Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - box

Awesome Pack is a newish subscription box that’s all about family fun time! They send board games, toys, and activities to encourage quality time together. I love the concept!

They offer a Family Pack if you need items that would work for young and older kids, or a Big Kid Pack for older kids and adults. (This review is of the Family Pack).

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - letter

When I signed my family up for this subscription, Awesome Pack sent me a pretty extensive quiz about what games my family likes (and what we already have to avoid duplicates). It also asked about the ages of the children and other general interest questions. It’s pretty highly customized! I like that!

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - extras

As always, they included a fun family activity booklet. In addition, they always send a little piece of Awesome Pack merch, such as a pen or magnet. This month it’s a poster.

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - gloobz

Gloobz – Value $23.10

Our main game this month is Gloobz, a catch-the monsters-game. Fun! I can’t wait to try it out. Thanks to Awesome Pack, we are starting up a bit of a family game night!

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - hands-up

Hands up! – Value $7.99

This month we received a second game that’s a lightning fast-paced race to stop a diamond heist!

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - spheres

Amazing Spheres – Value $4.51

These are tiny beads that you soak in water for 24-36 hours and they grow into jelly marbles. We have used these before in several other science / activity subscription boxes. They’re pretty cool! But we added this to our Toys for Tots box for the year.

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - magic

Magic in a Minute – Value $1.25 each

My kids love magic tricks, and these are supposed to be pretty cool. They were even mentioned in the boys’ scouting magazine! These are blind bags, but they haven’t been opened yet. These are going into the stockings!

Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review December 2015 - transformers

Transformers Series 2 Blind Bags – Value $3.30 each

Another fun stocking item. Of course, they love Transformers! They’re little boys!

The Verdict: This was another great box from Awesome Pack! We are enjoying this subscription a lot; it’s loads of fun. The value this month was pretty low for Awesome Pack, though – it seems to have just about broken even with the cost of the box. The value usually exceeds the cost by quite a bit. Hopefully this is just a one-time fluke.

What do you think of Awesome Pack?

  1. This was our first Awesome Box and it was… AWESOME! We got the Gloobz game and love it. It basic but fun. Our other items were different except the spheres. I’m not sure what we will do with those. And they totally got the message that while my 5 year old likes girly stuff, it doesn’t stop her from loving “boy” things also. Disney Princess and Star Wars were both represented.
