Kids Parcel is a new company offering mystery surprise boxes. If you’re looking for something different to surprise your kids with, or to give as a gift, then a Kids Parcel box offers a fun solution. If your kids enjoy watching unboxing videos on YouTube then they’ll probably love their own surprise box to open up at home too!
We were sent one mystery surprise box for review, and I decided to get the box for my youngest, R, age 5. Each box is picked with the child’s age and gender in mind (or you can go for a gender neutral option), and contains a minimum of 5 gifts.
We didn’t know what to expect inside the box, but R and I were both really happy with the contents. I was very pleased to see lots of recognisable brands among the toys, as you know the type of quality you’ll get with familiar brands, and R was excited to see some of his favourite characters like Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Here’s the full contents of our mystery surprise box, above:
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles transforming Leo
- Star Wars Hero Mashers Darth Maul (Hasbro)
- Star Wars Light Up Light Saber (Flair)
- Lego DC Super heroes Justice League DVD
- Despicable Me Die Cast Vehicle
- Pack of Playing Cards
There’s quite a good mix of items, with the DVD being included and some smaller toys along with the two main larger ones.
R’s favourite items were definitely the two larger toys – the TMNT figure and the Star Wars hero masher.
Luckily, he collects Star Wars hero mashers, so he was really happy to add this one to his collection as they’re all compatible to mix and match together!
I would say the boxes suit children who do have quite popular interests and are familiar with most of the popular television and movie characters aimed at their age group, as a lot of the items inside the box are character based. If you’re looking for slightly more ‘quirky’ or off beat unusual gifts then the KidsParcel boxes don’t really offer that – but I find with my kids that these type of popular character toys always go down really well, so they can be a safer bet.
There are also specific Disney or Star Wars boxes that you can choose from the site, if your child is particularly into one of those and you want to be sure that the box will include those interests.
All of the Mystery Surprise Boxes are available for 29.99 each, which is a fair price considering the minimum items included are 5 items within the box. Looking at the toys included in our box, the two larger toys tend to be around 10.00 each in toy shops, leaving another 10.00 to cover the DVD and smaller toys – which does seem about right.
I would recommend giving KidsParcel Mystery Surprise boxes a try. Our box was a hit with R, and opening up a surprise box to see what’s inside is always a lot of fun!
