Mila & Pheebs create stationery and activity boxes for children. They contain a mixture of stationery, crafts, stickers, and fun items, based around a different theme each month. It’s £10 per month plus £2.99 P&P.
This month’s theme is Walk the Plank!
There’s a lovely newsletter in every Mila & Pheebs box. It’s got jokes and trivia, bright colours, and the font is very easy to read.
This month’s craft kits are a hand puppet to sew and a keyring to make.
There were several possible designs of both, but we got the parrot hand puppet…
and the skull keyring!
Mila & Pheebs always have fantastic stickers. There’s a sheet of lovely shiny stickers, plus some terrific chunky foam designs.
Sorry this picture is a bit blurred.) That little notebook has the pirate picture on all the sheets! Little C enjoyed changing the pictures to girl pirates. There’s also a fun parrot pencil, whose rubber has a real feather for a tail! And this month’s tiny cute eraser is a whale shark. These rubbers are far too nice to use, we have a lovely collection of them in our living room!
There are always two blank greetings cards in every box. Check out the nautical pattern on the blue one!
Here are the word game and colouring sheets.
Little C is always very keen on word puzzles!
There was also a blank treasure map to design. We haven’t done it yet, but you can stain it with tea to make it look old!
Mila & Pheebs boxes are always nicely self contained. There’s generally very little mess, except a few bits of sticker backing, and there’s a great mixture of free and organized creativity.
The hand puppet especially is great for imaginative play. And children seem to love keyrings, they always go down very well with Little C.
I think this would be especially good for taking on holiday, or on a long journey. It’s almost entirely self contained, so all you need to add are scissors (and maybe not even those!), some paper, and colouring pens, and you’ve got a great stash of fun to take away. It’s also really handy for a rainy day, or as a treat in the holidays.Depending on the age of the child a varying amount of supervision would be required, but this is definitely something to enjoy with your child.
I really like this month’s box. The theme gave us lots of bright colours and imagination, and who doesn’t love pirates? Little C’s one question was why there weren’t any girl pirates!
