Press Start to Begin

Before there were streaming services, before there were all-in-one media boxes, a video game console had one purpose. And when you got one for your birthday, you flipped out like the meaning of your entire existence on planet Earth had completely changed.

That momentous birthday seems shrouded in the mists of time. Your library of obsolete video games is the only reminder of those halcyon days when a sore and calloused thumb was a badge of honor.

Today's game systems are undeniably cool, but sometimes you just want to play - No menus, no movies, no fluff.


It's time to give your game collection new life. Muscle memory kicks in as you power through the classics on a Retro-Bit NES console. You remember the laser-like focus required to smash the backboard in NBA Jam. There's an entire section of your brain dedicated specifically to Street Fighter 2 combos. And you can thread the needle in Gradius better than Luke Skywalker barreling down the Death Star trench.

A Winner is You

A suite of sweets courses through your veins, mana from a lost age, endowing you with inhuman energy and endurance as you recondition your once-dominating reflexes. Revel once again in your accomplishments as you best the most unforgiving 8-bit games.

Makeshift Time Machine

  • Retro-Bit NES Console
  • 2 classic Nintendo games
  • (randomly selected from an assortment of time-honored, awesome games)

Sugar Intoxication

      Just killer

      What a great gift! My boyfriend was stoked on it, it was delivered really quickly, and customer service was great. Can't recommend this enough. I find getting gifts for guys really hard and this is such a great option. Yay :)

      Man Crate is now in My son in laws Man Cave

      This was such a fun gift! I had seen the sight when I researched cool gift ideas for Grads! When I saw these different crates I knew that my son in law had a Birthday coming up and would truly like this. When I called my daughter to let her know what I was thinking - she said that he had wanted a gift from Man Crates for Christmas! Specifically this Retro Gaming Man Crate! Needless to say the Duct Tape was so worth the extra cost and he truly enjoyed his gift!

      AWW YEAH

      Ordered this for my husband to celebrate his day of birth. I can already tell without yet receiving it, that it will be epic. Will he love it? YES. Why? BECAUSE HE IS A MAN, AND IT IS A MAN CRATE. Thank you MAN CRATES. CHEERS TO MY MAN!

      Husband dug it.

      My husband had a fun time opening his crate and thought it was super cool. I was a bit disappointed that instead of the well-known games pictured he was sent two obscure games we've never heard of, but I realized I signed up for random games, so I guess I can't really complain too much about that. I just wish they'd been more well-known so there would actually be a feel of nostalgia with them. Other than that though, he thought this was a pretty fun thing to receive at work.

      Amazing gift

      I got this for my boyfriend for our anniversary and he absolutely loved it. He's a big fan of all the candy and both of the games. Will definitely be ordering from y'all again.

      Coolest Present Ever

      I sent the Retro Gamer Kit to my friend and received this text, "Ok, just opened up basically the coolest present I can remember getting in years, thank you so much!" He said opening it was half the fun and can't wait to head to a pawn shop to find some more old NES games to play on his new console.

      Thanks for putting this gift together because it makes sending a gift to an old-school-gamer-punk-rock-dude a lot easier. I don't really think he would have liked a bouquet of flowers.

      got this for my boyfriend for his birthday and only one of the games work and some of the candy is old and can't be eaten. not planning on ordering this again.

      Brother's Bday

      I got this as a bday present for my brother who loves retro candy and video games and he loved it. I was hesitant after reading reviews of late boxes with broken games inside, or two of the same game, but everything was in tact and timely. He loved opening the box, even though he had never used a crowbar before HAHA. That made the gift even funnier. I would definitely send another mancrate.

      Big Hit

      A friend of mine showed me ManCrates and I absolutely loved the idea as soon as I visited the site. My boyfriend's birthday was coming up and I wanted to "think outside the box" for this year and this was a huge hit. He had no idea what to think of the crate and crowbar at first and then he was like a kid trying to pry it open. The NES, games and candy were things he never would have thought of getting. Although one of the games did not work when it arrived, ManCrates was willing to send a replacement game without all the frustration most places give customers. Thank you for coming up with a manly gift basket men will not be embarrassed to receive!
