    Double Dare “Pick It” Pin

    Who doesn’t remember that iconic giant nose?! I remember being delighted watching kids my age dig around in there to find the next Double Dare clue. This pin is really fun and nostalgic, and the enamel is bright and tidy.

      Stick Stickly Long-Sleeve Tee

      Oh, Stick Stickly. There is something so special about being from a generation that spent afternoons with a popsicle stick. This shirt is very soft, and the graphic features Stick at his hosting desk. Can we get a Stick Stickly reboot for adults, please? Can he host my Netflix account?

        Legends of the Hidden Temple Pint Glass

        What kid didn’t want to be on this action-packed, Indiana-Jones-esque adventure game show? I vividly remember rooting for kids on the tv from my living room and getting so excited when the temple guards would come out and chase them. What makes this glass even cooler is that Olmec’s eyes change color with the temperature of your beverage!

          Legends of the Hidden Temple Coaster Set

          Before Harry Potter and sorting houses, there were Legends of the Hidden Temple teams! Did you know the Red Jaguars have the most all-time wins? The Orange Iguanas came in last. Womp womp. Every team’s emblem appears in this coaster set, which is made from hard composite material and cork.

            Clarissa Explains It All Fanny Pack

            Clarissa was a major fashion icon! She was also the first female lead in any Nick show, paving the way for other characters like Alex Mac and Shelby Wu. This fanny pack is a great testament to this bold fashionista and just reeks of 90s goodness.

              Nickelodeon Slap Bracelet

              This slap bracelet features characters from across the NickToons spectrum—Rugrats, CatDog, Angry Beavers, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Ren and Stimpy, and Hey Arnold!

                GUTS Aggro Crag Keychain

                I don’t remember being a huge GUTS fan, but I feel like most 90s kids can recognize the Aggro Crag from a mile away. This keychain pays tribute to this iconic obstacle and also looks like the trophies that were given to its conquerors.

                  Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Vinyl

                  Finally, I got received a vinyl figurine featuring everyone’s favorite monsters! It is highly detailed, and I can’t help but smile when I look at Ikis, Oblina, and Crumm coming out of a toilet.

                  Verdict: This Nick Box was full of nostalgia I couldn’t even handle it. I love the variety of the items and the range of shows they pulled from. This box really took me right back to rushing home and watching some of my favorite shows until my mom yelled at me to do my homework. All of these items are exclusive and incredibly well-made. If you love or collect anything Nick-related, this box will absolutely be a win for you!

                  I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

                  1. What a great vinyl figure! Cool getting a three-in-one. I would have to join the fashion of crossbody fanny pack with this one. The colors are so representative of the show. Seeing the slap bracelet immediately brought to mind the yell anytime someone put one on.

                    Very nice review. Thanks!
