Meet BuzzSugar's Coraline Box

Meet BuzzSugar's Coraline Box


A little while ago I received in the mail this seemingly cute little colorful box from an unfamiliar sender. Turns out it contains two buttons which, should I decide to cross over into my "Other Mother"'s world, would have to replace my real eyes. Creepy! Included in the package is also a typed-up note from my "Other Mother," explaining that she's made this box by hand, just like she hand-made a whole world for Coraline, the lead character in the freaky stop-motion movie Coraline which opens next Friday. Anyone who's ever wished for a better life has an Other Mother who will provide a lovely, perfect life — as long as you promise to stay with her forever.

It's a pretty neat gimmick, I gotta say. The stop-motion movie includes all kinds of amazing, miniature handmade things and having seen the film it's truly a breathtaking experience to watch it — particularly in 3-D. It's also creepy and sometimes downright frightening, so receiving this real-life little box from my "Other Mother" is appropriately spooky.

Apparently 50 different handmade Coraline packages were sent out to a bunch of bloggers and you can see a whole rundown of different mysterious-looking Coraline boxes here. Below you can peruse the photos of my particular gift from my Other Mother. Are you creeped out? Because I am.

Yesterday, my roommate found a skeleton key sitting on our gate. She was all excited, thinking we had a fun mystery on our hands. I turned it over and it said Coraline.com on the other side, which disappointed my roommate and intrigued me....It's a kind of random, but intriguing way to market the movie!

Oh my word. That movie looks creepy and pretentious and subtly preachy. You can count me out.

I would freak if I got something like this in the mail! :-) But is a really interesting idea and very savvy marketing.

It's been such a long wait for the Coraline movie! Once again, Neil Gaiman is an effing genius!

That's pretty cool, and would definitely get me excited for the movie. I don't know that I'll see it in theaters though, since I'm not sure that any of my friends want to see it.

I think it's neat...I can't wait to see Coraline! My sister and I have a date to see it together next week!

I love when they sound out stuff like this. Super cute! I'm not sure if I'll go see it though. A regular movie after 6 is $9.50 and 3D is like $15/person sooo it probably won't happen.

When I look at the buttons, the spool and the needle "face," yes, indeed, I am creeped out! I'll keep the mother I have any day!
