Good to Know: My boys are both enormous nerds. I consider it a point of pride!


Minions Mystery Figures by Mega Bloks – Value $3?
(I couldn’t find this exact one for sale online.)

Minions Dog Tag Necklace – Value $3.50

Minions Projector Pen – Value $7.50

Hooray for a Minions haul! All four of us loved the Despicable Me movies, but my eight-year-old especially loves the Minions. This was a big win for him!


Transformers Mash’ems – Value $3.99

My eight-year-old is also way into Transformers, so he was happy to see this odd little toy. It’s basically like a Transformers stress ball. Fun!


Transformers Pop-Outz! – Value $4.98

Don’t tell the boys, but these are totally paper dolls! Optimus Prime paper dolls! The are made of cardboard, and you can color them and then put them on their little cardboard stands.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Face Ice Cube Tray – Value $17.99

Nerd Block Jr. sent us a spoiler card last month about receiving something awesome from TMNT this month, and I have to say, I was not expecting an ice cube tray. My sons love TMNT, but I think they were hoping for a toy more than a houseware type item.



Kung Fu Panda #1 – Value $3.99

My nine-year-old son has a fledgling comic book collection, and he was thrilled to see this! This is exactly his speed. I would like to see more comics in NBJ. They are super nerdy, and the comic subscriptions I’ve been looking at for my son seem like they might not be for kids. This is perfect!

Verdict: We love Nerd Block Jr.! Aside from the ice cube tray, the kids loved everything they received this month. I like that Nerd Block includes some hard-to-find items in their boxes, too. The value of everything combined in this box is about $45, and that’s awesome for a $20 box!

What do you think of Nerd Block Jr. for Boys?

  1. I purchasee the exact same ice cube try at fred myers for $3.99, and it wasnt even on sale !

  2. Those ice cube trays are great for making jello jigglers for kids too!

  3. They say they’re not in love with the ice cube tray, but just wait until they’re drinking their juice with Michelangelo staring back at them

    • That, or if it’s a silicone mold, which it looks like, you can use it to make chocolates!

    • Make the cubes with green Kool-Aid and I have a feeling they will fall in love with the ice cube tray! They would be so cute floating in fizzy water or Sprite!

      Also i think I saw those minion Megablox things by the register at Five Below. I don’t have kids or buy that kind of thing, but I do love minions and the package does look super familiar!

    • Great ideas, y’all! And thanks for the tip, Chelsea. I love the Minions, too.
