I haven’t gotten a chance to review a Bramble Box since October, so I was happily surprised to find one waiting at my mailbox recently. Yay!
If you’re not aware, Bramble Box is a fun subscription box for children aged 4 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. (Right now you can save 30% on your first month with coupon code “Janblues“!)
Let’s see what’s inside the January 2016 Bramble Box!
I love the new box design!
A peek inside.
January’s Bramble Box was themed “Pizzeria” and included materials for your child to create their own pizza restaurant.
Cardboard Base & Toppings – Two cardboard bases were provided to serve as either the crusts of your pizza, baking stones, serving trays, or plates. Washable durafelt circles represented the sauce and cheese.
More Toppings – There were plenty of felt toppings consisting of pepperoni, mushrooms, and green bell peppers.
Full Pizzas – There were enough materials provided to create three whole pizzas. You could also opt to cut one or two of the pies into pieces, but to make it simple I chose to keep them in tact. (There were more than enough individual pieces to keep track of to begin with! 😉 )
Order Forms & Menu – Two reusable order forms were included, along with a menu with spaces to write in the prices.
Play Money – A sheet of play money printed on heavy cardstock was provided for use in the restaurant. Pizza ain’t free, ya know!
Red & White Cloth Napkin – This traditional restaurant-style checkered cloth can serve as either a napkin, placemat, or tablecloth.
Hmmm… Decisions, decisions.
I hope that’s vegan pepperoni, Miss Chloe! 😉
Clearly they weren’t interested in putting any yucky veggies on their pizzas. 🙁
Thanks for taking care of our check, girls. 😉
While January’s Bramble Box didn’t really have any actual projects to complete, it was still a fun month. My girls love anything food-related so I knew they’d enjoy playing “pizzeria”. The materials were all pretty durable and should be able to withstand plenty of pretend play for days to come.
If you’d like to sign up, Bramble Box is currently offering new customers 30% off their first box or a single play box from their shop! Just use coupon code “Janblues” at checkout.
