BabbaBox - Review and Giveaway

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all of you who entered. Congrats to Winner, Karen!!

I got to review one BabbaBox and you can win one too! Check out the giveaway at the end of the post.
BabbaCo is a subscription based arts, crafts and learning activity box for kids between the ages of 3 and 6. Boxes are delivered at your doorsteps filled with projects, activities, books, digital downloads and online content. Each delivery is a theme-based box with ALL the materials necessary plus know-how content to really engage with kids. Can’t get much easier than that. No thinking. No shopping. No leftovers. You can subscribe to it monthly, quarterly or annually.
For my review, I received a box that was a “You Are What You Eat” theme. My 4 year-old was VERY excited to open the box and check out the contents. Infact she pulled everything out even before I took a photo of the box and it's contents.
In every BabbaBox there are items to help children:  Create, Explore, Story Tell, and Connect.  
Our box included supplies to:
  • Create - a shopping list and a power placemat - Sort lots of yummy foods into five food groups.
  • Explore - Use your very own measuring cups to cook some delicious, good for you recipes.
  • Story Tell - Read "I will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato" in which Charlie uses his imagination to convince his picky eater sister Lola, to try new foods.
  • Connect - Ziggy's Plate.
The first activity she wanted to work on was creating the shopping list. Everything required for it including the scissors, glue and a detailed instruction was there in the box.
 After my daughter cut the food paper sheets, I talked to her about the five food groups. And we played by placing them on the appropriate colored felts.
 Next she finished the process of putting the shopping list folder together. She loved all of the glueing and cutting, though had to help her with cutting the felt.
 Here is the finished shopping list! We have been using it to show what she ate that day and whether all the five food groups have been included are not. I love that all of this fits nicely inside the clear pocket.
Next activity was a hit too and she really loved coloring the canvas placemat.
Now that both the activities are complete, we plan on making a meal together using the measuring cups next! I love the learning process that takes place doing everyday activities, like cooking.
I really loved this concept. I think it will even be perfect as a Birthday gift. The ability to sit down and do something crafty and fun with your kids without having to hunt down all of the supplies is awesome. And the best part is the learning aspect of it which makes it very unique from other subscription based activity boxes out there. I love the concept of having a theme each month to keep the activities fun and interesting for kids.
With everything that is included in your Babbabox every month you are definitely getting your money’s worth, and your child has something special to look forward to every month. 

And you can too get a box too! BabbaCo is going to give away one month membership to one of the Putti's World readers! I’m so excited for you. There’s a few ways you can win this membership, just use the Rafflecopter gadget below. Good luck! The giveaway will end on August 26th.
