Nerd Block Junior for Girls (Unboxing)

Are you aware of the youtube trend of unboxing?  People post videos of themselves opening things? Well, when Nerd Block Junior sent us a couple of their monthly subscription boxes for kids, we thought it would be the perfect thing to make an unboxing video of ;)

This subscription box is for kids aged 6-11 (there's a girl version and a boy version).  You can buy a subscription for 3, 6, or 12 months (cost ranges from $11.19 to $12.59) or you can buy individual boxes for $13.99 each plus shipping.

I looked up some of the items in the January box and they are worth more than the cost of the box, so the box is "worth it" in that way. When I peeked at the box contents before giving them to the girls, I wasn't sure how I felt about it- I questioned whether I would want to order a box of random toys and trinkets (after all, don't we have enough of those things?)  But after watching the girls open the boxes and hearing their reactions, I can definitely see the appeal for kids (if not for their parents ;).

Here's a video of the girls opening January's box:



This is what was in the box:


And here's a video of them opening the February box:



Here's what was inside:


The girls have been busy with their little "gifts" ever since they opened the boxes and this morning Katrina told me that yesterday felt like Christmas :)  

I can see how this would be a fun gift to give to a child- and if you got a subscription, they would be so excited each month when their little package arrived!

The girls liked most of their items (though Talia thought the gum that came with her finger puppet was disgusting and my girls aren't really into Harry Potter and didn't know who Kirby was ;)  I know they made a fuss in the video about the colouring book smelling bad, but I sniffed it and don't know what they're talking about ;)
Have you ever ordered a monthly subscription box for your kids or yourself?
I'll be sharing another type of subscription box with you next week!

    1. So fun- I think the whole idea of a subscription box is a lot of fun- like getting a gift in the mail each month- and who doesn't love that?!
