I’m so far behind in everything that I have two months worth of Rad + Hungry kits to share with you today. The first is the May 2012 kit from Hungary.
It was wrapped so beautifully with the doll-topped pencil and paper protractor (that’s what those are called, right?) that I had to photograph the package.
Inside was two notebooks and a highlighter and a pen. Plenty of goodies for notetaking or jotting down the details of my next summer trip!
The June 2012 kit from Rad + Hungry is from Norway and it was full of Viking cool — Viking brand pencil and notepad that is! The large black pad is aA5-sized and is dot grid on the front of each sheet, blank on the back. The small white notebook is staple-bound and blankety-blank-blank. A clean slate for thoughts, doodles and flashes of brilliance. There was a lovely neon papercut inspired by the graphics on the notebook that accompanied the package as well as a Nordic Cool mini-print.
The pencil looks fabulous and I may do a further testing of it in the future. The lead looks thicker than a standard pencil so it may be prefect for sketching.
Everything about Rad + Hungry is totally rad, from the well-planned, fantastically-wrapped packages to the excellent customer service. If you haven’t tried them out yet, what are you waiting for? Might I recommend the Trinidad set with the awesome roll of self-adhesive labels or the Turkey set for the grid notebook? Its traveling via paper goods so if you can’t travel at least you can feel as if your good friend brought you some goodies back from their trip.
