Nerd Block Junior Boys Subscription Box Review September 2015 - electrokidz

Elektrokidz – Value $5

This little guy was in both the NBJ Girls’ and Boys’ box this month, and all I can say is THANK GOODNESS. Otherwise, we might have had a fight on our hands! This little guys is adorable, and hooray for the comeback of troll dolls! Plus this one has hair that dances to the beat!

Nerd Block Junior Boys Subscription Box Review September 2015 - mike

Ty Beanie Ballz (Mike from Monster University) – Value $8.31

Mike was also in both boys’ and girls’ boxes this month, and he’s awesome! My younger son loves him! Unfortunately, my older son is not into plush any more, so we will probably give one of them to my niece.

Nerd Block Junior Boys Subscription Box Review September 2015 - book

The Squickerwonkers by Evangeline Lilly – Value $7?

This book was also in both boxes this month, so one copy will go to the book drive my sons’ cub scout troop will have soon. This is only listed on Amazon as either hardcover or audible, but the copy we received is paperback, so I’m guessing at the value. I wonder if they only released it in paperback in Canada (home of Nerd Block)? Anyway, it looks like a great book, plus it got 4.5 stars on Amazon, PLUS – and here’s the exciting part for me – it was written by Evangeline Lilly, who played Kate on one of my all-time favorite television series, Lost! How cool is that?

Nerd Block Junior Boys Subscription Box Review September 2015 - kreon-tats

Kreo Transformers Blind Bag – Value $5.69

I couldn’t find this exact blind bag online, so I used the value and link to a similar one on Amazon. These are like Lego Minifigures, and I’m sure the boys will love it.

Ultimate Spiderman Tattoos – Value $4.79

Whenever we get temporary tattoos in subscription boxes, I like to store them for our next party or family get-together. The kids just love them, and the novelty never seems to wear off! (Unfortunately, neither do the tattoos, which is why I save them until we’re somewhat clear of the school year.)

The Verdict: We love Nerd Block Jr.! They seem to really know what the kids are going to love. This box has a value of about $30, so that’s great for a $20 box! Smiles all around!

  1. I received an entirely different nerd block than this.

    We got Sully as the beanie toy, an adventure time jake pack, the book, the kreo, and some sort of bean car toy.

    We were really disappointed to not get the electrokidz “troll” toy. Nerdblock hasn’t even felt compelled to respond to my email.

  2. These boxes are cute, but they’re not nerd boxes. Like, take grown up nerd things (comic books, star wars, lotr, etc) and make them kid appropriate. Its not like these things dont exist; there are shirts, toys, posters, plenty of nerd items designed for kids! My cousin is 7, and loves her video games and her minecraft and her marvel, and this ‘nerd’ box would only be a disappointment. The products are always good, but i mean, no one is calling kids who like monsters inc nerds, y’know? Good box, bad branding.

    • This says it all. My son lasted three months with it, but was seriously disappointed every month. He called it “junk.” Too often, items are just irrelevant to current popular culture; Monsters Inc., for instance. The other problem is the given age range. Nerd Block Jrs. always seem primarily filled with items for kids closer to 6 than to 11. That book is too young for my son, and definitely not “boy” enough. Nerd Block also often seems to include phone charms, but my kids (and most that age) don’t have phones. He might like the blind bag, but that’s a dollar store item that’s not worth getting this whole box shipped from Canada.

  3. My son loved it, we got Batman tattoos though. Wish we had gotten Spider-Man ?
