Mine Chest Minecraft Subscription “The Journey Continues” Review
Mine Chest is back! It is a subscription service that delivers official and exclusive Minecraft items every month! Mine Chest was partnered with Loot Crate for a while, but they are now back on their own and started shipping monthly again as of August. They have been on hiatus since January. My ten-year-old son could not be more excited!
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Mine Chest August 2018 Review
This month’s theme is The Journey Continues! Which is fitting, as this is their re-launch box. They used to send out cool holographic postcards with this sort of narrative written on it, but now it seems to be a poster instead. My son really likes it since he can put it in his locker! It’s the perfect size for the door!
Exclusive Minecraft Tee – Estimated Value $15
Possibly my favorite thing about our Mine Chest subscription is having my son explain to me what the tee shirt depicts. This month it’s a scene from this month’s biome, the Aquatic, which I believe is a recently upgraded biome. You can see fish and sea creatures, and a shipwreck in the background. The trident-wielding person over to the right is one of The Drowned, which I think is kind of creepy, but I guess there’s a whole array of kind of creepy bad guys in Minecraft. The important thing is that my son loves his new tee! He is wearing a Youth Medium and is exact average height and weight for a ten-year-old, for reference.
Mine Chest Exclusive Stickers (two sheets) – Estimated Value $2
These sticker sheets are kind of cooler than your average stickers, because they are actually tons of little stickers, and you can use them to build up a Minecraft world on paper! This one is full of more sea creatures.
Hologram – Estimated Value $2
This is another Mine Chest exclusive! It’s a hologram! I am wondering if next month they will send out another hexagon and my son will eventually be able to fit all the hexagon biomes together into a Minecraft world. That would be cool! This one depicts more sea scenes, with fish and coral reefs and another of The Drowned.
Minecraft Exclusive Pin – Estimated Value $5
It’s a puffer fish! When my son told me that, I actually thought it was pretty cute! He loves these pins for sticking into his cork board.
Minecraft Plush Hanger – “The Drowned” – Estimated Value $10
Yep, it’s a drowned head! I’m actually kind of conflicted about how creepy this is getting. In any case, it has adorable scars? This is another Mine Chest exclusive!
The Verdict: After a seven-month hiatus, this was an awesome re-launch package from Mine Chest! I mainly gauge how cool a Mine Chest is by my son’s reactions to the swag, and it never disappoints. This month his favorite item was the tee. He has been into the Minecraft plush toys they have been sending for a while now because he can use them kind of like blocks, but I’m glad his favorite was the tee this month. He also really likes sharing this subscription with his friends. The value of everything this month adds up to about $34 if my guesses are near accurate, which beats the cost of the box by about $4. This is such a fun subscription for Minecraft fans!
