We have tried out a few different monthly boxes over the past few years. To be honest none of them have really blown me away. Yes they have been nice and the kids have enjoyed them but none have propelled me to actually sign up spend the money each month. That is, until the beebee box arrived a few weeks ago. I was completely blown away by this box, there was literally something for everyone.
Before I even opened up the goodies inside the box I was wowed by the packaging. I love brown paper, I wrap all my gifts in it. I think there is so much you can do with it and the ladies at beebee box got it just right. Sometimes it is the small things that make the biggest impression. There was SO much inside the monthly toddler box, the products just kept coming.
We received the tot box, which is aimed at toddlers from 1 – 3 years old. All three younger kids had fun with some of the toys we received. Personally these types of toys really appeal to me, it means I am definitely getting my moneys worth out of the items.
Emma’s favourite was the number puzzle. She spent ages removing the pieces, putting them back and talking about the characters. It was also a nice way to get Jack to do his homework. He has to count to 20 and then backwards again, so this was a nice way to get him to do it without even realising it. It is one of the better number puzzles for toddlers, the numbers are nice and big so they can easily get them in and out of the corresponding hole.
This Interstar Animal Tube set is Jack’s favourite toy, he plays with it all the time. You can create different shapes and “things” from it. It comes with a few ideas but Jack has had so much fun creating his own things. He has made cars, animals and most recently a space ship. It is such a fun toy that helps with colour recognition, hand-eye co-ordination, problem solving and more. Emma did struggle a little with this one a little bit. I think the more she uses it the easier it will get though.
Kiara spotted the Custom Tempura paint blocks and grabbed them before I could even read the info sheet about them. She created some really pretty paintings using the 3 colours we were sent. She did allow the younger two to also try them out a little bit though. These paints are water based and super easy to clean.
I have kept the book and the wool craft back for a rainy day but the book is all about colours and it is gorgeous. I love bright colours so it really appeals to me. It has a set of flashcards you can cut out and ask your children questions around the colours of the animals. The yarn wrapped heart is a very cute little craft using wool and a cardboard cut out.
There was a lifestyle items in the box which has made me want to actually cut my finger or scrape my knee. It is the prettiest little tin of plasters. I have hidden them away from Emma because I suspect if she sees them she will suddenly need plasters everywhere.
There is still more to this monthly box!!
There were a few freebie items in the box as well. I have shared the Eat Naked products that were in the box. But there was also a very cool Badger Lip Tint and Shimmer which is an Natural product made with cocoa butter.
The beebee box is R440 per month but I can honestly say that it is well worth it, just for the hours it has kept my kids occupied. The boxes come in three different categories. The tot box, which we got.The kiddie box which is for children aged 3 – 6 years old and the schooly box is for 6 – 9 year olds.
beebee box was the brain child of two sisters. They are also moms and developed this idea as a way to help moms to come up with new and exciting things to do with their children. You can read more about their story here.
I would give the beebee box a try to be honest I would sign up just to see what the freebie items are for me each month.
