First Impressions

This month there was a familiar toy and some new ones that I knew would be exciting to my kids. As usual, I was excited to see what they thought!

What's Inside This Box

 

Each box comes with a one-page insert with photos of the items on the front and a brief description with their values on the back. It also includes contact information along with a disclaimer about how it is the responsibility of the adult to determine whether the items included are appropriate for the child. As someone with a Special Education background, I love that they include this since every child is unique and responds to various stimuli in different ways! There are some items that may not be appropriate for every child depending on those needs.

They also include a nice little motivational card for us. 

Sensory Body Sock - Listed Value $29.00 (example found here for $26.99)

 

The main item in our box this month was this bright green sensory body sock which is meant to provide soothing, deep pressure input. It creates compression and resistance around the body which can be very calming for children with specific sensory needs. While my children do not have such needs, they certainly thought it was cool, and I could definitely see how it would still be calming to them (like a hug) and help them with spatial awareness skills. This is a size small, but if you swipe through, you can see that it fit each of my children, even my 7-year-old daughter who is very tall for her age, although it was a tighter fit for her. I could see the boys crawling inside of this to use it as a little cave or as my older son said, so that they can pretend to be a starfish!

Meteor Monster by Mad Mattr - Listed Value $9.99 (found here for $6.99)

 

This plastic meteor contained one surprise stretchy monster and a surprise color packet of Mad Mattr, which is a fun, soft sand-dough similar to Kinetic sand. The idea is to take your monster and hide it inside one half of the meteor under the dough, then you flip it and watch as your monster emerges. My kids thought it was super cool and I thought it was a really fun idea, too!

The monster slowly emerges and the dough is just fun to manipulate with your hands. It also takes a little bit of effort to get your monster to stick inside the ball of dough!

Fuzz'd Slap Bracelet by Watchitude - Retail Value $10.00

 

This slap bracelet is fun and super fuzzy making it a great little silent fidget! The soft faux fur is really calming to play with, and I think the rainbow colors add a whole visual sensory aspect to it that is even more relaxing. Plus, it's just fun! The thick fur makes it comfortable to wear, too because it is nice and soft against your wrist.

Stretchy Mice and Cheese by Play Visions - Retail Value $7.99

 

This is a toy that we received a very long time ago and it was as much of a hit now as it was then. This cheese is super stretchy and soft, as are the mice and it is filled with holes so that you can stuff the mice inside of it and pull them out. Not only is it fun and exciting for kids, but it is greater for fine motor skills and hand strengthening as they try to stick the mice inside and then extract them. You can also simply squeeze and squish the big block of cheese, too. Some think it's a little gross, but my kids think it's cool!

Atomic Nee Doh by Schylling - Retail Value $4.00 (pack of three found here for $12.00) 

 

We have received other products from Nee Doh before and they are always unique and fun! This one is pretty cool with the way the inside ball squeezes out and changes color. It's another great hand-strengthening fidget that is also fun to explore visually since it changes each time you squeeze it.

Value - Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $42.00 + shipping (Save with longer subscriptions)

ACTIVE DEAL: Limited Time Only! Save 10% off your first box!
CODE: WELCOME

The total retail value of the five items we received came to about $57.98 using a mix of listed and found values. I think that's a pretty good value since it is almost $16 over the cost of this box. Although, I don't think it would have hurt to have one more little item thrown in there since the bulk of that is the body sock!

Key Takeaways

This box is great for any child, but this month I think that the body sock could make it especially exciting to a child with sensory processing issues. I have seen how much a body sock can calm a child before, and it's a great sensory tool to have at your disposal! As for the other items, they offer some great sensory input, too, but mostly, they are just plain fun!

I am a homeschooling mother of four; 3 boys and 1 girl. My youngest son was just born in January 2022, my other boys are 4 and 6, and my daughter is 7. I am a former educator and have taught both elementary art and Special Education.

I have been reviewing boxes for MSA since January 2018 and have reviewed everything from activity and clothing boxes for kids to clothing, beauty, and pampering boxes for women. I have also reviewed boxes focused on home goods and even some men's boxes with the help of my husband! 

I love to discover new brands and try new things!

Still haven’t bought it because it’s such a pricey box with shipping but I love reading your reviews. My daughter would definitely be too big for the body sock but it’s such a great concept. All the other toys would’ve been a hit in my house. Thank you for sharing this review!

Thanks for reading, Lauren! It is tough since it’s on the pricier end, but it’s so much fun – it’s definitely one I missed when we took a break from it!

Oh my gosh, I found one of those mice at my brother’s house several years ago and I decided to keep it because it made me giggle so much. Now I know where I can buy more, thanks!
