My Pretend Place December 2015 Review + Coupon
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I received this box for review.
My Pretend Place has released a new feature to their subscription, Build Your Own Box. My Pretend Place is a subscription box for children 3-8, that encourages pretend, dress-up, learning and imagination. Previously, you were sent a random theme each month, but now you can choose your theme.
My Pretend Place‘s mission is to get children crafting, dressing up, pretending and using their imaginations! There are two boxes, a dress up box and a DIY Projects Subscription box. The Dress Up box is $50.00 every 3 month (quarterly) and comes in boy, girl or gender neutral. Each box will contain dress-up costumes, activities or crafts, and other pretend play inspiration. Every three months, you get a big box of goodies and the two off months, you get free bonus materials.
When you sign up for the dress up box, you can choose between the following themes: astronaut, chef, cowboy, cowgirl, fairy, fire fighter, pirate, princess, safari, superhero (boy and girl), veterinarian or surprise me. You can choose up to four themes at a time, and you will get the themes in order that you choose them. I choose the safari theme this month.
There was a letter from Ranger Twiga. This month, your child is going on a safari to see various animals. This box is filled with a safari outfit and all the gear your child will need.
Every box comes with a handle and stickers, so your child can turn the box into a storage suitcase. We save our boxes and store our outfits this way. There was also a general information card and a magnet.
Melissa and Doug Backyard Explorer $29.99 We have many Melissa and Doug dress up outfits, but I selected the safari outfit because he didn't own it already. The clothing for this outfit is a hat and vest. It also comes with two accessories: binoculars and a bug jar with a magnifying glass lid. I normally show a picture with my kids wearing the costume, but since it is so close to Christmas, I am saving this as a gift.
Safari in South Africa $6.99 This book is only being sold by 3rd party merchants. so I just used the price printed on the book. This book is a mixed of real animal pictures and cartoon pictures. It's a story about a trip kids take on a safari.
Here is a look inside the book.
Melissa & Doug Animal Pattern Blocks $19.99 This set comes with 5 double sidded animal cards and 47 shapes to make different different animals. This is a great activity for spacial relations and shape recognition.
Here is a look at all the animals in the box.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $56.97. I really liked this month's box and I think my sons will really love getting these toys for Christmas. My sons play with their past boxes all the time. This would make a great gift for a 3-8 year old.
