It’s a great month for the boys. They are huge fans of almost everything in the picture. We are unfamiliar with Bit.Trip. T, age 17, has added his thoughts to the review.

T – First up is a Sonic the Hedgehog drinking cup ($9.99). It’s to celebrate Sonic turning 25 and has an old-style Sonic winking.

A- J, age 7, could not wait for me to take pictures. He loves Sonic and watches Sonic Underground. I have the theme song stuck in my mind.

T – Next is the bit.trip. I honestly don’t know much about. Never heard of it before.

A – The BiT.Trip Collection Videogame ($49.99) works on PC and Mac. There is a Steam code on the information card that I cropped out.  The DVD includes 6 games and the soundtrack. It’s great that Arcade Block added a game this month.

Mushroom and Pipe Shakers

T – OH. MY. GOSH. This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! The “pipe” is one of Mario’s main ways of getting around, and the mushroom is a power up that enables Mario to grow and take more hits.

A – The Super Salt & Pepper shakers are handwash or can be placed in the top rack of the dishwasher. I am placing the value to be $20.00 based on other Super Mario Salt and Pepper Shakers. It’s really cute. I think T is going to display it in his room.

T- The Hyrulian Treasure Chest ($5.00?) is designed after the treasure chests from Zelda games. Link comes across them on his adventures and often they contain Rupees, the games currency. Here’s another rupee for me to add to my collection.

A – T better check J’s room for the treasure chest! What a fun way to celebrate the release of Hyrule Warriors: Legends released on 3/5/16.

T – This Map of Hyrule is from Twilight Princess HD for the WiiU released on March 4, 2016. Great timing, because I received the game for my birthday. I love the Legend of Zelda Maps.

A- The tea towels are huge! T can’t decide whether to use the towels or display them. Arcade Block sent two towels, so my vote is to use one and display one. I do think J took one for his room. He is eager to start his gaming collection and wants to follow in his brother’s footsteps.

T – The Pokemon shirt, 1 of 3 possible shirts, features one of the three starting Pokemon from the original Pokemon games. It took me a minute at first to see them, but they’re in the first shadow, then the green, and the farthest shadow. Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur are shown.

A- I lived through about 10 years of Pokemon with the boys, and the little one is only 7! Happy 20th Anniversary Pokemon! The Evolution t-shirt by Shirt Punch ($10.00?)  is soft and made out of 100% cotton. Shirt Punch creates awesome shirts!

The February 2016 Arcade Block was a big hit with the boys. They love Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, Sonic, and. of course Mario. It’s great to see a game included too on CD and Steam. T’s favorite items are the Legend of Zelda items. J’s favorite item is the Sonic the Hedgehog cup. We had a blast unboxing the items and talking about the different games. It was a lot of fun!

    Nice review thank you. 🙂 Once again, this was a much nicer Arcade Block than I ever received before I cancelled my subscription lol. That’s ok. Ya win on some boxes and lose on some. I think this was a pretty fantastic box.

      Thank you for the compliment. I hear you! I cancelled a sub before only to have them send out an amazing box the following month.

    The arcade box is so well curated. The salt and pepper shakers are too cute. And those tea towels is amazing.
