I recently reviewed the dress-up box from My Pretend Place – a new quarterly themed pretend play and dress up subscription box for children aged 3-6. A! You can save 30% on your first box with promo code pretend. Every quarterly My Pretend Place package comes complete with high quality non-itchy dress-up costumes, activities or crafts, and other pretend play inspiration. Plus, you get totally free surprises in the in between months to keep the play going. This subscription is a little different than some others, in that it starts with the first theme first. For girls, you’ll get princess, and boys will receive Astronaut! You can see our review of the first box in our Pretend Place subscription (Princess dressup), or of the craft box, which is another subscription they offer.
The first in-between month came with a letter addressed to your child from Princess Prudence about her adventures and suggesting that she host a tea party. Included in the mailing was a tea cup treat craft/snack. My daughter thought I had stolen her book, which was in the first box, for the photo in this mailing.
Also included – a mini sticker set to create “the fairytale of your dreams.” My daughter couldn’t sleep tonight so I let her work on this. She has a play date tomorrow and I have no doubt it will involve a tea party!
This was a fun surprise. Even though I’d reviewed the initial box in this subscription I didn’t expect it at all. I think this is great fun for a gift for a grandchild too! The interstitial mailing is definitely not the main event, but it got my child excited to role play with items she already owned, which is fantastic.
