The 90's were a decade-long montage of highly questionable cultural crazes, but luckily there was Super Nintendo, the 16-bit beacon of hope, to keep us safe in our living rooms from the hazards of boy band hysteria, un-ironic soul patches, and whatever brain-debilitating disease made Beanie Babies seem like a smart financial investment.
Super Nintendo provided hours of sugar-fueled button mashing and rendered bedtimes, homework, and playing nice with friends completely obsolete. And yet, how did we honor this golden standard of gaming? By sentencing it to collect dust in the attic for the last fifteen years.
The Super Retro Gamer Crate makes reparations for all those years of neglect by letting you play your stash of old-school favorites anytime, anywhere.
The RetroDuo v2.0 allows you to play classic Super Nintendo and original NES games in this current millenia. Blast Hadokens in Street Fighter II or swipe corners in Super Mario Kart; a world of infinite possibility and unfathomable responsibility squeezed between your sweaty palms.
The neo-vintage system includes two controllers and plugs into any TV so any gamer can fully embrace that couch potato life.
The nostalgia wouldn't be complete without the vintage spread of sweets that once fueled your all-night, thumb-twitching game binges. The Super Retro Crate is stuffed with enough sugar to power you up stronger than a Samus Aran energy beam.
Dust off your childhood game cartridges, recommence your daily thumb calisthenics, and prepare to again perceive the world in 16-bits with the Super Retro Gamer Crate.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

My wife got me a crate for our Anniversary/my birthday. and when I opened it, we had a hand full of old candy and some old games I couldn't give away. She felt so bad that she started to cry, I spent 20 min comforting her and explaining that its the thought that counts. Then I decided to see how much it cost, and my god, I am livid. My anger is palpable at the price that was payed for a bit of candy and some bad games from 1991.
Never buy from this company, if you care about someone, get them literally anything else.

I was so excited for my husband to open this for his birthday that I gave it to him a week early. The crate itself was awesome, but the games were horrible, we got baseball and basketball, and one of the games had someone's name written on the back of it. It's was a fry crying or what was advertised for games on the site, and considering hubby is not a sports fan I felt bad for him and a little disappointed that this was the quality for the cost.
Man Crates Edit:

My husband couldn't stop grinning once he finally opened the crate, the duct tape was hysterical totally worth it! Too bad the games he received were not all that great, certainly not what we would have chosen. The RetroDuo is excellent, no complaints!

I received one for Xmas but was kind of annoyed at the game titles I received. Golf and Baseball :( Pretty exciting right? Going to put this back in the mancrate until I come across some better games. The candy was delicious though.

I'm not going to lie...I'm Pretty disappointed. The 'Guaranteed Arrival date' option upon check out is not reliable. I ordered prior to 12p 3/15 to still be within the 'Same Day Shipping' time frame that is advertised, only to later find out 'Same Day shipping' still needs at least 24hrs. Even then, I was sure I'd be fine with that since it did guarantee the date for me & I had paid extra for shipping next day (again ordered on 3/15)...But unfortunately, the package did not get to me yesterday. I checked online for status in which all it said was 'Awaiting pick up', tried to call but it was already after 6p and could not reach anyone - Sent an email early morning - no response within the hour as promised. I finally called customer service and was told there was a 'Glitch' that did not allow my product to be sent to production. They refunded my shipping fee, but my gift won't make it by today. Definitely not happy, Hope no one else gets promised a date and it not make it on time. Now today is my Brothers Birthday and I have nothing to give him ... hope he's ok with an IOU. Not Cool.
MAN CRATES EDIT:

So, my girl-friend (not girlfriend) bought me this for valentines day. Not only was it my first time having a valentine (25 yr old, never had a girl in February), but she bought me the most awesome gift ever. She laughed her ass off when I was trying to figure out the nails on the create (It's glued...), but as a guy born in 1990, these are my childhood memories in a box. I love the candy, but the emulator is awesome! It goes a step further though, I got a knock off game... Something called "combat basketball". It hardly fit in the player, to the point where I was afraid pulling it out would break it. I spent a solid 5 minutes wiggling it, and it finally broke free. Not only did they replace my game, but they sent me 2 new ones (one is an awesome one about saving Aerosmith [the band] from a futuristic Nazi regime) but they also sent me Jerky!. 10/10 for customer service, and a very, very happy gift recipient

Do you have one of those husbands that always looks just a little disappointed when you buy him something? I do, and it is so frustrating! However that all changed when he finally got his man crate open and saw the contents, he literally teared up and said, "omg you really do get me" he has been geeking out ever since and I couldn't be happier, I will definitely be ordering again, and soon. Finally a place that gets men! I love this!!

I bought one of these for my husband as a combo Valentine Day gift and birthday gift. He loved it and our sons fought over the candy. lol I had paid for the duct tape wrapping and was disappointed that he didn't have that extra layer of "fun" to contend with, but when I called to report it, they were great about fixing the issue. I will definitely order from them again.

The only complaint I have is the games that came in the man crate. I got this for my boyfriend for valentines day and I will say its awesome for saving time shopping! We got two games he had never heard of "Foreman for real" and "Beethoven" One is a boxing game alright cool. Then Beethoven.... really in a man crate?? lol I was expecting a little better for a MAN crate, but over all a great gift and I just had to order more games for him on amazon. I feel like a list of the possible games that could come in your crates would be a great idea so people could prepare for ordering others in case. Like a little heads up, he just has to wait a little longer to play his gift but overall it was good and a neat idea.
MAN CRATES EDIT:

I bought this for my husband as a Valentine's day gift a couple years ago actually. Every year we each try so hard to surprise the other. Usually, I fail. My husband ALWAYS guesses what he's getting. Then I found Man Crates. And I knew this would be perfect! The only hints I gave him were that it comes in a crate. And it completely threw him off. He had NO CLUE! He thought I was lying about the crate and was laughing hysterically when it came in the mail. He had fun opening it and loved the contents even more. A year later and he STILL uses the hand held system. Definitely the perfect gift for any retro gamer lover. I just ordered another Man Crate for him this year and can't wait to see his face when he opens it!

I bought this gift for my boyfriend for Christmas because he is a big video game nerd. It was so fun watching him struggle to open up the crate and see what was inside. Such a great product! Also, ManCrates has the best customer service I have ever seen. If you ever have any issue with a product they will be more than happy to help you. Would highly recommend even if you don't think the person will play the games much it is still cool to have and collect.
