    We noticed this gift was lacking bacon, probably by accident rather than pure ignorance. Would you like to add a bacon product in celebration of Mother Nature's greatest flavor?

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 Yomega Yo-Yo, 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.

    Fun to watch

    I gave the crate to my teenage son for Christmas. It took him forever to open it - it's sealed quite well. He enjoyed all the toys and candy it contained.

    Army strong

    Bought this for my stepson who is in the Army and had to spend Thanksgiving away from the family...just as a pick me up. He loved it and the games and whatnot are always great-no matter what age you are. I will continue to purchase Man Crates for all the men in my life.

    Classically Awesome

    I ordered this crate for my impossible-to-buy-for husband for Father's Day. It was definitely a hit! He & my son had quite a time breaking into the box & were definitely curious as they pried their way in. He was totally surprised. We had many laughs over things we had forgotten about as kids. The kids wanted to try everything all at once, including the slinky (which only survived the day). My husband loved the Rubik's cube so much that it is now an obsession of his, as well as a stress reliever when work gets crazy. He's even gone so far as to order several other "Speed cubes" and is constantly wrapped up researching strategies to solve the cube. Our 5 year old daughter has even caught the Rubik's fever! Great gift!!

    Old School Crate

    I ordered this for my son who recently left for college and it was a huge hit. He loved the slinky and Pop rocks. Will be ordering other crates in the future.

    Old School Crate

    My 43 year old Marine boyfriend loooooved this crate. Took him about ten minutes to open it and was laughing and loving every second of it. He's so excited about the candy and toys and about the box, he's gonna add hinges and turn it into a storage box in his house. I was super happy to find a gift he loved and made him laugh.
