What is Toybox?

“Toybox is a monthly subscription of select toys for kids aged 4 – 11. We are all about bringing new excitement to playtime, which is why each month brings a new theme of toys that are kid approved for fun.The benefits of what PLAY does for a child are endless – we really want kids to unplug and play!  One box at a time we feel we can help with our curated boxes that focus on skill sets.  They grow and learn all while having fun!”

April’s theme for the box was Earth Day. Their mini info card included some tips on how you can make an impact and Earth facts. This month’s box was curated with the focus on refining fine motor skills in the hands, fingers, and wrist!

Earth Stress Ball – This is a mini globe in squishy ball form so that kids can safely play with it and learn about geography!

Wooden Toppling Towers – This a mini set of JENGA in awesome colors. I think this is a great inclusion because kids love building things and then destroying them… at least I did when I was a kid >:D (and I still do, haha) Even though the point of Jenga is to keep the tower from falling over… 😄

Love the color choices.

Solar Dinosaur Fossil – It changes colors! This is a great project to do with your kid because it’s so hands-on and it has a super cool result. You get to play with clay, put it in the dinosaur mold, make your own dinosaur, and then watch it change colors in the sun. Totally appropriate for summer break!

The instructions.

Micro Flight Kite – Aww, this is really cute. Sometimes full-size kites can be hard for a kid to anchor and control so enter this micro kite that’s shaped like a bee! Plus, bees are cool.

Overall enjoyment: I think most kids would have fun going through all of these toys; I mean, how can you go wrong with a squishy ball, a dinosaur-related activity, brightly colored blocks, and a bee kite? My favorite item would definitely have to be the wooden toppling towers just because adults can play with them too and not feel too immature. 😉 Jenga is a skill! Another plus is that everything is multi-use (except maybe the fossil kit) so you can add to your kid’s ever-growing pile of toys! And of course, everything included is great for a boy or a girl and I can tell you that I would have had fun with this box as a kid and I know my brother would have too. We would have driven our parents crazy throwing that ball against the wall and making repeated *thunks*. :p
