    He loved it!

    I bought this for my special someone and when he opened it his smile on his face was all I needed. He loved the games. His reaction to the candy wasn’t what I expected. All the candy that was included brought back memories for him. He told me about eating some of the candy with his dad (who’s been gone for a long time) and it made him smile to eat candy from his childhood

    I'm impressed

    I'm impressed this managed to cost north of $70.
    I received this case and all joy was immediately extinguished when it was opened and the loot revealed. Cheap toys and marked up candy sold as "old school". I'm just sad that someone I know paid this much for cheap goods when some of the other crates contain non-useless knick-knacks.

    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.

    Old School Crate

    For our son's 42 birthday, we decided man crates would be the way to make this birthday memorable. He had played with all the toys that came in the crate when he was a child and ate most of the candies then too. So when he opened the crate he was very surprised and had to show his boys how to "walk the dog" with the yoyo. The candies he hid for later. By the way, great job wrapping with the duct tape, it was fun watching him getting the crate opened.

    Awesome anniversary gift

    I got this for my hubby. It was so much fun watching him open it and go through the crate, taking everything out a piece at a time. It was almost like an early Christmas present. He thought it was great. Soon he will have the cube solved , then work on his yo-yo skills.
    Now, what to do for next year? How am I suppose to top this?

    The Best Gift Ever!

    My husband and I got the Old School Man Crate for our son who lives on the west coast. He was so delighted with it that he posted pictures on Facebook with a link to Man Crates! This may not see like a big deal, but this is a guy who posts maybe three times a year, and never with web links, so it is huge to us! Thanks for making this experience a great birthday joy for him! BTW, I think our other son is a bit jealous, so I'll be ordering for his birthday too!

    Best Valentine's Day gift ever!!

    My fiancé loved getting this crate for Valentine's Day. Him and I had just had a conversation a few days prior to me purchasing this for him, about all the "old school" toys and things he used to have. He was so excited when he opened the box and saw so many of his favorite childhood things. Thanks again Mancrates for making it easy to shoot for someone who is soemtimes hard to buy for.

    Great Crate!

    The Old School Crate was my 29 year old nephew's Christmas present. He absolutely loved it! The best part was watching him try to open the crate! Once the crate was opened, he was impressed with all of the candy & toys he remembered from his childhood. Great gift, would definitely order again!

    BIG hit with the Son in Law!!!

    I purchased this for my son in law for Christmas this year. I had it wrapped in extreme duct tape too. (because that really made me laugh, and laugh, and laugh every time I thought about it or saw it sitting under the tree....That was even better than using an annoying amount of scotch tape)

    It was a HUGE hit! He LOVED it and my husband was jealous that he didn't get one.

    Just opening this gift is as much of a gift as the contents of the crate. This is an amazing and FAR preferred alternative to crappy Christmas ties and cologne samplers that no one wears! I can't recommend a gift from Man Crates enough for the Dude (young or old-er) in your life!

    great "man gift" for boys

    Excellent gift idea for any little men in your life. Too much enjoyment to explain.

    He LOVED it

    Took two tries to get this gift to my son for his birthday. The first one was never received. However, when I contacted the company, they not only responded quickly, but they apologized and sent another right away. My son absolutely loved it. It's so hard to find just the right gift to send to a fellow, but you all make it easy! Adam... you really are a Customer Champion! Thank you all so much & keep up the great work. I look forward to ordering from you again!

    Old School Crate for the New Man

    For my brother's 18th birthday I was looking for something he would remember. I had heard about Man Crates and thought it would be the best present for him, I picked the Old School Crate to remind him that he can always be a little kid.
    He has an allergy and wouldn't be able to eat a couple of the pieces of candy that are in the crate, the team was so nice in helping me work around that.
    I loved watching him try and open it- 12min 35seconds. And he loved if after he finally go it open. Thank you so much for making his birthday so memorable!

    Not Just for Men

    I purchased this for my girlfriend. Why? Because it's a f***ing crate you have to open with a crowbar AFTER getting through the massive amounts of duct tape. Better yet, I had it sent to her office. Apparently, it took 3 people to open it no thanks to the online "help" for opening the crate (it's hilarious, look it up if you didn't do it).

    She was super excited, loved every bit of it! It was perfect for work where you want to have as many snacks and desktop distractions as possible.

    I would highly recommend it. Especially with the duct tape.

    Best Gift and Excellent Customer Service!

    Wish I knew about Man Crates sooner! Sent this to my nephew in college for his Birthday and he absolutely loved it! It is truly one of a kind and unique gift to send to a man! Customer service was top notch I Forgot to put his apt number, sent them a message, and it was fixed within minutes. Gift arrived as promised. Defiantly my go to website for sending gifts.

    Made his day!

    The old school crate was sent as a gift to my quirky boyfriend who loves candy. He had no idea what lie ahead when he received his package that day. I received a picture of the crate and crowbar with a text saying "How cool is this!?". Followed by a picture of the goodies and the note card with a text thanking me for such a cool gift. Total WIN!

    After a random conversation about the Rubik's Cube the timing of this gift was absolutely perfect! Sent to my Dad for his birthday.. Can't wait to go over and devour all the candy.

    Great gift! Totally worth it and will definitely buy from Man Crates again!
