April Valor Blocks Review

Valor Blocks is the newest addition to the Nerd Block family and it features officially licensed items from the U.S. military. The U.S. Army Valor Block is currently the only option available, but they have ones for the Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force coming soon.

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Each month you'll receive four to six collectibles plus an exclusive t-shirt, all of which are officially licensed by the U.S. Army. Boxes are $34 per month with $6 shipping to the continental U.S. and military bases worldwide. Active duty military and veterans receive a 10% discount.

April's Valor Block featured four items and the exclusive t-shirt. The t-shirt I received is different than the one pictured on the info card, so I'm not sure if this is the same shirt everyone will receive or not.

  • U.S. Army Est 1775 T-Shirt: The shirt on the info card is black with a gray design and text that says "United States Army Est 1775," but as you can see I received a black t-shirt with a snake that says "This We'll Defend." I like the design regardless, but again I want to point out that you may receive a different shirt in your box. When you subscribe you'll be able to choose your t-shirt size and whether you want a loose or tighter fit.
  • U.S. Army Pint Glass: This is my favorite item in the box. It's a really nice glass cup with a bald eagle design. It was packaged inside of another cardboard box within the Valor Blocks box so it was nice and secure for shipping.
  • Eagle Crest Challenge Coin: Last month's box listed this as a spoiler item for April and I was very curious to see the design. Traditionally, challenge coins were carried by military personnel to present when challenged to prove membership within a unit or regiment, etc. This coin has a beautiful design and is a great collectible item, and I love that it's exclusive to Valor Blocks!
  • U.S. Army Coasters: This has four soft coasters inside with a digital camo pattern and the U.S. Army log on them with a rubbery grip bottom.
  • U.S. Army Bottle Opener: This is a great little portable bottle opener. It has the U.S. Army logo on it and can easily be slipped into your pocket.
Bottom Line: Valor Blocks is a great subscription for members of the military and their friends, family, and supporters. I can imagine this would be a great morale booster as a care package for active duty personnel. This is only the second box ever and I'm excited to see what Valor Blocks will continue to send!
