I love the Surprise box/pack. I look forward each time seeing what is included. There have been many items that can be used by me or our children. If there are items that I can not use, I donate them to our church's pantry or to the church library. The donation items are always appreciated.
I have even given items out as Halloween treats. If I travel I take some of the extra items with me to give out to fussing kids on the plane. It usually keeps them busy for a while and gives the parent they are traveling with a break.
I received this box with hopes for some things for my kids that they would like. I did recieve 4 quality items in the box, but the other 6 were poor quality and are listed in the clearance section of the website. I understand that some items are not going to be high quality, but I could buy the items in this box individually for just over the listed price of the box. One of the books I received was a book that was already on the same order, so now I have 2 copies of the same book, but only wanted one. I will not be ordering this box again.
I order a surprise box off and on throughout the year. With its perfect mix of items I have little gifts for showers, birthday parties, stocking stuffers, and easter baskets. I also use this box to stock my treasure box at home for my kids as well as for my students in my homeschool co-op classes. I love the variety aspect!
I ordered this for my Sunday School and Children's Church for Christmas. It was an excellent gift. I found something for each of the children. I also prayed about what to get and found the mystery box great. I looked at what I got and thought about each individual child and matched it. It was great.
Everything that I received was very age appropriate for my gift list and surprised that everything was so nice. Four DVDs with Bible stories just right for any age....this was a nice shipment of surprises....try it once.....I have to
say if you have no young children it may not work for you..
