Nerd Block Junior Boys Subscription Box Review – October 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!
Guardians of the Galaxy Nesting Dolls – Value $17
My seven-year-old is completely obsessed with nesting dolls (“matryoshka”), plus he loved Guardians of the Galaxy, so he was absolutely thrilled to get these! Unfortunately, that was several months ago… I guess these came in an adult Nerd Block or other geek box and I swapped for them! I guess I will put these up for swap. They are totally awesome, though. The kids especially love Baby Groot.
Superhero Sandwich Keeper – Value $3?
I couldn’t find this online, so I’m estimating the value. This will come in handy with the packed lunches.
Rubik’s Cube Stress Ball – Value $8.40
I thought this was an actual Rubik’s Cube when I opened the box, and I was so excited! It’s a stress ball, though. I can see myself or my husband using it from time to time, but I think this is an odd inclusion in a kids’ box.
Plush Ghostbusters Slimer – Value $15
My kids haven’t yet seen Ghostbusters, but I’m sure my they will love their Slimers when they do. I think I will save this little guy until then.
Pan Movie Cell Bookmark – Value $8
This is so cool! It’s a plastic bookmark with an authentic cell from the movie Pan at the top! Obviously we haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’m sure it will be a favorite with my kids. I don’t know if my kids are old enough to appreciate the significance of a film cell yet, though, so I may hang on to this myself for a while.
The Verdict: A couple of people commented on last month’s box review that Nerd Block Jr. is less nerdy and more just toys. We love Nerd Block Jr. in my house, but now that I think about it, I agree somewhat with those comments. I think this month’s box was an improvement, though. A collectible film cell is pretty advanced geekery! With the exception of the stress ball, this month’s box was great. Plus the value is around $51, which is fantastic for a $20 box!
