Nerd Block Junior Boys Subscription Box Review – September 2015
Nerd Block is the parent company for the original Nerd Block box, plus Horror Block, Arcade Block, and Comic Block subscriptions full of treats for all various types of nerds and geeks. For the tiniest nerds and geeks, they also have Nerd Block Jr. in both a boys’ and girls’ variety!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Nerd Block Junior for Boys
The Cost: $13.99 plus shipping. ($6 shipping to the US)
The Products: Geeky gear for kids ages 6-11. (This subscription is only toys – no t-shirt like the regular Nerd Block subscription).
Ships to: Worldwide!
Good to Know: My boys are both enormous nerds. I consider it a point of pride!
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!
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.
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?
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!
