Nerd Block Jr. Girls Subscription Box Review – January 2015 Box

Nerd Block recently introduced two new subscription boxes: Nerd Block Junior for Girls and Nerd Block Junior for Boys. This is one of the few toy subscription boxes, and I think it’s a great subscription. Plus they ship worldwide with reasonable shipping costs!

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Olaf Beanie Baby – Value $9

Despicable Me 2 Minion Finger Puppet – Value $4.50

These are both adorable! The Olaf Beanie Baby has a flat bottom so it can sit up on its own, and the white fabric has a subtle sparkle weave throughout – it is very well made!

The minion finger puppet comes with two pieces of gum, and it stands on its own as well, so it can double as a figurine when not being used as a puppet!

Hello Kitty First Aid Kit – Value $3

Shopkins Seasons 2 Blind Bag – Value $3

This Hello Kitty first aid kit includes 2 antiseptic wipes, 2 gauze pads, 4 large bandages and 4 small bandages. It’s going straight to my cousin who loves everything Hello Kitty!

I’ve never heard of Shopkins before, but they make the cutest can of beans I’ve ever seen!

Harry Potter Figures (2) – Value $5 total?

These are going on my desk – I love all things Harry Potter!

Verdict: I think this was a good month for the Girls Nerd Block Junior box. For starters, I think putting a Frozen item in the box is almost always a good idea. This box has a value of about $25, which is more than the cost shipped to the US, and worth it if you like the items included (the value of geek boxes in general depend a lot on if the items included that month match your interests).

What do you think of the January Nerd Block Junior Girls box?

  1. I cancelled after this month because of the value. If I cant get the kind of quality I do for $10 from places like BB and Ipsy, I think these types of boxes can provide similar value (either set a lower price point for what you’re doing or step up what you’re doing and keep your price). I was using the boxes for toys she earns for chores etc. She was so happy to see something Hello Kitty but then it was just bandaids.

  2. My youngest is 10, so this actually is a good box for her age-wise. But the value is just not there. She loves frozen, but after years in the Hello Kitty bandwagon, she hates her. The other stuff would have been blah.

    We’re trying HorrorBlock and PoshPak now. If neither work, it’s going to be “Mommy Box”.

  3. I think it’s too low value. Chances that a kid would like everything included are low.

    But boxes aimed at kids seem to be such bad values altogether. I think I’ll just give up on looking for one for my kids – out of guilt from getting so many myself – and just buy them what I know they actually want.

    • Nana – That’s what I did for my 6 year old. I used to buy him Nerd Block Jr Boys because his older brother was receiving geek boxes. A lot of it seemed junky/filler so I stopped. It sounds like my younger son might be younger than your youngest, but he does enjoy Kiwi Crate.
