Review by “The Binder Ladies” blog
Surprise Ride is just that, a surprise! These amazing monthly boxes were founded by sisters who truly enjoyed their childhood with their father, and all the things they did with him. They are now making this happen for children all over! Family togetherness, education, creativity and fun make up each of these unique boxes. Every Mom or Dad can respect their three basic principles:
1. Kids are brilliant.
2. Curiosity fuels success.
3. Everyone loves getting a surprise in the mail.
I, (Mandy), was sent a Surprise Ride Penguin Box to check out and review. Now I’ll be the first to admit, my kids get bored easily. Especially now when the weather is wet and cold, and their mom (myself) is afraid of the flu season. So what happens? They lose interest in being creative and energetic quickly, so I needed something to help feed their creativity fast!
Surprise Ride contends that this is a “monthly box of adventure.” I’ll have to agree! This month was March of the Penguins! A full length National Geographic book gave so much information and an exclusive inside look at how penguins live and all about their environment, while a two page information booklet gave you all kinds of neat facts on penguins! The boys loved learning about these neat, arctic creatures, and continued to ask questions while being enthralled with the answers that the book gave us. It was really fun reading these together, as a family.
One of the most amazing things that I would have NEVER thought of finding in our Surprise Ride Box was a fleece pillow DIY kit! It’s kind of like a tied fleece blanket, only a pillow! I really wanted to try this with the kids, but I got a little craft happy. While the boys were slumbering quietly, I put the pillow together and couldn’t believe how easy it was! Revenge for eating my popcorn ball, perhaps? My oldest son LOVES this pillow, and he now refuses to sleep without it. He loves how soft it is, and especially loves the penguin on the front, since he’s now been educated in the life of penguins!
This box was truly an amazing experience, and we were left with the reminisce of a snowy Winter around penguins! It fed my kid’s imaginations, and fueled their minds for more learning! What I loved was that I could teach them, while I learned about some really fun stuff, myself. It was so much fun! I am going to personally sign up for these monthly kits, and I know the boys are going to LOVE getting their surprises in the mail! Prices are definitely worth the materials that are sent, because they are FULL of great products with a month’s worth of imagination, exploring and education. I highly recommend these boxes! Not only Surprise Ride boxes creative genius, they are boxes full of learning, which makes it an amazing adventure, indeed.
