Loot Crate is a monthly service in which you receive geek-friendly merchandise at a discount, grouped around a particular theme. This month’s theme was heroes, which is even broader than last month's villains theme. The heroes of note are actually a repeat -- more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles insanity.
I mentioned previously that all the heroes are divided along between my seven-year-old boy and four-year-old girl. In this case, Donatello is the girl's favorite (because he's purple) and Michelangelo is the boy's favorite (because he's Mikey). Leonardo is nobody's favorite, and my girl complained vociferously about the glasses being the "wrong color." She still work the sunglasses though.
They glasses are actually adult-sized, which makes them rather oversized on my girl. Despite them being the turtle she likes the least (nobody likes Leonardo), she rated it Awesome, five out of five stars. Want your own Loot Crate?
