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, 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 flat box showed up around the same time again this month. It looked a little messy inside but it does travel a long way to get here.
This month’s book is Kasia’s Surprise. It is a novel about the summer break from school and the adventures of Kasia during that time. It has a few Polish words and looks to be a good chapter book right at Bug’s current reading level. It also has some images in the book to help with grasping the storyline.
I can’t remember what this little lizard guys name is, but he is very cute. I see my girls playing with the Ooshies they have previously received all the time so that is a good thing. So many little toys get played with and tossed aside.
The pencil crayon of the month is a lovely orange one and the sticker is there as normal.
Our four mystery items this month are a package of animal print scissors, a pack of Shopkins Trading cards (the kids love this game), Frozen Best Friends Necklace set, and a Frozen jewelry set that includes ring, bracelets, and necklaces. We used to have scissors in this house, no clue where they ended up so getting more is a needed item. There are lots of pieces of jewelry for the girls so there should be less fighting than normal…..who am I kidding?
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.
