Bramble Box Review And ~~Giveaway~~

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**

Each pretend play prop box is designed to encourage kids to step into a make-believe world while building skills in essential development areas, including social and emotional, language, problem solving and gross and fine motor skills.

Each Bramble Box is lovingly curated and hand-packed by me in my home (my basement is like a kid's creative wonderland). We try and go a step further by using 100% recycled mailers to package up our boxes and we also strive to use biodegradable or recyclable materials within our internal packaging. As a small business we try to support other local and small businesses whenever we can!

We have donated boxes to local organizations, schools and home-schooling groups and I hope we can increase our donations in the future to give back to our local community. I really want this venture to benefit as many kids as possible.

When I was a kid (oh so many years ago,) my favorite toys to play with were the ones where I could use my imagination.  My siblings and I use to play grocery store.  We had a small kitchen set, and my mom would give us coupons to use as money.   It was a lot of fun, and I still play those games with my kids now!!

When I heard about Bramble Box, I was very intrigued.  These are simple items put together to help your children build their imagination while having fun.  

I was sent two boxes to review; Ice Cream Shop Pretend Play Kit, and a World Traveler Pretend Play Kit

We all scream for ice cream! This super cute, hand-made ice cream store has all the bits and pieces to set up and sell you very own pretend play ice cream. As an added bonus, it provides great practice for those reading. writing and math skills.

Pack your suitcase and explore the world with Bramble Box. Our World Traveler box focuses on geography and fine motor skills while learning about the world. This kit contains: 

Passport - An international trip wouldn't be the same with your very own passport and country stickers.

World Map.

Suitcase - Ok. So it's actually the box, but it transforms into a suitcase. We love to find ways to re-purpose and reuse our boxes.

Three crafts from around the world; Japanese windsocks, Mexican noisemakers and a German Alpine hat. Have siblings? There are enough materials to make two noisemakers, two windsocks and one hat, for a fight free experience.

Extra stickers - Because kids love stickers and they can be used to decorate the suitcase.

Airline tickets - Your ticket to pretend airport play

I was very impressed with the items that came in both boxes.  Doug grabbed the World Traveler box, and pretended he was going on a plane with his suitcase.  He threw a couple other toys in there for the trip, and of course some snacks!!

Ben had a lot of fun with the Ice Cream box.  He made everyone an Ice Cream cone, and then asked if we could turn them into Christmas Ornaments.  I said that was a great idea!!

If your kids love arts and crafts, and fun imagination play, then Bramble Box is for them!!  There are many different boxes to choose from including Post Office, Gardner, and even Doctor!!

Considering this is the season of giving, would you like to win the same boxes I was sent for your little one??  Bramble would like to give one lucky reader both boxes!!  Pretty cool huh!!

Enter using the rafflecopter form below and good luck!!
