The Nick Box: Live Action Nick Box Review – Winter 2016
The Nick Box is a brand new, licensed, quarterly box featuring all things ’90s Nickelodeon! Each quarter is themed around a different Nickelodeon fandom. This Winter 2016 box featured Live Action Nick!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This box is still available and is shipping now!
The Subscription Box: The Nick Box
The Cost: $49.99 + $7 S/H
The Products: a mystery selection of ’90s Nickelodeon-related clothing, accessories, toys, and more!
Ships to: US
Each quarter has its own theme. The winter theme was Live Action Nick! It features some of your favorite 90’s Live Action Nickelodeon franchises.
These are all exclusive items so I’m leaving the value up to you for each item.
It comes with a card that shows off each item in the box!
Pete & Pete Hat
The first item is one you’ve seen us unveil at New York Comic-Con with Danny Tamberelli! If not – check out the video here:
This was such a blast! Back to the hat.
This is the classic flannel hat from Pete and Pete. It’s got some stretch, so I think it will fit a majority of subscribers.
It’s actually pretty warm, too – I’m wearing it as I’m writing this review and it’s cozy on this cold day.
In the video, Danny also applies the famous Petunia tattoo – now you have your own!
Welcome to Good Burger, Home of the Good Burger.
Good Burger Apron and Hat
There are 2 Good Burger items this month!
You’ll receive both the classic hat and apron from the show/movie.
The apron is a little bit short – it came down to about the length of a normal t-shirt, but it’s fun to wear!
The hat is the perfect prop to complete the look – it’s also got the Good Burger logo on the side.
GUTS Aggro Crag Desk Statue
Who didn’t want a piece of the Aggro Crag?!
This miniature version of the prized possession is 4 inches tall at its highest point. It’s a little translucent and is, of course, the classic slime green – it’s ready for your desk!
Double Dare “Pick It” Nose Tissue Dispenser
Another favorite live competition show from Nick was Double Dare (didn’t these resurrect this as well?).
One of my favorite portions of the competition was trying to find the flag in the gigantic nose – this brings that action to your home!
This sits on top of a square tissue dispenser and allows you to pull tissues through the nose.
The downfall – since the nose is hard plastic, there are some sharper edges that can shred the tissues as they’re being pulled through. I took a nail file and smoothed some of the edges which made it work better.
Shrine of the Silver Monkey Puzzle
My favorite game show was Legends of the Hidden Temple – this next item is perfect!
This is a 3 inch tall mini Silver Monkey puzzle – just like the in the show, you’ll need to assemble the 3 pieces to win the game!
Clarissa Explains It All Notebook and Stickers
This was another item we spoiler a month or so ago – your very own Clarissa Explains It All notebook and sticker set.
The notebook itself is pretty basic – but it has that Mead notebook look to the cover.
The stickers are a collection of some classic Clarissa sayings!
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? Flashlight
Become an honorary member of the Midnight Society with this themed flashlight.
It’s an LED flashlight – so the batteries should last longer than a normal flashlight, too.
Make Your Own Stick Stickly Kit
Make your very own version of the classic character that you grew up with!
Here’s our Stick Stickly! This was a fun addition – it really brought me back after watching Stick Sticky videos.
Verdict: I really love unboxing The Nick Box – it’s one of those boxes that everyone wants to see inside when we’re taking pictures! This is only the second box – but I’m already excited for the next theme! It’s almost like opening a time capsule – if you grew up on these shows, you’ll get a kick out of every item in the box. Once again, this was a great job from The Nick Box!
