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.
This box is much better preserved as I got to it first! It’s a little closer to what you can expect when you get your box. I can tell right off the bat this one is going to be another winner.
The book this month is a classic fairytale, Rapunzel. With the amount of joy that comes from the Tangled series and movie, this story is a good fit. It is also a good book for Bug’s reading level as the words are large and clearly printed so we can work on her reading skills as we go.
The Ooshie is cute and I have no clue who he is. He has a cape and an arrow on his head. He also looks kinda pink instead of red but that could be the lights in the house. He looks grumpy too so maybe he’s a villain. If anyone can help me out, please do!
We are back to having a pencil crayon in the box. Teal is my favourite colour. There are the postcards to fill in too. There are four of them each time I just stack them to get the picture.
The mystery items are off the hook! We have a Frozen headband, a package of Scented Glitter Gel Pens, Frozen Barrettes, a pack of Disney Princess Trading Cards, and a My Little Pony blind bag. It’s so insane!! I’m now 100% convinced they have a device that is reading my kids minds from all the way of in Britain. The hair items are needed because my kids lose them like crazy, they love blind bags to the point that they watch the ridiculous opening videos online ALL THE TIME, and more Princess cards are wanted daily.
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. Fred’s Box run contests and have lots of special boxes you can get quite often. If you want to check them out and get your own box of goodies click here.
