The Little Mermaid Decal – Value $3.99
My daughter is 7 now and grew out of Disney Princess stuff in the last year (so sad!). This is cute but we will pass it on to a little girl that will love it.
Live.love.music. Emoji Headphones – Value $12.99
Just like many other kids, my daughter is loving the emoji stuff right now. The shirt and these headphones made this month’s box for us! The quality of the headphones isn’t great (and neither is the sound) but for the price that is okay.
National Geographic Kids Magazine – $4.99 (single issue)
This magazine is looking like a regular edition for Nerd Block Jr. If so, we’re very happy about that! We’ve been watching Cosmos (it’s great!) on Netflix lately so when Cira saw the article on Planet 9 she ripped it out of the magazine right away and hung it on her wall. I’m so happy to have a nerdy kid.
Pokemon Socks – Value $2.99
We never got into the Pokemon craze but Cira has a crush on someone who did so we’ll give these socks to him and we’ll have two happy kids. ☺ The size seems a bit big for little kids but these socks usually fit many sizes pretty well so I’m not sure if that will be a problem for others.
Emoji ShirtPunch! T-shirt – Value $15.00?
Another Emoji hit in da house! We now have more Emoji items then I can count but we can never have enough poop emoji items. I can never find these shirts on the ShirtPunch website so the $15.00 is an estimate.
Inkworks Shopkins Gel Pens (5 pack) – Value $4.99
We love gel pens and art supplies are always a hit here…if they work. Only 2 of the pens in this packet worked well enough to keep. Bummer.
Disney Princess Frozen Tin with Necklace – Value $3.99?
Another Disney Princess items – wah-wah. Great for some kids but not for us. We’ll stock it away for a gift. I couldn’t find this online so the price is a guess.
Verdict: My daughter really looks forward to getting Nerd Block Junior for Girls each month but I’m kind of on the fence about it recently. The toy brands are ones my daughter enjoys but at least every few months there is something that doesn’t work well or doesn’t work at all. Plus, we like the t-shirt but wish nerdBLOCK (and ShirtPunch) would separate the sizing by gender so it would fit better. The box with shipping is about $30.00 now which seems high for a t-shirt and a couple toys my daughter likes each month but there is also at least one gift item for current or future use. It’s kind of a toss-up for me but I’m sure most kids would love getting a box of toys each month.
The total value of the items on in this box is typically pretty high. This month we received nearly $49.00 worth of toys for a $30.00 box which is good if you like everything but when there are some misses and something doesn’t work, the value goes down considerably.
