Lollibox : Under the Sea Review and Giveaway


SPONSORED REVIEW
Our Lollibox!
There was a special delivery last Friday. It's a box from Lollibox!
We have heard and read reviews on Lollibox from others and we could not wait to try out the activities for ourselves.

We got our Lollibox today
About Lollibox
Lollibox is an edu-play kit that allows for hands-on fun that develops creativity and expression. Lollibox includes all materials and content in a box with a theme for an engaging hands-on activity.

This is a concept that has busy parents and active kids in mind. It delivers straight to your doorstep at your own convenience. Once you open the box, it is all systems go!

There are 2 to 3 activities in the box depending on the theme. The 4 major components are to Create, Discover , Enrich and Award. Each component comes with their own set of activities and supplies. Through this, Lollibox aims to create a holistic experience for the kids to learn and play.
Activities Galore!
Our theme for our Lollibox is Under the Sea. Lollibox adds a new theme every month to its inventory. You can also back order Lollibox themes from previous months.
The Theme : Under the Sea
All the materials and instructions we need to kick off the activity are in the box. We did not need to waste time for Daddy to source for materials to get started. We started off with the Discover component and create a fishing game for ourselves! The mayhem fun begins!
Time for Lollibox activity
We get to colour, cut and improvise on our activity. Although water colours are provided for colouring, we decided to use crayons and markers to add colours to our sea-creatures. The activity does not restrict you to the materials provided and you could improvise to suit your child's needs and comfort. Afterall it's about being creativity and creativity has no boundaries.
Concentrating
Daddy like the fact that we got so engage in the activity. It took us about 40 mins (with help from Daddy and Mummy) to complete the activity and we enjoyed every minute of it. The activities are suitable for age 3-7. Given that Didi is only 2, he is less able to sit and concentrate as much as I did. Nevertheless he is eager to join in the craft actvities.
Didi wants to cut too!
Our Sea is ready. I could identify all the creatures of the sea!
I get to decorate my own sea bed as well for this activity.
Under the Sea
We started our fishing after we did our sea. It was relatively easy to 'catch' the sea creatures and we had a mini competition between us. We love the fact that we could learn and play at the same time!

Guess who won?

We love the fishing game and we envision that we would play with it again and again and again!

( Suggested learning could include naming the sea creatures, identifying the colours , counting the number of fishes caught in this exercise)
Fishing Time
Our next activity is to create a mini aquarium under the Create component. This was relatively easier compared to creating our own sea. The activity took us less than 10 mins to complete.
Building an aquarium
We love how the aquarium turn out. It was fun decorating and seeing our 'fishes' swim in it. We were both amazed by it. Didi liked the activity so much that he wanted to take the contents out and redo the aquarium <faint>.
Our mini aquarium
At the end of our activity, I was awarded a Under the Sea badge. Hurrah!
( This badge is provided under the Award component )

We had to postpone the Enrich part of the activity as we played so much that it was getting close to bedtime.

We had fun exploring the activities in Lollibox and we think this concept would appeal to parents looking for an activity filled bonding time with their kids minus the hassle. In addition, we think this would make a great birthday or Christmas present as well!

You can now get your very own lollibox at their website. For products update do visit Lollibox Fanpage.
There are also 3 months and 6 months subscriptions available and they come with with welcome box for new subscribers along with discounts and free month ( depending on packages)
