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 month the book is one the kids have never read before. The My Favourite Fairytales series has been sent to us before and they are great stories, engagingly written. These ones are at a level that Bug can ready with only a little help, so that is a bonus also.
Once again there are no postcards but we got a navy blue pencil crayon and the sticker as normal.
Our Ooshie is Clark Kent, with just a hint of Superman peeking out. I feel like maybe he glows in the dark but we’ll have to wait a few hours to see if that happens.
Our selection of mystery items is amazing again this month. First up was a Littlest Pet Shop Pets In The City blind bag. Then there are tow Tsum Tsum, Chip from Chip & Dale and Mike from Monsters Inc. Mike is Bears favourite character so she’s going to be thrilled. The three little coloured animals are shaped crayons. I think they are super cute and I can’t believe there is no damage to them or breaks for the distance they traveled and the fact there is no real padding in the box. Next up is a Kylo Ren wristband. I think my husband might actually steal this as he’s a big fan. We have a Legend slap bracelet and a Barbie pencil case. These are both going to go over hugely. It’s also great that they can store all the treasures they have in random corners and boxes and bags. We finish off with another package of Disney Princess Trading Cards.
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 crayons and pencils, 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.
