Naomi Kyle Quarterly Subscription Box Review #NKQ01
Naomi Kyle is one of the latest curators for Quarterly, and since her box has a gamer focus, my husband was excited for this subscription!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items and why they were selected for the box.
Naomi Kyle Signed Photo – Value ?
Annotated Copy of Ready Player One (Regular paperback retails for $8.68 on Amazon)
I’m not sure how to put a value on either of these items – I think if you are a Naomi Kyle fan they will definitely add to the value of the box. I really enjoyed my annotated copy of Thrive from Arianna Huffington, and I think it’s a great way for curators to add value to a book.
(If you aren’t familiar with annotated books from Quarterly curators, throughout this book are copies of handwritten post-its from Naomi).
Dead Rising Digital Game Code for XBOX One – Value $33
Mimobot Star Wars Wampa 8G Flash Drive – Value $15
I think it’s pretty awesome that Naomi included one of her favorite video games in this box. Of course, it would not be awesome at all if you don’t have an XBOX One, and considering this is the highest value in the box, I wish Quarterly would have done a spoiler hint to let potential subscribers know there would be an XBOX One game in the box.
This Mimobot is fun – I think we own a few of their cute designs.
Matt Needle Destiny Hunter Print – Value $20
From Naomi about this print:
This Matt Needle print is my favorite. I pay Warlock, however, I chose Hunter to represent something deeper – the hunt for success. I’m a strong believer in working hard to reach your goals and shooting for the stars, or in this case the moon. Its modern simplistic art style absolutely fits my tastes when it comes to video game art and I hope you find a cool spot for it in your home. I framed mine and have it hung up in my living room.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $77. I think that’s pretty great for a $50 Quarterly box, and the value could be higher to you depending on the value you place on the signed photo and the annotated book. That being said, I imagine this box is great for some and a miss for others – especially if you don’t have an XBOX One.
