Loot Crate Unboxing Video – April 2016 Quest Theme

We focus on Apple and apps, but sometimes that connection extends to physical goods. Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service that delivers a $20 box of geek & gamer gear with an MSRP of around $45. Past crates have featured some well known connections to iOS, and the items in general have an appeal to fans of technology and apps. The April 2016 Loot Crate theme is Quest with inspiration from Uncharted 4, Harry Potter, and more. Here is our Loot Crate unboxing video for this month.

Loot Crate ($20/Recurring)

Loot Crate has started 2016 strong with great collections in January, February, and March. Their streak ended in April with a relatively disappointing crate. The quest theme has a lot of potential, and yet the selections this month mostly miss the mark. The Uncharted item as a small poster and the Harry Potter item as socks provide two small extras tied to the big names for the theme. This month’s t-shirt is from the movie Labyrinth, and while it’s nice to honor David Bowie, it’s a relatively niche film that doesn’t hit the quest theme as much as many other franchises. The Vikings drinking cup and the 20 sided dice ice cube maker are neat, but I don’t know if many will get much use out of. The neat factor of each item will wear off quickly.

January, February, and March really nailed their respective themes with products that offer long term use. They may have set the bar high, but the April 2016 Loot Crate doesn’t even come close.
