Retro Planet Review and Giveaway



I don’t know about all of you guys and gals but I for one love anything to do with retro! I especially love anything related to retro cartoons!!! Well I’ve got a bit of a treat for all of you retro lovers who read my blog…I was recently able to join up with Retro Planet for a review and of course we can’t forget about all my lovely reader an awesome giveaway!! As soon as I had a few spare minutes to surf around their selection, I immediately fell in love with all the awesome products they have available!

About Retro Planet (taken from website):

Our mission, our goal, our passion is to provide people all over the world with a great selection of cool retro products at excellent prices, an easy-to-use secure and informative web site and outstanding customer service.

From our retro decorated office and warehouse in Nashua, NH., the employees of Retroplanet.com work everyday to complete our mission.

Thanks for visiting us and if you are considering purchasing some retro products online we ask that you give us a chance, we won’t let you down.

Our Thoughts:

I was given a gift certificate to do a little bit of shopping at RetroPlanet.com and I can’t tell you how excited I was to even get started! Since my blog is obviously cartoon related it was only right for me to choose a product that was relevant to blog, after lots of searching I finally decided to choose the Popeye Characters Flexible Figure Set (pictured above). I chose this item for several reasons the first being I loved Popeye when I was a kid and I figured “Bug” would enjoy playing with these, and of course I was right!

Shopping at RetroPlanet.com was so easy and the selection is amazing! I have done a lot of shopping online over the past few years and I have to admit that my experience at RetroPlanet was one of the most pleasant and enjoyable shopping experiences I’ve ever had! To start with they have well over 6,000 products to choose from so the selection as you can imagine is awesome! But I also know what your thinking….that’s an awful lot of items to go through to find the perfect gift or item for yourself….well they help you with that too, they have a really nifty little search bar at the top of their homepage that allows you to type in the keywords or items you are searching for and it pulls them right up…..easy peasy!

And I bet your wondering about the checkout and shipping process huh? Well of course you are…these are also super simple and shipping is lighting fast. After making my decision on the item I wanted to order, it arrived within 7-10 days of my order. My item arrived packed securely and in perfect order! I could not be happier with my entire experience!

Bottom Line:

I could not be more pleased with the customer service and shopping experience with RetroPlanet.com!! Their selection is amazing with way to many products to list in the amount of time and space I have available. I have now found the perfect place to get all the cool retro gifts I know my friends and family will love!

If you are looking for a relaxing, and super online shopping experience I highly recommend shopping at RetroPlanet.com!
