Here’s another fun review! Let me start with saying I love Giggle Junction! The I Spy Bags are so much fun!! We received the Pirate Girl I Spy bag for review. I’m sure they had no idea about my girls’ love for pirates when they chose this particular bag to send us. Needless to say it was a huge hit. I now take this thing everywhere! It’s always with us. Handy for waiting in line, waiting at the Dr.’s office. Grocery Shopping, any time you need to keep your LO occupied quietly.
What is an I Spy Bag you say? Well they are so much fun! The bags are 7x7 inches square. They are filled with non toxic plastic pellets, along with 30 miniature items to “spy”. They are then secured inside and turned and top stitched for extra strength. There’s an awesome embroidered decoration and a little spy window for finding the items.
I had no idea how cute they would be in person. Another thing I like is how soft they are! They are made of flannel. It makes you want to touch and pick them up and play with them! I’m a tactile person though. When I go through the curtain section, or the towel section at any store, I’m always the person rubbing the fabric between my fingers. I do the same with this little cutie! Here is a picture of the back: As you can see way cute coordinating fabric! Love how colorful they are!
I have tried this on kids of all ages, and adults! Everyone has had fun searching for the items, believe it or not adults have usually played with it the longest! One big perk about this company is the fact that they have actually taken the time to take pictures of the items, instead of listing them by name. That way pre-readers can take advantage of the fun too! Here’s a picture of the attached card:
I had pictures that I took, but I had to use ones off their website. Mine were not loading right. Boo! Okay, anyway moving along, I really enjoy having one of these around. They are very handy for quiet play and help encourage development of fine motor skills too, which I love. We don’t allow a lot of computer games, video games, or television at our house and it’s always nice to have something else creative and colorful for the kids to enjoy. I totally recommend picking one of these up!
Guess what!! They are letting a lucky reader win one!! Winners choice! You can choose any bag from their Etsy shop! Yeah those are always fun! Don’t forget to show them some love from us!
