Let’s see what’s in my October 2016 Hoot for Kids box!
Everything was packed inside a cute purple box with the Hoot for Kids logo on top. (The box itself was a bit flimsy and shipped in a sturdier outer box to keep all its contents in tact.)
A peek inside!
An info sheet listed all of the items in the box, along with descriptions, ways to play, and the specific skills used/learned with each one.
The back of the info sheet included easy age/stage-appropriate activities to enjoy with your child while improving important developmental skills.
Crocodile Creek Make-A-Face Blocks ($15, Amazon) – These sturdy 2.5″ cardboard blocks are printed with colorful illustrations of various animal faces. Your child can mix and match them to create over 10 million unique faces! The blocks help to promote hand-eye coordination, improve fine motor skills, and stress the concept of cause and effect.
International Arrivals Petite Sweets Ice Creams Shoppe Scented Erasers ($7.40, Amazon) – I would have loved these adorable erasers when I was a kid. (Okay, I kinda love ’em now too.) The colorful cones are vanilla scented and can be taken apart into two separate pieces. Great for promoting fine motor, sensory, and strength skills.
Mudpuppy At the Zoo Play Scene ($10.08, Amazon) – I played with color forms sets all the time when I was little, so I’m excited to see if my girls enjoy these as much as I did. This set features a zoo-themed scene with over 30 reusable vinyl stickers.
Sea Life Stickers by Itsy Bitsy ($2, Amazon) – Teeny tiny sea life themed stickers featuring jellyfish, seahorses, whales, turtles, fish, crabs, and more. Stick ’em in coloring books, on drawings, journals, or anywhere that needs a little pop of cuteness. Their tiny size makes them ideal for practicing fine motor and visual motor/perceptual skills.
I wasn’t totally sure what to expect from Hoot for Kids, but I was really happy with the items they chose for my girls. Everything was age-appropriate and we’ll definitely make use of every single item. I really liked how they included additional activity ideas and tips along with the actual products as well. Overall, a great box! 🙂
