We’re pretty big nerds, geeks, whatever you want to call us in this household. Video games, comic books, POP! vinyl figures, and more fill our house. We debate Marvel vs DC universe. Family video game night is once a week. My husband actually started to fall for me when I didn’t shutter at the huge comic book collection he had hidden in his closet when we first met, in fact, he was thoroughly impressed by my knowledge, despite my clean cut, “girly” appearance. Once our son was born, he dreamed of all the nerdy bonding they would do and they have done a lot over the past five years. Sonshine is the cutest little nerd around. So when we started getting a box filled with goodies each month, he was upset that there were not enough or any things meant for his age. With Nerd Block JR. Sonshine gets his own personal box, filled with age appropriate items!
What exactly is Nerd Block JR.? It’s a monthly subscription box filled with goodies that any little nerd would love. For $13.99 a month, you can choose a box for boys or girls and have it shipped directly to your door. Simple and fun! The recommended age for the JR. box is 6-11, but my little guy is 5 and has loved it so far! I like how the boxes are gender specific, although most kids like toys regardless, it’s still fun to have a box not filled with Barbie when you’re all about Skylanders!
Now each month gets a new box. The surprise is seeing what you get. For December, Sonshine openned a box with a few great items. As it was our first box, I wasn’t sure what to expect. We adults subscribe to another monthly box, but I’ve kept tabs on Nerd Block to compare. For the December box, we had:
Sonshine loves everything, expect for the stickers. (But we don’t allow Sponge Bob in our home for personal reasons) The LED night light has a cute happy face on the front and Nerd Block JR on the back. It lights up in different colors and doesn’t get warm to the touch and has been seen in the wee hours of the night. The notebook and pens are in good use, as he’s making his own story book. I have no idea what a BeyBlade is, but his rough features fit in with our mass of other actions figures, bonus, he spins like a top, and what’s not cool about that?
The box seemed a bit sparse in comparison to other past ones, but I find that it being December’s box, why compete with the holiday season? It’s fun getting a personal box in the mail when you’re a kid, but it was the time of year that things like that could get overshadowed, so I thought that was a smart idea on Nerd Block’s part. We’re really looking forward to seeing what January’s box holds and I’ll be unboxing it soon as it arrives!
