I was extremely lucky to be sent the first Cureadosity box to review before Christmas.
Cureadosity is an uncomplicated picture book subscription box for 2-6 year olds. It aims to bring little ones a diverse range of stories and make reading time a fun and enjoyable experience for all!
The selection of books for the first box was really strong. It featured our favourite picture books of 2020 (I Really Really Need a Wee by Karl Newson and Duncan Beedie) and the equally brilliant Afraid of the Dark by Lucy Farfort, Isabel Otter and Sarah Shaffi. The third book was Couch Potato by Jory John and Pete Oswald which was an immediate hit in our house and was read numerous times over the Christmas holiday. I will try to post a stand alone review of it next week.
Also in the box were two I Really Really Need a Wee activities and a beautiful print from Gustavo the Shy Ghost by Flavia Z. Drago.
A lot of thought had clearly been put into the choices, and all three books were recent releases (so you're unlikely to already own them) It saves money too - a monthly subscription cost £20, and a quick search for these books on Amazon, suggests their current combined value is £25 (excluding the exclusive print) - so a Cureadosity box supports a small business AND saves money, which is a rare but brilliant combination!
Overall, I was really impressed by the selection and the quality of the box. It was so exciting to receive it in the post and open it up without knowing what we would find inside.
There's a lot of choice in subscription models too, allowing you to have them delivered monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly. I received this box free, for review, but I do plan on taking out my own subscription, probably going for the quarterly option. I think this could be a really nice treat for small children currently stuck at home during lockdown (I know we're definitely reading more picture books at the moment!)
If you would like to take out your own subscription, you can get 10% off your first box with the code UNBOX10. The deadline for January's box has just passed, but you can sign up now ready for a February picture book treat.
