I received a Songbird Box Subscription sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
With my just turned 2 year old at home with me all the time I can admit to sometimes not knowing what to "play" with her. I want to keep things fresh and interesting for us both! A Songbird Box subscription provides at-home music education for early childhood development. A box of fun with instructions sent directly to my door is exactly what I am talking about when I say I need some play inspiration! Studies show that the average child spends 2 hours in front of a screen each day and most spend more time on a cell phone than engaging in activities with their parents. I do not want to be a parent like that!
Songbird Box brings the countless benefits of music on early childhood education directly to the doorstep of families across the United States. Their services makes learning music simple and fun for the entire family. Whenever we get our box out my 7 and 10 year old daughters always jump in because they want to play too!
Everything is packaged neatly and with a sheet letting you know what everything is. I really like the song guides because I am not great at picking and singing songs but with the words right in front of me I am all about it! Of course Baby Sis LOVES when we sing together and these little songs with included play suggestions are AMAZING!
Each Box Includes:
song guide with lessons
materials for a musical activity
creative fun for the whole family
Key benefits of Songbird Box on early childhood development include improved language and math development, coordination and motor skills, focus and memory, teamwork and discipline and social-emotional skills.
I ADORE this book and I enjoy reading/singing it over and over again. I had not even thought of this song in years so it was nice to be reminded of the song and the book pictures are ADORABLE. This book also comes with a music CD which we play all the time now. All 3 will get up and dance and sing when I play it.
I can't even get a clear picture of Baby Sis dancing because she is constantly in motion when I put on the CD. She loves to throw the playsilks in the air repeatedly.
This particular kit also included a build your own drum. All 3 enjoyed decorating it and of course Baby Sis loves to "play" on her drum repeatedly.
These items have been played with several times a week over the course of several weeks. She has them on her little music shelf and she enjoys playing with them over and over. I really like that this box sends toys I probably would not have picked out on my own so this subscription box is great for her and for me. It gives us some play suggestions we can do together and I am learning more about how to incorporate music into play with songs, toys and books. Little ones certainly love to make sounds and I do believe that music is an important part of a toddler's growth.
Songbird has officially launched with options to purchase single boxes, month-to-month and longer-term discount subscriptions. A Songbird Box Subscription would make a great new mom gift, a birthday gift or even a gift for yourself to bring new and exciting music play into your home.
