This month’s theme is “SPEED”.


This is the information card that was included in the package, detailing its contents. On the right is the monthly theme pin. Please note that since many of the items in 1Up Box are custom / exclusive, lots of these values are guesses.


“PokeRun” Exclusive T-shirt – Value $15?

Like all Americans, my kids are totally into Pokemon Go! right now, so they were thrilled to receive this tee. It’s Pikachu dressed like The Flash for some reason, presumably playing Pokemon Go!, and being chased by Arcanine. It’s pretty clever, actually. I like it!



Winged Necklace – Value $12?

I am pretty sure that although it’s silver, this is supposed to be the golden snitch from Harry Potter. Cute! My niece is way into Harry Potter, so I think I will pass this along to her.


Hedgehog Patch – Value $3?

Super Speed Mini Lanyard – Value $1?

Here are two characters known primarily for their speed! My kids love the Sonic patch, and all things Sonic, really. I’m so pleased this is an iron-on patch, too! I just wore out my hands completely sewing the kids’ scout patches onto their uniforms. The mini lanyard features The Flash, which is awesome. I’m just not sure of the purpose of a mini lanyard?



Yoshi Plush – Value – $12.99

My eight-year-old is obsessed with Yoshi! He was really happy to get this pink plush version.

Verdict: We think 1Up Box is awesome! Everything they sent this month was a hit! The boys really liked the t-shirt especially, and any time Yoshi shows up in our house, it’s a great day for my younger son. The value this month adds up to about $44, which is great for a $20 box.

What do you think of 1Up Box?

  1. I found that sonic patch on etsy and its actually $12. O.O

  2. I love Yoshi too and that one is so cute. I like the mini lanyard. I would probably put it on my keys or my wallet so I could put them on my wrist to keep track of them better. Im the worst at setting them down and forgetting.
