This month’s theme is Gardener! We have received several boxes in March and April that have had a similar theme, and fortunately they have all been big hits with my seven-year-old. The box lid has the theme card pasted inside, and it lets you know everything that should be in the box.
Our first treat was this egg carton garden! This looks super fun! Soil pellets were provided, plus seeds for a “Tickle Me Plant,” which I’ve never heard of before. But it sounds awesome! We can’t wait to see it grow and find out what this tickling business is all about!
Also included were additional soil pellets and some larger pots for when the plants get too big for the egg carton.
I was super excited to see these garden tools in this package! My little one now has his own! This is a Sunny Patch Happy Giddy Trowel and Cultivator by Melissa and Doug. The retail for $4 each on Amazon.
Bramble Box also included a little background scene that my son can make a springtime picture on, and a sheet completely loaded with spring stickers for use on this background or elsewhere. Stickers are always a hit with kids!
Verdict: It’s another win this month with Bramble Box! It seems like every month my son really gets into playing with and exploring whatever theme they have sent, and that’s the whole idea. I think this month’s curation was very cohesive, and since I like gardening myself, I was thrilled with the theme. I doubt the value of all the items add up to $25, although they might, but with most of the kids’ subscription, I don’t think getting a bargain is the point. The point, to me at least, is to get the child interested in something, and to help facilitate exploration, discovery, education, and fun. Bramble Box succeeds in this, and they keep my son interested for a while. I think that’s a big accomplishment, and I’ve been very happy with them so far.
