Grab bags are fun, especially when you have no idea what may be inside of them. Just about everyone loves surprises, right? Of course, they can also be a little nerve-wracking when you have to pay for them, because not everyone loves to pay for something when they have no idea what they’re getting. Doorstep Curiosities offers the excitement of the surprise for a reasonable price, and they allow you to somewhat customize the experience based on your own interests, so you know you’ll most likely get something cool.

I reviewed the Nerdy Grab Bag, because my son is a total fanboy and I knew he’d love the experience of opening a package and discovering cool treasures. I gave Doorstep Curiosities minimal info, basically said that my son loves superheroes, and told them to surprise me. Well, they definitely did just that! Our grab bag came packed with comics, little Pokemon figures (Jake is a Pokemon addict), pins, a Star Wars figure, and even a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DVD. It was definitely a fanboy’s dream! Sorry for the cruddy picture, I desperately need a better camera!

Doorstep Curiosities Nerdy Grab Bag Review

Doorstep Curiosities offers several different themed grab bags, including the Nerdy one that I received, which covers comics, Star Wars, role-playing games, and basically anything else that you’d expect to find at Comic-Con. For those who love music, fashion, and staying on top of everything that is hip and cool, they offer the Hipster Grab Bag. Expect to find goodies such as scarves, wristbands, and funky jewelry in this one. The Young At Heart Grab Bag features little toys and other fun things for children (or those of us who enjoy acting like children every once in a while), and the Artsy Grab Bag features tools to help you be creative.

The Grab Bags come in three different sizes. A small bag runs $5 and contains 2-4 surprise items, a medium costs $12 and has 5-7 items, and the large runs $20 and contains 8-12 items. It seems as though the creative forces behind Doorstep Curiosities really take the time to ensure that you’re getting your money’s worth, so you don’t have to worry about spending $5 on bubble-gum machine junk. You can give them ideas for what you would like, but there are no guarantees. For example, if you have a little Star Wars fanatic on your hands, feel free to tell them that, and they’ll  see what they can do to make your grab bag just right.
