    "...coolest gift ever"

    I bought this for my husband for our 4th anniversary. Once he had it all opened and laid out he said "this is probably the coolest gift ever!" The kid in him came to life in an instant! He was playing DinoKing with our 2 year old within minutes of opening the crate. I am not sure I will be able to top this gift! Thanks Man Crates!!!!

    Retro-Gamer crate

    My husband, who is an avid gamer, absolutely loved his crate. He reverted back to his wee self and it was awesome to watch. Superb customer service!!!! Will be ordering more crates for sure. He even repackaged everything and brought it into work to brag. Major points for this chick. ;-)

    Retro-Gamer Crate

    My husband LOVED getting this for Fathers Day from my son! They went to a used game store and bought more retro games and played all day.

    Nothing beats watching a man in his primal state. It started with the grunting and yanking with his manly mancrate crowbar, as he wiped sweat off his brow. Then when it began to break open it turned to girlish cries of glee. He was so happy I was afraid I would have to type "he weeped tears of joy", thankfully it stopped with the squealing, and he dug into the box. Ohhh I love that candy, and WOW I wanted this game wayyy back when.. You know because we are like cave men, and old and stuff. He was thrilled and I captured it all on my handy phone camera and instagrammed the entire affair! Thank you MANCRATES for the best Father's Day gift I could have given my husband. It was so good I gave it to him early!

    It's quite awesome

    So yeah, what's not to like, a crowbar and a crate for a 40th birthday present? I took a few minutes admiring the crate before I tore in to it. Out spilled the goodies of my childhood. Candies you used to secret away so you didn't have to share them, and, more importantly, the NES system. I dug the games out and found RC Pro Am and much to my dismay, Home Alone. Fortunately after one call to customer service, they replaced it with something far more bad-ass. I can't complain, awesome toys, and simply amazing customer service!

    Loved It

    I had this delivered to my husband's office as a surprise anniversary gift. We are in our 30s so we were kids when the contents of this box would not be "retro" so it was a fun gift that impressed his office mates. It is also cool to be able to send something "manly" when most gift sites are lame or female-oriented. My hubby does not want flowers or chocolates or PJs.

    Perfect Gift!!

    This was the greatest gift for my boyfriend. I was feeling really bad about being out of town for his birthday but I paid the extra shipping to make sure his crate arrived on his birthday and he was blown away. He was so happy and couldn't stop talking about how it was the best gift he's ever received. Incredibly unique and the perfect gift for someone who is difficult to buy for.

    The Bomb!

    Getting harder and harder to get a fortysomething gamer the right birthday gift. My son went absolutely bananas when he got his mancrate. His favorite item? The Captain America Pez dispenser!!!

    Pretty EPIC

    This was great! He loved opening his gift with the mini crowbar! May want to mention the colors for the game system may vary(ours is black and red).
    Is there anyway you can mention the size of the crate? I was expecting something a little larger. It's about 12x12x12.
    Other than that this was EPIC!!! Couldn't have picked a better gift for my boyfriend.

    Awesome surprise for the husband!

    My husband worked really hard in his last semester of college and I wanted a gift that would surprise and entertain him. Loved the packaging. He actually emailed me wondering what the man crate was and I told him "You're a man. Open it." He absolutely loved it and said it was the nicest gift he's received in a long time. Great end of semester present to help him relax.

    Perfect gift for a long-time Nintendo fan :)

    I recently purchased this Man Crate for my husband's 32nd birthday. He is a long-time Nintendo fan and this nostalgic gift was a pleasant and appreciated surprise! I wasn't able to choose what games came with it, which was fine, because now that we have the platform to play it on, acquiring other games will be much easier!

    Retro Gamer Crate

    I am deployed in a different country then my boyfriend, but wanted to get him something special- he loved this! The packaging alone was awesome enough, but he was blown away. Everything was in great condition. Won a lot of girlfriend points for this one. :)

    Great Gift

    Boyfriend loved it

    Thank you guys so much for the great idea!! My boyfriend absolutely loved the gift. I heard about you through another friend, and I want to spread the word....However, I plan on giving these as gifts to many people in the near future! And I don't want to ruin the surprise.

    Great concept! You guys are really onto something here! It was a blast watching him open it with his crowbar. He even grabbed a hammer...How manly!!

    Soooo way too cool!!!

    Was a definite hit (his words) for my son who turned 31 today. His 3-year-old son HAD to help him open it then proceeded to start eating HIS candy. He can't wait to hook up the NES. He hasn't talked about a gift I have given him in so long I can't remember. Just seeing this brought back so many memories, I had to get it. Y'all are geniuses!! I really don't like to write reviews but I just had to. I got my boyfriend the golf crate for Valentine's Day and it was AWESOME also!!! Hell, as long as y'all come up with all these ideas, I won't ever have to worry about what to get my guys!!

    This is awesome and he LOVED it!!!

    I got this for my boyfriend and he absolutely LOVED it!!! I have never seen him as excited as he was when he opened this up. He was even more excited that he got wrestlemania because he loved that game when he was a kid! These are so neat and I am sure he will get another one in the future!! I have also recommended your site to a ton of other people already, and so has he. Guys are so hard to buy for sometimes, and your site totally makes it easy! You guys rock!!

    Perfect "manly" groomsmen's gift

    For months I searched the net looking for a unique, different Groomsmen gift but nothing fit the bill. Out of sheer frustration I decided to Google "manly gifts" and WHAM! there it was the answer to my solution. I ordered 3 different crates, shipping was fast and I reside in Canada. The crates won't be opened until June and the suspense is killing us !!
    So far so good, would definitely order again.

    I wanted to get a gift for my fiance, who is a gamer, and I randomly came across this website, then I found this box. By far the best gift I have ever bought. He was super excited and the way it was packaged wasn't only cool and MANLY but actually really funny. This gift is perfect not only for him but for me, because now I can really enjoy his hobby as well, because this takes me back to my childhood. I couldn't be happier. Thank you!

    My boyfriend has BOXES of games, and purchased 3 game systems on ebay, but none of them would work. He was SO excited when he opened this crate to see that he could play his games. Not only does he love them, but he LOVES playing them with our 3 year old son. I was upset that I did not get the duct tape wrapping like I requested, but customer service was very fast at responding to me, and put the money bacnk into my account from the wrapping. I will be purchasing more man crates. Awesome gifts!

    Perfect gift

    My husband absolutely loved his Valentine's present. Although the package arrived three days late (through no fault of Man Crates, because they got the package into the mail on time), he thought the crate itself was a very cool novelty item, and once he saw the gaming system inside, he was even more excited. (Our cats love the crate, too, by the way. Perfect size for kitty tushies).

    He received Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (which he remembered playing as a child on his original system) and Captain Skyhawk. We immediately hooked up the system to our spare TV and tried out the games. He was like a kid in a candy store (both figuratively and literally, thanks to the collection of treats included).

    10/10, would recommend to nostalgic gaming friends.
