Mine Chest September 2018 Subscription Box Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Mine Chest is the one and only official subscription box for Minecraft fans! It is licensed by Mojang. This box is a $23 bimonthly box + $7 US shipping. Every chest is filled with exclusive Minecraft goodies, including a full-color T-shirt, collectibles, toys, and more. The exterior of the box usually looks like a Minecraft chest, while the inside looks like a block relating to the current month’s theme.

This subscription has returned after a long hiatus! Read more about the subscription update here.

You’ll get a box full of Minecraft inspired goodies and official merchandise. Boxes come with a t-shirt (with a full range of youth and adult sizes available) and are packed in a collectible and reusable box.

When inverted, the box transforms into a yellow block! Every month has a different block pattern that fits the theme of the box. We like the look of the boxes so much that we can’t stand to part with them, so we have a two block wide tower of them up to the ceiling in the kids’ room!

Poster. This month includes an exclusive poster from Minecraft: The Journey Continues! The posters are designed to match up, so you have to save them all.

It’s an action-packed scenery from Minecraft world. The upper part of the poster shows a yellow and red-suited rocket flyers, with the other one falling apart…

…while on the lower part reveals an underwater tunnel with webs, lava, and creepy creatures.

Written at the back of the poster is a description about Alex’s adventures on his journey underwater.

The Journey Continues! is the ninth episode of the third mission from Minecraft Destination.

The message on the poster is quite long but super informative.

Everything in the September box!

Minecraft Pin. This month’s Minecraft exclusive pin is a Metallic Dolphin!

This dolphin-themed pin features metallic edging that shines brightly when lit.

One of the characters you’ll encounter in getting the Mine Chest on this mission is a dolphin. He’ll be your underwater guide and guard to ensure your safety along your journey!

T-Shirt. This exclusive shirt from Minecraft is made from 50% cotton and 50% Polyester.

It’s a blue colored shirt with huge X-shaped design that features Alex’s almost getting the underwater minechest.

Patch. This next item is a square-shaped, blue patch that features a puffer fish. It’s so cute!

Stickers. The sticker sheet included in this month’s box highlights some sea creatures(puffer fish, dolphins, salmon and other colorful small fishes), underworld creature, and a boat.

Here’s a closer look, It’s pixelated as usual.

Plush Hanger. This exclusive plush toy from Minecraft – The Journey Continues! features the cute head of Alex’s new turtle friend!

Look, even the turtle’s nose-holes are cube-shaped. Lol!

So are its eyes!

The plush toy is so soft and very detailed. Another great addition for my plush collection, I really love it!

Minechest brought another great curation of exclusive and exciting items for my kids to play with! We definitely love all the goods included in this month’s box. The picture in the poster is action-packed and the kids really had fun adding stickers on it. What stands out the most this month is the tee and plush toy, they’re both so soft and look really cute. There is so much to do and explore in Minecraft (and it is constantly expanding – are you excited about TAIGA? We are!!!), so I’m sure there is always something new to see in each box. All in all, It’s really a fantastic subscription box. We do wish, however, that they’d deepen their partnership with Mojang. We kind of expected MineCon Earth goodies from this month – like a MineCon Earth tee, panda pin, etc. Oh well – maybe the next box!

What do you think of this month’s Mine Chest?
