Box Date: February 2019
Theme: Lost and Found
February’s Owlcrate Jr theme was Lost and Found, and this was yet another fantastically fun box!
As you can see, there are a lot of great and useful items this month. I honestly don’t think anything is going to be left on a shelf as things from boxes sometimes do. This makes me happy, as I’m trying to condense sub box stuff I’ve gotten and clean up my office and nothing here will feel wasted on me.
The theme being lost and found meant that the themed artwork featured mazes! So our spoiler card, info booklet, and monthly button all have the same lovely little hedge maze featured on them, which reminds me of Harry Potter! Yet another great little button from Owlcrate Jr.
I absolutely love when boxes have bath bombs in them. I always use these for baths and they’re such a great excuse to treat myself! This is good because as a mom I tend to forget about self care.
We also got this cute little bookmark featuring a nice little quote about getting lost in the stacks on one side and found in the page on the other. Very clever! Bookmarks for young people tend to have the little tassels. I’m not sure why, but that’s just how it feels. So as cute as this is, I’ll likely save it for Madeline. The cat would immediately yank this from my book the first time I set it down and walked away.
There was also a Where’s Waldo activity book, which I already know Madeline and I are going to have a blast doing! But then it also comes with a little game, which is super fun! I can’t wait to spend some times doing this with her.
Next we have a little banner featuring the ever popular Tolkien quote about being lost. I know some people will consider this a pin banner, but I actually think this one will stay as it is and grace Madeline’s room instead. Then again, I’ve got enough Tolkien pins to use it for a themed pin banner, so we will see what I do at some point that isn’t today.
And finally we have the book! I read Anne Ursu’s first book forever ago so it was fun to see her appearing for me again! This book sounds like a lot of fun, and it came with a signed bookplate, author letter, and a little booklet of mazes (which makes my maze-loving self very happy)
Overall I’m really happy with this box and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next month in the Birds of a Feather theme! It’s going to be amazing, I just know it!
