I'm so glad I bought this reduced and buy 1 get 1 free, if I'd paid full price for the box I received it would have felt completely shafted!! I usually love subscription boxes and have HD some great ones from other companies but if this represents a normal ZBOX I will be staying far far away!!
CONTENT SPOILERS - I purchased four ZBOXES as gifts and was a little dubious to not have any control over the contents but still excited! I did my research and it seemed like the contents were high quality and would exceed the price payed for the box. When they arrived, first of all, I loved how sleek the boxes looked A really simple but smart looking gift which will appeal to a wide age range. So, the first box I opened, I was quite disappointed. There were only three items inside. A T-shirt, a book and a small comic. After having a very bad experience with the four geek boxes I ordered, I was pretty much expecting all the ZBOXES to have the same contents. I wasn't even going to open the rest at that point but when I picked another box up, I noticed how much heavier it was! Upon opening it, I realised that there were a lot more items in this box! There was, a dredd comic, T-shirt, robo cop keyring, bag of Lego, a dredd badge +stand +velvet pouch, candy whistle and a mini megaphone. All great quality. The third and fourth boxes were both Batman boxes and contained: T-shirt, build your own Batmobile, Batman playing cards (in a very sleek, black tin), retro Batman and Robin mini jigsaw in a tin, Batman kube plush, and a booklet. Overall, I am thrilled. ZBOX is definitely the way to go! Please also note: the t-shirts in the boxes are random sizes. I got a M, L, XL, XXL. But they are all of great quality!
An odd mixture of poor value items. None of much use. We received a Warcraft Durotan plush, a Heroes Godsend comic, a cat phone plug (???) and a Mosaikit Cat kit. Very random. Not happy at all, thought i might have got atleast one reasonable stocking filler.
Be very wary ordering one of these boxes as the items contained within really do seem to be the type of thing that you couldn't sell individually. I ordered this thinking it would be good for my son and honestly didn't expect that everything would be ideal, but I did hope that a couple of bits would be good as stocking fillers. Unfortunately, the box contained an extra large tshirt, a ninja turtles mug, and a mega bloks power ranger blind bag - don't you just know it'll be the pink one! In addition there's a Dr Who screaming Angel and an Aliens figure set. None of this is suitable, he doesn't know what Aliens is! and its non-returnable. Don't get me wrong a number of these items are at face value technically worth the price of the box, however, as a collection they are indeed completely random and I think the write up description of this is a little misleading. I have never written a poor review before, but genuinely feel that this purchase would be disappointing for a lot of people. It's not an expensive gamble, but ....
The boxes on here shown as examples are what I'd call geeky, and the description of the box would also suggest this, with 'zombies and the undead to retro games and pop culture' used in the blurb - clearly aiming towards an certain demographic. It also mentions that the box itself will give a clue as to the contents and that they are themed around it. I was very pleased then when the box for my teenage son's birthday showed up with images of Deadpool, Star Wars characters and The Joker on it. I was not impressed when he opened it to discover a soft toy Mike Wasowski from MU, a Disney Tsum Tsum, a Lion King metal plate, a Mickey Mouse comic book image (not a comic, just an image) and, best of all, a Minnie Mouse apron. Nowhere in the description or in the images on the site does it state that these boxes would be ideal for an 8 year old girl. Luckily he saw the funny side. I've given this two stars simply because in actual monetary value it's worth more than a tenner.
Order swiftly dispatched and arrived in good time (kudos for the packaging team: everything arrived in pristine condition, not even a dent on the box!) Our welcome box turned out to be the Batman one, and much fun was had in our geeky household trying to decide who gets which share of the loot. The kids won, of course... -_- Contents value definitely exceed even the full price of the box, not to mention the introductory one, so the good people of ZBOX now have one subscriber more. All told, absolutely worth the money spent.
