All the items in the August Box!

Busy Buddy Waggle ($4.72) This is a treat dispensing toy for our dog. That will keep her busy while we play some games! 🙂  I really like this design because it’s not so infuriating for her – you can trim the rubber inside to make the treats go easier.

Hot Wheels Marvel Ultimate Spider-Man ($3.33) Car + Superhero = Win!  This is an awesome design and really fun – I may have caught my husband playing with this car.

Quick Quick Tabletop Game ($6.76) This is a tabletop matching game – Everyone gets one set of animal cards and the pattern cards go in the middle. You match, you keep the pattern, You match wrong, you lose your animal!

Everything was a blur! We played this after dinner one night and had a lot of fun. Since we took away the iPad we have been trying to provide structured game opportunities, and this was perfect. Yep, I took that danged thing away.

Design Your Own T-Shirt Transfer ($10 for 2) This is going to be a great activity for a rainy day. We’ve asked the kids to think about what design they’ll make for their own special shirts!

Foxmind Taiga Board Game ($19.49) This is an absolutely gorgeous board game. I’m trying to find a way to steal this from my children, because it has beavers on it. I have a ridiculous beaver collection and a board game… That’s a first for me. We’re going to use this game for our son’s forest-theme birthday party to provide an activity for our big kids. Just a small family event and dad & daughter say it’s a lot of fun. I love the little real wood chips as tokens!

This was a great box, and I loved that there were two games we could play in it as a family. As I mentioned above, we had to crack down on screen time because the kids were being totally insane about their iPad games (and ignoring their parents!). We had a particularly fun time with this month’s box and most importantly, it was family time.   FYI – the base pack is for 2 kids & 2 adults, but you can add extra kids (human or pet) for $4.49 each. You will fill out a customization sheet so they can curate your box for you, plus you will receive a monthly survey to provide feedback. I think they are very attentive to our desires! For the hours of fun you get out of a board game and great family activities, this is a good value. If you don’t have kids you can check out our previous reviews to see what kinds of games they send for big kids.
