Putting together gifts or care packages can be rough for those of us overseas. Mainly because it usually requires shipping from 12 separate places at varying costs and then additional shipping for the box itself. Kids Prize Pack is a great solution to this issue by providing a fun box of activities, toys and games for kids.
From their site "Kids Prize Pack is focused on helping children all over the country build a strong love and desire to read. Studies have shown that a large percentage of kids who claim to “Hate” reading say it is because they can’t find anything interesting to read. Our goal at Kids Prize Pack is to provide a Unique and Fun solution to this problem. Every Kids Prize Pack will include an Age and Gender appropriate Book, Toys, Games, and an assortment of other items. We choose a New Theme each month and base all included items on it. Our thoughts are that if a child enjoys playing with the Amazing Toys and Games, than they will also want to read the Book on the same subject. This is means your child will be reading more often and will quickly learn to love reading."
The box was FULL of great stuff. This box was super hero themed and included all sorts of activities and items related to super heros, including the books. The books were a Marvel World of Reading book: Spiderman ($3.99 and 4.5 stars on Amazon) and "Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants" ($5.99 and 4.5 stars on Amazon.) I was a little put off by some of the reviews of the Captain book for "potty mouth" language, but I assume its great for encouraging giggles.
Next was an Ant-Man Bobble-Head Funko Pop ($12.90). The Funko Pop was super timely with the recent release of the movie which made Mom and Dad happy (who may also be stealing said Funko Pop). I think its a great little toy. Only concern is with it being a bobble head for ages 4-5, which I see as a recipe for disaster.
Also included were an Avengers action figure ($5.96) and Play Pack of Avengers items and stickers ($8.00). These items go well with the books and are great fun to play with. They are also spot on for age appropriateness. The Play Pack also went straight into my "Car Survival Kit." And a mini action figure, we got Savage (.50).
There was also an amazing set of Faber coloring items ($5?). These didn't seem to be exactly on theme but were definitely high quality coloring and art items.
Finally, just in time for back to school was a super great Spiderman pencil bag set (similar, but not exact to this product priced at 9.95.)
There are 4 options for boxes Boys or Girls ages 4-8 or 9-12 for $25 a month. Overall out of 10, I give Kids Prize Pack Superheroes box for 4-8 an 8 on quality, 10 on cost (total price at 44.29), appropriate for 4-8 score of 6 (mainly for the bobble head and poopy book for 4-5 year olds), and a 10 on fun! Check them out at www.kidsprizepack.com. Also, keep an eye out, as they will be offering a military discount soon.
