I don't recall the box being mentioned, but gotta say that I'm really digging the new box for the new year.
And now has the logo on the sides too.

Glad you like it! I was actually inspired by a birthday cake when I designed it, LOL!

That would be the most important desert of the year!

I see a pending Valentines theme for the February set.  Dare we hope to get them before Easter?  Possibly St. Patrick's Day?  Ah well, I shall buy them and enjoy them as I usually do.  The concept people and artists do such a great job every month, I can't deny myself the enjoyment of their work.     :D

Thanks!  The concept writers, as well as the artists (I'm sure), always try to add several
holiday themed concepts each month, and hopefully many of them made the "final cut,"
we'll see tomorrow when it's released.

Let's show the people at Fanatics that Wackys are still going strong, buy an extra set or two this month,
get those sales totals up from last month!

I'll repeat an earlier comment, which is that the set for a holiday should not be the month of the holiday, but rather the month before.  For example, the Valentine's Day themed Wackies should have been done in the January set, since we would receive them in February, closer to Valentine's Day.  Otherwise the holiday-themed Wackies are always one month stale and out of date, a month after the holiday has passed and is long out of mind.

But years from now - even next year - it will make sense.

I'm so excited to see a Master Lock parody! They are made here in my hometown of Milwaukee and they are a client of mine. I'll share the link with them. Maybe that will get a few more sales?

I am guessing #11 - Dear Heart - spoofs Deer Park sparkling water. (Wacky Packages ANS3 had a Deer Park Water spoof called "Deer Parts").

Yup! You guessed right! When looking for a Valentines tie in, the Deer/Dear angle was irresistible!

I'm glad you liked the gag! I've actually done a second master lock parody that is still floating around waiting to be picked up. I was trying to find something that would connect with school kids like the classic composition notebook Wacky did when I was young.

Can we make suggestions for future Wonky Packages entries in the monthly Wacky Packages series? If so: I thought of one: "Rabbot Burns" using the "Robot Burns" original 12th. sticker series Wacky Packages entry with the robot replaced by Bunnie Rabbot from the Sonic Sat AM cartoon series and 1993-2016 Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic books.

Good suggestions! As for recommending Wonkys, feel free to send me a PM if you think you have a great idea! No promises, but as long as there's wonkys, I'm always willing to listen!

Maybe Topps should sell their sets according to when it gets delivered rather than when it gets sold.  Then the February set would have gone on sale in January and been ndelivered by February, 2023.

I couldn't figure out Darn Old bread in the February set, as it uses the banner logo of Oroweat bread, but the gag name doesn't line up.

So I asked Zen what was his inspiration for the parody concept - and it's Arnold bread.
I've never heard of that brand, so I had to dig deeper, and now I know why.

Turns out this bread goes by three different names across the country.
Arnold in the East, Oroweat in the West, and Brownberry in the midwest.
Hope that helps anyone else that may be confused by this one like I was.

My point exactly.  The Valentine's Day themed Wackies should be delivered around Valentines Day, not around St. Patrick's Day or Lent.

491 That is going to make these even harder to find in the future for trading.

That's just like Hellmann's Mayonnaise east of the Rockies and Best Foods Mayonnaise west of the Rockies.

I can only speak for myself. For most of 2021, I was purchasing 6 packs. I increased to 10 packs for the last few months of the year because of they way the playing cards were be distributed and I was putting  4 sets of them together.  Once 2022 started, I went back down to 6 packs.

I have been doing 10 packs since October of 2021, before that it was only 3 packs and was trading and buying the rest.  Since I noticed the drop in volume I kept it at 10 packs so I can make my set.  I still want to trade, as that is really a lot of the fun, but I really do not want to buy them off of ebay as I feel the prices are just a tad high there.

All I meant was that I ordered a few more February sets than I did January sets.  Still, the overall number went down.
