This month’s theme is “HORROR”. How apropos!


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.


“Get Caught” Exclusive T-shirt – Value $15?

My ten-year-old claimed this tee right away! What a fun mashup of characters! This is a youth size large, and my son is an average sized ten-year-old. That should give you some idea of fit if you are considering this subscription for a youngster.


Glow in the Dark Sticker – Value $3?

It’s Boo from Mario! My kids love all things Mario, especially my eight-year-old. This was a fun win!


Ghost Bottle Opener – Value $7?

So yeah, I’m keeping this. I spent a sizable chunk of my childhood playing Pac Man, and the kids don’t need a bottle opener keychain. Right?



Zombie Tile Bracelet – Value – $10?

This is actually a really cool bracelet! It makes me wish I was into The Walking Dead, but we don’t watch it at my house, unfortunately. I have tons of friends who are into it, though, so it will be easy to gift this!



Jack Skellington Dorbz – Value $6.99

What a cutie! My eight-year-old (also a cutie) collects Dorbz, and he doesn’t have this one yet. The boys are also big fans of Jack Skellington! Awesome!

Verdict: We think 1Up Box is awesome! My kids absolutely love this subscription. I’m keeping that bottle opener, though! The value this month adds up to about $42, which is great for a $20 box.

What do you think of 1Up Box?
