This month we got two Nerd Blocks to celebrate Preston’s 7th birthday. I love Nerd Blocks for their unique gifts that make shopping a little easier on this really busy Momma! I got some great gifts for Preston’s 7th birthday that I know he is going to love. So let’s get busy and check out all the great stuff we got in September’s Classic and Junior Boy Nerd Blocks!

So first up let’s take a look at the Classic Block. I switch regularly between the Classic and Arcade blocks. Usually I prefer the items in the Classic block, but it’s fun to change it up sometimes and I love that I can do this as much as I want with Nerd Block with no penalty.
First up… BB-8 plushie! As you probably know we got our Sphero BB-8 last month and have so much fun playing with him. Now Preston will have a plushie BB-8 too and he is so cute!
Supernatural vinyl figure – We got a common one and even though we have seen every episode of Supernatural we can’t figure out who this character is supposed to be. Any ideas?
Star Trek Dashboard Toy – My boys love playing with this as a fidget toy while homeschooling. We may put it in the rally car at some point. It’s cute and fun to play with.
Jurassic Galaxy Poster – My boys love this poster and it is now on display. I’m tempted to do a little modifying to it as part of a STEM project. Stay tuned!
Battlestar Galactica T-Shirt – I get the t-shirts in youth sizes. They always seem to need new shirts and this is a great way to add to their collection. Plus the boys always think the designs are cool.
So that was the Classic Block this month. Overall a nice block the winner was definitely the BB-8! Next month they are promising 2 vinyl figures in the Classic block, I’m looking forward to that.
Next up we also tried the Junior Boy Block this month as a special birthday treat for Preston. We have never done the Junior blocks before so this was new for us and I have to say I was really impressed with the block. Junior blocks are a little smaller, but they are also cheaper.
First up we got a Ty Beanie of Mikey from Monsters Inc. Preston is a big fan of Monsters Inc. and I know he is going to love this! On a side note, anyone else a former beanie baby collector? No? Ok, then I definitely didn’t do that either….
Next up! I’m not entirely sure what this is. It’s ElektroKidz and apparently it’s hair dances and moves to the beat of music. I haven’t unboxed it as it is going into Preston’s birthday package, but it seems silly enough to be something he will probably get a real kick out of.
Transformer – Always fun and great for taking on the road when we travel as a little something for the kids to do.
Batman Temporary Tattoos – I know Preston will have lots of fun putting these on. What kid doesn’t love temporary tattoos and being Batman will definitely be a hit with my Batman loving kid.
Book – The Squicker Wonkers by Evangeline Lilly – We are big readers around here, so any book is always exciting. I can’t wait to read this one myself.
Overall I was really impressed with the Junior Block. All the items are things I know Preston will enjoy and I’m so glad we grabbed one as part of his birthday present.
One of the things I love about Nerd Block is that it gives me lots of great presents and stocking stuffers for Christmas. All without any work or time on my part. Something I never seem to have enough of! So starting next month I am going to secret away the Nerd Blocks so I can use them for Christmas. I love making Christmas present shopping as easy and stress free as possible!
