glasses 1x Pow! Bonk! Kapow! mug set 1x Sony Speaker dock (guess we've found out that there is a price at which people will always buy a speaker dock)
Meh bag Talking Cow Mug Sony Speaker dock (which works quite well with my 5s and an adapter - I may actually use this) PB&J spreader Trip Glasses Xtreme Mac BT dongle Little Miss Sunshine Rug (my daughter actually loves it)
I likes mine! I got: Meh bag Seizure glasses Aliens "watch" (just a small sculpture of the alien with a very flexible tail and a broken LCD in the center) The mooing beef thermometer cow and the Creative 2.1 speaker set!
The speakers are great! I also used the cow thermometer already to cook steaks. It works fine and everyone loves it. Thanks Meh!
Sony iPod/iPhone speaker dock (non-iPhone owner and I already have a speaker dock for my iPod nano) Plastic Darth Vader head, missing the Bazooka gum (someone at Meh is gonna have a lot of cavities at their next dentist visit.) Ka-Pow mug set Trip glasses SNL Swill truck matchbox XtremeMac bluetooth speaker adapter thingy Red Meh bag
Overall, I'm thrilled with the Mehness of my fukubuckaroo bag. Absolutely nothing I can use, but plenty of stuff for my next yard sale.
I envy those who got the cow mug and/or South Park lunchbox.
My sony speaker dock with radio does not seem to have a usb port like some people have unless I am totally blind. Is it hidden somewhere? Also I need a "30 Pin male to Lightning 8-Pin female Adapter" and can only find them the other way around (eg 30 pin female, 8 pin male)
OK found this adaptor on ebay (anyone find it on amazon - I can't seem to) and searched exactly "30 Pin male" to "Lightning 8-Pin female" Adapter however it only works with the 4s and not the 4 with respect to speaker docks
Found it on amazon finally when I searched exactly this: "30 Pin male" to "Lightning 8-Pin female" Adapter it looks like quality control is uneven looking at the reviews. Some work and some do not, although some complaints of not working might be they are trying to use it with an iphone4 (where is does not work) rather than with an iphone 4S
@cengland0 I think there are several versions of this floating around. You and I got the no usb port one unfortunately as it makes it being backwardly compatible harder and more expensive (eg have to buy an adapter).
It arrived today... -10 bags of Texas air -Red Meh bag -A light-up yoyo that I broke immediately -GI Joe Snake Eyes action figure (complete with a sweet-ass machine gun) -Water ring toss toy -Trip glasses -Bluetooth speaker converter -POW! BONK! KAPOW! mugs -Sony speaker dock
@JT954 If your dream machine has a 30 pin rather than lightening attachment for an iphone I will trade you. Then I won't have to buy an adapter for an iphone 4s to be able to use it. Giving it to my kid on her birthday and unfortunately she does not have an iphone 5 to be able to use it. Mine has no usb port so she can't use it that way either.
@barnabee Yes there are different kinds. Some people got one that on the back is has the same kind of port that you put a thumb drive (memory stick, usb drive) in it. That kind we can use because then my daughter can use the cord she attaches to her charging plug and instead plug in there. Mine does not have that. Another version, on the front, has a 30 pin plug that sticks up. That is the "old style" apple plug that iphone 4 and older has, older ipods, etc. That is the kind I need. Then some have the newer tiny 8 pin lightening attachment for the newer iphones (5 and 6) and newer ipods. This kind I have to buy an adapter for my kid to use it (unless they have the usb port, of which mine does not but some have) and apparently enough of them are DOA that it may take several tries to get a working one.
@barnabee the 30 pin or 8 pin will be on the front above the word sony that in the photo below is covered by that clear stuff. The usb port, if you have one, is apparently on the back, according to others.
i got the bag, sony speaker dock, cow coffee mug, bluetooth speaker thingy, alice in wonderland red queen diary, and the trip glasses. I've been wanting to buy the trip glasses for a while (and really should have when i was at a con that mitch attendend). The battery in the glasses was going bad, they were just lighting up solid red and no sound so i popped it open and put in a fresh 2032 and they work great now.
