This month’s theme is “ADVENTURE II”. I’m guessing that means this is the second adventure-themed box from 1UP.


This is the information card that was included in the package, detailing its contents. Please note that since many of the items in 1Up Box are custom / exclusive, lots of these values are guesses. Also, my box was missing the themed button that is normally included. I am reaching out to Customer Service to let them know and awaiting resolution.



“Adventure Bros” Exclusive T-shirt – Value $15?

The boys both liked this tee a lot! I can see why – what a fun collection of characters!


Super Mario Shades – Value $9.99

OMG these are hilarious! We have had these for less than 24 hours now and I think we have all worn them to crack each other up at least once. We love Mario!


Link Socks – Value $5?

These socks are perfect for my ten-year-old! He recently got into Legend of Zelda, and he has big feet! Haha! They are soft and very warm, too.


Super Mushroom Bow Tie – Value – $8?

I mentioned that we love Mario, and this little bow tie is a big hit! For some reason, there’s a trend amongst 8-to-10-year-olds in our area to wear bow ties right now. I hope it passes quickly, but in the meantime, they are stoked on this tie!


Stormtrooper Keychain – Value $8

This keychain was an easy win for my ten-year-old! He is such a Star Wars fanatic!

Verdict: We think 1Up Box is awesome! Everything they sent this month was a hit! The Mario shades were an instant classic. The value this month adds up to about $46, which is great for a $20 box.
