My Pretend Place Subscription Box Review – Feb 2015
My Pretend Place is a subscription service for children, offering both a quarterly subscription of costumes and theme-related items, and a monthly craft subscription. We received the quarterly costume package in January, which was an astronaut costume and space goodies! It turns out that on the months you don’t receive your quarterly package, they still send out little goody boxes to the kids! This is a review of their in-between / extras box for February.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: My Pretend Place
The Cost: $50 per quarter, shipping included
The Products: Every quarter, My Pretend Place sends a dress-up package that centers on a theme and includes a costume, plus books, crafts, activities, and even food! PLUS, in the months that there is no quarterly box, they send little goody boxes with activities and treats!
Ships to: US only
Ships via: Fed Ex
This month we received two little extras to keep our astronaut theme going strong. The first was this suggested activity, which involves painting rocks, hiding them around the yard, and then coming up with an imaginative “report” that describes the zany types of rocks on this strange planet (the backyard). It has been raining so much here lately we haven’t had much chance to try it, but now that daylight savings is back in effect, I think we will probably give it a try pretty soon!
We also got this giant sheet of space stickers!
And a poster to stick them on!
Here’s our finished poster! I am very proud that my seven-year-old was able to put all the planets on their correct orbits, but I couldn’t convince him to not stick all the stickers on the poster. Therefore, it is pretty inaccurate, and I am pleased to report that there is, in fact, not asteroid headed straight for Earth-like this poster might lead you to believe!
Verdict: Making the poster was just silly fun, and the activity looks like a great way to keep one’s child interested in playing with all their goodies from the January box. I already thought the value of the My Pretend Place subscription was great, and considering these “in-between” packages do not cost anything additional, the value just seems to keep getting better!
