What kid does not like toys? Even though boxes may still be a favorite, there is that special something about toys that boxes dont’t. Needless to say, my boys love toys. And something that they both love just as much as toys is getting packages in the mail!! This time they got an amazing package from Little Pnuts that blew all of our minds away!
J. was awake when the package was delivered and he was so happy about it. He rarely gets to be the one to open any packages but this time he did and he was quite happy about it…even though he is as serious as serious gets (both my boys got that from their dad).
What is Little Pnuts?
Little Pnuts is a quarterly subscription box service that feature only the best toys out there. Toys that are organic, ecologically friendly, handmade, made of natural materials and sustainably made.
Little Pnuts has four special deliveries: September, December, March, and June. Each month costs $25. That would make it a grand total of $240 a year…a year full of toys that will not only entertain your child, but toys that will help increase his/her creative and imaginative play. And to be honest, $25 a month is not bad, specially since if you were to buy the toys in every monthly box separately it would be way more expensive.
Little Pnuts: Preschool March
We got to review Litte Pnuts’ Preschool box for the month of March which contained:
- Plan Toys Shape Sorter Puzzle $20
- Mini Construction Vehicles
- Hape Lacing Pony $10.90
- Haba Orchard Card Game $9.99
Little Pnuts Preschool: Shape Sorter Puzzle
It feels that, somehow, Little Pnuts was able to read my boys’ minds. Instantly, as soon as the toys came out of the box, J. went straight for the Shape Sorter Puzzle. This little boy is a pro at puzzle building. Ever since we got an iPad (over a year ago) this boy has been playing with puzzles.
I didn’t even have to say anything, as soon as the pieces were out of the box he was right on top of it. In a matter of minutes all the pieces were where they belonged. But still…
I simply explained what to do with it and then his smile came back.
Little Pnuts Preschool: Mini Construction Vehicles
A. thinks that every single car that makes it into our house is his. Thankfully they have been very good at sharing.
Little Pnuts Preschool: Lacing Pony
This little pony gave us all a headache. Even though it is geared towards 3+ year old children it is tougher that it looks; specially the legs! A. gave it a try a couple times but all the strings got all tangled and then he gave up. After all there were cars in the package, right?!
J. gave it a try as well. But he was more interested on stringing the beads. the next day after we opened the package he would walk around the house holding all 4 strings.
Even I got to lace the pony. It took me a bit, but once you master it then it is pretty easy.
Little Pnuts Preschool: Orchard Card Game
I have never seen this
little boy enjoy a game so much! The premise of the Orchard game is so simple it is super easy to grasp: all the players have to harvest all the fruit before the raven reaches the orchard.
We got to try this game just as Grandma got home to hang out with us. Each player gets their own card with a bunny and its basket. Each player then rolls a dice, if you roll a color side then you pick a fruit card; if you roll a basket then you get to pick up any two cards you want. If you roll the raven then it gets to move one step closer to the orchard (cards lined up in the middle).
The idea is to harvest all the fruit before the raven makes it to the orchard.
It was so much fun!! A. would have the greatest reactions to this game. If anyone got to harvest a fruit he would yell and celebrate and if anyone rolled a raven he would be so devastated. It got so loud that I ended up with a headache! But it was amazing seeing him having so much fun!
Little Pnuts: Imagine. Create. Play.
All in all, Little Pnuts is a great subscription box; the best I have seen so far. Not only will your kids get to look forward to what the next box will have but you can rest assured that these toys are not only safe but that they also increase your child’s imaginative and creative skills. And to me there is no better thing that that! Just seeing my boys master something new fills my heart!
