Try the World

I’m always searching for cool things to try, so my first adventure (for Bela) was LootCrate.  My friend, Lisa, was telling me how cool it was, so we tried it.

I stumbled upon the Try the World boxes recently, and when I got the “buy the Japan box, get the Paris box free,” I figured it was as good a time as any to give Try the World a shot.  Our box of food came today!  It was heavier than I had anticipated, but I took it home joyfully.

Our lavender honey had leaked a bit in the Paris box, but the seal was intact.

LootCrate!

I ordered my daughter a LootCrate (for the second time).  When I picked it up from the post office yesterday, I opened it to get a sneak peek.  (I’m bad, I know.)  Ysabela was thrilled to unpack it herself.

I had to open it.

I saw the cats, but I didn't notice the skull until I snapped the pic.

Since Bela already has one of these USB drives, she let me keep this one.

The cats and dogs went crazy for the Hexbug.

LootCrate!

Bela got her first LootCrate this week.  I got her the April crate as part of her birthday present(s).  She was thrilled with the contents.  I was happy because she was happy.  The LootCrate was smaller than I expected, but it was definitely mighty!  A lot of good stuff was packed inside.  I was surprised to see how economical the monthly subscription is for LootCrate.  I may have to make this a regular thing for her.

Bela couldn't wait to open it!
