Toy Box Monthly Subscription Box Review – September 2016


Toy Box Monthly is a monthly surprise box of toys. Each month you’ll receive a curated box of 4-6 toys. You can choose between a Boys box, Girls box or a Mix of both. This review is for the mixture of both boys and girls.

There was no information card provided in this box.


Pokémon Steam Siege Booster Pack – $4.69

My son isn’t playing with Pokémon cards yet. He has never even heard of it before so a booster pack of cards would mean nothing to him. This pack of authentic cards will be passed along to my nephew who loves Pokémon.



Shopkins Season 5 Backpack Set– $7.00

Now that we’ve been receiving Toy Box Monthly for a few months my kids have learned about Shopkins. We’ve received a Shopkins plushy key chain, tote bag and pen, but this is our first actual Shopkins! This set came with two hard plastic boxes shaped like backpacks and inside each backpack was a Shopkin. Both my son and daughter have now fallen under the spell that is “Shopkins!!” and are requesting more for their upcoming birthdays.


Crossy Road Minifigure – $3.75

Crossy Road is a Disney 8-bit adventure game. I’d never heard of Crossy Road so when I opened up the box with my kids we were all unsure of what this character was. There are thirteen figurines to collect. And from the pictures on the box, the faceless man we received seems to be the most boring of the bunch.




Shopkins Metal Pencil Case – $5.30

Now that my kids have started to succumb to Shopkins mania this pencil case was a huge hit. It’s metal on the inside and wrapped in fabric. It easily zips open and closed.



Splashlings Mystery Pack- $5.88

Spashlings was another new toy for us – I think we have to get out more! This mystery pack came with one small Splashlings figurine and 5 trading cards.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Capture the Kraang Game – $5.97

This is a fishing game in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle style. We had this same game that we bought at Five Below and unfortunately it was cheaply made and got tossed after a few weeks. I’m adding this to my toy donation pile for all the upcoming holiday toy drives.

Verdict: The value of this box was over $32 which is fantastic for a $15 box. My kids loved both Shopkins toys this month, but the Pokemon cards, Crossy Road mini figure and TMNT game weren’t hits for my family. I imagine for older kids these toys may have been more successful. I feel they do a great job staying on top of which characters and toys are currently trending with young kids (many so trendy my young kids don’t even know what they are!). I’m hoping next month is more successful for us, but I realize not every toy is for every family.

  1. Do they customize it by age? The only thing my kids might be interested in is the Pokémon cards

  2. Not trying to be snarky at all but all I saw was small things to be stepped on, swallowed or lost in 5 minutes.

  3. I love Shopkins..but a two pack season five is 2.88 at WalMart not 7 bucks!

  4. My son is in second grade. All of these toys are the hot toys for him and his group of friends. I might have to give this box a try
