Gorilla Gamer Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon– Apr 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Gorilla Gamer Crate is a subscription box for gamers! Their website calls it a “monthly, mystery, console specific crate focused 100% on video gamers.” My sons are complete video game addicts, so they were thrilled to hear about this box!

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


The Subscription Box: Gorilla Gamer Crate

The Cost: $39.99 + $7.95 shipping = $47.94 / month with discounts for longer commitments

COUPON: Save 5% off your first box with code MSA5

The Products: A surprise assortment of video gamer gear, t-shirts, console accessories and related goodies

Good to Know: GGC also has a smaller subscription box called “GGC Lite” that costs $19.99 per month. Shipping costs are the same.

Also Good to Know: When you sign up, you select PS4 or XBox One as your console. Those appear to be the only options at the moment. We chose PS4.

We’ve received the same welcome card three months in a row now, so I guess they send it every month. I hope they upgrade to cards with information about the items in each shipment soon! Those are so helpful.


Gorilla Gamer Custom Tee – Value $10?

This is the t-shirt that was included this month. My ten-year-old will wear it, but I wish I had ordered this one in my size. I have to sheepishly admit that I think I’ve owned almost all of those consoles over the years!


Protective Skin for PS4 – Value $19.99

My ten-year-old was thrilled to see this! He already has a Darth Vader cover on his PS4, but he is excited to change up the look of his console in the near future.


Game Over Mug – Value $10?

I couldn’t find this exact mug for sale online, so I’m guessing at the value. My kids won’t get much use out of this, yet, but it’s still very cute!

Bee Mario from Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Value $10.99

My eight-year-old flipped over this little guy! He plays Super Smash Bros on the WiiU all the time, and Super Mario Galaxy 2 is high on his wish list.


Super Mario Bros. 8-bit Battle Snap Back Cap – Value $23.59

As you can imagine, this was also an instant hit with my little one! And I love it because it’s too big for his tiny head!


Nintendo Controller Crew Socks – Value $11.99

These socks are cute, but they’re too big for the kiddos, and my husband won’t wear them, so these are a bit of a miss for us. I would wear them, but they’re a 98% polyester 2% spandex blend. Is that odd for socks? My feet need to breathe.


Assorted Snacks – Value about $4

I can’t decide if I prefer the slightly healthier snacks Gorilla Gamer has sent in previous months for the kids or not. This month is the first time they’ve sent blatant junk food, but maybe if they’re going to eat sugar it’s better that way? At least we all know what the kids are getting. Plus Pop Rocks are so fun!

Verdict: This was a super fun box for us from Gorilla Gamer Crate! My kids are all about the gaming swag! I’m not sure what we will do with the socks yet, but everything else is a hit! Plus the value of everything adds up to about $80, which is awesome for a $48 box!

  1. It feels a little odd to me that a Nintendo Console is not one of the “options” (I guess for the console sticker thing?) yet this is almost entirely Nintendo themed object-wise.

  2. My husband signed up for the lite one and the products don’t even add up to that amount. It was such a rip off, I was sad for him.

    • Oh no! I hate to hear that Tabby. I’m going to take a look at the lite box soon…
