The October theme is Horror. The information card shows the items and variations. It also describes how to enter the epic giveaway!
It’s all about horror in October! Horror that is not too scary for a certain eight-year-old.
Here are the items in the October 1Up Box. T (age 17) was more excited about the box than J (age 8).
T (age 17): We received a Jack Skellington Dorbz ($9.95)! Jack is the main protagonist in the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Jack Skellington was one of the two Dorbz you can receive in the box, the other being Oogie Boogie.
PA Anna: Jack looks happy next to the white pumpkin. J (age 8) and I are going to put him on display for Halloween.
PA Anna: I remember watching the movie with T when he was younger. We love this song from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
T: A glow in the dark Boo sticker. Boo is a character from the Super Mario Bros series. He is one of my personal favorites after Donkey Kong and Yoshi so I’m happy to receive any Boo item!
J: I like that he glows in the dark.
T: Inky, the ultimate Pac-Man troll, is here as a bottle opener! He is my favorite ghost because he’s blue 😀 But every time I get past the 4th board I end up dying thanks to this guy.
PA Anna: I love receiving Pac-Man items. T is going to use him to open up pumpkin soda.
T: Walking Dead bracelet. I see the show logo, a crossbow of sorts, a bloody hand print, a zombie, a knife, and a gun. I haven’t watched this series myself, but I hear it’s good if you’re a zombie fan.
PA Anna: The Exclusive Zombie Tile Bracelet is perfect for a Walking Dead fan if you are still a fan after watching the premiere. Two deaths! It’s a great adult item for the family-friendly box.
T and J: The pin is awful. It looks like a kitten that someone threw away.
T: This is quite the shirt. Poor Clyde (Orange) is caught in a web with Boo, who has his mouth webbed shut. Jack Skellington is looking off into the distance. Daryl Dixon is scaling up the web to free boo.
J: I liked it because it looks scary but not too scary.
PA Anna; Somebody does not want to get a haircut. J is wearing a youth size small over another shirt because the autumn chill has arrived.
The boys love 1 Up Box. 1 Up hit the right amount of horror for my eight-year-old while keeping it interesting for my 17-year-old. T’s favorite item is the Jack Skellington Dorbz and plans to display it after Halloween. J’s favorite is the Boo glow in the dark sticker. 1Up Box is a wonderful family geek/gamer box that can also be enjoyed by older fans.
