This review is of the Nerd Block Jr. for Boys, $19.95 a month, box.
The Subscription Box: Nerd Block Junior for Boys
The Cost: $19.95 plus shipping. ($6 shipping to the U.S.)
The Products: Geeky gear for kids ages 6-11 (this subscription is only toys – no t-shirt like the regular Nerd Block subscription).
Ships to: Worldwide!
Good to Know: My boys are both enormous nerds. I consider it a point of pride!
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
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 note was included this month. They ran out of Youth M tees! So, they sent a Youth L and a ShirtPunch shirt in a Youth M. That works for us!
Exclusive T-Shirt: Power Rangers – Value $15?
This is the tee that regular subscribers were sent. My sons were at Grandma’s this week for spring break, so I’m sorry they are not here to model this box this time! But don’t worry, I did an unboxing for them on FaceTime. They both got the reference on this shirt and thought it looked cool! (But I don’t know how into Power Rangers they are, to be honest.) It looks like it will fit my eleven-year-old pretty well, too.
Shirtpunch! T-Shirt: Space Balls – Value $15?
This tee is hilarious! But I don’t think my kids have actually ever seen Space Balls. They seemed kind of confused by it. I guess that’s another movie we will have to get them caught up on! I think this might be a better shirt for an adult.
Angry Birds Poster Book – Value $3.64
My nine-year-old was super excited about this book of locker-size posters. He loves Angry Birds! I love them, too. He thought the hyper-realistic looking character posters were a little creepy, though.
Transformers Dog Tags – Value about $14
Do boys ever stop being Transformers fans? My eleven-year-old has a little collection of dog tags, and he will happily be adding these. I could only find them for sale online in Canada on eBay, so they seem to be pretty rare.
National Geographic Kids Magazine – Value $4.99
I guess NBJB is making National Geographic KIDS a regular inclusion, and I’m so glad! It’s great, interesting reading with lots of fun activities! This month my nine-year-old was fascinated by the salt flat/lake mirage article.
Galactic Hot Dogs Stickers – Value $1?
I couldn’t find these stickers for sale anywhere online, so the value is a bit of a guess. My sons and I are both ignorant of the Galactic Hot Dogs characters, which apparently are books. But if their catch phrase is really “What the butt?” then I’m not sure I want them to be a part of our lives right now.
Pokeball Lanyard – Value $3
Does anyone know why a nine-year-old might need a lanyard? I think it’s hilarious, but my nine-year-old claimed this immediately. He loves it!
Emoji Erasers Blind Bag – Value $2.99
Another score for the nine-year-old! I am still bewildered by the popularity of the poo emoji, but it’s somehow more tolerable in harmless eraser form. The laughing and love eyes ones are awesome! Plus school supply swag is some of the best nerd swag for these guys.
Dork Diaries OMG!: All About Me Diary! by Rachel Renee Russell- Value $7.92 on Amazon (retail price $12.99)
OK, this is a little strange. This is a fun diary, and I think one of my sons might like it, that’s not the strange part. The strange thing is that it’s not on the info card, and I noticed it was an item in this month’s Nerd Block Jr. Girls’ subscription! Do you think they might have accidentally included it in our box? Oh well, bonus!
Verdict: My sons love Nerd Block Junior for Boys! This month was a mix of hits and misses, but that’s pretty typical, I think. I don’t think this month’s tees were our favorites, but we were happy to get two of them, that was a pretty generous move on the part of NBJB. This month, I think my nine-year-old liked the posters and lanyard the best. What a nerd! The value this month adds up to about $53 (not accounting for the second tee), which is awesome for a $20 box!
