Review: Infinity Crate Subscription + Giveaway

Infinity Crate Geek Gear Subscription Box Review

About Infinity Crate Subscription Service

Infinity Crate is a monthly subscription service aimed at the “geek” market. They have a range of boxes including:

  • Classic Crate – Guaranteeing 1 T-Shirt and 1 Pop
  • Premium Crate – Guaranteeing 1 or perhaps 2 T-Shirts and Pops
  • Kids Crate – Guaranteeing a T-Shirt
  • T-Shirt Only Crate

In this review we will be reviewing February 2017’s Classic Infinity Crate which promises to tailor the large items to your interests, while the smaller items follow the monthly theme.

My Review of the Infinity Crate Subscription Service

I have a confession… I am a geek. I’m a fan of pretty much every major sci-fi and fantasy series, and a fair number of the less well known ones too. So when the opportunity arose to review Infinity Crate, a geek themed subscription service, I did what any self respecting thirty something woman would do and pretended that I was getting it for Grumpy Dad and Teen, while secretly planning to snaffle the best bits for myself.

For the purpose of this review I received the Classic Infinity crate which promises 1 T-Shirt and 1 Pop tailored to your interests, along with random items which fit the months theme. This months theme was Marvel and our chosen interest was StarWars.

I was a little surprised when the crate arrived as it was about the size of a shoe box. I had expected something much larger and couldn’t for the life of me imagine how they had managed to fit anything other than the pop and T-Shirt into such a small box. As it turns out the packers at Infinity Crate are Tetris grand masters who have no trouble slotting a surprising number of goodies onto a tiny space.

Inside the crate I found:

1x StarWars themed T-Shirt;
1x StarWars themed Pop;
1x Marvel Spider-Man mug;
1x Marvel Poker Cards and Chips;
1x Marvel Captain America apron;
2x A5 Prints.

From my point of view (as the one holding the purse strings) this was fairly impressive as the T-Shirt and Pop would have easily cost more to buy separately than the Infinity Crate subscription making it excellent value for money. I was also impressed that the Pop was from the newest StarWars movie and an interesting character. One of the unfortunate side effects of Grumpy Baby is that I have yet to see the Rogue One, so I allowed Grumpy Dad and Teen to fight over the Pop while I quickly pocketed the Spider-Man mug… You can never have too many mugs and this one was perfect biscuit dunking size.

The promised T-Shirt was ordered with Grumpy Dad in mind as Teen rarely wears anything that doesn’t have a designer label on it. The T-Shirt was of good quality and interesting design. Neither Grumpy Dad or I had seen the T-Shirt before which is good as he has quite a collection of StarWars themed T-shirts already. In fact, all of the items were interesting and good quality, the one notable exception to this was the Captain America apron which was a bit of a wild card and not up to the standard of the other items, but as everything else was so good I wrote this off as packaging material.

All in all I was very impressed with the Infinity Crate we received. The content value was around the £30 to £40 mark where as the subscription cost only £16.99 plus p&p, cheap enough to make it a fun monthly treat without braking the bank. There were plenty of items in the crate which were of an good quality and I love that Infinity Crate go the extra mile to tailor their crates to their customers, rather than sending out the same standard crate to everyone.

Both Grumpy Dad and Teen also agreed that they were happy with their haul, and by that I mean that Teen grunted slightly more enthusiastically than usual and Grumpy Dad didn’t look at his phone for a full 10 minutes. Personally I would be would be happy to receive this little mystery crate all to myself once a month. But for now, I will just have to settle for my shiny new mug.

  1. Ahhh my fave character when I was younger and one I’ve always loved is Ace from Doctor Who. She was his companion back when Sylvester McCoy played him (incidentally my fave Doctor too! 😀 ) Ace was tough and cool and I wanted to be her. Still do. Oh, the memories!

      1. Haha, likewise! I usually get a blank look if I mention Ace! 😀 She was amazing and so cool too. I’m craving a rewatch of all those episodes now 🙂

  2. Wolverine. Love the original character from the comic books and the new character (Hugh Jackman)in all the recent Movies. Looking forward to Logan a lot.

  3. Princess Leia or General Leia Organa to us! she is a real strong heroine who doesn’t let anyone define her, her relationships or her authority.
    as was Carrie Fisher an inspiring lady!

  4. You can’t beat a bit of super heroes, we like a whole host of charactors, mostly all of the Marvel ones, my favourite is Daredevil though, to be blind and still be able to kick the baddies buts is amazing.

  5. I have so many as I really love Sci-Fi. I’d love to see a Pop Vinyl of the Farscape crew especially Scorpius 😉

  6. We currently subscribe to Nerd Block, Loot Crate & My Geek Box so it would be fab to try out a new Geeky box ?

    Love your review. It’s great to hear that on the whole you were impressed and thought it was good value for money. Hope you enjoy your mug ?
