Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. The theme this month is Pixels.


“A-Bit-Crazy” T-Shirt – Value $10?

This month’s t-shirt is Nintendo based, and it’s pretty great. I love the SNES and N64 controllers in there, along with the Game Boy! Lots of Nintendo favorite systems, characters, and games are captured on this month’s shirt – this is one of their best, in my opinion.


Cuby Paper Craft – Value ?

This exclusive item allows you to create your own paper cube friend. They’re calling it ‘Cuby’, but, of course, it’s Kirby!

8-Bit Stickers – Value ?

This is my favorite item of the box – little 3D stickers of all the best superheroes and villains! So many greats are represented here, from Batman and The Joker, The Avengers, Deadpool, and Wolverine to Finn and Jake, TMNT, and the Super Mario Brothers!


“Pixels” Pin

Pixel Sword Necklace – Value ?

Lots of exclusives again this month – and here is another. This is a Minecraft based necklace. I’m not a big Minecraft fan, but I know it’s a massive hit, so I’m sure there are lots of people loving this item!


Minecraft Squid Plush – Value $8.89

This plush is an Overworld Squid from Minecraft. While, again, I’m not a big fan – I do love the squid’s expression!

8-Bit Bowtie – Value $5.95

This 8-Bit Bowtie is made of a thick but flexible plastic.

Verdict: This was a good month for 1UP Box. I like the shirt, and loved the small stickers. Since I’m older, I do wish they’d include more older system games/characters for their Pixels theme. But, I’m sure Minecraft fans will absolutely LOVE this box.

What did you think of this month’s 1UP Box?

  1. I like this box a lot. Nice mix of items. Hope they continue to have more boxes like this one.

  2. My 10 year old girl loved it. She wore her bow and necklace to school today. I think she would have taken the squid with her if I would have let her. For most of the stickers she gets I put a magnetic backing on them so I don’t have to try and peel them off the walls. These are a little small, but I think I will try. She might get a kick out of using them on her dry erase board, and acting out scenes on it.

  3. I had cancelled because we had a few boxes not up our alley. But I am still and on their email list. When I saw the spoiler for sept was pixels with a mine craft theme, I resubbed cause I have 7 and 10 year olds and they are very into mine craft. This box was a huge hit with them, but we got a baby sheep plush which is ok; any of the options would be fine with my boys. I love the diamond sword necklace ;).
    With this box, I cancel and resub depending on theme….

  4. “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.” – isn’t this a Legend of Zelda reference? The sword doesn’t look like Link’s sword though.

    • That’s where I remember that phrase from. <3 Zelda

    • It’s a Legend of Zelda and Minecraft crossover necklace.

  5. Love this box! I got the sheep:)

  6. Nice review! Actually sad we cancelled. Looking to purchase the squid and stickers.
