    hugely satusfied!

    My husband completely geeked out when he opened the box to find all the candy and Nintendo. He loved the crate that it came in and plans to keep it forever. He sent pictures of everything immediately to his best friends to make them all jealous. Very proud of this gift. My two year old daughter also loves stealing Daddy's candy.

    Great gift idea

    My son in law is a gamer and buying gifts can be difficult. he returned from a tour of duty to find a box waiting for him. the smile on his face says it all. You have made us both happy.

    Perfect Gift!

    I've been with my husband over 10 years and him turning 31 you run out of ideas. This was a perfect gift to describe to him to let's not keeping counting forward but instead let's start counting backwards in life! :) Needless to say he loved everything about it!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    super cool girlfirend award

    Got this crate as a late valentines early anniversary present for my boyfriend....he loves it!...He set it up and started playing right away...even whet online to find more games!...Will definitely be ordering from man crates again.

    Got this as a gift for my nerdy husband. He absolutely loved it, and prying it open was worth a ton of laughs and of course a video taping. Will for sure be ordering more from this site! I just wish there was a "women crate" of sorts.

    Excellent Gift!

    I purchased the Retro Gamer ManCrate for my son's 31st birthday gift! I have to say, it was an excellent gift. He was super excited and I maintained my "Best Mom Ever" status!!!
    The product was exactly as described, shipped very quickly, arrived on the day promised and was packaged as per the description. My son was blown away that his gift came in an actual crate with a crowbar! I would highly recommend Mancrates and am planning to be a repeat customer; we have four sons.

    My husband loved this gift, it arrived promptly and he was able to open it first thing on Valentines day, where as what he got me didn't arrive until 5pm! Maybe he should have gotten me a Mancrate! I plan on purchasing another, for myself!!! :)

    Great people, great service, great product!

    It is my husbands birthday and he just opened up his crate! It was a gift that really surprised him in a good way. Unfortunately when we received it one of the 2 games was unable to play. Within minutes Will from the website helped us get a new game to replace the old one. Great people, great service, great product!

    Birthday Gift

    I ordered the Retro gamer for my husband for his birthday. I wanted to take him back to his childhood. It was definitely a great gift idea, He loved it!! He loved the concept of opening the gift with a crow bar. It took him a while, but when He finally got it open he was amazed at what he saw. He immediately hooked it up and began to play. He also started shopping online for more games. I would definitely order from man crates again!

    He's a Dork

    He's a complete gamer. And I'm not. So sometimes I have a hard time getting him gifts he genuinely loves. Well, I scored major points with this one. It took him back to his childhood and he loved it. I asked him to record himself opening the gift so I could see his reaction. Lol he was seriously struggling trying to pry the crate open and it was absolutely hilarious! He loved it, probably because it's such a unique gift. Thanks Mancrate, you made me a hero ;)

    Perfect--Just Perfect!!

    I love giving gifts that are unique and unexpected--my husband was NOT expecting this for Valentine's Day but he loved it! Ordering was painless, shipping was on point, and is now my go-to gift source.
