Every Boodle Box comes with an information card, detailing the included items for that month.

 The Boodle Box Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Cupcake

Good Earth Beauty Cupcake Wipes – 10 mini wipes, value: $2.75

NPW Gifts Naughty But Nice Cupcake Hand Cream – .61 fl oz, value: $9.99

This hand cream definitely smells like cupcakes and these are such cute gifts to pair together!

The Boodle Box Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Strawberries

Hard Candy Kaleyedoscope Baked Eye Shadow Duo in “Daydream” – value: $6

Strawberry Sponge Sleep-In Curlers – 6-pack, value: $8.59

I don’t know how many pre-teen girls use sleep curlers these days, but these curlers are actually really cute – especially in the photos of them being used on Strawberry Curls’s website.

The Boodle Box Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Keychain

Neon Beaded Bracelets with Rhinestones – value: $24 (for the set of 4)

Gama Go Cupcake Key Cover – value: $1.16

Marina’s Closet Lilly Fabric Keychain – value: $6

Please note that they didn’t list where to find these specific bracelets on Etsy, so I just linked to a very similar item listing. They are definitely true neon and I can tell they’d light up under black lights. Also, they’re really well made – the beads feel almost rubberized and the elastic string feels pretty strong, too.

I think this keychain/key cap set is my favorite item in this box. I love how cute they are and even if I don’t end up using them myself, I know my little sister-in-law will love them!

Verdict: I love this Boodle Box – I think all the items go together very cohesively and everything seems to be well made/packaged. This whole box feels like a little gift basket, which I think makes it a success. As far as value goes, everything adds up to about $58.50! Anytime a box is more than double the cost, I’m happy!

What do you think of this month’s Boodle Box? Do you think a girl in your life would love something like this?

  1. Is it weird that I kinda want all this stuff for myself? TOO CUTE!

  2. Wow, signed my 9-on-Monday year old up for a whole year based on this review. She will be over the moon for this box!

  3. This is super cute! I am going to sign up today 🙂

  4. This box is adorable! It’s much nicer than the sub I had for my youngest daughter (almost 10) from CandiGirl by Lip Factory (it went offline for a revamp and this sub really ups the ante for a relaunch!). The quality and theme are much better comparatively speaking. I can see these items actually being used versus opened and tossed into a corner of the bedroom.

  5. Love love love!
    Think I may subscribe to this to pick up random gifts for my nieces and neighbors.

  6. My 9 and 12 year olds both love using sleep curlers! Having long, straight hair, they love waking up with curls and waves.

  7. Liz, do you know if this is for the younger or older age grouping? it seems perfect for my girls, but i’mnot sure which box to subscribe to

    • Heather – that was the older box (Boodle Two – Ages 11+) …picture of the younger box in the comment below by Jennifer – or you can check out reviews on our facebook page and website! or

  8. I reviewed the Boodle Box 1 for ages 5-10 this month and it was perfect for my 8 year old.
