The Products

lace play hedgehog

Imagine I can Lace and Play Hedgehog

Now my son is only 3 so i basically did the legwork for this.   Dylan added the eyes and I threaded all the parts up, once it was all put together he loved it!  Definitely a creative toy for kids!

dcorate your own duck

Decorate Your Own Rubber Duck

My son loves painting, therefore he loved the fun he had with this duck!  Painting definitely brings out his creative side and painting an object is definitely a good creative skill to learn!  Of course the duck didn’t turn out too good but my son had fun with it, maybe when he is older I will get him another one!

magic velvet

Melissa & Doug Magic Velvet Pattern Reveal Scenes

I was excited to see one of these in the box!  I totally forgot they existed, when I was a kid I used to love these little magic coloring sets, so much fun!  And they are easy to draw on, I like that all of the shapes are separated!

coloringpad

Jumbo Animal Colouring Pad

This is cute!  When I first looked at it, I thought it was a normal plain coloring book, but inside each page has pictures of different scenes and animals!

markers

10 Washable Markers

For the coloring book of course! I love when markers are washable, especially having a 3 year old running around with them!

bees

Bees and Wasps Book

My son absolutely loves this book!  Right now he is a little obsessed with yellow jackets and bees, he knows they sting and runs away from them.  We sat down and I showed him the book now every time he looks at it he says “oh no bees”, he loves looking at all the pictures!

The Fun!

Final Thoughts

I love the curation of Montubox, Everything is pretty much perfect for any child aged 4 to 9, the activities definitely help with different aspects of learning, plus the activities are super fun!

The bee book also came just in time for summer which is great!  I also love that most of the toys in this box are from Melissa & Doug, they have some really good toys and my son loves most of them!
