Each month is themed – March’s box was a TEAM themed box.

It has been exactly 1 year since I’ve reviewed this box – so I was excited to take a peek again!



You’ll get an insert card that details each item in your box.


Theme Button – Value $2?

You’ll get a button that shows off the month’s theme.


“Race” Shirt – Value $15?

Each month includes an exclusive t-shirt – this month’s shirt features Rocket, Sonic, and The Flash – what a race that’d be! One thing I forgot was how comfortable these shirts are! They’re 65% polyester and 35% ringspun cotton – SUPER soft right out of the box.


Sonic BOOM Plush – Value $12 on Amazon

This month includes a Sonic plush toy.



I grew up on Sonic, and I can’t wait for the Sonic Manie game (I’ve had it pre-ordered for quite a while) – but Buckles always steals the plush toys from boxes! He got this one and loves playing with it.


Adventure Poster – Value $5-10?

This poster almost feels like sticker paper – it’s thin and glossy.


Finn and Jake are represented in a bit of an Anime style in this 14×6.5 inch poster.


Mutant Slap Bracelet – Value $5?

here’s a blast from the past – a slap bracelet! This features little animated versions of the X-Men.


They’re almost in POP form – I like the character design even though I don’t have a use for a slap bracelet.


Turtle Stick Set – Value $5?

The last item is a TMNT sticker set.


The character design reminds me a bit of Castle Crashers – and I love that it includes a pizza. It has to include a pizza.

Verdict: Anna had been reviewing this box for the past year because it’s a geek box more focused at the younger audience – and that’s still true. Not much has changed in the past year, but I feel like the formula is still working for their subscribers, so why change it? This is a great option if you’re looking to get some small surprises for a kid.

What did you think of the March 2017 ‘TEAM’ themed 1UP Box?

  1. I am always impressed with the quality of their T-shirts. It’s been a while since we received one of their boxes, but the t-shirts have lasted a long time. Loot crate t-shirts always shrink and fade.

  2. Yay Eric! Glad to see you reviewing this box again!

    • I’ll be reviewing this and Super Geek Box again – thanks for reading!
