Culturefly Walmart-Exclusive Nintendo Console Box Review!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Culturefly has release two new collectible boxes for the Holiday season! These collectible boxes are available in-store exclusively at Walmart. You may remember Culturefly from their other popular boxes like Pusheen Box, The Nick Box, DC World’s Finest, and Shopkins Direct – needless to say, I was excited to dig in!

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

It should be no surprise, since it’s Culturefly, that this box is cool by itself!

The Box: Walmart-Exclusive Nintendo Console Box

The Cost: $29.99

The Products: A $70+ value of Nintendo console collectibles and goods – plus one mystery item!

Good To Know: These are available in-store at Walmart! This is not a subscription, but a one-off mystery box.

The Nintendo console box includes 7 items – one being a mystery item – including items from Gameboy, the original NES, and Super NES!

Nintendo Controller Pin – Value $5?

Every item is listed on the front of the packaging – all but one mystery item – and this is it! It’s about a 2-inch enamel pin.

Console Backpack – Value $20-25?

This is a mini little backpack, only measuring about 9×10 inches – probably about the size of the Super NES itself!

Being on the small side, it does make it really easy to pack away and keep around just in case!

Plus, this might be the PERFECT little backpack for toting around your gaming goodies – lad this up with your Switch, NES Classic, or Nintendo handheld consoles and go!

The details are all there from one of the greatest-ever consoles, too!

Plush Toy Controller – Value $10?

This is a 5×2.25 plush NES controller. I honestly wish the actual controllers were this thick nowadays – trying to play these with the NES Classic system gave me a little reminder that I’m getting older and my hands cramp up when using these original controllers.

Our dog was very interested in this item, as well – so maybe it’s something you can share with your pup!

Gameboy Heat Change Mug – Value $15?

One of my favorite items in the box is this Gameboy mug.

It’s a 12-ounce mug with the CLASSIC handheld system front and center.

But no one likes a powered down Gameboy, so and your favorite heated beverage and…

It’s that classic Gameboy green screen!

Cartridge Coasters – Value $10-15?

After you’re done admiring your new heat change mug, you’re going to need a place to put it down – why not on some coasters fashioned after some of the best NES games!

First – I love that all 4 come in a classic cartridge sleeve, it was a great touch! Everyone will get the same 4 coasters – Super Mario Bros. 3, Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros. and Metroid.

They’re made with a nice thick cork – they seem pretty durable for a bunch of use. So much nostalgia.

Gameboy Mini Notebook – Value $10?

This notebook is about 6×4 and makes me want to just hold an old Gameboy.

Inside is actually graph paper. If this were the 90’s, I’d be using this instead of the instruction manuals to write down cheat codes and level passwords – how far we’ve come!

Collectible Coin – Value $5?

The final item in the box is a collectible coin that commemorates the first-ever Nintendo Console Box.

Hopefully, this just means we’ll see more and more in the future!

Verdict: I was ballparking the values of these items as I went, and I cam to around $80 on the high-end of my value scales – so I think the $70 value is about dead-on. My favorite items in the box were the mug and coasters – I thought those had a really great nostalgic vibe along with a general usefulness in my everyday life. I also liked the design of the backpack – it’ll be useful for gamers on the go, for sure. At $30 – this feels like a cool gift box for the holidays, but I hope to see some cooler hero items in possible future boxes.

What do you think of the Nintendo Console Box? Are you grabbing one at Walmart?

  1. I wish they were selling these online

    • Me too!!!

  2. Can you buy this online anywhere?

  3. Are these in all stores? Where in the store can they be found?

    • They are in the center aisle at Electronics in my store, Navarre, FL

  4. Love everything in this box – especially the mug! What a cool idea having the lit up screen when it’s filled 😉 Thanks for writing this review, Eric!

  5. I had a Tetris heat change mug once. Don’t put this mug in the dishwasher or the graphic will peel off.

    I still have the original items most of these were modeled on (that is, 20+ year old Nintendo controller, SNES console, Super Mario and Super Mario 3 Nintendo cartridges, etc.). It is funny how this stuff comes back around into popularity.
