Nerd Block Jr. has just recently started including information cards that list out the contents, and I am so pleased! Sometimes with the geek boxes, it’s hard to tell what something is!
This month, Nerd Block included a $10 coupon for their new shop! They also included a $10 coupon for Shirt Punch, and on the back is a portion of a picture. The object of this coupon game is to collect all ten portions of the picture and make a set. If you collect all ten, you get a $100 shirt punch gift card!
Exclusive Shirtpunch! T-Shirt: Nerf – Value $15?
My eight-year-old claimed the tee this month. Although it’s a little big on him, he loves it! He is such a nerd – he absolutely loves structural diagrams, of almost anything. He was thrilled to see this nerf gun blueprint! He is average height for an eight-year-old, but a little slender, and this is a youth size large. I mention this to help you in case you are considering this subscription for a lucky kid in your life.
BB-8 Zipper Pull – Value $5?
Yep, this went straight on my ten-year-old’s backpack. Anything Star Wars is a guaranteed hit in my house! I could not find this exact one on sale online, so the value is an estimate.
Plants vs. Zombies Mini Comic Set – Value $12
My eight-year-old is a MEGA fan of Plants vs. Zombies! He just got Garden Warfare for Christmas, and he was so happy to get this cool mini-comic set! Subscribers received one of three possible varieties.
National Geographic Kids Magazine – Value $4.99 (single issue)
This is the second month in a row NBJB has sent National Geographic KIDS, and I am so glad! I hope they make it a regular inclusion. It’s great, interesting reading with lots of fun activities!
Fantasma Magic Set – Value $9.99?
I have to admit I’m a little underwhelmed by the quality of this magic kit. My kids are definitely not interested in it, either. I think Nerd Block Junior keeps getting better and better… They might have been better off to leave this out.
Nerd Block Cube Plush – Value $10?
It’s the Nerd Block Mascot! In plush form! My eight-year-old loves this.
Design Your Own Superhero Mask – Value $19.99
My kids were not into this, but I thought it was really cool, so I gave it to my nephew on Christmas. I am assuming he will decorate it at some point, but in the mean time, doesn’t he look adorable?
Avengers Slap Bracelet – Value $5?
My sons aren’t into bracelets at all, but they have a girl friend in mind to receive this beauty. She can wear Iron Man’s heart on her sleeve! Yes, I think we all know who the real nerd is around here.
We also received this card with some spoilers for our January box!
Verdict: My sons love Nerd Block Jr. for Boys! This month was a mix of hits and misses, but now that NBJB is including more items, I guess that’s okay! They especially love getting more nerd tees, so we are glad they have started including them. The estimated value this month adds up to about $82, which is amazing for a $20 box!
