So many people are all-in on the monthly subscription boxes that I would be remiss if I didn't bring up Nerd Block, Jr. on the blog!
Nerd Block, Jr. is a monthly subscription box that you have delivered. Inside of it are items carefully selected by the staff for your boy or girl (you get to choose your gender). It is designed to bring a little touch of monthly fun to your kiddo(s). We knew when we opened our box and saw the 'Aww Yeah!' printed on the side that we were going to have a good time.
We were right too... inside of the box was a cool assortment of items for my son to sample.
The Cliccors were a big hit because you can bend and twist them into different shapes. They're made of interlocking plastic and they go right back into shape without any problem at all. These kinds of things are a hit with the boys and girls when they're in the 1st-grade. Little ones like to wear something around for a bit that's new. If it's got a play factor like these do, well then, that's even better.
Little figures, likewise, are a big deal. The Transformer above came with a little display stand too (that's what is next to the figure in the picture). A check list was included so the kids could see which figure they had, and which ones are still available for purchase.
Usually you get one figure in a surprise foil pack, and that in itself is exciting to my 7-yr.-old. When he opened his Hobbit foil pkg., there were THREE mini-figures inside, and yep, that was a big deal. :)
Imps and Monsters was included in the box. This was a softcover book full of activities for the kids to do, and it was perfect for the lengthy car ride we took to meet grandpa (for his birthday) last week. It kept the kids busy by giving them something constructive to do.
Kirby, a popular video game character, was included in the box. I thought my son was going to dismiss him because he doesn't know the game, and the toy is pink. Boy, was I wrong. My son's favorite two stuffed animals in the world are pink Minecraft pigs, and Kirby is now their little pink friend. He holds conversations with the pigs and gets tucked in with my son and his stuffed animals at night. I'm so not kidding. In fact, I think Kirby was the most loved thing in the box.
Ya' think ya' know a kid... ;)
These boxes run $13.99 - $19.99 a month, plus shipping, and are always loaded full with surprises like you see here in the review. You can order for a girl or boy, and delivery goes to a good number of countries (check the website to determine if you can get it where you live). The subscription can be started or ended at any time, and there is never an obligation to buy.
