For most part, friends who come home for the first time ask me 1 very important question ” How do you select books for your kids, and what do you look for in a book? I can tell you that it is one of the most important questions and to answer it simply – choose wisely. The books that are well – curated, intentionally picked and carefully thought out. What if, I tell you that even though you are not able to read every book in the market and the select the best for your kids, you can have some do it for you and not only that – curate an amazing Book- Based acitivity and put it all in a box and send it to your doorstep? You would say – “it is not as easy it sounds” eh? But my dear Moms and Dads – it is! With Enchantico Box!

What’s inside Enchantico Box – May Edition ?
We were sooooo excited to recieve the May Edition for 5- 7 year olds and it had
- Mangoes and Mischief by Sreedevi Gopakumar
- Around the world with a Chilli [Pratham Books]
- The Tale of Babban Hajjam [Karadi tales ]
- DIY Maracas – All materials for this. This activity was inspired by The Tale of Babbn Hajjam
- A cute Badge/ Fridge Magnet
- A Book Card <3
- 3 Author cards [ for the 3 books]
- 1 Activity Card
I absolutely loved that there were pictorial instructions for every step. So it was easy for my kids to see and do every step!
The Maracas that the kids made were so adorable and are played with everyday. Anjie was able to remember that she had seen Maracas in her Music class and that her teacher used it like this – and she mimmicked her teachers action – which was so good to see <3
Enchantico Box – Pricing!
The Subscription, for a 3 months subscription – it costs around 3800rs Approx – which is honestly a fair pricing for the books and the Quality Activities that are Provided. I love their Book Choices a lot and here are some other things I noticed
- The kids found it extremely fun that the box had special things for them alone.
- The boxes are truly age appropriate and so are the book choices.
- It reminded me that the kds truly enjoy book related activities.
- When we were doing the activity – we talked a lot about the book and How Maracas were used. We also talked about where we had seen them and what other musical instruments we knew
- the books are still beloved and Babban is truly loved.
Do I recommend Enchantico Box?
Yes, wholeheartedly recommend this box – and truth be told I just ordered my first box! I hope I can soon show you the box I chose because I loved it so. Also with the number of books being published not only Indian but foriegn – it is so good that someone does the work and chooses good – worthwhile books for you! I am so glad I got this opportunity to review – use and have fun with Enchantico Box.
