Loot Crate Review and #Giveaway

        My husband is a hardcore gamer.  So much that he has turned both my boys into little gamers as well.  It used to drive me crazy, but I've quickly come around to the idea of it and all the benefits it actually has on the boys.  That being said, everyone in my family loves when we discover anything new and game related!  In an online search for something completely different, I discovered a brand called Loot Crate.

        "Loot Crate is the monthly gear and swag club for those that live and embrace the geek and gaming lifestyle."  Because I have quickly fallen in love with the monthly subscription trend, I was thrilled when Loot Crate asked me to review one of their monthly boxes.  I told Kevin about it right away and needless to say he was pretty psyched too!  We were very eager to see what would arrive in our "crate".

        Upon arrival, the boys readily awaited opening the box as I made them wait until their fellow gamer (Daddy) was home from work.  I thought it would be cute for them to all open it together to discover the goodies!  The April box theme was "DRAGONS".  Included were themed items from games/shows like Game of Thrones and Elder Scrolls.

        There were items like dragon jerky, a variety of dice, pins, and the boys favorite - two toy characters.  Each month you can expect 6-8 new items in your box ranging from toys and gear to snacks and even hardward.  Now the boys were more than happy with the toy ninja (no idea what this has to do with dragons) and the viking, but these were the only things of interest to any of the guys in my family.  I would have liked to find a bit more quality items or even game downloads or trials.

Available to purchase/Cost:  $13.37 + $6 S/H One Month Subscription.
Recommendation:  I think this is a bit pricey for the amount of products that arrived and the quality.  This is a lower priced monthly subscription so I understand the need for a smaller amount of products and the toys were not cheaply made toys.  However, I don't know that by choice I would have purchased the toys for nearly $20 in a normal circumstance.

  2. I personally like May's Loot Crate box best beings it has Game of Thrones items in it buuuuuuuuut if I had to choose for past I'd say January's. I like all the items in the box. I love Star Wars, grew up on Superman, watched Star Trek from time to time, enjoyed NASA and learning about space and I could never quite figure out the Rubik's cube. Haha.

  4. I'm more of a casual gamer myself, so I haven't heard of most of the games that the stuff in these boxes come from, but I do know Minecraft! So my favorite box would be the January one because it has the Minecraft calendar.

    Seriously though, it would be fun to get introduced to new games each month. Maybe it would turn me into more than just a casual gamer.

    I like that the boxes come with gaming collectables and I think January's box would have been a big hit with my husband. He loves any and all things Star Wars related. My son's would have loved the October 2013 box with all of the Zombie goodies since they are big fans of 'The Walking Dead' TV series.
