– Every month Nerd Block sends you 5-6 “nerdy” products and a shirt in your size. This month’s guest curator was Mr. Bean and the theme was British Invasion. I sponsor the Anime Club at my school and my students voted that they would like to occasionally raffle off boxes that included anime collectables.
– Each month you will receive a postcard the outlines your products.
– First look at our package. Everything was in great condition. I was really excited to see a Doctor Who collectable because my students are big fans.
Item One: Mr. Bean Bendable
– Not sure this Mr. Bean Bendable is very “Anime” but I know my students will enjoy bending him.
Item Two: Mr. Bean Teddy
– Mr. Bean’s Teddy is actually quite cute. Whoever put this together did a great job, it is lovely and seems to be of good quality.
Item Three: Monty Python Magnets
– I have several students that would go absolutely nuts for these. I am thinking about asking them if we can keep these on our anime board. I can see the students having fun rearranging these magnets.
Item Four: Bored T-Shirt by shirtpunch.com
– I am not sure what to make of this t-shirt, partially because I have to wear it to work on our first Anime Club meeting day. The shirts itself is actually very soft and it is a reference that all Sherlock Holmes Fans would understand. Shirtpunch has some very awesome shirts for $10, if you have a chance go take a look. To eliminate size issues I made a deal with the club that the day we have the raffles I would wear the shirts, I wonder what my boss will think?
Item Five: Whovian Art Print
– This is an exclusive print for Nerd Block subscribers. Most of the prints are in blue but they included a few highly limited special editions in green for a few lucky recipients. We received the green, this is going to be a great raffle!!
Value: It is very hard to do a cost break down of these items due to their limited and exclusive nature, but it is very apparent that the items cost more than what you pay for the box. I am very impressed this month with Nerd Block.
