The August theme is Circus! I don’t think I’ve seen a circus theme for a kids’ subscription box before, and I just think this is a really fun theme. Bramble Box is all about providing supplies for open ended crafting and play time, so it leads off with a book about a circus, includes a sticker scene to turn your box into a cute play circus, and provides supplies and ideas to put on your own performance!

Everything included in the August box – plus the box itself – you need it for the play scene!

This box is all about open ended play, so 3 play silks were included, a fun clown nose, and circus tickets printed on thick, durable stock. There was also a temporary tattoo!


The kids had a great time with everything and are still playing with the silks!


Even the baby got in on the fun! He thought it was hilarious and laughed and laughed!

Everything was included to make a circus play set – outfits for the small wooden dolls, pennants, and face decorations for the dolls.


Dad and the kids made the scene…


And the result was fabulous! My kids love pretend play with small characters and this was perfect – and they had a great time imagining with the theme! It looks like my husband did too!


The clown got to wear the hose as a funny hairdo…


And this is what kids playing looks like – all squished up on each other. They played with this forever!

The box also came with a Day at the Circus book to set the scene and to provide more fodder for young imaginations, as well as stickers to decorate the box and backdrop.

Great depictions of circus scenes and fun rhymes!

Our daughter also used this as a backdrop for more play and imagination.

Bramble Box is centered around a single, simple concept, but it provides enough inspiration and materials to keep the kids imaginations running. In this case the theme was fantastic and provided multiple avenues of play and role play, while also containing a fun craft and a great book.  My children absolutely love this subscription and my daughter begs for it as soon as it arrives (we open it up as soon as we can and get the kids playing!).
