I have been subscribed for the last 2 months, and I am about to receive my third box soon. I originally signed up for myself and my 5 year old niece. She and I share a hobby of collecting Nintendo merch, and playing the games. So, for that purpose this box is great! The first months box was a bit bigger than the second, but I suppose that's to be expected, as each months theme varies, and the items values change as well. That being said, in my experience so far, the items definitely justify the monthly subscription price, as far as an itemized breakdown of cost per piece. The only con I've experienced so far, and maybe its just my opinion, but I've noticed several items in the second box I recieved, which was an "original gameboy" theme, had a couple items that were custom, a gameboy t-shirt, and a wooden laser cut gameboy pin. Both items are cool, but instead of the shirt reading "gameboy" or something relevant, it just said "Mario's Mystery Block"..... same with the pin....I understand marketing, but I didn't subscribe to promote your company, I subscribed for Nintendo based items and clothing etc. If you want to throw in a business card or sticker, for the purpose of me possibly displaying it somewhere, fine. But do not use two of the items I paid for, as a giant promotion. Especially since that was the first shirt I received, and now have no desire to wear it. Overall I would recommend this box, and I think it's a lot of fun, and my niece is always excited to see it arrive. So I will continue to subscribe for now, and hope they stop sending me stuff with their logo on it. haha
This was one of the best "Nintendo" boxes I've gotten.Each month is a different theme,last months was original NES and everything was themed around that I got everything from a tshirt to an amazing handmade soap that looked like the controller of an NES and smelled amazing...very impressed with this box...just a note the tshirts are made large
Due to Cratejoys's interface, I was expecting to choose which character I got for my mystery box. This is not the case, it is a themed box. After contacting the seller, they were able to ship out a special box with the items I wanted. I would recommend going to the seller's website, instead of through Cratejoy. They are fantastic and made everything right!
