Bramble Box Props Subscription Box Review October 2015 - info

This month’s theme is “Wizardry!” My seven-year-old was totally excited about this theme. The inside lid of every Bramble Box has an info card like the one pictured above, detailing the items inside.

This is a new feature this month – an activity book! It explains how to make the most of everything in the box.

Here’s a peek inside the activity book. I hope this trend continues! I have found that, generally speaking, the nicer the printed materials in a kid box, the higher quality the subscription is. It’s just a rule of thumb, but regardless of whether it’s true for each and every box or not, a nice booklet sure does make figuring out all the content easier.

The first thing every good wizard needs is a hat! This is the template they sent for making one (scissors are mine, I had to weigh down the laminated paper since it was curling).

If a Wizard wants to look totally smashing in his hat, he needs a good cape. This is the one we were sent.

These are the other supplies that were sent this month.

These are my little wizard’s completed hat and magic wand. They turned out really cute! The adhesive stars also really stick well.

And this is the matching cape! Stars all around! My son actually looked really cute in all his wizard gear. The additional supplies were not for crafts, but are props for playing. There were some test tubes, color tabs, water crystals, fizzy tabs… You know, wizard stuff. Bramble Box sends a good mix of crafts, props, and activities.

The verdict: My seven-year-old son loves Bramble Box! I especially loved this month’s upgrade of printed materials. It really makes helping him out so much easier when I can clearly read what he’s supposed to be doing. This month’s theme was so much fun!

  1. Am I the only one it bothers that they stuck a totally incorrect and unnecessary apostrophe in the printed materials?

    “Wizard’s use magic wands…” Eek.

    On another note, my sister’s kids will soon be the right age for some of these types of subscriptions. They might make better gifts than the old standby of Toys R Us gift cards (they live out of state so any gift involves shipping).
