This month’s theme is Ice Cream Parlor! The inside lid of every Bramble Box has an info card like this, detailing the items inside. This month’s box can also be turned into a little stand for your child’s ice cream shop! It makes me so happy when the boxes get re-used!
This month’s box was chock full of props! Pictured here are two paper hats for serving ice cream (at the bottom), and they are ADORABLE on the kids. There’s an ice cream themed sticker book at the top left to decorate the hats, too! Also in this picture is a menu and some play money.
These are the props for actually making the ice cream. There are two cups with lids, three cones, two spoons, and a jar of sprinkles. I actually took the picture before I realized that one of the cups was full of pom-poms for the ice cream scoops! Every flavor you can imagine!

It also makes me really happy when children’s subscription boxes include books! This one was a little young for my 7-year-old, but he still loved reading it to my husband right away! Plus it got 5 stars on Amazon! Here’s their synopsis:
Gerald is careful. Piggie is not.
Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can.
Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to.
Gerald and Piggie are best friends.
The verdict: Last month, Bramble Box was full of crafts to go along with its “World Traveler” theme. This month, they went back to their usual format of providing play props. Last month’s crafts were fun, but as much as we love crafts, I think Bramble Box Props does something that no other childrens’ subscription service does. They set up a play scenario and provide all the props necessary to play that role, and they do it for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this subscription for children who get really interested in playing roles like “house” or “grocery store” or “veterinarian.” My 7-year-old has always been that way, and he really loves this subscription!
