Oldest loves getting things through the post so I knew that we had to try the ‘Clever Bees Club’ box subscription service. It did not disappoint. The box arrived when Oldest was at school. As soon as we arrived home Oldest wanted to open it. However, I used the promise of opening the box as a reward for doing her homework and having her bath. I have never seen her so keen to do her homework! It certainly made homework easier that night.
Now I could tell you what I thought of the box, but I thought that it might be better if Oldest told you herself! As we know Oldest can be a very harsh critic.
Oldest was happy with her ‘Clever Bees’ box. I was also impressed with the idea of the box. Mark founded the ‘Clever Bees Club’. He had the idea of a monthly subscription box after many trips to toy shops with his children. Mark realised that there was a real need in the market for an affordable monthly subscription box for children. As Mark said –
“Wouldn’t it be great to have a mixture of new fantastic activities AND fun toys to play with on a regular basis?”
What is the Clever Bees box?
- A monthly subscription box.
- Contains goodies for children.
- A mixture of fun developmental activities.
Each month the box will have a different focus. The focus for this box was water. The box contained a range of activities and goodies under this common theme.
The box comes with its own information sheet. On there are a range of suggestions with ideas for the fun that you can have with the goodies in your box. There was a great range of fun and developmental activities to keep both Oldest and Youngest busy. The box is good value anyway but even better value if you have siblings. My two enjoyed this box and happily shared the box amongst themselves.
The box also came with a recipe card. Perfect for all of these rainy days that we have been having recently. We were pleasantly surprised with how many different activities and goodies there were in the box.
Clever Bees like to include a wide range of activities in the box because the idea is that the box will keep the children entertained whilst also providing value for money.
As you can see there really was a variety of activities. Clever Bees wanted a box that had enough activities to keep the children entertained for longer than a weekend. They also wanted to ensure that it had a focus on child’s development, whilst making it fun and interactive.
Each month the box has a new theme but there will always be a range of activities like the below –
- Cooking recipes
- Activity books
- Creative crafts
- Animal facts
- Music and sounds
- Basic Science
- Insects and flowers
- Grow your own fruit and veg
- The human body
- Story books
- Family games
- Colouring & drawing
My two were delighted with the above book that came with the box and it was lovely to see them sitting down and enjoying the book together.
The box is suitable for children aged 3-7 years old. The box is posted to you free of charge and the cost of a monthly box is £19.95. If you would like more information on the box and/or to subscribe then head over to the ‘Clever Bees Club’ website.
