Still Shaking My Head Over June's Geek Fuel Box

Sometimes it's not going to be what you think. That's the trouble with subscription boxes. They tend to be random. With all that said, I'm usually incredibly satisfied with my Geek Fuel subscription. I can't confidently say that this month.


Here's what the box included:



The coolest thing in the box is of course the t-shirt, and I like the Super 1-Up planter. However, the stamp and Pikachu temporary tattoo? Not great. Definitely two cheap additions that could have been put towards something better. Then comes the most confusing item of all…

The Geek Fuel Exclusive Turtle Trainer….


If I made an unboxing video I'm sure the confused expression on my face would have been amusing. To be honest, I'm still not really sure what the point is…


The official title is "Turtle Trainer Stress Ball" and the description is:

"Stressed out from trying to teach your turtle to say "Cowabunga?" Try using our Turtle Trainer stress ball to ease your worry. It's Super Effective!"

Well that might just be the most corny attempt at merging Pokemon and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles together that I've ever heard. You can't just put something in the shape of a turtle shell/pokeball and expect it to make sense. What makes it even worse? It's not even a good quality stress ball.
