Sago Mini’s fun subscription for preschoolers and little kids made the list in our 2021 readers’ choice best subscription boxes for kids list!
This month we’re going to be using our TOOLBOX!
Aside from the main box, there are also envelopes that separate the materials.
A card welcomes us to this month’s box! The box this month is all about TOOL BOX!
At the back, it discusses all the activities in this month’s box and lists the contents as well!
The box includes 3 different activities!
Every box also includes a collectible figurine. It’s wrapped in a printed paper and also sealed with Sago Mini sticker.
Handy Astrid. This month’s featured figure is Handy Astrid. She’s here to join the kids in the activities!
She has a nice and long purple hair. There are some flaws on the paintjob but still, this is a nice addition in the box!
Activity #1: Hammer and Nails. The first activity came in a green envelope and it’s from Astrid herself. It’s also addressed to her favorite carpenter.
The instructions are at the back of the envelope. This make-believe activity also involves construction play and small motor play.
Here’s a letter from Astrid, asking help for some needed repairs on her home.
These are the materials needed to help repair Astrid’s house. It includes cutouts of a hammer, nails, roof, trampoline, and mat, plus stickers!
The main box was transformed into Astrid’s house.
In this activity, the kids just need to repair the problems in Astrid’s house using the provided stickers!
My son started fixing the light. This way, he will be able to see other parts of the house that needs to be repaired!
He also fixed the roof, making sure that there are no leaks even on rainy days!
My daughter also joined in on the fun and did more roof repairs.
She also set up the trampoline.
Astrid was so happy that she can use her trampoline!
Activity #2: Sawing Wood. The second envelope came from Neville and it’s addressed to his handy friend.
The second activity requires “sawing” wood, but no worries because the provided saw is kid-friendly. This activity is also great for enhancing fine motor skills.
Neville needs help to build some furniture for Astrid, and the kids are willing to help him!
Aside from the saw, the envelope includes wood pieces and paper cover.
This one is pretty easy. The kids just need to “saw” through the wooden pieces and then attach them together to build a bed or table. The last step is adding the paper cover and then, it’s ready to be used by Astrid!
Activity #3: Wrench, Nuts & Bolts. The last envelope contains another fun activity and this time, it involves wrench, nut, and bolts. It’s from Jack and it’s addressed to his DIY buddy!
Just like the previous envelopes, the instructions are printed at the back.
Jack is in charge of building the swing and slide in Astrid’s playground and he needs the help of the kids!
The materials from the envelope include a wrench, nuts, bolts, slide, ladder, and swing set.
My son started by assembling the slide. He folded the side tabs of the slide and ladder, then put the bolt through the aligned holes.
My daughter also helped in tightening the nut on the slide with the wrench.
The next step is to set up the swing and attach it to the house!
It’s almost done! Aside from make-believe play, this activity is also great for small motor play.
My daughter put Astrid on the slide to test it out.
Astrid’s house is now complete!
My kids love this Sago Mini Box! It was like a big tool box made specially for the kids, and the activities are all appropriate to their age as well. There were easy to follow instructions so each task went smoothly and only required minimum supervision. These activities encourage make-believe play and also helps enhance kids’ fine motor skills. After doing them, my kids continued playing with the house and with Astrid, so it was really fun. If you’re looking for an activity subscription for preschoolers, this one is perfect. It’s a good way to develop skills while having fun at home!
