Toddi Box Review

Posted on Updated on

In the Toddibox, there were activities according to different categories to choose from. I let Yuvan choose the activities he would like to do from the box and we tried out the following activities. But before he embarked on actually doing them, as I was sorting the different sealed pouches, he grabbed the book that was in the Toddi Box and started reading and he did say he liked the book and the story. It was definitely a good start!!!!

Category: Ten fingers

This section mostly is kind of Art and Craft section with opportunity for the child to use all his/her ten fingers. As Yuvan is 7, I didn’t help him much. He decided to do the Christmas Tree craft, Christmas Wreath and the Santa’s Dress up all by himself.

As he loves to do hands-on activities, he loved it and he was in complete control right from reading the instructions, cutting, decorating, pasting and what not!

Collage 3- DressUp Santa

 

What’s my take?

The activities definitely kept him engaged and he loved doing it, as most of the kids love doing art and craft, be it any age…

Dress -Up Santa had some simple sentences to accompany about the Santa Claus and I asked him to cut up the sentences, read and arrange them in the order he wanted to – All about Santa Claus!

The materials were neatly packaged with clear instructions for him to understand.

The glue was packaged nicely as a pen and so Yuvan loved it… But the glue was super low quality and after his efforts of trying to use it was not fruitful, I had to ask him to get our own glue out.

If you child is interested in art and craft, these activities can be used up to the age of 7.

This was the most exciting part of the whole package. It was kind of introduction to science using experimental learning. As Yuvan is into all this right now, he was more excited, he read the instructions and we did it together. It was fun doing all the steps, but in the end our salt crystals didn’t  grow. The next day, we repeated each  step carefully again but still no improvement. So I am really not sure whether Toddibox tried the experiment. If so, I would be keen to know if there are any tips for this that we could incorporate.

What’s my take?

Definitely this is the section that will get the older kids interested and Toddibox can consider to have more experimental learning kits in the package rather than just one.

What’s my review over all?

  • The activities are neatly packaged.
  • All the activities are more suitable for 2 to 5 year olds.
  • I liked their advent calendar and which could be tweaked to suit all ages with the theme being the same for all.
  • If the package has to be developed for older kids, it should have more components of experimental learning and some more art and craft that may suit/challenge the older ones.
