Fred’s Box is a monthly subscription full of things for kids 3 and over. In the Mystery Box, you get a book, an Ooshie or Crayola funky shapes, depending on the age of the recipient, pencil, sticker, postcards, and some mystery items. You can get this box as a twin version to get double the goodies. There is a straight Ooshies box that saves you from having to try to collect them one at a time as well, in 4 sizes. Boxes start at $3.99 British Pounds and go up from there. Shipping to Canada is 54 pence a month. I decided to go with the Mystery Box for Bug and since her birthday is soon, I aged her up to 6 for the books. They shipped out quite quickly after ordering and now we get to check out what’s inside.
The box is made to fit through a letterbox so it’s very thin. On the top is a sticker that is personalized to the child. Inside it tells you who packed the box and then everything else is hidden under some tissue paper and a card.
The card included is a Thank You for ordering and lets you know where you can contact them and that they have a contest that runs every other month.
Goldilocks and The Wolf
This is a book that is made for beginning readers. It is a Jumble of two fairy tales into one and in the second to the last tier of the reading levels for this series. Bug is not reading on her own yet but she does recognize words and it’s good to add a new book to her collection.
White Lantern Superman Ooshie
This little guy is super cute! He is a squishy little character that can also be used as a pencil topper. My girls are very into superheroes and little blind bag items so I think this will make their day.
There is a purple pencil crayon that is branded with the name, a sticker for Bug, and four blank postcards that can be decorated and mailed.
The mystery items for this month were definitely packed with a knowledge of kids and what they are into. There is a Shopkins slap bracelet, Shopkins rubber bracelet set, a floral fidget spinner, and a package of Disney Princess Trading Cards. All of these things are going to be such a hit with the girls that I don’t even know how to contain the screaming that will happen.
This box is great fun. The girls are going to be very happy with all the toys in it and the book has already been given the thumb’s up. There is an opportunity for creativity with the postcards, learning with the book, and play with the rest. I can’t wait to see what future boxes from them bring us.
