"We were lucky enough to win a box. The presentation of the box is beautiful, the book was gorgeous - it was lovely to sit and share a new book with the boys. The instructions were simple to follow and laid out easily. My 2 boys sat for a good hour creating together and it's the first time for ages that they haven't fought. An excellent box for the holidays. Thanks so much." Harmony, Western Australia

 "As a mother of three young children, the Book Playbox is such a lifesaver! I used to put together lots of fun sensory activities for my eldest child but now with two more kids in the mix it's become a bit more complicated and I often put big crafting activities in the too-hard pile. The fact that each Playbox comes with clear instructions and all materials needed to get straight into creating is absolutely genius! None of that "go and find a piece of paper and a glue stick and a rainbow and a unicorn before you can get started" nonsense - it's all there ready for you to get stuck in. My girls especially loved The Mystery of the Missing Cake activities - are there any toddlers who don't enjoy cutting paper, getting glue everywhere, and creating magic at the same time? I honestly can't recommend The Book Playbox enough. It saves my sanity while enabling my children to have a whole lot of fun! " Rebekah, Ashburton, NZ
