The information card told the theme this month: Earthquakes and Elegance. It explained the STEM princess characteristic of the month: Elegance. It also listed each item in the box and had a brief piece of literature about earthquakes and a female seismologist named Lucy Jones who is known as the “Earthquake Lady.”
This month’s characteristic card is about elegance. This card encourages your princess to reflect on when they feel most elegant.
Rose Princess Dress – Value $25.00?
The dresses that Tutu Royal sends are beautiful and have many details that make them feel luxe. This month’s dress has gorgeous appliques on the bodice that dangle down past the waist. There is a sash that ties in the back and a zipper to get the gown on and off easily. The satin fabric is thick and soft.
Headband – Value $5.00?
The headband this month was wrapped in black to match the dress and had two deep red rosettes on top. Unlike some headbands that are too tight and squeeze the head tightly this one fit very well.
Time for Kids: Earthquakes! By Editors of TIME for Kids – Value $3.99
Each month Tutu Royal has sent a TIME for Kids book which goes along with the theme. These paperback books are filled with interesting facts and large photographs. My daughter has been getting more into nonfiction books because of Tutu Royal and for that, I’m so thankful. This book was very informative and showed the damage from large earthquakes, explained how earthquakes happen and discussed scientists who study earthquakes.
Kookies by Keirsten Mirror Cookie – Value $4.00?
This frosted cookie tasted as good as it looks. The shimmery silver cookie really did resemble a mirror, how cool! Tutu Royal had it double packaged in a sealed bag and bubble wrap to protect it in transit. We love that Tutu Royal sends a yummy edible treat each month.
Verdict: My daughter adores the Tutu Royal box and I was happy to see how much was included for the $30 (plus shipping) price point. I am estimating the value of the box to be around $38 which I’m very happy with. I like the idea that this box is mixing princess dress-up fun with an emphasis on education, STEM, and confidence boosting literature as well. I also appreciate that with each subscription purchased Tutu Royal donates a subscription to an adoption agency.
