Bramble Box, who kindly sent me this box to review, provides creative play kits containing dramatic play materials and activities. Educational and fun, Bramble Boxes promote free play. Every box contains all the materials you need and a little inspiration – all you have to add is imagination. Boxes are designed for children age 3 – 8, but could be enjoyed by a variety of ages of children over age 3. Since the activities are open ended, kids can use them in a way that best suits their play level.
Bramble Box ships via USPS Priority Mail and took just a few days to arrive. If you sign up before midnight on the 4th of the month, then we will ship your first crate from Pennsylvania by the 15th of that month.
I couldn’t remember exactly what Bramble Box was all about and when I saw the word “Props” on the box I was expecting like threatre props or something. I was way off base though!
The December 2014 Bramble Box theme was “Post Office”. The box included both a listing of the contents included, as well as, a sheet with activity ideas. It even provided instructions on how to turn your box into a little mailbox!
~Mail Bag & Vest: As you can imagine, my kids are pretty familiar with the mailman around here ;). Only our mailman doesn’t wear a uniform. I think we have a contract mailman or something? I don’t know. Anyway, L was more than happy to model this vest for me and I am planning on leaving it by the door so WB can put it on when he picks up the packages off the porch.
~Envelopes, Crayons & Notepad: I forgot to take a picture of the notepad, but it was included, I swear. Kids can use these to “mail” letters to family and friends and you can use it to send letters for your little one too. L is really into reading and I am thinking that this would be a fun way to practice both reading and writing.
~Sticks & “Stamps”: Also included in the box are stickers and stamps to decorate your letters with! And the pretend stamps? SO CUTE! I love them!
~Laminated “My Family’s Names”: I was a tad confused by this at first, but the I realized that, depending on the age of your little one, they might not know who to spell names or who to address them too! So you can write names down for them on this and then wipe off and write more names for them.
I didn’t do a cost breakdown on this box, but I thought it was a really fun one for little ones. I loved how open-ended it was and really did think that it would work for a variety of ages. Anything that encourages writing and being creative is a win!
