We were recently asked if we fancied trying some new subscription boxes for children. The chance to amuse the kids for a bit to stop them fighting? Of course I’m going to say yes! The boxes are from My Pocket Money Toy and contain a range of fun toys and books, some educational and STEM and aimed at the age range you choose when ordering.
The lovely lady with the idea behind the boxes – Shirley – is a parent like a lot of us who struggled to find really good quality, affordable and educational toys and so the idea for My Pocket Money Toy was born.
My Pocket Money Toy was founded to solve two problems; a lack of time (busy working parents), and a lack of good quality toys in local shops. The idea for toys in a subscription box is not a new one but it has taken some time to turn the idea in to reality. The boxes have been spurred on by a genuine love of subscription boxes, why wouldn’t we want one a great one for our children!
There are several options available tailored to your childrens ages. You can choose from one offs:
Or go for a subscription of 3 months/6months/1 year and get great value for money.
These options can be easily chosen when ordering, have the parcel delivered with your childs name on, my kids loved that theirs were directly addressed to them and you have the option of having a gift message too.
As my children are 4 and 7 I received the 3-5 girl box and the 6-7 boy box. They came well packaged in a shoe box sized cardboard box with lovely iridescent shredded plastic to keep the toys safe.
As you can see the children were really excited about opening them up to see what they had. The items were nicely wrapped in tissue paper which made it more fun and exciting for them to open.
In the girls 3-5 box:
- Make Believe sticker colouring book
- Old Macdonald Lotto
- Pony Mosaic craft
- Chick finger puppet
In the boys 6-7 box:
- Wordsearch pad
- Story cards
- Ogosoft Ball
Both boxes also included a lovely little card welcoming them to their box and a small colouring sheet.
My children were really pleased with their boxes, my son particularly liked the wordsearch pad, his little eyes lit up when he saw it and he disappeared off to his room to play with it as soon as I’d taken the photos!
My daughter was amazed with the mosaic pony and had great fun putting the little pieces onto the picture.
The boxes also come with a Spectacular Stamp Book to collect a stamp each month towards a free toy.
Overall we thought these boxes were brilliant, a great mix of fun and education with the excitement of opening a ‘present’. They’d be fab for Birthdays/Christmas or for family members who don’t live nearby as well as for your own children.
