Back to Preschool Giveaway Blast: Sponsor Spotlight- Frecklebox

Tots and Me

Welcome to another Back to Preschool Giveaway Blast Sponsor Spotlight in anticipation of the giveaway which starts on August 8th (that is this week!). 

From the website:

In the spirit of my Back to Preschool Blast Giveaway I had asked if I could review some of their Personalized Coloring Books
Here is a little information about them from the site.
Frecklebox personalized coloring books are the ultimate party favor. Each of our childrens coloring books feature the child’s name on every page.Coloring books have 20 pages, printed with black ink on 70# white opaque text. The covers are printed in color on 10pt. C1s cover stock. The book is saddle-stitched. Finish size is 8.5" x 11". Each book comes with a set of four crayons. "

The books come packaged in a zippy bag with the crayons enclosed.
I also chose to get the girls a sticker set each, which are also enclosed in zippy bags.

The girls absolutely loved that their names are on these books. When I opened the package upon arrival Tabitha and Amelia were literally jumping for joy. They couldn't wait for Hannah to wake up from her nap to show her.

 I chose the In the Garden Activity books for Tabitha and Amelia because, while I know they like to color, they also enjoy mazes and such. I also wanted them to get some practice with reading. Besides, it's the time of year for bugs and gardens. Tabitha seems to think the flower on the cover is her, and she is quite proud of that. She also likes that there is a ladybug next to her. 

The first page is a coloring page with the name quite prominent. 
There are many coloring pages where their names are just there. But what I like the most are the pages where they are actually being interacted with. This truly makes it their book.

I chose an alphabet book for Hannah because we are going to be working on Letter of the Week this year. I thought it would be great for her to have a page to color for each letter we are on.

One of the first things I noticed while they were coloring was how vibrant the crayons are.

Amelia finished her first page and moved on to some other pages right away. 

I really didn't know she could do a maze so well.

Tabitha didn't get to finish her first page because she is being so careful it is taking her a while. I told her she could come back to it as I didn't want her to get frustrated. I want to make sure they are doing their best work.

Tabitha enjoyed the maze and the "find the different caterpillar" pages. Though she did need some help with that caterpillar. I love these kind of activities because they help develop fine motor skills and visual discrimination skills. I just wish there were more of them in the book. There is only one of each.

Hannah just went to town. She wasn't quite as impressed with the whole personalization thing. But we will use the opportunity to teach her name on each page.

I had to stop her because I wanted to make sure we could use this book for our lesson time. 
They were each allowed to use one sticker and save the rest for another time. 
There are so many coloring books and stickers to choose from, but I think I made pretty good decisions for the girls. They really enjoyed these books and can't wait to get them out again. In fact, Hannah was just about devastated when I put it away so she could work on something else. 

Here is a list of all the gifts Frecklebox carries:

Disclosure: I received  these products from for free as a part of my Back to Preschool Blast Giveaway. This did not in any way influence my review. I only recommend products I use personally and will be good for my readers.

  3. I just love this idea and website! My youngest son is already almost 11yrs old, but struggles with severe emotional, mental and intellectual disabilities from being severely shaken when he was only 2yrs old. So this is the sort of thing that I love getting for him- and which absolutely makes his day! Having personalized crafts, coloring books, and various activities are not only fun for him, but also encourage him to push forward and continue adding new skills to his abilities (all while feeling like he is just coloring or playing with activity books!) Absolutely awesome product for all kids : )

  4. I really wish I had bought the "My Name Is" book for my middle child when he was learning his name...he would have loved it.
