Nerd Block is the parent company for the original Nerd Block box, plus Horror Block, Arcade Block, and Comic Block subscriptions full of treats for all various types of nerds and geeks. For the tiniest nerds and geeks, they also have Nerd Block Jr. in both a boys’ and girls’ variety!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Nerd Block Junior for Boys
The Cost: $13.99 plus shipping. ($6 shipping to the US)
The Products: Geeky gear for kids ages 6-11. (This subscription is only toys ñ no t-shirt like the regular Nerd Block subscription).
Ships to: Worldwide!
Good to Know: My boys are both enormous nerds. I consider it a point of pride!
Owl Magazine – Value $5.25
Stranded by Jeff Probst and Chris Tebbetts – Value $6.99
Both of these items were included in this month’s Nerd Block Jr. for girls as well, which is great news for me since I have two sons! Less fighting! OWL magazine is absolutely packed with activities and comics for kids about my sons’ ages up to about 13. I also had no idea that the host of Survivor wrote a NYT best seller that is appropriate for these little guys. So cool! I think both of these items will be great for our long flight to Grandpa & Grandma’s house in September.
Marvel Avengers Assemble Glow Tattoos – Value $3.99
My boys have been kind of “over” temporary tattoos since they were about 5 — UNTIL NOW! These glow in the dark! How cool is that?
Regarding the TIE fighter, when I first saw it, I thought it was kind of lame, but apparently I was wrong on a couple of different levels. First, the boys instantly ripped it out of my hands and started fighting over it. Second, I couldn’t find this for sale anywhere in the US. I think these must come from the UK? I could only find it on various European ebay sites, so the value is estimated based on those.
Skylander Spyro’s Adventure Ignitor Figure Pack – Value $10.19
Kidrobot Bots Mini Series – Value $9.99
My kids are not that into Skylander, but I think I will hold on to this little guy for future bribing purposes. Something tells me they will get into it eventually, since they seem to get into everything at some point. The Kidrobot Bot is a blind box – so fun! I think my seven-year-old will really like this little guy!
The Verdict: Nerd Block Jr. for Boys is awesome! I think any kids in this age range would love to get this package, male or female. I also like that some of these items are discontinued or difficult to find – I think that’s step one in becaoming a valuable collector’s item some day! Plus, the value comes to about $41, which is wonderful for a $20 subscription box!
