Never Outgrow Fun

Growing up is optional. Maybe nobody told you that you had a choice, or maybe you just woke up one day and realized that it had happened to you.  The good news is that it's reversible.

More About 'Fun' 

You've had fun before, why not have fun again?

If it's been a while, don't sweat it- this kit has everything you need to relearn the basics: a classic metal Slinky, the original stultifying Rubik's Cube, a Magic 8 Ball, and a Pez Dispenser (with reloads).  Could it be the greatest assortment of retro gear ever assembled into a wooden crate? It is Decidedly So.

Let's Take it Back 

This crate is like an archaelogical dig through Willy Wonka's factory.  We travelled back in history and catalogued layer after layer of candy to create a timeline of candy stretching back past the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.

So pry this crate open and forget about that mortgage payment. There’s a Rubik’s Cube to solve and some serious life choices to shake out.

    Posted by Unknown on 01/18/2014 ( Old School Crate 5 stars)

    I was going to be away for his birthday. I searched for days for something really special and meaningful to send my amazing guy and as soon as I saw your website and this crate, my search was over. Delivery was quick and arrived on a Saturday, the day of his birthday. His reaction alone was priceless. He was so entertained and thoroughly enjoyed every item. Thank you, I will definitely recommend you to all my friends and co-workers and be purchasing more crates in the future.

This is the second time ive ordered from "man-crate", the first was gift for the bosses.......... I AM VERY PLEASED! A+++ ! I WILL ORDER AGAIN AND AGAIN!


  7. Top Notch Customer Service

    Posted by Sadie on 12/18/2013 ( Old School Crate 5 stars)

    I just placed an order online. I absolutely love that I came across your website when I Googled "gift baskets for men". These crates are genius! I called in after I placed the order to see about upgrading my shipment to overnight since I had missed the cut off. The nice gentleman gave me the upgraded shipping without any additional charge. I cannot wait for my friend to receive his gift. I know he will love it!

Rubik's Cube Pro-Tips

#1 It's not a toy, it's a career move

Most people who see a Rubik’s cube on your desk will assume you can solve it.

Most people can’t solve Rubik’s cubes, so they’ll assume you’re smarter than them. Bottom line- put a Rubik’s cube on your desk and ask for a promotion.

#3 There's always a solution

There’s more than one way to solve a Rubik’s cube. The Gerber Combo Axe worked pretty well for us.
