Opening this box is like stepping out of a time machine back to my childhood – I love it! This month featured more goodies from a bunch of Nicktoons and one very Halloween appropriate live-action show!

It comes wit ha notecard that details the items in your box.

Are You Afraid of the Dark Shirt – Value $15?

The Nick Box has sent some great shirts in the past – but this is easily the best, yet. It’s a classic print that will catch every fans’ eye!

If it does, hit the lights and the glow-in-the-dark print is sure to catch their eye! This might be the most appropriate shirt to glow-in-the-dark.

The back neck has a brand logo – just in case someone doesn’t know what the Midnight Society is, if that person exists.

Official Member of The Midnight Society Pin – Value $10?

My first thought – how fun is this packaging?!

Everyone who grew up in the 90’s remembers being afraid of at least a couple of these episodes!

This is a 1.75 inch enamel pin and is about as close as you can get to become an actual member.

CatDog Vinyl Figure – Value $15?

They continue their vinyl figure by featuring CatDog this quarter!

This partying CatDog figure is about 4.5 inches tall from base to Dog’s hand. This one is going on display immediately!

It arrives in two pieces – just pop them onto the base and you’re good to go.

Krumm Candy Dish – Value $20?

I never knew I needed a Krumm candy dish until I opened this box.

Krumm is about 5.5 inches tall of hand painted porcelain.

Pop some candies into his mouth – and while the mouth opening is a bit small, I was thinking that might be a good thing for me trying to eat candy! Any other ideas of what you could store in here?

AAAHH!!! Real Monsters Travel Organizer – Value $20+?

As I progressed through this box, the next item was always my ‘favorite’ of the box – it just kept getting better and better. This is probably my favorite item of the entire box – it’s such a great design and super useable.

Instead of using this to learn a scare – you can unzip it and take some stuff on-the-go.

It’s large – 11×8.5 inches to be exact – and has a bunch of inner pockets for storing items that you might need while you’re out and about.

It even has this velcro flap where you could store a kindle or smaller iPad.

I just thought the overall look of this was done perfectly in line with the artwork of the show!

Reptar Bar Plush – Value $15-20?

Like most items from The Nick Box, it all starts with awesome packaging!

Pop it open to find your own plush Reptar bar!

Reptar is about 6.5 inches tall and does include hte green stuff!

This is a the perfect inclusion for a ‘Treasure and Treats’ theme – and it might get you ready for the real Reptar Bars that are coming soon!

Rocko’s Modern Life Die-Cut Desk Clock – Value $15

My search for a desk clock is now over – this is easily the coolest one available!

Overall, it’s a simple die-cut clock that stands about 5 inches tall.

But, as a Rocko fan, I couldn’t ask for a better design from the show – it definitely has a spot on my desk!

Totally 90’s Plate Set – Value $25-30?

To keep the nostalgia rolling, they’ve included a few more franchises in plate form!

Each plate is 8.5 inches with rounded corners – they feature Ren & Stimpy, The Angry Beavers, RugRats, and Hey Arnold!

As you can see – they are hand wash only and are not microwave safe. That’s always a big miss for me – but with designs like these, I’ll happily handwash.

AAAHH!!! Real Monsters Air Freshener – Value $2-3?

The final item in the box is another ode to one of my favorite shows – and how appropriate – it’s an air freshener!

Verdict: If you were, or still are, into Nicktoons and all things 90’s Nick – this is the only box for you! I look forward to unboxing even season – and they have yet to disappoint. Once again, it’s a great mix of 90’s franchises with a good mix of toys/figures and usable items – it’s a home run for me!

  1. OMG! SO. CUTE. I would prefer more Rugrats, CatDog, Hey Arnold merch opposed to A.R.M.

    • I agree 110%!!

  2. I had to buy the pin on ebay because it’s pretty amazing. This is a great box, I’m consistently impressed by the curation.

  3. That Midnight Society shirt is one of the greatest things ever! I though it was awesome when I first saw it, but its even cooler that it glows in the dark!

  4. I can’t believe how utterly awesome the curation of this box is. It has all of my favorite Nick fandoms in it.

    • This was DEFINITELY a great one!

  5. Towards the top, it says it’s the Spring 2017 box. Or at least, that’s how I interpreted it.

    • my mistake – sometimes I miss stuff when moving the information blocks of text. Fixed!

    • If there is something specific you want let me know. I have the box and I am not a big fan of A.R.M.

      • I’m interested in the Krumm dish! ARM was my fav with Rocko.

    • What do you want from the box?! There are a few things I could part with from it.

  7. Ahh Real Monsters and Rocko’s Modern Life scared me as a kid but I’m gonna try to swap for that Are You Afraid of the Dark shirt and Rugrats stuff! Thanks for the review 🙂
