Q: What decades does this box cover and if I ask for a certain device charger can I get it?Asked by Rylee F., September 2019
It covers the 90s to today. We deal more in toys than electronics, and we can't guarantee specific things will be included, sorry.

Q: All I have got was comics that's it.Asked by Phil R., June 2019
Great crate! Keep it up! 😎👌🏼
I just want to thank you for my last two boxes they have been very awesome but due to financial reasons I have to cancel for a couple months but look forward to signing up again soon
I've been subscribed for close to a year now and every month is getting better and better.
I've subscribed to other geek boxes in the past that left me disappointed with the variability of the themes. This box is very consistent. The point system is perfect for keeping everything inline with my interests.
I also remember emailing them early on with a detailed list of stuff from the early to mid 90's that i liked and didn't like. They have a really good team that has never given me something that i explicitly didn't want (like furby or beanie babies or polly pockets). Every box so far has had at least something I really liked from one of the franchises i was really into as a kid (like mighty max, tmnt, marvel, nba or pokemon)
I recently found out I grew up living next door to the headquarters of the Ty Beanie Baby corporation so I might email the nostalgia crate team soon with a new appreciation for beanie babies. lol I don't know.
anyway, this is a good team that wants to please and makes a box that's worth keeping.
a few things i've gotten over the last 10-11 months that were really special to me were; a donatello pizza chucker action figure that i remember swallowing all the plastic pizzas to back when i was a kid, a xenomorph alien with tail whip action that i wasn't allowed to have because it was too scary, a spiderman that i always...
I loved the suspense and wait of receiving my first crate. It did not disappoint!
Lots of toys I remembered as a kid. I enjoyed opening and discovering all the treasures inside! I can't wait to see what's in next month's crate!!!
fun to see what you'll get
I got my crate not knowing what to expect and I was surprised I absolutely love the toys that I got and other stuff that was included my inner child thanks you very much for this
I really enjoyed myfirst box -- had a nice mix of items that I included in my survey. I'm trying to figure out how to upgrade my subscription to a larger box -- if I figure out how to do that I will definitely upgrade!
This is my favorite Nostalgia themed subscription box. Not only do my husband and I love it, but our children are obsessed with it as well. They really do cater to your likes. For instance, I made sure to let them know how much we really love 90's Nickelodeon shows and Disney and thats exactly what we got in our boxes. We received Goosebumps books Wishbone, Ghostbusters, Garfield and many more of our favorite items. The cards are awesome! They sent me Beauty and the Beast cards in my first box without me specifying that it happened to be my favorite Disney movie. A great coincidence, I guess, but extremely fun to find! I can attest to the value of the box being much more than what you pay. It's a steal if you ask me. They even lay it all out for you and give you a run down of prices on the items in your box at the time of shipment. I was quite surprised with the price of some of these items, and even more surprised that they had went well over the price of the box quite a few times. Customer service is great as well.
Into retro toys? Like to receive cool surprises in the mail? Try this service. It's worth it!
H'okay, so, I just want to say how much I loved my package from Nostalgia crate. I was disappointed to learn that they were cancelling out the video game crate, but I understand the reasoning and I'm still TOTALLY satisfied with my purchase.
I received two NES cartridges, Top Gun & Top Gun: The Second Mission. This is cool for a number of reasons:
A) Top Gun.
B) Set of cartridges, in sequence (And from what I can tell Nostalgia Crate likes to do things in sets. I appreciate it, frankly.)
C) They are in darn near perfect condition.
Previous complaints had me a little worried, but even if the video game crates are discontinued, I will 100% be signing up for future crates from Nostalgia.
I will also say that when I saw my subscription to the video game crate cancelled, I sent them a message in regards to it. They responded within 9 hours.
I could not be happier with the contents of this crate, the sellers, or the condition of the items received. I look forward to buying from them in the future.
