Sago Mini Box is a monthly make-and-play subscription for preschoolers that brings quality and creative play. Each monthly box is $19 plus shipping, and if you decide to have an annual subscription, you can save up to $48 annually. You’ll get a box filled with make-and-play activities and surprises designed to teach modern skills to preschoolers and a Sago mini collectible figurine of one of the characters from the box, and a special letter for the kids.
The box features cute doodles on the outside! Inside, it’s green and the flaps look like teeth!
The contents are packed with wrapping paper and sealed with a Sago Mini sticker.
Inside the box, the items are also individually wrapped and packed.
Each activity has their own envelope packaging.
There’s a card that welcomes us to this month’s box, which is all about ZOO!
The flip side of the cards talks about all the activities in this month’s box, and lists the contents as well!
Somewhere in the box, there’s an illustrated instruction on how to build the box into an alligator!
Here’s how the box looks like when transformed into an alligator with large, sharp teeth!
There are 3 activity packs!
The collectible mini-figurine is wrapped in a cute printed paper and sealed with a SAGO mini sticker.
Zookeper Penny. This month’s collectible mini-figurine is Zookeeper Penny!
Zookeeper Penny is a panda wearing a zookeeper vest!
Activity # 1: Alligator Dentist. For the first activity, we received the materials in a bright yellow envelope with different animal paw prints.
The other side of the envelope has the instructions for the activity!
The envelope includes a letter from Penny, the cute panda.
We got a clipboard with the zookeeper’s checklist.
For this activity, we got the alligator box, swamp mat, toothbrush, toothpaste, marker, and eyes.
My daughter started to take out all the envelope’s contents.
First, they read the card and learn more about the activities ahead.
They also looked at the included clipboard with the zookeeper’s checklist.
It’s time to clean the alligator’s teeth!
We used the marker to get some “cavities” on the alligator’s teeth. Then we used the toothbrush with toothpaste to clean it! The brush served as an ink eraser.
This is a fun and easy way to teach the kids on how to properly brush their teeth as well.
The activity might get a little messy so the swamp mat is perfect.
Activity # 2: Monkey Potty Training. Here’s another envelope and it contains everything that we’ll need for the next activity, which is to potty train a monkey. The envelope is printed with different kinds of leaves and is super cute.
The flip side of the package also has instructions on how to do the second activity.
Inside the envelope is a note from our friend Jinja!
The package contains the monkey, toilet base, toilet tank, food/poop, and a jungle mat.
Here are the different foods that we can feed the monkey!
My daughter had fun feeding the monkey with lots of food!
The monkey got full and digested everything, so now it’s time to go to the toilet!
Here are the different poop images, and they even come with different faces. The emotions will depend on what food the monkey ate!
It’s time to potty train the monkey, but first, my kids set-up the toilet base and tank.
The monkey is done with its business and there’s poop in the toilet that we need to flush away!
To flush, my kids just turned down the handle on the toilet base.
The poop will slide down as the “water” in the tank slides open.
It’s also very important that the kids learn to wash their hands after using the toilet!
This activity is really educational and it’s another great way to teach the kids about proper hygiene while having a silly and fun time!
My kids ticked the checklist first for the activities that they were done with.
Activity # 3: Lion Hairdresser. For the last activity, the material was packed in a patterned gray and white envelope, addressed to the Fierce Stylist!
Just like the past two activities, there were complete instructions on how to do the last activity.
This time, the letter inside the envelope came from our BFF, Harvey!
The pack contains the lion, wigs, comb, magazine, stickers, and savanna mat. We also used a pair of scissors from home. Because this activity requires the use of a sharp tool, supervision from an adult is recommended.
The magazine has different hairstyles for the lion, like the bob, the mullet, the bowl cut, and asymmetrical.
The kids decided on what hairstyle they want to do by looking at the magazine.
They decided to try the asymmetrical style!
First, they set it up by laying down the savanna mat and the make the lion sit up, then they placed the wig on the lion by tearing the bottom part and draping the opened up wig on the lion’s head.
Using a pair of scissors, they cut the lions hair according to the style they had decided to copy.
They also trimmed the back part of the lion’s mane.
They also put some accessories on the lion’s hair using the provided sticker sheet with different clips, crowns, colors, ribbons, and more!
My son also tried a different wig color and this time, he did another hairstyle!
The lion actually looks good with the asymmetrical hairstyle!
They also did other hairstyles on the other wigs and added accessories to them as well!
Sago Mini Box is a fun activity box for kids that encourages creativity and enhances imagination. All the activities in the box help them develop their skills through make-believe play. My kids enjoyed taking care of the zoo animals this month! Their favorite is creating new hairstyles for the lion, but brushing the alligator’s teeth and potty training the monkey was also fun for them and I guarantee you that they have played it over and over and over. This is definitely one of the best boxes for pretend play! They provide all the materials and instructions, and everything is packed accordingly so your kids can just grab an envelope and start playing right away!
