The Penalty Box is a monthly subscription that sends out items for hockey players. They promise to include basic items, skills training, performance wear, and deals. They offer two different plans, The Minor Leaguer, and The Penalty Box. Whichever one you choose, you then get to pick from three age levels, Age 13 and Under, 13+, and Beer Leaguer, which determines the items that will be in your box. Prices start at $29.99 a month and go up from there. They also do a Grab Bag for $21.99 a month that is a mix of anything. They have an online shop that sells some items individually as well. My Hubby has been after me for a while to find him a box and one that is hockey related to boot. That has been impossible until this one so let’s see if we can make him happy with whatever is inside. I also want to mention that I only know things about hockey that have been absorbed by osmosis so if I’m wildly off in describing something, that’s why.
The box items were well hidden in packing peanuts this month. There was also no card telling about what things could be in here. This might be interesting.
Howies Hockey Tape-$5.00
As you can see from the picture, packing peanuts and tape do not mix well. I’ve heard no complaints from the other half about the quality of the tape we’ve received so I’m thinking they’ve been good. The rolls are normal sized and black is never a bad colour choice to receive.
Smart Hockey Stickhandling & Shooting Puck-$14.99
This is a very fancy plastic puck. It has some type of stabilizers in it to mimic the feel and movement of a real puck on ice. I don’t know if this is a useful thing but I’ve watched my hubby play and he could probably use the practice.
A&R The Re-Edger Skate Sharpener-$14.99
Now this one seems like something handy to have on the bench. This little tool can repair edges and remove nicks. It has the v-blades on top and a sharpening stone on the base of the handle.
Miracle Flow Flow Enhancing Shampoo-$3.00 60mL
This smells like mint and is made specifically for longer hair. It is supposed to add shine and luster. It says you’ll know when it’s working because you’ll feel the tingle. Not something I want to think about happening when there is a group of men in a shower together.
Clap Balm Hockey Hand Deodorant-$9.99
This cream has a slight lemon scent to me. It is made to be applied after your game to make your hands not stink like the leather of you sweaty gloves. I don’t smell my hubby’s hands after hockey so I have no clue if this is needed or not but I’m all for anything that makes hockey stink go away.
Metal Lace Puller-$1.95
It took me some Googling to figure out what this thing is. Now that I’ve found out, I have no clue how you’d use it. Can’t you just get a buddy to tighten your laces??
I wasn’t sure what types of things this box would send out and whether or not my hubby would like it. Turns out, this is everything he could want in a hockey box. It gave him a bunch of useful items that he would be buying anyways, plus some things that are helpful to his game. This box had a value of $49.92, which is higher than I paid for the box but just covers it with shipping. I know Hubs is thrilled and wants this box to be one we keep so we might have to work out a deal where I get back rubs or something.
