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 was big again but it’s still thin so it easily fits in my mailbox. Once I opened it I could see all kinds of fun Halloween items. This box arrived before Halloween so there is no issue with that, I’m just a little later getting the review done!
They have a card in the box and it lists all the social media links for Fred’s Box and a code for a discount.
The book we received this month is How The World Began by Fiona Macdonald. It seems to be a little above in reading level then we have been getting but that is not a problem. This book is a collection of stories and myths from different cultures that explain the beliefs about how Earth was created. This one is going to be a good book to make my girls think and to show them a broader range of cultures then we might normally.
The Ooshie is Wonder Woman! How great is that? These things are so freaking cute and my kids love them. Superheros are still a big part of their play and they add in these little guys with their bigger dolls and go from there.
We got a brown pencil crayon this month, we’ll have a complete set by the time this is done! There is also the standard name sticker and postcards, only two this month instead of the normal four.
There are so many mystery items this month!!!!!!!!! It’s a serious haul of Halloween and play items. Half of me wants to hide away the things that are not themed and use them as stocking stuffers. I should but I’m too excited to see the reactions to the things to do that. We received this month, a Littlest Pet Shop blind bag, Halloween Glow Rings (we have a glow stick every night, HOW DO THEY KNOW?????), a Paw Patrol Bracelet, Paw Patrol Hair Ties (all the girls in this house have waist-length hair, again how do they know?), Shopkins Top Trumps cards, Disney Princess Trading Cards, Halloween Nail Tattoos, and Halloween Window Clings. Every single one of these things is going to be a hit. The kids are obsessed with Shopkins and all things card game related. Having their nails done is a special treat that happens way less then they ask for it to. Once again I am astounded at the items we received and the amazing ability they have to put together a box that is full of the things my kids are into at this moment.
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.
