Usually, Nerd Block Jr. sends a list a card showing you what comes in the box but this month I didn’t receive a card.
Hello Kitty Charm Bracelet – Value $12.49
This bracelet is kind of cute and my 7-year-old said she liked it but she isn’t really into Hello Kitty anymore. I have a hard time seeing the value of this as $12.49 but Hello Kitty items can be kind of expensive sometimes.
Cliccors (nerdBLOCK exclusive) – Value $2.99?
My daughter thought this was kind of fun- a bit like a fidget toy. She used it for a couple minutes but tired of it quickly. It was fun to open the box and see another surprise inside though. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a match for this item online but there were a couple used ones for sale on eBay.
Plants vs Zombies GW2 Metal Lunchbox – Value $9.99?
This is cute but not something my daughter is into at all. Metal boxes are fun but not so functional for our lunches so we’ll give this away. I couldn’t find this for sale any place except for eBay so the value is a guess.
Monster Factory Stay Puft Marshmallow Man – Value $8.99?
The marshmallow man from Ghostbusters is cute-ish. Cira scares easily and is only 7 so she hasn’t seen this movie yet. We’re striking out this month. ☹ I couldn’t find this product online either except for an overpriced one on Amazon from nerdBLOCK for $18.99 plus $6.07 shipping.
Power Rangers Water Bottle – Value $18.36
I like that there is both a lunch box and a water bottle in this box but I think these items are not good choices for the girl’s box. Cira didn’t like this item either which is a bummer because it is a high-ticket item in this month’s box.
DesignWare Print Decoration Pokemon – Value $6.89
I guess these are for hanging on the walls but again, Cira isn’t into Pokemon so this isn’t our cup of tea. We’ll have to give these away but we know some little boys that are into Pokemon so someone will be happy.
Despicable Me Minion Key Chain – Value $4.95?
We like The Despicable Me series and the minions are cute, of course. This is okay for Cira, I guess. She wasn’t exactly excited about it. I couldn’t find an exact match for this keychain but I found others that were similar to the price I listed above.
Verdict: My daughter usually looks forward to getting Nerd Block Junior for Girls but this month was a total bust for us. Plus, there wasn’t any t-shirt in this box. I tried to get on the nerdBLOCK website to contact them but couldn’t since the website is down. Last month there were problems with mailing too and I ended up not receiving the box at all.
This box $19.95 plus $9.95 shipping seems high for a t-shirt and a couple toys my daughter likes each month and when a month is bad like this one, I’m really bummed. It certainly doesn’t help that I can’t contact them currently either. The July Nerd Block Junior for Girls included approximately $64.66 worth of toys for a $30.00 box (includes shipping cost).
