Nerd Block Jr. sends a list a card showing you what came in the box and usually, there is a little game on the back.

Amy Rose Baseball Cap – Value $10.00?

We don’t play Hedgehog and there seems to be a lot of Hedgehog stuff in this box but this month we’re okay with it since Cira really likes this baseball cap. It’s cute!

I found a similar cap on Amazon but it is black.

Frozen Glow Tattoos – Value $2.99

Even though we’re not big Disney fans in this house anymore, I’m usually okay with getting Disney products since they make great gifts. Some little girl is going to love these glow tattoos!

National Geographic Kids Magazine – Value $4.99 (single issue)

My daughter loves getting this magazine in her box each month. This month we liked the Scaly Superhero information. I explained that the people that write books often take inspiration from real life and it’s easy to see that here.

Disney Infinity Figure – Fear from Inside Out – Value $14.99

We don’t have Infinity game so this is a real bummer for us. This is a pretty specific toy for Nerd Block Jr. to send out – higher value and distinct market. I certainly hope we don’t see more toys like this in the future.

Sailor Cats ShirtPunch! T-shirt – Value $15.00?

We’ve never watched Sailor Cats but Cira didn’t care because this shirt is really cute. We still take issue with the unisex sizing but most of the t-shirts we received Cira likes and will wear for bed or to play outside.

Dorbz Groot Vinyl Figure – Value $9.38

Groot is clearly the cutest character from Guardians of the Galaxy but this is a PG-13 movie so I’m not thrilled about the inclusion of this item. My daughter hasn’t seen this movie and this box is supposed to be geared toward ages 6-11. I think this is another bad choice for this month. 

Verdict: My daughter really looks forward to getting Nerd Block Junior for Girls but I’m not thrilled about this month. My daughter loves getting new toys but typically there is at least one item that either is defective or completely not usable for us. Although we like the t-shirt, I wish nerdBLOCK (and ShirtPunch) would separate the sizing by gender so it would fit better.

This 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. I’m usually on the fence about this box despite that my daughter enjoys it. The value is not good if you only use/like a couple items each month. The total value of the items on in this box is typically pretty high. The April Nerd Block Junior for Girls included about $54.35 worth of toys for a $30.00 box (includes shipping cost).

  1. In regards to the Disney Infinity figure, Disney shut down the studio that created the Infinity games last summer. Most places like Walmart have the figures on clearance for $4.50 and you can pick up the newest version of the game (3.0) with the starter pack for around $20 if you can find it.

    • Thanks for the info Jon!

  2. Didn’t this box used to be around $14 with a $6 shipping fee?

    • Hi Cyn. Yes, the box was cheaper before but they added the tshirt a while ago and raised the price when they did that.

  3. The shirt is from Sailor Moon, not Sailor Cats. 🙂 I watched it when I was around your daughter’s age and I loved it, she might enjoy it! It’s on Hulu nowadays.

    • The info card says Sailor Cats.

      • Ah, gotcha. The cats are definitely from Sailor Moon, so maybe they’re just referring to them as the Sailor Cats? Not sure why though.

      • That’s probably because it’s the cats from Sailor Moon. Sort of like a mash up shirt. It’s Luna and Artemis and kid they had a baby their kitten. The sound of my voice in my head as I typed that out was cavity inducing sweet, because… Cuteness!!!

        I think they might have sent out that Infinity you because like the amiibos (and Skylanders maybe too) people will collect them (like Pops, Dorbz, etc) and not just use them for the game.

        • Thanks for adding your perspective Loba. That makes sense.

    • Thanks jackie! We’ll check it out on Hulu. The graphics are really cute.

  4. Thank you for this refreshingly honest review. These are exactly the same comments I had about the Boy’s version.

    • Thanks AAC.
