My son, Fox is almost 2-years-old and very active. Let’s see what toys this month’s Green Piñata brought:

Haba Feeling and Touching – Retail Value $29.99

This game set is all about building your little ones cognitive, social, and emotional skills. There are two different ways that you can play with this set. The first way is to have your child identify each piece of food and match the pairs together. We used this game as a time to also practice our counting skills. The next way to play would be to add a piece of food into the cloth sheep and have your child identify it with their eyes closed simply by feel. This game is geared more towards older kids, but you can really make it into a game by giving a clover token to each player for every correct answer. Even though my son wasn’t able to play both games, he absolutely loved this set and thought the play food was amazing. This game set is something that I could see us using for many years!

Hape My Smart Car – Retail Value $19.99

I love these little sets since each toy comes with a matching storybook! This set is meant to build your child’s cognitive skills while showing a real-life situation via the story and toy set. We have been working on green means go and red means stop with my son so this set seemed like the perfect toy for us right now. He loved seeing the red stop sign and said stop right away. Cars are always a hit in my house so it was an added bonus that this set comes with this awesome wooden car that really gets going on a hardwood floor.

I realized after I took this picture that we put this puzzle together incorrectly the first time! That is ok though because we had a ton of fun with this toy! This is meant to help your child build their fine motor and cognitive skills, plus it is a great color matching toy. My son loves shapes and blocks so this was an instant hit even though it was a bit on the more challenging side.

Haba On the Farm Threading Set – Retail Value $31.95

This threading set is amazing! Each wooden piece matches the puzzle sets so you will set up each puzzle, and then your little one can match it by threading the wooden pieces. This is a great toy to help your child build their hand-eye coordination, something we are always working on. It is also a great way to help them build their fine motor and cognitive skills. My son loves animals and puzzles so he jumped right into this game set with so much focus.

Here is an action shot of Fox playing with all of his cool new toys!

Verdict: Green Piñata is a great way to bring new toys to your house each month to help keep your child’s attention. I know my son tends to grow out of or forget toys over time, which means we end up accumulating so much stuff that he doesn’t even use. Green Pinata eliminates any questions you might have about a toy by allowing you to test new toys each month, let your little one play with them, keep what you like at a discount, or send anything back for a fresh new box each month! I loved this month’s curation as we move towards my son’s 2nd birthday, the toys seemed a bit more mature and required more attention. I can’t wait to see what next month has to bring as he continues to grow in a big way! 

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? Each box is customized to your child’s age, so you might not get this exact box. You can order today to get a February box!

Coupon – Save 50% off your first month with code MYSUBSCRIPTIONADDICTION50. Or, save 20% off any gift subscription with code PINATA20

Value Breakdown: This box costs me $24.99, but I received $99.92 worth of toys. I am able to keep the toys as long as I’d like and returning them is free of charge! It is also important to note that toys can be purchased for “10% off its Amazon list price. Please send us an email at [email protected] with the name of the toy you’d like to purchase.” You will get a discount if a toy you received and would like to keep was gently used.

  1. These look like great toys except for the book. It is seriously a book about a girl who has car trouble and has to call her friend, a boy, to bring his tools and help her?! Ugh!

    I am extremely sensitive to all the gender bias in children’s books and this one really takes the cake. We can’t expect the next generation to do better if these are the ideas we ingrain in them while they are still toddlers.

    Rant done, lol. Please don’t read your child this book. Better yet – read your child this book but swap the names and genders. 🙂

    • Thanks for your post!

  2. Oh my goodness your son is so cute!! All of these toys look so nice & quality. Great review

    • Thank you! He is really loving this month’s box!
