Review: My Pocket Money Toy Subscription Box


Subscription boxes are all the rage these days, from food and flowers to beauty and toys there's something available for everyone. I really like the idea of a subscription box, it just seems so handy to get a box of goodies you love delivered straight to your door. Plus the element of surprise every time it arrives is thrilling. It's like having a birthday every month!


At the end of June the family and I were heading down to Leicestershire and a chance meeting at Tebay Services meant we bumped into the lovely Shirley from My Pocket Money Toy. Shirley's lovely company runs a pocket money subscription box service which means your child can have a fun box full of toys delivered every month and it's definitely something they can spend their own pennies on if they want. It's always good to teach kids about money from a young age a what a good way to start.


Shirley kindly asked if Logan would like to review a few boxes of My Pocket Money Toy and we eagerly agreed. From the website you can see that a lot of thought has been put into the kind of toys included in this subscription service with brands such as Galt, Orchard Toys and BrainBox to name a few. Definitely quality products compared to other boxes I've seen on the market.


It's simple and easy to subscribe as well. You can either order a one of box, which would be quite good for a long trip in the car or holiday flight treat, or you can get a subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months. The boxes are split into age groups of 3-5, 6-7 and 8-10 years. You can also choose whether you want a boy or girl box or gender neutral which is a really nice touch. Harlow is a bit young for these boxes since she's only 2.5 years old however Shirley was kind enough to include a couple of little toys for her so she didn't feel left out.


Logan was super thrilled to receive his My Pocket Money Toy box and couldn't wait to rip it open. Inside was a little card saying "Hope you enjoy your Space box!" and since we'd recently been to the National Space Centre in Leicester it made Logan even more excited that he had a box full of space themed goodies.

Included in the box was; a Ladybird Mad About Space book, Glow in the Dark space shapes, light up Gyro Wheel, glow in the dark bouncy Moon Balls, colouring in sheets and a sticker book. The sticker book is a great little thing. You collect a sticker every time you get a box and once your book is full you get a free toy! Harlow received two cute little finger puppets in the box as well along with some colouring in sheets for her.


The box really was a big hit in our house and Logan couldn't have been any happier to receive it. We opened it when Harlow was in her bed so he would have time to look through his box without disruption and I managed to get a little video too. It's a bit hectic and I forgot to turn my phone horizontal (because I'm an idiot) but I hope you like it.


I was sent a box in return for an honest review

Ooh thats such a great idea - my little one is a bit too small for it at the moment but it would definitely be something we'd look into! xx
