An information card detailing all the items is in the box.  Awesome Pack curated this box for our family, which includes mom, dad, a 6 year old girl, a 4 year old boy, a 1 year old baby, and a dog.  We always sing the EVERYTHING IS AWESOME song when this box comes!

The Awesomely Awesome Activity Book!


My daughter is obsessed with this activity book. Remember those magazines with all the puzzles and games? It’s like that, plus activities and other stuff. She completes every activity.

All the items in the Awesome September Box!  It seemed like a particularly big haul this time around.

Grafix Canvas Art Set:  We received a giraffe and a train, themes we hope pique the interest of the two older kids.

Each set comes with an outlined picture, primary color paints, and a brush (the brush is good quality for a kid’s painting kit).

The paintings are REAL, stretched and stapled canvas, so the kids will have wall-worthy artwork when they finish.awesome pack september 2015 IMG_1028

Etch A Sketch Doodle Sketch:  The classic concept, but the knobs are replaced with a magnetic style to make it easier to use for kids.  It comes in fun colors and has a simple clearing mechanism instead of the shaking technique of old.

Mattel Stack-A-Mole:  This is fun and fast-paced.

Everything in the game — it’s made for two players, but you could easily play teams, as well.  We instituted a number of second delay to handicap the adult when going head-to-head with the kids.  awesome pack september 2015 IMG_1031

Mars Attacks Ten-Minute Takedown:  Based on the 1964 trading card set that inspired the cult movie.  You play as Martians and flick the die to move your saucer around and score.

It is a simple game, but it requires some serious die flicking skills!awesome pack september 2015 IMG_1032

Bow Wow Bag:  Our pup needed something awesome, too!  This bag is made of sturdy nylon mesh and has  rigid circular bottom.  The top closes with a drawstring to turn it into a travel bag or to limit pooch’s access to the contents.  The bag is fairly compact, as it attaches to the handle of any standard leash, allowing for hauling of your pup’s essentials.

Sonic The Hedgehog Buildable Figures:  Assembled, this guy stands a couple inches high.  The arms and head attach via a peg and slot system.  The figure itself is bendable plastic and comes in a hard plastic shell.

Shopkins Fashion Tags:  Shopkins are little creatures with cute faces and bodies made of items you’d find in a grocery store.  This pack is Shopkins themed — it doesn’t have the figures themselves.  awesome pack september 2015 IMG_1036

The Shopkins set includes a big sticker and a fashion tag (a coated dog tag in a fun shape, with a picture of  a Shopkin, and a beaded necklace.awesome pack september 2015 IMG_1038

Grab and Go Angry Birds:  This fun kit is loaded with expressive stickers, and it has coloring sheets, as well.

Some of the over 200 stickers in the book (three background sheets are provided to arrange stickers on), and one of six coloring pages.awesome pack september 2015 IMG_1040

Grafix Mini Frames:  This simple kit has everything you need to prepare three custom mini frames for your favorite mini photos.  You use the provided pencils to color the paper frame insert, then assemble with decorative hanger and pendant heart.

Awesome Pack is, well, pretty awesome.  We love that it is tailored to our family, so everyone gets a special toy, game, or craft picked especially for them, and we also get a game for the whole family to play.  It is a great way to make sure you have some new fun activities for your next rainy weekend or family game night!
