May 2014 Loot Crate Review

I was pretty excited to get this little black box in the mail. This is the very first time I’ve ever signed up for a monthly box of goodies, and Loot Crate sounded like it was right up my alley.


I have signed up for the three month subscription. I didn’t want to commit to it if I didn’t like it so I opted for the 3 month subscription rather than the year subscription. Also, I used coupons to get my subscription even cheaper! Don’t worry though, you can sign up for a one month subscription if you want to give it a go. If you want to try it out, you can follow my link:

This month’s theme was adventure. I actually made a video of myself opening the box!

After opening the box and doing some research, I took pictures and have put together this little rundown for you. Some of these items are/will be unique to Loot Crate and not sold anywhere else so the prices are my own estimates to just give you an idea of what you’re getting from Loot Crate each month.

  • Unique Link T-Shirt
    • Value: $15
  • Adventure Time Finn Tin with Zombie Finn
    • Value: $8
  • Minecraft Skeleton Hanger & Loot Crate May Adventure Pin
    • Hanger Value: $5.99
    • Pin Value: $1.99
  • Legend of Zelda Keychain & Bottle Opener
    • “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.”
    • Value: $5
  • The Friend Zone Soundtrack
    • Value: $5
  • Stickers and Temporary Tattoos
  • Total Value: $4

In all, my May Loot Crate is valued at about $45. Like I said before, I guessed at some of the items prices so this may not be the same for you; each crate has similar items though. The value, about $45, versus the advertised $13.37 plus shipping per month is not bad at all! So overall, pretty awesome value for May’s Loot Crate.

Review: I was honestly disappointed with this month’s first box. Most of the items I received I was not interested in but others may have really enjoyed. However, I love, love, love the Link shirt. It’s probably my favorite thing from this month’s box.

I don’t watch Adventure Time; just not a fan, but the tin is kind of cute. The little 3 inch Minecraft Skeleton hanger is cool. I’ve hung it up in my room for the time being, but it’s not exactly something I care about. The small button pin is basically a token from this month’s crate. For me, it’s just a reminder of what month this box is from, even though the artwork is nice.

The Legend of Zelda key chain/bottle opener is already on my key chain. It has a nice weight, and I’ll find a reason to use it. The CD of The Friend Zone’s soundtrack surprised me. It’s like video game music which is pretty awesome, but I didn’t know where it came from. After a little research, I found their YouTube channel which is pretty cool. They do a lot of geeky things like playing games and dressing up. Finally, the stickers and tattoos… I don’t see myself using these but I really like the artwork. It’s a little too childish for me.

Bottom Line: Overall, everything was “okay,” just not things I liked. I’m ready for June’s Loot Crate already!
