If you’ve been around Peanut Butter and Whine for a while you know I am addicted to subscription boxes. I love getting a surprise every month that’s just for me. But, I am giddy over this subscription box! It’s designed for kids and creative play!!!!! Hello Bramble Box!! A monthly subscription box designed just for kids with Pretend Play Activities!! The boxes are designed for 3 to 7 year olds.
So, what’s in the box? Something different every month. Crafts, activities, maybe even a book. Every month is different. Each kit focuses on learning through play with emphasis on math, writing, reading, art or science.
YOU can choose what theme you want or you can be surprised. Five-year-old Alice and I chose The Flower Shop. Seriously, this kid is addicted to flowers! We go to Michaels or Hobby Lobby several times a month and the kid begs for flowers every single time!! Coloring book? Nope. Stickers? Nope. A flower. Her future boyfriend better make friends with a florist!
We opened the green Bramble Box and right off the bat I was impressed; tissue paper surrounds the goodies inside! Closed with a Bramble The Fox sticker. So cute!! Inside? Everything that Alice needed to create her own Flower Shop. We spent the morning making tissue paper flowers, cupcake paper flowers and more. Everything was included; from the instruction booklet to the tissue, the pipe-cleaners, stickers for the inside. (I said ‘Oh look! Happy faces!!’ Alice replied “Non they are emoji’s” SHE’S FIVE and she knows EMOJI’S?!?!)
Next up we décorated the cardboard (think paper-mache) flower pots. We glued torn up pieces of the extra tissue paper around the outside and added a sticker or two and let that dry.
Next up was where to put these beautiful flowers. Well, Bramble thinks of everything; bonus we used absolutely every part of the Bramble Box, including the box! Bramble Box included printouts that resemble a basket, so Alice glued the pages to the box for her flower stand. So cute!!
The flowers were created, the box décorated it was time to fill out her hours and prices. Well, the girl is NOT in the flower business for the money!
I love her HOURS! Seriously, does this kid ever work?!?
In Spring 2016 we were awarded a Recommended Award by Parents’ Choice Awards for our Pretend Play Pizzeria Kit to recognition of the fun and educational value of our product.
