Nerd Block Junior Girls Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Sonic

Sonic The Hedgehog Bouncy Ball – Value $11

Monster Factory Plush in Kyle – Value $12

These items were both in the boys Nerd Block Junior as well. (There seem to be at least one or two crossover items each month). The Mad Libs are the other cross over item:

Nerd Block Junior Girls Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Frozen

Adventure Time Mad Libs – Value $4

Frozen Reusable Sandwich + Snack Bag – Value $5?

I feel like Nerd Block can’t go wrong including a Frozen item in the box – even if it is just a snack bag! (This one has a thermal liner too).

Nerd Block Junior Girls Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Hello Kitty

 

Hello Kitty Monsters Collection – Value $7

My cousin loves Hello Kitty, so this is going straight to her!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $39 – pretty high for a Nerd Block Junior Box! I’ve noticed Nerd Block Junior consistently sends out Hello Kitty and Frozen items at least once every month or two, so if you’re a fan of either of those I think you’ll enjoy this subscription!

What do you think of the Nerd Block Junior Girls subscription?

  1. The only miss in this box for the girl I shop for (my bff’s daughter) would be the Hello Kitty item. She was into Helli Kitty for like three months, then not, and she’s at the younger end of the age range for this box. I’d guess it’d be the same for older girls too? Feel free to contradict me :).

  2. I subscribe to nerdblock jr for boys and I really think it’s better for them. Three out of the five items were in the boys box and my son was in to all of his items. I just think they miss the mark for the girls.

  3. I wouldn’t subscribe to a box like this. My girls, at least, are pretty particular about what they like at any period of time. My youngest, for example, was totally into Hello Kitty a few years ago, but now she can’t stand her. She might like some of the other items, but not all. None of the items are adequate as birthday gifts for other kids. So at the end of the day, the value is just not there for me. I’d be better off spending $20 on something that I know my daughter would like.

    But I think this is a common issue for subscription boxes for kids/tweens.

    • I completely agree with this. Kids are pretty fickle about their interests, but very passionate about the things that they are into at the moment. I also think that money is better spent in just purchasing customized items for kids/tweens/teens. Sure, they may enjoy some of the items (and that’s a risk that we ALL take with any sub box), but they are more likely to be hit or miss than adults. For example, I may get a brand in a sub box that isn’t my favorite, but I will definitely give it a try! But a kid can’t be expected to be thrilled with a toy that they may have outgrown. When you aren’t sure what you’re getting, it doesn’t seem like money well spent. My daughter loves Frozen, but I don’t think that is even her FAVORITE thing right now. For $19.99 (the cost of the box plus shipping), I could have gotten her more Frozen items than a sandwich bag. Sure, it’s a cool item, but I just bought her a Zac Snowglobe-type Olaf cup for like $3.99. I don’t mean this to be negative, or to put down this box or sub. I just mean that, as a parent, I could see where this box may not be a good fit for some kids. For some it may be perfect! In all honesty, the boxes that aren’t catered to kids have been a bigger hit with mine. They prefer items that they’ve gotten from Marvel Collector Corps, Original Nerd Block, Arcade Block, Loot Crate, 1up Box, etc. But that may just be my little nerds.
