Unboxing the October BuriBox

October Buribox

Busy, busy, busy!

(Then again, I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t busy. I’m sure you can relate!)

Right now, after a full week of work, I’m squeezing in some real estate duties (I’m a licensed broker *hint hint*), blogging duties (obviously), and a bit of mothering. I’m sure that last bit made me look like the worst mum in the world. Truth is I’m relishing Yuri’s newfound independence. He’s still clingy — a lot clingier than other kids his age, seemingly — but most of the time, he does fine on his own.

One of my frustrations as a mum, though, is the lack of time (and budget) to look for stuff that will keep him entertained other than the tablet. When I was still freelancing, I had all the time in the world to shop for supplies, but now that I have a full-time job to attend to, time is a luxury I sometimes can’t afford.

So when I heard about BuriBox from Janice’s blog, I couldn’t be more excited. What put a damper on my spirits, though, is learning that they didn’t deliver outside Metro Manila. But that was before. Last month, Janice offered a promo wherein you can receive a BuriBox and just pay for the shipping fee. Of course I grabbed the opportunity!

We received the October BuriBox and here’s what’s inside:

Many activity sheets (I wasn’t able to count how many exactly!)
One colouring book
One logic book
Two board books
Poster colours
Non-toxic clay and mould
One box of crayons
Parent’s guide

Alas, this is the fate of ALL boxes coming in from Manila

I coloured this one (the bottom fish). Yuri didn’t like how I didn’t follow the guide above…

Obviously, Yuri and I had lots of fun playing and learning with our BuriBox. Will I subscribe and buy more boxes in the future? Quite possibly but definitely not this month because it’s Christmas and the presents (and expenses) can get quite overwhelming. I’m thinking of getting boxes each month every summer to prepare Yuri for formal school (will blog about it in the near future!).

Overall, I’m very satisfied with the BuriBox. It’s very attractive to the young ones but at the same time, quality of the learning materials is not compromised. More importantly, each and every component of the box contributes to the child’s learning experience.

      We haven’t tried buribox, but I remember signing up to receive one. I don’t know if its for a free trial or should I pay to push through with the order. This is a good way to spent the time other than my son’s addiction watching minecraft on youtube and playing on ps4.
