Check out all of my Nerd Block Junior for Girls reviews!
Bravest Warriors Impossibear Plush – Value $11
Sick Bricks – Value $5.50
Nerd Block Junior seems to include plushes in almost every box – and they are usually pretty cute too! This Side Bricks toy is “scan to play” – you take pictures of the toys with your phone and then can use them in the Sick Bricks app game.
Hello Kitty Stickers – Value $4?
The Quest for the Diamond Sword by Winter Morgan – Value $6.41
My cousin loves everything Hello Kitty – so these stickers are going straight to her!
I’m not familiar with Minecraft, but this book gets excellent reviews on Amazon. Here is the book summary:
Steve lives on a wheat farm. He has everything he needs to live in the Minecraft world: a bed, a house, and food. Steve likes to spend his mornings in the NCP village and trade his wheat for emeralds, armor, books, swords, and food. One morning, he finds that Zombies have attacked the villagers. The Zombies have also turned the village blacksmith into a Zombie, leaving Steve without a place to get swords. To protect himself and the few villagers that remain, Steve goes on a quest to mine for forty diamonds, which are the most powerful mineral in the Overworld. He wants to craft these diamonds into a diamond sword to shield him and the villagers from the Zombies.
Far from his home, with night about to set in, Steve fears for his life. Nighttime is when users are most vulnerable in Minecraft. As he looks for shelter in a temple, he meets a trio of treasure hunters, Max, Lucy, and Henry, who are trying to unearth the treasure under the temple. Steve tells them of his master plan to mine for the most powerful mineral in the Overworld—the diamond. The treasure hunters are eager to join him. Facing treacherous mining conditions, a thunderstorm, and attacks from hostile mobs, these four friends question if it’s better to be a single player than a multiplayer, as they try to watch out for each other and chase Steve’s dream at the same time.
Will Steve find the diamonds? Will his friends help or hinder the search? Should he trust his new treasure hunter friends? And will Steve get back in time to save the villagers?
Frozen On-The-Go Bottle – Value $5?
I couldn’t find this online, so I’m guessing on the price. (I’m always impressed that these types of bottles are BPA free and dishwasher safe!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $32. I think that’s pretty good for a $20 box, and that value seems relatively consistent month to month. Nerd Block Junior also regularly includes Frozen and/or Hello Kitty – something to keep in mind if you are considering subscribing.
