Max Cleans up Book – $3.00

Our kiddo loves books and is familiar with Max from Max and Ruby. They are characters from a Nickelodeon Jr. Show by the same name. We used to watch regularly until Nick Jr. introduced the whole Nick Mom BS (Grrrrr!)

Kids’ Clothesline Art Gallery

This is one of two items that fall under the “Create” category. This looks like a lot of fun, we haven’t don this craft yet, but as soon as the kiddo makes anything that may be construed as art or colors in an actual coloring book we will be all over it!

Art Supplies Organizer

This is another project in the “Create” category. The kiddos use the provided finger paints and glue stick to decorate and divide the provided box with labels to make their own organizer! This is a great idea and helps to start good habits early (now if only he could do laundry!)

The Connect part of the box is the Toca House and Fairytale Preschool.

Overall we are very impressed with our first BabbaBox, (We bought a subscription for the kiddo’s cousin as well) I do feel that 2.5 is a little young for some of the projects (They do aim for 3 – 6 year olds and we knew this going in), but I am happy to see that ALL necessary items are provided (read: I had NO glue stick in my house.) We will be saving the project for a later date when we need a distraction and are looking forward to see what the box hold in upcoming months!
