Nerd Block Jr. Girls Unboxing July 2014

Sorry I’ve been kinda MIA lately. Trying to keep up with my brother was a lot more taxing than I’d realized. However, I had a fantastic time and a fantastic visit. So, now that he’s back in Vancouver I’m all set to get back to blog life.

And with that, I bring you a brand new video!!!

Here’s a bit more info on Nerd Block in case you were interested in getting one yourself:

Nerd Block is a nerdy subscription box service similar to Loot Crate which I had previously reviewed here, except that Nerd Block has 4 different box “types” that you can choose from. There’s the Nerd Block classic for $19.99 , which is your basic box of toys & t-shirts a la Loot Crate. They also offer Nerd Block Jr. in boys or girls flavours for $13.99. These ones don’t come with t-shirts, but do seem to include craft items and books as well as the toys and action figures. Finally, Nerd Block also offers a Horror Block for all you fellow horror aficionados.

The Nerd Block site is very easy to navigate and canceling your Nerd Block is as easy as sending an email to their cancellations department, instructions which are clearly stated in their FAQ, unlike Loot Crate who seem to make their cancellation process as obscure as possible.

I also like that Nerd Block has distribution centers all over the world, which means that I got my box here in Canada at the same time as everyone else in the US or Europe. No waiting around like a looser watching everyone else’s unboxing videos for me.

      Thanks, Fiona! Hopefully I’ll get to the horror block soon, but I already totally endorse the service. Shipping is fast & customer service is pretty reliable so far.

    A new video! yay! I love them 🙂 Oh here you have two great goodies, the tiny hello kitty block and the gunther (ish?) penguin! I think a little kid would be very excited with these boxes, at least I am 😉 – btw Juno whisperer strikes back as soon as she heard “Hi it’s Mariko”

      Thanks, Damaris. That’s so funny about Juno. My cats could care less when they hear me talking to the camera.

      He’s still living at my desk, making me smile. Also, if I get anxious he makes a great stress ball!

      They actually ship to Europe (I think they have a European shipping center), although I’m not sure how much it costs.

    This box is so cute! I like that they have age appropriate based boxes too, and it’s uber neat that there’s a horror box! I like that it got it’s own box!

      I’m very excited to try that one next. But this month I’m expecting a boy’s box, finally.

    Penny for your thoughts...
