Box-O-Mania™ Review

It is no secret that my children will play for hours in a box…..dress it up a bit and I have to coax them out with food and water. Box-O-Mania™ was such a huge hit with my little ones that I think they may have actually “moved out” and into their new playhouse. The best part of the Box-O-Mania™ playhouse? It was created by a 12 year old girl named Anna Tselevich who became inspired by a refrigerator box age 4 and wanted to create a modern “permanent playhouse that could be decorated and customized”. I found Anna’s story inspiring and you too can read the article here.

My children have a “city”  of box play sets in their play room and the Box-O-Mania™ is at the very top of their favorites list. I liked that their playhouse was very easy to assemble and took less than 15 minutes as my children stood by in eager anticipation, eyes wide. I also appreciated the tutorial video on the website that shows you exactly how to assemble the product. This is one extremely well constructed playhouse and it is not going to fall apart after a few hours of play with my rough and tumble little ones. In fact the Box-O-Mania™ playhouse is lightweight at only 16 pounds and is made of 100% corrugated plastic.

The decorating part is taken very seriously by my kids and you should have seen their expressions of excitement when they saw that the Box-0-Mania™ playhouse kit included 5 sheets of huge reusable stickers to the theme of a Fire House, Beauty Salon, Home or Club House. Applying the stickers just so to their playhouse literally occupied them for 2 hours while I cleaned the entire house and had a cup of coffee……..priceless. They also used washable (and erasable) markers to make it just “perfect.” I also discovered that Box-0-Mania™products can be inter-connected to make a bigger play area if space permits. It even includes a storage box to transport or store the playhouse.

If you agree that this would make the perfect holiday present for someone special you still have time to find a store near you to buy Box-0-Mania™. I used the handy store locator on the Box-0-Mania™ website and the closest store to me is at Sears.

You can use the store locator to find the store near you.

Now….if you will please excuse me, I miss my children and plan to visit them in their “new home”  to get some quality time. What was that secret knock again?
