Good To Know: This box doesn’t have themes or info cards.
G.I. Joe Shirt – Value $8.99 on Amazon
This month’s shirt features the classic G.I. Joe. My brother and I, like a lot of kids in the 80’s, loved G.I. Joe – so this is a nice throw back. I know he’ll absolutely love this shirt, so he’s getting it.
Adipose POP – Value $8.43 on Amazon
This month we get a POP as well! The POP features Adipose from Doctor Who. You really can’t go wrong including Doctor Who in a geek box, I think we’ve seen that demonstarted as a fact so many times this year!
ASOBU Stress Controller – Value $6
We also received this back in March from Arcade Block. I always have an assortment of stress balls at my desk, so it’ll go to use.
Family Guy Drinking Dice Game – $5.78 on Amazon
They include a Family Guy drinking dice game.
ASOMU Touch Control Joystick For Touchscreens – $8.17 on Amazon
I’ve thought about buying these before, but never have, so I was excited to try it. I downloaded a game on my iPad, but it really doesn’t work well at all. A major design flaw is that it’s a square, so it’s hard to use all 360 degrees of a thumbstick, plus it kept popping off.
Guinness World Records Build Your Own UFO Kit – Value $10.32 on Amazon
Here’s something I didn’t know eve existed. This kit includes everything you need to build the UFO and all of the Guinness rules and restrictions along with a bunch of different records you can try to beat.
Tetris Magnets – $7.84 on Amazon
While I love Tetris, I think I’ve received enough Tetris magnets for a lifetime at this point!
Verdict: I love getting a POP in a box, it usually means its a win for me, but this month didn’t do it for me. I love the shirt and the POP, but I’m not too interested in the the other items, and the thumbstick doesn’t work well at all! It feels random, and it is, so I shouldn’t be surprised at this point since I’ve reviewed quite a few of them.
