Bramble Box is a fun subscription box for children aged 3 through 8 years old. Unlike many kid’s boxes which tend to focus on crafts and toys, Bramble Box encourages learning through open-ended pretend play.
Every Bramble Box is focused on a different theme and contains materials for hours & hours of free play fun. Boxes are gender neutral and can include such themes as detective, post office, bakery, and more. The materials are intended to help your child use their imagination, express themselves, improve reading and math skills, learn about the world around them, and overall, have FUN.
Bramble Boxes are available for purchase as single boxes, on a month-to-month basis, and as multi-month subscriptions. The monthly and one-time boxes are $25, while multi-month commitments are as low as $23/month. (Read on for a limited time (4 days only) 50% coupon code!)
Let’s have a look inside April’s Bramble Box!
Everything was shipped in a standard brown package adorned with cute Bramble Box stickers.
Their little fox head logo is flippin’ adorable.
The theme this time is “Veterinarian”! A list of everything inside the box was pasted to the inner lid.
A brochure was included to further explain the theme, as well as to give tips and ideas for using the materials.
Pet Protection Cover – Bramble Box made a point to send “real” vet tools and equipment, as opposed to the toy versions. They wanted to give kids a chance to see what actual veterinarians use… like this pet cone! Yep, your kiddo can fit their own little patient (preferably a stuffed animal) with its very own “cone of shame”. haha Cute! (Note: Brobee was NOT included in this box. He’s simply a volunteer/model.)
Dual Head Stethoscope – I was surprised to see an actual, heavy duty professional stethoscope included. Very cool! I just used it to listen to my heart and it was kinda freaky, to be honest. I’m super squeamish when it comes to anything involving the inner workings of the body. Don’t ask how I got through nine months of a twin pregnancy without passing out a few times. It still amazes me. 😉
Pet Food – Obviously they weren’t going to include real pet food (thankfully). But (stuffed) animals gotta eat, so they sent their food of choice — plush pom-poms! Yum.
Medical Equipment – Every good vet’s gonna need some bandages, a syringe for medicine or shots, some adjustable face masks, and a couple tongue depressors.
X-Rays – Uh-oh! Did kitty break her paw? Your child can find out by drawing an x-ray using the included black construction paper and chalk.
Fleas – Poor Brobee… He’s got fleas. 🙁 So itchy! These pretend fleas have velcro glued to their backs, allowing them to be attached to your child’s unluckiest stuffed animal. (Again, Brobee’s just a model. He was NOT included in this box.)
Patient Records & Appointment Cards – Also included were patient records and appointment cards for your child to practice their writing skills as well as spark some creativity. Additional copies can be printed from the Bramble Box website.
I thought this was a really fun Bramble Box theme. It’s neat that they sent actual tools and equipment that real vets use. I’m going to wait until my girls are a little older to play with this box (they’re only 2 1/2), but I’m sure they’ll get a lot of use out of everything once they can. While the actual equipment is cool, I have a feeling they’ll be all about the “pet food”. 😉
