Little Pnuts Special Delivery Fall 2015 Subscription Box Review - 1

Little Pnuts is a quarterly toy subscription box for children. They sends you the best in sustainably made, ecologically friendly, organic, and naturally made toys.

“In today’s society we seem to have taken for granted those simple childhood joys. With the “faster than a speeding bullet” advancement of technology, we have quickly moved away from the written letter, the signed card and the care package of books, gifts or toys.”

This month’s insert implies we have received the correct age group for our Abigail.  This Fall box theme is “Back to School”.  I like that each box includes a few milestones that we should see and expect in the near future.  I was hoping to see something about painting or coloring.  Abi is a little OCD with painting right now.  I don’t know if it’s just a phase or if she’s the next Georgia O’Keeffe.  If she could have her way, she’d be content to sit and paint/color for hours on end with a break or two for snacks.

Plan Toys – Fruit & Veggie Domino – Value:$19.99

My jaw dropped when I saw these!  Long story short, every time my father aka “G-Pa” is in town, we play a few rounds of Dominos! The last time he was here, William was adamant about playing a round with minimal assistance.  So, the next time G-Pa is here, I’ll be sure to break out this set for a friendly tournament.

Haba – Multi-color Quantities Arranging Game – Value: $19.99

This is Abi’s favorite toy/game this month.  She absolutely loves restacking and putting the pieces together in different combinations.  My only complaint is there isn’t a lid.  The pieces get everywhere in their play area. I also enjoy watching the kiddos play with this together without fighting, and if you have toddlers, you know what I mean. It’s a rare oddity.  For whatever reason, they actually help each other with this game and it makes playtime 10x better.

Djeco – Puzzle Duo Numbers – Value: $9.99

This was my favorite toy/game to watch the kiddos play.  William can count up to 30 without error on a good day.  Abigail can get up to the teens and then it’s incoherent. LOL!  I love everything about the artwork, how well made each puzzle piece is, how thick the material is, and that Abi can clearly see what she needs to count.  It’s just a joy to watch her play and practice.

HaPe – Numbers & Color Qubes – Value:$9.99

I’ve said this before, I’ll say it again…I hate this packaging, love the products.  I like my kiddos to open their boxes on their own.  After I’ve finished taking photos, I repackage everything, give them the box and let’m go to town.  I review their boxes by observing their reactions and watching what they naturally gravitate to.  I hate that I can’t let them open or even really attempt to open this on their own. The hard plastic has sharp edges and it literally goes to the recycle bin immediately.  It’s just too dangerous (in my opinion) to just hang around the house.  Now about the number qubes…super cute!  They remind me of the old school refrigerator magnets.  Even though they’re not learning triple digit numbers yet, I like that we can make most double and a good portion of triple digit numbers.

Verdict: This season of Little Pnuts had an estimated value of $60.00.  William and Abigail collectively enjoyed every game and I love getting items that we don’t see in stores locally. We didn’t receive a book this month, but I’m not bothered by it because the box was truly stuffed with awesomeness.

What did you think of this season’s Special Delivery?  Does packaging ever make or break a product for you? Chime in down below.

  1. I don’t mean to be mean, but I find this review misguiding. At first I was sooo happy to have found a box for my toddler. We used to have Googaroo, and Austin Lloyd, which were 35/40$ and this is the kind of box we would get. But they no longer exist ?
    The problem is that it is not clear enough that this box doesn’t cost $25, but $75. You pay in fact 25 a month, but only get a box every 3 months. So this box has a really low value, 60$ for the $75 that it costs.
    We have tried Citrus Lane, which used to be good and then just went spiraling down until it cancelled. I also tried Bluum but didn’t like at all the things we got.
    So if anyone knows of a good value toy box for toddlers I am all ears.
    Cheers

  2. This looks like a better value than citrus lane but with the same quality products, awesome

  3. Good job, Little Pnuts!

    Excellent curation and value here. The picks also seem age-appropriate. I like it. 🙂

    Great review, Celicia!

  4. Wow, I love this! Do you know if there are variations within an age group or does everyone get the same thing? I know this is the September box, but any chance you know if this is still available? I have a two year old and am always looking for some activities.
