<![CDATA[Do your kids love getting mail? Mine do, just like their mama! When I think of ways to entertain my kids, I try to find new ideas and fun products they haven't seen already hundreds of times at the store. Recently, Mom 'N Tot Box sent me their June Sibling Box for my boys and we had SO much fun opening our box and exploring all of the items! I also LOVED that they offer an option of a sibling box because I have two little ones (ages 2 and 4) and it's important for me to make sure they both get to have fun. Mom 'N Tot box included a nice variety of items for learning, play, and more! Each item is hand selected from small businesses and made in the US. A variety of items is then placed into a box that fits either single child or siblings up to age 4 and mailed out monthly. You can choose from a one month or three month subscription.
1. Medi Buddy First Aid Kit by Me4kidz
The first item we opened was a medi buddy first aid kit by me4Kidz, containing a variety of special kid-friendly bandages, ointment, stickers and more. It’s a cute little kit that fits comfortably into your diaper bag, purse, or car which is perfect for on the go! My youngest LOVED the cute puppy on the packaging! The medi buddy kit retails for $4.99. Learn more about me4kidz and check out their other fun products at: www.me4kidz.com and follow them on Instagram!
2. U. S. Wood Toys: Car & Driver:
This cute little wooden car comes with a wooden driver that your kids can play with in or out of the car. So cute and fun for both toddlers and preschoolers! Andrew and Aidan both love playing with this cute car every day! U.S. Wood Toys are cute, affordable, fun and unique Waldorf inspired wooden toys made in the Shenandoah Valley by the master craftsman, Patrick Donovan. This car and driver toy retails for just $10! You can find more about U.S. Wood Toys and shop cute toys at www.etsy.com/shop/uswoodtoys and follow them on Instagram!
3. Spiderman Peglets Peg Doll:
What a coincidence that we received Spiderman of all characters since Andrew LOVES Spiderman! And oh my goodness, these peg dolls are absolutely ADORABLE! These peg dolls are hand painted here in Utah. You can check out Peglets on Facebook or Instagram to learn more (and I highly recommend checking out their Instagram feed—so much cuteness!). Of course, both boys LOVED this one! The Spiderman Peglets doll retains for $12.
4. Emotion Cards by Haley_Sez:
This cute little kit has several cards, one for each emotion to help teach little ones about their feelings. The illustrations are cute and it makes for fun prompts to ask your kids to act out each of the emotions that will not only be fun for playtime, but also help them identify with their feelings even more. It’s interesting to see their own adaptation of each one and what it means to them! Haley_Sez set out on a mission to help kids of all ages connect with the wisdom of their inner child through creativity, humor, and play. This card set comes on a ring to keep them all together and retails for $7. Learn more about Haley_Sez at www.etsy.com/shop/haley_sez and follow them on Instagram.
5. Facial Mask by Urban Oreganics:
Inside every Mom ‘N Tot Box is something special for mommy! How cool is that? We get a little treat by treating our kids! I know many moms who will always buy fun things for the little ones but won’t always treat themselves so it’s a fun little bonus! This Facial Mask is awesome and I LOVE that it’s in powder form so you just add water. I feel like this helps it last longer and makes it perfect to travel with since it’s not a liquid. Masks are my favorite! Urban Oreganics offers a variety of bath and body products handcrafted from Oregon State. They are vegan, 100% natural, and organic. You can check them out and learn more at www.urbanoreganics.com and follow them on Instagram! This Facial Mask retails for $22.
6. Keep on Swimming Sibling T-Shrits by Roman and Gemma:
The Mom ‘N Tot Box included TWO cute T-Shirts, one for Andrew and one for Aidan. They are super soft and have cute fish on the front that say, “Keep on Swimming” which is perfect timing since both the boys are living Nemo and Dory right now! Roman and Gemma is a small business comprised of two moms from Southern California, screen printing original hand-drawn art that is inspired by their kids on soft, comfy tees. Learn more and browse their full product line at www.romanandgemma.com and follow them on Instagram! The shirts retail for $22.
7. Solar System Felt Board by Munchkinandbean:
I don’t know how Mom ‘N Tot Box new that my 4 year old is OBSESSED with space, planets, the moon, and all things solar system. He absolutely LOVED this adorable felt space solar system that includes two sizes of the sun and Earth along with all the planets and different moon phases. All of the pieces go on a black sparkly background that looks just like the night sky filled with shining stars. We played with this set for over an hour after he opened it and it’s now part of Andrew’s nightly bedtime routine. Once Aidan goes to sleep, Andrew plays with this set for at least half an hour and I quiz him on all of the things he knows about outer space. Such as how many moons each planet has and naming all of the planets along with some dwarf planets. My four year old is pretty much a genius! I have to learn so much just to keep up with him. So this set was absolutely perfect for our family! His little brother enjoys it with supervision but I want to make sure the pieces stay together so we always put it in a safe place while it’s not in use. Munchkinandbean makes felt boards, felt crafts, educational felt toys, felt bean bags, and much more! Visit their website for more information at www.munchkinandbean.etsy.com and follow them on Instagram! This Outer Space felt kit retails for $20.
About Mom ‘N Tot Box:
Overall, we really LOVED Mom ‘N Tot Box! I love that they combine both fun and learning with awesome hand-made items from small businesses around the US. When you support Mom ‘N Tot Box, you are supporting small business owners and their families, many who are other moms working to build a dream for their own children. The items were all so cute and great quality. You can certainly tell the Mom ‘N Tot Boxes are packed with love! The total value of the June Mom ‘N Tot Sibling Box was $98. Mom ‘N Tot Box was started by Rana Longworth, a mom of two boys, who was inspired by her husband- a small business owner- and wanted to provide other moms and kids with unique items that support other small businesses. The Mom ‘N Tot Sibling Box retails for $65, so you definitely save some money while getting to try new and fun items you may not have heard about before. Everything in the box is full size, so that’s another bonus! There are single child boxes available and you can also purchase a three month subscription. To learn more about Mom ‘N Tot Box, visit their website at www.momandtotbox.com and follow them on Instagram! Note: I received a complimentary Mom ‘N Tot Sibling Box to facilitate my review. All thoughts are my own. I choose to only share products on my blog that my family actually uses and loves!
