A Unicorn Box with Puppets from Not Another Birthday - Review!

Do you ever struggle to buy presents for children? I know when my girls were younger and they were invited to birthday parties I used to, especially for children which I didn't know too well. 

Two mums from Suffolk have created something which can make our lives a lot easier! Not Another Birthday provides fantastic presents in beautiful themed boxes or bundles for children. 

Their boxes are the perfect solution for the special little people in your lives. The hunt for the perfect children's gift is over. Their signature 'Not Another Birthday' boxes come packed full of thoughtful, unique gits for kids, they are beautifully wrapped and include a personalised card.

There are 8 boxes to choose from. A Unicorn Box with puppets, Fairy Princess Box, Dinosaur Box for ages 3 to 5 and one for 5 to 8 year old's, a Superhero Box for ages 3 to 5 and one for 5 to 8 year old's, an Outdoors Box and a Unicorn Box with a skipping rope. 

The themed boxes cost £20.00 and I think that is a great price for what you get.

I chose the Unicorn Box with Puppets for Ellie. It says these boxes are aimed at 3 to 8 year old's but Ellie is crazy about unicorns and included everything that she loves.

The box arrived and I left Ellie to open it! The box is made of kraft card and are covered in the signature doodle design which can be coloured in as an extra activity!

Ellie was very impressed when she opened the box. Each item was individually wrapped in coloured tissue paper and it is such a lovely touch. Ellie said it felt like it was her birthday!

This magical box included:

Two Unicorn hand puppets to make - These are great for imaginative play and are easy to make with no glue or scissors needed.
A magic wand to make. - Create your own unicorn wand. Use the cut outs, ribbon & glitter glue to personalise your wand.
A rainbow hair clip - Shimmer and shine with the beautiful rainbow hair clip
A signature Not Another Birthday A6 kraft notebook.
Colouring pencils! - 12 colouring pencils in a cute unicorn tube.

 You can also choose to add additional items to each box. Things like Unicorn necklaces, keyrings, card games and several different colouring in items.

Ellie loved everything included in this box and it didn't take her long to start making the unicorn puppets. I was so impressed with them. They are made from thick cardboard and were way bigger than I thought they would be. They were a little fiddly to put together but we got there eventually. I think they will be around for a long time. Ellie thinks they are fantastic.

These boxes are so thoughtfully put together and there is a theme for just about any child. I think these would be a fab idea for a Christmas eve treat or reward for doing well at school as well as a birthday present. Everything included is a fantastic quality and they are well worth the money.

If you are looking for something which costs a little less there are the Gift Bundles which cost £8.00. You receive a minimum of three themed children's gifts, individually wrapped and tied in a bundle with a personalised card. The themes include Sparkle, Superhero, Explorer and the Dinosaur Bundle.

Free UK shipping comes as standard on all boxes.  Boxes are sent the same day when orders are placed before 2pm and are sent by Royal Mail second class. 

We were sent this box free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
