My daughter’s December 2016 Hoppi Box included a shape sorter/balancing game, nuts and bolts, paints and a memory game.

I enjoyed the enclosed synopsis of 2 to 3-year-old milestones and the pointers about how to support and further develop logical thinking and how to help develop literacy through listening to different sounds.

The included toy descriptions were thorough and helpful. I couldn’t wait to start playing with these toys with my daughter!

Le Petit Matisse’s Watercolors ($12) are vegan, plant-based, gluten-free and non-toxic. They’re scented with clove oil to help awaken the senses.

My daughter loved playing with these! Tentative at first, she eventually started mixing the colors. She was especially proud of the green birthday cakes she painted.

Begin Again’s Rubberwood Shape Sorter and Game ($12) is a shape sorter and balance game in one toy!

My daughter had a lot of fun with the shape sorter. She enjoyed announcing the shapes and colors as she put the pieces into the puzzle. She was less excited about trying to balance the shapes. (She said “No!” when I tried to show her how.) I’m sure that will come with time.

Plan Toys’ Nuts and Bolts ($19.99) is pretty cool. Children can use the set to create their own unique toys by switching which pieces go together.

My daughter just learned how to open bottles by twisting their caps off (yay?), so this toy was perfect for her! She enjoyed putting the pieces together.

Child’s Cup Full’s Memory Game ($26) is handmade from fabric and vegan leather in the West Bank. We’ve received a few other toys from them through subscription boxes and couldn’t be happier with their quality. This is a gorgeous set. This Hoppi Box exclusive set is a smaller subset of the Memory Game ($29.50) available through Child’s Cup Full.

My daughter started by naming all of the animals on the squares.

Then she used the squares to construct a “T.” Even though it’s not what was intended, she had a great time! As she gets older, I look forward to playing memory with her with this lovely set of animals.

My daughter and I both loved our first box from Hoppi Box! All of the toys were age appropriate and high-quality. In terms of value, the cost of the box exceeded the value of the toys by just a bit. I’d love to see the value of the box increase in coming quarters. Still, the toys were all excellent, and as a mom, I love knowing that experts are keeping up with my daughter’s age and stage and selecting great, appropriate toys for me.

Do you subscribe to Hoppi Box? Do you look forward to receiving your box every quarter?
