Good to Know: For every subscription purchased Tutu Royal donates a subscription to an adoption agency for another princess.
The information card told the theme this month: Butterfly Behavior. It explained the STEM princess characteristic of the month: Tenacity. It also listed each item in the box and had a small piece of literature about lepidopterists (scientists who study butterflies and moths) and an expert lepidopterist named M. Deane Bowers.
This month’s characteristic card is about tenacity. This card encourages your princess to focus on a time when they were tenacious and write about it. I thought this card was a good chance for self-reflection.
Perfectly Purple Princess Dress – $15.00?
My daughter loved her purple princess dress. It had short cap sleeves and lots of intricate details. There is a side zipper to help get it on and off. The sizing ran a bit small in my opinion so we are going to change that for next month.
Butterfly Barrette – $5.00?
The butterfly barrette was so sparkly and I thought fit the theme this month nicely. The purple coordinated with the dress and my daughter loves purple so she was delighted.
Flower Clip – $3.00?
This flower was attached to an alligator clip and stay in my daughter’s thin hair well. It also matched the dress so nicely.
Time for Kids: Butterflies! By Editors of TIME for Kids – $3.99
This book matched the butterfly theme and was an informative and well-photographed look at different kinds of butterflies. It taught about the butterfly life cycle as well. My daughter loves animals and was very interested in this book even though she’s not even four year old.
Two Dolls Bakery Butterfly Cookie – $4.00?
This lavender butterfly frosted sugar cookie was gobbled down immediately and it tasted just as good as it looked. This was a nice little treat to find in the box!
Verdict: My daughter absolutely flipped over this box and I was happy to see how much was included for the $20 price point. I am estimating the value of the box to be around $31 which I’m happy with. I like the idea that this box is mixing princess dress-up fun with some emphasis on education, STEM and confidence boosting literature. I also appreciate that with each subscription purchased Tutu Royal donates a subscription to an adoption agency. What a great way for us to feel like someone’s fairy godmother.
