Tangled Water Bottle

“Life is an adventure” is a great daily reminder to have! We seem to always be in need of water bottles at my house, and having a fun character on them is always a plus! The top of this one slides to be a straw so it is easy for your little one to use. There is a pink strap that can be used to hold the water bottle in your hand or around your neck for safe keeping, but you can also remove it if the strap just doesn’t work for you.

Brave.Strong.True Backpack with Hair Accessories

This backpack reminds me of something I would have had with me at all times when I was a little girl! The backpack is clear so that you can see your favorite princess designs on the front, that you can see what fun items you have inside, and it makes for easy cleaning in case anything spills (something every Mom thinks about!). The straps are adjustable so it will grow with your little princess over the years.

Inside the backpack are these little hair accessories! There are hair ties, hair clips, a mirror, and a comb. I am going to save this little set for my daughter for when she can really enjoy some Mommy, Daughter hair time!

Northwest Disney Princess Palace Pets ‘I Love Animals’ Printed Fleece Throw – Retail Value $7.99

This throw is so big at 46″ x 60″ and oh so soft! This fleece throw is perfect to use for traveling or to have downstairs for some couch cuddle time. It is big enough for me to use, which is a plus but is perfect for your little one. The original Beauty and the Beast came out when I was a little girl so Belle is one of my favorites, another plus!

Disney Princess Sportpack

This sports pack is so cute with all of the classic princesses on it! The strings allow you to pull the backpack closed tightly to keep all of your belongings safe. Unfortunately, the straps aren’t adjustable so this might be best for someone a bit older. I might gift this to our neighbor who I know will love toting this around with her to school.

Believe In Yourself Shirt

I love the saying on this shirt, “Believe in Yourself.” This is such a great reminder to give to all children! I love the bold green color that really allows the collection of princesses to pop. I see Merida right up in the front there, she is the best!

Swim Goggles

Goggles are the perfect item to receive in the summer! I love seeing Cinderella and Belle on the front. The straps are adjustable so they will grow with your little one. I am going to save these for next summer when we will be introducing our little one to her first summer vacation.

Lastly, this box converts to show Disney Princesses that you can color:

Verdict: I couldn’t find prices for most of the items, but for 6 items at $30 a box, that’s $5 an item. I think that is a wonderful value so official Disney products, plus you get that awesome box to color and put on display. While my daughter isn’t ready for many of these items, I am so excited to start a little princess stash for her to dive into when she’s older. Plus, these are all things that I truly love and would have used on a daily basis when I was little.

  1. Pley is a terrible subscription company. First, they ship boxes and don’t give you the tracking info nor do you get an email that it’s been shipped, nor does it show in your account online. Our first box we were shipped was missing half of what should have been inside, and it took them almost 3 weeks to send the replacement.

    I was charged Sept 05 and I decided to cancel because I was just annoyed with their shipping practices. Normally if you’ve already paid for something they’ll ship you your last order. But NO, what they decided to do, since i canceled was to ship my box in November. Ok that makes sense. I emailed them in September and they said they would ship it out then. I emailed them again Oct 28 because I hadn’t received it. No answer. I emailed them again today but I’ve decided to dispute the charge with my credit card company.

    I would avoid this company at all costs.

  2. Did you actually get your refund? They told me they would cancel my subscription and refund my last payment but I haven’t gotten a refund. I even got a confirmation email that the refund was coming but when I ask them about it now they say the refund was not approved. It’s such a shame because my daughter got and loved this box for a year and now they are being shady. I just want my $30 back so I can take my daughter to the Disney store to pick something out.

  3. I also did not receive the box as shown. It was missing the blanket and hair accessories backpack. Instead I received a tiny plush cinderella key chain. Not an equivalent swap. I emailed them and their response was that the boxes are a mystery and all different. They then thanked me for providing feedback. They didn’t even address my question. I feel like this is a scam and am going to cancel.

  4. Just warning people who might be looking to buy this box, they “graduated” my child to a different box without my permission. So essentially, I paid for something and received something else. Their response was to congratulate me
    That my child had progressed. Ummm, really? They said I should’ve received an email which I didn’t receive and offered to do nothing. I’m never buying anything from Pley again.

    • Yes and I did not see anything about it on the website that they will change you to a different box. They emailed back that they are refunding me though. It’s still very shady, I’m surprised Disney would partner with them. So they only have 5 princess boxes and then they switch you basically. When you renew your sub they don’t tell you they don’t have enough boxes to fulfill the renewal.

      • This happened to me too. They “graduated” my daughter to Hot Wheels after we received only one box in our three box subscription. When I complained, they said they reserved the right to do this based on low inventory, but luckily they agreed to refund our money for the two remaining boxes. However, they seem to still be allowing new customers to sign up for the princess boxes. Very shady. Our whole experience with this has been a huge disappointment.

  5. I got this box in May and July. The July one had no blanket though. When I emailed they gave me a refund for July and said I have received all the princess boxes and they were going to switch us to nat geo boxes. Or I could choose hot wheels instead. Are they not making any more boxes? I was under the impression it was a new princess every other month. I’m not interested in nat geo or hot wheels. I prepaid this sub.

  6. This is the box we received today as the July 2018 box minus the blanket and little hair accessorie kit. Without those two items I felt this box was seriously lacking for 29.99.

    • Mine was the same way and I got it today!!

  7. This is not the box my daughter received for May. She recieved a Merida themed box. Perhaps this is what she can expect in her July box when it finally arrives?

    • My daughter did receive her July box, but it also was not this box. She received the Tangled/Rapunzel themed box instead. strange.

  8. A good collection of items! My daughter is only 2 so not old enough for the Princess boxes yet, however this box has quite a few items she would love (water bottle, backpack, hair supplies, blanket – and of course coloring the box!)

    • I agree! My son is two and while I didn’t think he would be interested in some items, he kept asking to see things.

  9. What a great box!! Very cool that you get these and are saving for her.

    • Thanks for your post! I think it will be fun to go through everything with her eventually, will bring back memories for sure!
