Minions Mini Puzzle Tin – Value $4.99

We’re not huge fans of Minions so this will be gifted. The puzzle is really, really small.

Star Wars Jedi in Training Apron Value $17.99

My daughter, Cira loves Star Wars but wasn’t thrilled by this because it was Luke Skywalker on the front and not one of the female Star Wars characters.

National Geographic Kids Magazine – Value $4.99 for single issue

We loved this magazine! Cira and I read it together and she enjoyed it very much. In fact, I will be recommending a subscription to family as a gift idea.

DC Batman Crew Socks – Value $4.99

Wow, another item advertised for boys. I’m sure these are great but definitely not what my 6-year-old girls wants to wear.

Littlest Pet Shop (LPS) ShirtPunch! T-shirt – Value $15?

I couldn’t find this on the ShirtPunch! website but these shirts are readily available at most large stores. Of course, we are big fans of LPS in this house but I really wish the sizing was better on these t-shirts. Even the youth small is big for my daughter.

My Little Pony Plush Toy – Value $6.85

We’re big My Little Pony fans and Cira loves all stuffed animals so this was a nice item for us.

Disney Tsum Tsum Calendar – Value $7.99 (price on back of calendar)

This calendar is a cute addition that matches the Tsum Tsum lanyard we received last month.

Draw Your Own Comic Books & Crayons – Value $5.99?

This is probably my favorite item as it marries creativity, imagination, writing and drawing. Cira likes it too!

Verdict: My daughter really likes getting Nerd Block Jr. for Girls but this month was not our favorite. While I’m cool with cross-gender toys, it’s hard to choose one for someone else (in this case, I mean Nerd Block choosing for us) and thus, the perceived value of this box goes down if items aren’t usable. Normally, we are happy with this box and the brand of toys are almost always ones my daughter enjoys. While we love the inclusion of the t-shirt, I wish Nerd Block (and ShirtPunch) would separate the sizing by gender so it would fit better. The total value of the items on in this box is typically pretty high for this kind of box. This month we received $68.79 worth of toys for a $30.00 box.

  1. It says this box is $13.99 at the top but $30 at the bottom of the post. I was wondering which is correct? Thanks!

  2. We got the same box . My daughters weren’t happy with the socks or Star Wars apron for the same reasons. I felt the socks and apron in our box were a mistake until I your review. They liked the magazine and other things so it was still worth it , just not the best box from them .

    • Hi Lori!

      Thanks for reading the review. We’d love more books and magazines! Well, at least I think that’s a great idea. I’m guessing Cira would say more girl toys. 🙂
