I was browsing through Twitter a couple of weeks ago and found Toucan Box, I had vague memories of hearing about it a while ago and there was a free box code so I thought I would give it ago. I got the box for free and paid £1 shipping. Usual cost is £4.95 plus £1.00 shipping, it arrived super quick and fits through your letter box so you don’t have to wait in for it.
The box is a creative learning craft box aimed at 3-8 year olds. It is delivered every two weeks or on a monthly basis depending on what you want. You can also cancel or pause your subscription whenever you want ( this was a big seller for me as I hate subscriptions where you have to give lots of notice or have a minimum amount of boxes).
I sat down and unboxed it, I have a video of the whole thing that you can watch here
Inside the box was a little booklet that had instructions for the craft project and then lots of puzzles and colouring in and trivia which I think the girls are a bit small for at the moment but I liked reading it.
Next up was the actual making of the craft, which this box was a little crown. It came with sticky back felt, lots of “diamonds”, sticky dots, ribbon and templates for the crown, the only thing I needed to supply was a pen and scissors. It was relatively simple to do and only took about 5 minutes, I think older children could definitely do it on their own whereas mine needed supervision with the scissors.
You also got a little envelope of offer from other companies which is nice, always good to have a discount code.
The final outcome was super cute and Miicah hasn’t taken it off since we finished around an hour ago, I did however have to use my mum skills and make Aria her own one out of paper. Here are some pictures of them looking super cute.
Overall I think the box is awesome and will be carrying on with the subscription, I think I will continue to get just one box as I do think Aria is a bit little for it at the moment (she’s 2.5). When you sign up you are given a code to share where your friends (you guys) can get your first box for free (I get my next one half price) If you want to try a box for free you can do so here
I hope you guys liked this box, if you get any other kids subscription boxes let me know in the comments so I can look into getting them.
