Guest Post Review: Geek Fuel
May 27, 2015
Hi everyone! This week we are reviewing two boxes for you to check out. Both of these are geared more toward tweens and teens. We have Geek Fuel up first and then we will have iBBeautiful. We hope that between these two subs we have your tween/teen boys and girls covered. Up first – Geek Fuel!
Geek Fuel is a geek and gamer box that is relatively new that is geared toward 9-14 year olds. Their first box came out in December and they’ve become very popular, very quickly.
A monthly sub is $17.90, $16.90 per month for a 3 month subscription, $15.90 per month for a 6 month subscription and $13.90 per month for a yearly subscription.
Geek Fuel ships to the US ($6.00 shipping fee), Canada, and other countries.
What do you get?
Every box will have a t-shirt, toy/collectible, game download and more. Geek Fuel kindly sent us this box for review purposes.
A t-shirt is included in every box. This is a very high quality t-shirt. It appears to be an exclusive for Geek Fuel and is a fun print. This shirt is a mash-up of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Avengers which has the turtles as Iron Man, Hawk, Thor and Captain America while April is Black Widow.
There were some Jelly Belly beans and two boxes of candy sticks included. We’re not sure if there is candy in every box, but a treat is always a welcome addition! The jelly beans were delicious and the candy sticks remind us of the candy cigarettes we used to have when we were younger (which would be *SOOOO* not politically correct these days, so now we have “sticks”). The Scribblenauts Unmasked Mystery Box character is adorable and we received Green Arrow who is a super hot hero right now. He is listed as ?/18 so he may be a rare one!
Breakstuff Club Coffee Mug – This is a very nice quality mug and we’ve run it through our dishwasher several times and there is no color or graphic loss. This also appears to be exclusive to Geek Fuel and is great for younger or older fans (remember Breakfast Club parents?) Avengers characters are represented by school lockers and the mash-up includes Loki (as the Princess), Incredible Hulk (as the Basket Case), Iron Man (as the Brain), Captain American (as the Athlete) and Spiderman (as the Criminal).
Also included: a Kingdom Wars Battles downloadable game code and sticker sheet. The game download is worth $20. Very cool that a game download is included in every box – this pays for the price of the box in itself. No other gamer boxes do this that we’re aware of.
The Geek Guide is included in every box and tells about the curation of the box. Plus you get a retro video game magazine which has great articles for geeks and gamers alike.
BOTTOM LINE: There are so many exclusive and neat items in the Geek Fuel subscription. We love that there is a t-shirt and downloadable game code in every box – those two items push the value for each box well beyond twice what you pay for it. The collectible figure is super cool! There is great value for your money here if you have a tween/teen who is into gamer/geek items! Or maybe even a grown-up who is 🙂
