Subscription boxes. They are everywhere these days. There are boxes that cater to your taste in food, writing implements, tea, engineering for kids, craft projects, wine, superheroes, and your own style of geek. But what if your favorite fandom is a little more specific?
The new TMNT Box is a monthly subscription box filled with all kinds of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles items. Mystery figures, t-shirts, costume accessories, action figures, Funko vinyls, and other goodies are carefully packaged in a TMNT-themed box and then shipped to your door.
How does it work? Go to the TMNT Box website and click Get Started or Give a Gift. Choose between Classic TMNT or the Combo box, which has both classic and modern styles. Then choose the t-shirt size of the intended recipient, and what subscription term you’d like. You can pick 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months, with significant discounts available for longer terms.
What do you get? Well, in the sample box that we received, we got a fun Splinter t-shirt, a large Funko Foot Soldier, a small mystery vinyl figure (which turned out to be a small, emergency, back-up Foot Soldier), a water-squirting Raphael, and a shiny card encouraging us to use the hashtag #TMNTBOX for a chance to win a mega crate of goodies. Even for the one-month price, there is definitely a good value for what we received, with an even bigger value for the discounted, longer subscriptions. A nerdy t-shirt alone can cost the entire price of the box including shipping, so I think their estimate that the value of the contents is about twice the asking price is pretty accurate. And if you receive something that isn’t your favorite, hey, instant gift idea!
The products included in the box are of high quality, made by reputable companies. In the box we received, there were items from Funko, Nickelodeon, and Playmates, and the t-shirt was very sturdy. Every month will have a different selection of goodies, but if you love all things Turtles, it will be like a care package to feed your soul.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TMNT Box costs $19.95 (plus shipping) for the month to month option, and it goes up to $191.40 (plus shipping) for the 12 month subscription. Each one is chock full of several TMNT goodies, and they will ship to a variety of countries. If you love the Turtles, this subscription box will bring a joyful anticipation whenever you visit the mailbox.
Note: I received a box for review purposes.
