Nerd Block Junior Girls Subscription Box Review August 2015 - cap

Master Builder cap – Value $10?

OK, I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t know whether I’m going to give this cap to my niece or keep it for myself! I’m not a master builder, but it’s so cute! Do you think if I wear it someone will challenge me to some sort of Lego competition? Anyway, I couldn’t find this online, so I am guessing on the value.

Wild Kratts Cheetah Power Animal Set – Value $5.99

Cut the Rope 3-pack Nommies Micro Figures – Value $3.87

I hope my niece is into Wild Kratts because my sons don’t really know anything about them. On the other hand, my seven-year-old son is way, way into Cut the Rope, and I think he is going to love this little blind bag of micro figures!

Desktop Distractions Drum Up Some Ideas Stationery Set – Value $6.82

Shopkins Slap Band Bracelet – Value $4.99

I was SO happy to see the stationery set in this box! It also came in the boys’ box, so I can give one of each to my boys as a little back-to-school treat. No fighting over this! My eight-year-old niece loves slep jewelry of all kinds, so I’m sure this will be a hit!

The Verdict: Nerd Block Jr. for Girls is awesome! The value comes to right around $32, which is really good for a $20 price. Much of the box this month is gender-neutral, which I also like. I think most everything they include in this subscription would make a great gift for a little girl in this age range.

  1. This box, like most subscription boxes aimed at kids and tweens, seems like a failure to me. It’s basically random stuff that you could pick up in a for sale bin somewhere. None of it is particularly exciting, and the whole thing is not a good value. This is not to say she wouldn’t have liked the stuff, but $20 I could buy her something she would like much more.

    Personally, I’d rather pay the extra $10 and get an adult block box that has cooler stuff (we do Horror Block from time to time for my 10 yo girl) or do Loot Crate for the same price.

  2. Cute box, but if i was looking for a nerdy box for my six year old cousin, i would not be happy with this. None of these items are nerdy. She likes comic books, and minecraft, and videogames, id like a box with that focus, but age appropriate. This box is overshooting its age target, too. Wild kratts is a pbs show for small children, an 11 year old would not be into that most likely. I don’t even know what shopkins are, tbh.

  3. I’m with you Anna…I want to keep the cap from the boys Jr. Block as well! It’s so stinkin cute!

    • Totally! LOL

  4. If anybody is looking to sell the wild kratts item please let me know!
