Nerd Block Jr is a subscription box for boys or girls (you pick the box) with fun “nerdy” tchotkes just for them. I haven’t picked up a Nerd Block in a while (love the main box!) so I thought I’d get a Jr Block, as I’d never tried it out. I wasn’t particularly wowed by this one, unfortunately. Gripe 1 – Why do subscription boxes design really cool boxes and forget that they need mailing labels on them? Can we not reserve a spot for the label? Mmmmkay? I know, it’s a small gripe, but it’s a little detail that goes a long way with me!
Gripe 2 – Why can Nerd Block not figure out how to ship like a family block, or multiple blocks, all together, to save on the insane shipping costs from Canada? Because I sure would like to get one or 2 of the Jr blocks plus a grown up block. But I’m not really going to blow $14-$20 on shipping. Ok, done with the generic gripes, lets get to the October Nerd Block Jr gripes.
DreamWorks Dragons Book ($5.88) This is my fave item in this box, because it’s a book 🙂 I also LOVE this movie. LOVE IT. Ok, this box isn’t about me. Boys will love it too. It’s a short graphic novel – peek at it below. It’s also pre-release so I think that’s cool.
Super Mario Mini Figure ($7.99) Luigi. Meh. OMG I am terrible. But this is not my favorite.
Ninja Turtle Keychain ($8) This is fun because you can clip it on your backpack, etc!
Funny enough, I think for our purposes we prefer the larger Nerd Block. We get the shirt and it seems more stuff that my kiddo likes – he’s really into the Funko Pop Figurines and blind box items!
The Description: Amonthly mystery package delivered right to your door filled with nerdy apparel, toys, and collectibles! Every Nerd Block comes with a custom t-shirt (Has men’s regular, fitted, and women’s fitted tees – and now youth sizes!) and 5-6 epic items for you to tear into! Also available – Nerd Block Jr (Girl & Boy), Horror Block, and Arcade Block!
The Price: $20 per month for Jr, $30 for big ones.
