The Nick Box is a quarterly subscription service full of all things Nick nostalgia. Whether it be a plush of your favorite 90’s Nick character, apparel that allows you to cosplay them, or coasters in the shape of Rugrats, The Nick Box is full of fun, nostalgic, and sometimes useful items.
The Nick Box first debuted in the summer of 2016 and has created four fun-filled boxes since. Each box costs $49.99 plus $7 shipping. While it may not be the most affordable, it’s definitely worthwhile for us enthusiastic retro Nick fans. Another fun thing about it is every Nick Box is a mystery box. They tease you all month long about what may be inside it. But, you’ll never know until the box is delivered to your door. It’s like buying a Wonder Ball, you just don’t know what you’re going to get until you get it. I was eager to subscribe to The Nick Box the first time I saw it, but the Summer Block Party box is my first(but definitely not my last) Nick Box.
The boxes are said to ship during the middle or end of the month. The July box started shipping late July, but I didn’t receive my box until August 24th. Unfortunately, I was one of the unlucky few who had a delay in shipment due to my box getting broken during transit. However, The Nick Box graciously refunded me the $7 for shipping. It’s obvious that they’re a new company who’s trying to work out kinks in their processing and shipping department. Though the surprise was ruined from receiving my box later than others, I’m just grateful I received my box in one piece.
Inside The Box:
Upon opening the box, my first impression of it is that you definitely get your money’s worth. Inside the Summer Block Party box you will find a retro T.V bumper t-shirt, Spike plush, Hey Arnold tumbler, Hey Arnold bobblehead, TMNT ice cream vinyl, Gerald planter/vase, Spongebob hat & spatula, Conglom-o Koozie, AAAHH!!! Real Monsters chip clips and a decorative Nickelodeon mini bean bag toss.
All of these items are unique items that you aren’t bound to find anywhere else. However, as unique as they are, I do wish they would include more useful items that appeal to their target audience. I think it’s safe to say that most subscribers to the Nick Box are 90’s kids in their mid-twenties. Therefore, I think it would be a wonderful idea to include more items that we’re actually going to use. For instance, the Spongebob spatula and frying hat are cute, but kind of silly. Spongebob is definitely at the bottom of my list of Nick characters I’d like to cosplay. This item will most likely collect dust in my closet until I find a Spongebob obsessed five-year-old to give it to. However, I was very excited over the t-shirt, chip clips, and the Hey Arnold tumbler.
The next Nick Box comes out in the Fall. It’s called Treasure & Treats, so it’s a Halloween themed box that you don’t want to miss out on! Boxes are limited, so make sure to sign up today! We both get $10 off our box if you use my link. 😉
