First, the presentation of this box is beautiful and neat. We open the box to tissue paper secured with a gold sticker (an "extra fancy" sticker that my 5 year-old thoroughly enjoys). Most items are wrapped neatly + individually, which makes for greater anticipation, and helps my daughter savor each item.
The items inside the box are intentional and thoughtful. As a house rule, we try to keep only quality toys and play things, and we have kept all items we've received thus far. One of my daughter's favorite things we received is her fancy, handmade necklace. She hardly takes it off!
Something that makes this box stand out from the others is that the parent is not forgotten. Gwen includes a small, useful gifts for us, too. I even find myself looking forward to this box! Talk about Happy Mail!
Before the box was even shipped, we received a letter (envelope + stamp) from one of the characters in the ballet to spread out the joy, this was SO FUN for my daughter. I especially love this, it makes the ballet come more alive.
Included with the subscription is a dance class with whatever theme goes with the box. The video is so captivating not only for my daughter (5), but my son (3) also participates too. We can watch it as many times as we'd like (perfect for hectic evenings or rainy days). The music is lovely, much like classic ballet, music that I enjoy having on...
