When a box is more than a box.

I'm so excited to be doing my first review with help from Madison! Last week while searching for some fun "green toys" for my very imaginitive preschooler I came across fridge box! Next thing I know there is a HUGE box being delivered to my front door. At this point I don't know who was more excited, Madison or me! We immediatly tore open the box and found two of Fridge Box's cotttage/shop kits and a flower shop sticker kit. I wasn't exactly expecting on "creating" a masterpiece yesterday afternoon but I knew there was no chance that we would be able to wait until after a trip to the craft store for some supplies! So we got out some paints, brought everything outside and went to town! Within minutes Madison was placing stickers all over the box and painting designs on her "food store".
After about an hour of decorating and painting the box we decided to bring Madison's market inside to cool off and play. For the rest of the evening she was taking orders through the market's window, cooking on the play stove that we made and serving anyone who was willing to play along. The first thing she said this morning while still half asleep was "Mommy can we play with my market?". Needless to say the fridge box was a huge hit and it didn't matter how creative or uncreative we were with the decorating because it would have been fun no matter what it looked like! Even better yet is the fact that I have another one stored away for a rainy day!
Fridge Box not only has the cottage/shop. There is also a pirate ship and a race car kit to choose from and all different sticker kits. They also offer the Fridge Box Color Kit featuring eco-friendly mixes from Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company. Plus for those of you who need some creative assistance you can check out the Fridge Blog. This is seriously a fun, creative way to explore you child's imagination and to keep him/her busy for hours at a time! We love Fridge Box!

What's in the box?
