Powdered Toastman Kitchen Apron – Value $20-25?

This is like a dream come true – what Nicktoons fan didn’t love Powdered Toastman?

If you’re a fan of the Sega Genesis Ren and Stimpy game like I was (like I am, really – I’ve definitely played through it in the past calendar year!) – then when you see him, you might also hear “Leave everything to me!” in your head.

Nothing too fancy here, it’s your basic apron. It’s good quality material and might be the best apron ever.

Mr. Tastee Vinyl Figure – Value $15-20?

Let’s start this off with a little Mr. Tastee (that features Micahel Stipe!):

Fear not. Mr. Tastee can now be found on your work desk! I’ve always been a fan of the Culturefly vinyl figures – especially from The Nick Box – and this latest one just adds to the nostalgia.

Of course, they’ve done a great job incorporating pieces of the show into the packaging – they typically impress me with these details.

Wild Thornberrys Jolly Good Sardines Socks – Value $12?

You’ll get a pair of Wild Thornberrys themed sardine socks. These are pretty basic socks – no extra padding or anything like that, and not too thick.

Rugrats Cookie Stamp Set – Value $10-15?

If you decide to bust out your Powdered Toast Man apron to make some cookies – why not give those a Nicktoons feel with some Rugrats cookie stamps?

It has a nice little pouch to keep your set together. Just pop on the cookie press of your choosing and go to town.

You won’t want to burn those cookies, right? So keep the Rugrats theme going with a spinning timer themed after Reptar On Ice.

Rocko’s Modern Life Enchanted Up-Chucks Pin Set – Value $15-20?

First, I’d like to acknowledge how fun the reveal is – the pins are aligned perfectly on the couch with Rocko and Spunky – I actually plan to leave it all in place.

Quality-wise, they’re right in line with what I typically receive – I’m loving these.

Meet my new favorite “stress ball”. This thing is pretty much the size of a real burger – I’ve been using it around the office since opening up this box.

Finally, finish off this food-related box with some food-related Nicktoons as a part of your decor.

Verdict: The Nick Box has yet to really let me down – and that trend continued here. I honestly will never have enough Ren and Stimpy or Rocko items, and this box just keeps delivering the goods. On top of that, these are consistently my favorite vinyl figures – Mr. Tastee is just awesome and obscure.

  1. The Adventures of Pete and Pete is one of the best shows in history. I just showed my kids a couple of episodes and its wonderful weirdness still holds up. Love the Mr. Tastee

  2. I really love the apron, even if I’m afraid it will melt if I lean against a hot pan, lol.
