Powered Geek Box

September’s box that was sent to me for review purposes was the Deluxe box.

Powered Geek Box

Call of Duty T-shirt (Retail $10?) – I’m not a gamer, so this shirt is a miss for me, but I do like the design.

Powered Geek Box

Super Mario Bros. Wallet (Retail $18.38 on Amazon) – This is a cute bifold wallet that my nephew will love.

Superman Crew Socks (Retail $8.65 on Amazon) – These are large, crew socks and seemingly well-made. These don’t seem to fit the gaming/pixel theme, but are probably my favorite thing in the box this month.

Powered Geek Box

MugBoy GameBoy Coaster (Retail $?) – I couldn’t find this listed on Amazon. But it’s a large, rubber coaster. At first, I thought it was a large magnet by the weight and feel. It’s a clever, cute design, looking like a retro GameBoy. However, I’d recommend only wide cups or mugs used on this, as there is a bit of texture to it.

Twisted Lip Pops (Retail $5?) – This is filler, but my niece is a candy fiend and will love it.

Nintendo Keychain (Retail $8.53) – Again, fans of classic gaming will may enjoy this large, rubber Nintendo key chain, made to look like an old controller. See, even though I never played as a teen, I recognize this stuff!

Summary: While the theme was a bust for me, as I’m not (nor ever have been) into gaming, the value is definitely here for the right audience. I look forward to seeing what this new branding may bring. I’m hoping for a more definitive theme, and one that’s announced on the updated website each month.

What do you think of this month’s box?
