My Pretend Place January Review

My Pretend Place has a dress-up subscription for kids that ships every 3 months. It costs $50 and you have 3 options; girls, boys, and neutral. (They also have a monthly craft subscription that costs $15 with the same option for boys, girls, or neutral). For girls, January’s theme was Princesses.  This was a *huge* hit for my 4 year old! I was happy to see that everything except for the book was Melissa & Doug!

The first thing we opened were the 2 envelopes. One was a little story about the box and the second envelope contained a magnet and a handle (so your little one can carry it around) & decorations for the box. How much fun is that?

Decorate Your Own Princess Mirror: $6.99  The quality of the mirror is actually quite nice. It’s made out of wood and unlike many mirrors for kids, you can actually see in this one clearly. This is what my daughter wanted to do first and had a ton of fun decorating her own mirror.

Wooden Princess Stamp Set: $9.99  This was another hit with my daughter. Such a fun stamp set for little girls who are into princesses! She’s always asking to play with this (since it’s stamps, I keep it put up). My only complaint with this was how difficult it was to get the stamps inked up. You can’t just push it into the ink once and then onto paper. You have to keep pressing the stamp into the ink repeatedly and move the stamp around in as you do so. Not sure if we had a bad ink pad, or if it’s made like this since it’s for kids…

Don’t Kiss The Frog! Princess Stories WIth Attitude: $8.99  This is such a fun book! We’ve been reading a story every night before bed. Not your typical princess stories…these are fun and sassy!

Princess Costume: $29.99  This is also Melissa & Doug. It includes the dress, tiara & wand. I was very surprised by the quality of the dress!! Definitely NOT cheaply made. The seams are nice, there’s no fraying anywhere; and there’s even a hoop in the bottom to give it shape. My daughter is 4 and this dress fit her perfectly. I really am impressed with it!

Overall, the value of the box was $55.96. Not a huge savings, but this box was more about the fun and quality of the items. We’ll definitely be keeping this subscription. The items were fun and age appropriate (3-6) and the quality of the items is outstanding! Plus, if you use code PRETEND you’ll get 30% off your first box, bringing it down to $35 🙂

Check out their website for fun recipes, crafts, and activities (free) as well!
