Owlcrate Jr May 2017 Unboxing

Owlcrate Jr May 2017 Unboxing and Review below! 🙂

Owlcrate Jr is a monthly subscription box suitable for boys and girls aged 8-12*.

This month’s box was themed On the Case, and it came with a bunch of detective inspired goodies!

* Also suitable for adults who are a kids at heart.


The book selection was The World’s Greatest Detective by Caroline Carlson. This Middle Grade novel came with a detective card, letter and signature from the author!  Value: $16.99 ($9.65 on Amazon).

A classic disguise! Haha, I have always wanted to get one of these! If I didn’t have to wear my reading glasses, I would use these while reading the book. Value: $2.95


A super fun book with secret codes. I also would have loved this as a kid. It comes with different secret messages and clues on how to decode them! I already went through some of them and they’re quite easy but require reading comprehension, so this would be perfect for kids 8 to 12. Value: $6.72

The box also included a magnifier bookmark that is perfect for the secret codes book! It really works as a magnifier and it’s so cute!  Value: $3.00

And of course, the most important item to carry all the other detective goodies: A TOP SECRET totebag. Isn’t this box the perfect care package for a detective in the making? Value: $???

And finally: a super cute info card as always! They also included this collectible button inspired by the card 😀  Value: Free

This is the funnest book box I have received! I love that it comes with a magnifier and those fun glasses, because as a kid I would have used them to pretend I was a real detective. I also really liked the activity book. And the tote bag was the cherry on top! Everything fits perfectly with the theme and can be used to play, which is a big plus. I bet a lot of kids will be inspired to be detectives after getting this box 😉

An Owlcrate Jr box is $27.99 + shipping. You can use my discount code GEEKERY15 to get 15% off your first box 🙂

According to my calculations, the value of the May box was *at least* $29.66 (that would be without counting the tote bag because I didn’t know its price).

I received this box from Owlcrate Jr in exchange for an unboxing. All opinions are my own!

Next month’s theme is:

Gizmos and Gears“.


Which one was your favorite item? I think mine was the magnifier bookmark 😀
