My Pretend Place Craft Subscription Box Review – May 2015 - Box

My Pretend Place Craft Subscription Box Review – May 2015 - Extras

This month’s craft is ninja gear! Nunchucks and headbands! On the left are the instructions, which are always pretty clear, but I never find their graphics all that helpful. In the upper right is a note to the ninjas with their mission. I love this regular inclusion because it gets the kids into pretend play mode right away. Also pictured is a thank you note, plus a handle and some stickers if you want to convert your box into a suitcase for all your goodies!

These were all the supplies that were included this month to finish our projects. We didn’t even have to supply scissors!

My Pretend Place Craft Subscription Box Review – May 2015 - Ninja Gear

Here’s my seven-year-old’s finished products! I think they turned out great! They were both very easy to make. The only thing I had to help him with was tying the knots in the rope in the nunchucks. I completely love his headband! He only used the blue marker, but I think that’s a nice effect. He drew an epic four-paneled mural of himself and his brother (as ninjas) going through training and working their way through the criminals to finally defeat the crime boss! How cool is that?

The verdict: This is the third box we’ve received from My Pretend Place Crafts, and it ws finally a fun, seamless experience with everything exactly as they promised it would be. I think they may have finally worked all the kinks out. Fingers crossed! My seven-year-old really liked making these, and I think the kids will enjoy playing with them for quite a while. I like it when projects are fun to do, but I love it when the end product is also fun to have!

What do you think of My Pretend Place’s crafts offering?

  1. I’m always impressed by these boxes! They look pretty fun, and even though this was the crafts box it’s still dress up stuff. I might have to get a subscription for my nieces =)

    Do you prefer the craft or dress up box better?
