Teeblox: October 2015

Now that I’m recovered from the Thanksgiving holiday it’s time to get back to boxes. Today I’ve got something fun and whimsical. The folks at Teeblox graciously sent me a box to review. Their sub features a licensed geek/gamer tee along with some other extras for only $9.99. As far as sub boxes go that’s a great bargain.

The way it works is first you select your Tshirt theme. Your options are: Games, Movies & TV Shows, Beers and Liquors, and Hot Meex (which I assume is a little bit of everything). After that, you select your size. The range is from small to 2X and the shirts are unisex style.

For this sub I let my boyfriend choose the options and he went with a “Large” in the ”Games” category.

Verdict: Love!
Remember the good old days when controllers were simple and you didn’t have to remember to hold like 8 different buttons just to make your character move forward? In any case, I loved the design of this tee and I thought it was very nice quality. Totally worth the $9.99. A similar shirt is on Amazon is on sale for $15.40 to $19.99 so we definitely got our moneys worth. My boyfriend did think the shirt ran a touch small, so consider sizing up.

The other gear included:

Verdict: What you talkin’ bout Willis?
This had to be some freebie out in a dusty box in the back shelf of a warehouse somewhere. I have absolutely no recollection of this movie and I doubt most folks would be such big fans they want to stick this on their wall. The reverse side is white so I’m thinking that I can get crafty with this paper. It’s either that or toss it. This one seemed really unnecessary and I think the box would be better without it.

Stickers & A Pin!Stickers
Verdict: Gift
I don’t really have a use for gaming stickers, so I’m just going to pass this along to my friends with kids. They’ll have fun with them.

Hyperion Supreme Hyperion Versus Nighthawk ComicComic Book
Verdict: Almost…
I love the inclusion of a comic book, my problem with this is that it’s number 3 of 4 in the series. You have to go out and buy 1 and 2 if you want to understand the story. If this was the first in a series, it would definitely be a win.

Verdict:
Hit!

This sub is about the tshirt, everything else is really just silly little extras. So it all comes down to whether the tshirt is worth the 9.99 and I think it is. The quality is there, the design is fun and it’s not super easy to find a comparable product for that pricepoint. I would have easily grabbed the Nintendo tee in a store if I’d seen it for under $10. If you have someone in your life who likes to have fun with their shirts this could be a great gift. It would work really well for that high school teen or college student that you just have no idea what to get.

Do you wear graphic tees? If so, what’s your fave?

After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon.
