Booty Bin – “A Kid Again”

There are three nerdy subscription boxes. The Booty Bin is from Virgina. The cost is $24.00 plus $5.00 for shipping. They include 7-10 items in their boxes. They ship on the 1st of every month and you have to be signed up by the 20th to get the box for the month. Each month they choose a theme. January was “A Kid Again.”

All the items in the box had to do with being a kid or reliving your childhood.


They included temporary Marval Avengers tattoes and three sheets of cool stickers. I am probably going to stick them to my coffee table. We’re trying to redecorate the scuffed surface by covering it with stickers. I especially like the mustach stickers.

This little block is a magic towel! It’s super compressed but is about the size of a hand towel. The design looks like Spider Man in this case, I haven’t opened it yet.


I swear they must have had a meeting with Nerd Block because they included this growing Zombie. The Nerd Block included a Zombie Wall crawler with sling shot.


Dog tags are the cool thing right now. Actually they were when I was a kid in the 80’s too. These three are plastic, but very cute and I will probably attach them to my Emerald City Comic Con badge. 🙂 YAY SCHWAG!


Childhood wouldn’t be complete without CANDY! I loved push pops when I was a kid. Back then they only had grape and cherry flavor. This one is watermelon. I find this ironic because I was just telling my assistant how they make artifical watermelon. I remembered reading some where it was made from a hormornal secretion from the anus of a beaver but now I don’t find that anywhere on the internet. Damn you Cracked! I swear it was an article I read on their website. I’m going to eat the darn thing anyway. I haven’t had one in years.


The best thing in the box where two Hex Bug Nano’s. These are version one of the Hex Bug Nano. They are a small robotic insect. There is a little motor inside that vibrates. The vibration shakes it enough that it moves but it only works on hard surfaces. I played with these for a long time. The company that makes them is pretty awesome. They are also Decepticons! The but is shaped just like the Decepticon logo! These glow in the dark so you can find them.

The night we got our Booty Bin we also had a few kids around. They went nuts for these Nanos. I can honestly say, Kid tested, Nerd Approved!



The Booty Bin is a winner. The price point is a little higher but I am going to get it for at least another month. I really want to see what else they come up with.
