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 showed up really late but yet it shows it was mailed on 1 February so I don’t know what happened to it. The first look is full of things I know the girls will enjoy so let’s dig in.
The book this month is Comings and Goings at Parrot Park and it’s about Canadians that come visiting. I think it’s very fun that they added a book about Canadians to this UK box shipping to Canada. The level of this book is one that Bug can read on her own and it also has lots of pictures if she gets stuck and needs a clue.
This Ooshie is Firestorm. We’ve seen him on Justice League cartoons and he’s a cute as all the rest of the ones we’ve received. These get played with all the time and it’s great to get more for the collection.
We got the grey pencil this time to join the rest. There is also the sticker. Still no more postcards so I guess they’ve stopped including them.
There is a stack of the mystery items this month! We have a few favourites that appear all the time, like the Princess cards. The other things we received are a Shopkins headband, a Shimmer and Shine bracelet, Shimmer and Shine hair ties, Trolls barrettes, and a sticker book about Bugs. Both my girls have long hair so all the hair accessories are perfect. I find the bug book creep but anything with stickers is a win in their eyes. It’s still kinda freaky how well they know their targets and gives us exactly things that we can use or that are what the kids love.
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.
