Wow! For the first time ever, Nerd Block Jr. has included an info card, detailing the package contents! I like it!
They also included a coupon for Shirt Punch that I don’t fully understand. I think we collect credits for ten months and then get a gift card for $100? Confusing, but I think it leads to free t-shirts somehow.
Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon Dorbz – Value $5.75
My eight-year-old was thrilled to get this little guy! He’s working on a Dorbz collection now, and he loves GoG!
Lego Ninjago: Ninja vs. Ninja – Value $3.99
I don’t know why, but my ten-year-old used to go nuts over these Scholastic Ninjago books, and now my eight-year-old is getting into them. I’m always happy for them to be reading, so I guess I’ll leave my opinion of Ninjago out of this…
Zootopia Stickers – Value $2.49
I don’t think my kids are really into Zootopia at all, but they are serious sticker addicts. They were happy to add these to their collection.
Sorry! Revenge Hasbro Card Game – Value $4.98
I tried to get the boys interested in this classic card game, but they didn’t really want to play. I’m sure they will sooner or later, though. This isn’t particularly nerdly, is it?
Skylanders Swap Forces Countdown Figure – Value $7.95
My eight-year-old is a big fan of Skylanders, and he was happy to have this little guy. That being said, I don’t like it when subscription boxes send things in kids’ boxes that are dependent upon already owning a specific game or technology. My kids have the Wii U new Skylander game, but this guy is apparently for a different game. I think the other game is PS4 or Xbox only, too. So, this is okay as a little action figure, but can’t be used by my kids in video gaming, which is a serious bummer.
Lately Nerd Block Jr. has been including these spoiler cards for the next month’s box. Looks like it will be another great one!
Verdict: My sons love Nerd Block Jr. for Boys! We are disappointed about the Skylanders character, though, of course. This month, the value of the items totals around $24, which is a little on the low side for Nerd Block Jr., but it’s still okay for a $20 box. I guess this box was a bit of a miss for us in general. Here’s hoping next month is better!
