The Rad & Hungry set has a really great aesthetic, packaging wise. It's all kraft and plain paper paired with pops of florescent orange. I was undone by the cleverness of the bag closure. Two holes, a paper clip and a rubber band = GENIUS.
My Rad Bag contained a notebook from Spain, wood push pins from the US, a "European Version" Bic Pen from France, an eraser from Brazil, a pencil from Columbia, and a pencil cap from Japan.
I have long derided the Rad & Hungry sets to myself. Every one seemed to me to be another slim folio notebook, another ho-hum pen. BUT, while that's essentially what I got in my "Rad Bag", the little note card about where things were from and the obvious care with which the supplies were selected really came through. It managed to make the ordinary really special. My favorite was the business card with the various paper clips on it which isn't even a part of the "Rad Bag"; it's the Rad & Hungry business card. Again, GENIUS.
At a $20.00 price tag, with shipping, it was a little more expensive than I'd like, but I didn't feel cheated. It was a fun time.
