Awesome Pack Subscription Box Review – July 2015
Awesome Pack is a newish subscription box that’s all about family fun time! They send board games, toys, and activities to encourage quality time together. I love the concept!
They offer a Family Pack if you need items that would work for young and older kids, or a Big Kid Pack for older kids and adults. (This review is of the Family Pack).
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Awesome Pack
The Cost: $44.99 (US) ($52.49 CAD)
The Products: A board game in every box, plus other toys and activities (customized to your family).
Ships to: US and Canada
When I signed my family up for this subscription, Awesome Pack sent me a pretty extensive quiz about what games my family likes (and what we already have to avoid duplicates). It also asked about the ages of the children and other general interest questions. It’s pretty highly customized! I like that!
As always, they included a fun family activity booklet, but ALSO this month they included a birthday card for my husband! His birthday was in July! How thoughtful is that?
Fun Farm Board Game – Value $24.94 on Amazon
This looks like a fun, fast-paced game for the kids to play, with or without us! Plus it got 5 stars on Amazon!
Marvel Heroes Spiderman Puzzle – Value $6.99 for a similar one on Amazon
My sons haven’t been into jigsaw puzzles for quite a while, but I don’t think they have ever tried a 100 piece puzzle. Plus I know Spiderman will be an added incentive to try!
Scientific Explorer Disgusting Slime Kit – Value $7.61 on Amazon
It’s not Awesome Pack’s fault, but the boys are totally over slime thanks to subscription boxes. We will gift or swap this.
Fantasma Toys Classic Magic – New 25 Illusions – Value $15.51 on Amazon
This magic kit, on the other hand, looks completely awesome! The tricks look simple and impressive. I think the boys will have a blast with this one!
Mega Bloks SpongeBob Micro Series III Toy Figure Assortment – Value $6.09 each on Amazon
Hooray for blind packs! A mystery inside a mystery! I love that they sent two, one for each child. I really appreciate when they do that, it’s so much easier. These are going straight into the bribe bag.
The Verdict: We love Awesome Pack! So far it has been totally awesome! We have all actually really enjoyed trying out new board games every month together, and the games and activities have been spot on for the most part. The value this month came to about $67, which is outstanding for a $45 box. I’m really happy with this subscription so far!
