Sassy Kids Box Review - the Popcorn Olympics.

We were sent a Sassy Kids Box to review.
Sassy Bloom have been making wonderful gift boxes for babies and toddlers and are now extending their range to activity boxes for three to eight year olds.

I received a box for the Little Man who is five and he loved it. First of all he loved actually receiving a parcel in the post just for him, and he enjoyed opening it.

Our box focused on popcorn and contained a little packed of popping corn. The Little Man thought they were seeds at first but we put them in a pan and he was really excited watching them pop.

This short video shows the Little Man opening his Sassy Kids Box and then making the popcorn.

After making the popcorn we got ready to start our Popcorn Olympics. All the games were detailed on the leaflet in the box. We worked through each one and kept a record on the score card. The box contained a medal for the winner of the games which ended up being shared by Boo and the Little Man. I didn't think Star would join in as she is ten now and doesn't normally take part in games like this, but she came in shortly after we had started and had just as much fun as her siblings.
We played for about an hour and the kids had so much fun.
Here are the games we played;

  • Popcorn Toothpick Swap (toothpicks were included in the box)
  • Popcorn Throw
  • Popcorn Cup Drop
  • Popcorn Straw Blow (straws were included in the box)
  • Popcorn Distance Throw
  • Popcorn Cup
  • Popcorn Darts (a paper dart board was included in the box)
  • Popcorn Catch

This short video shows the highlight of the games and you can see how much fun they were having.

After the Popcorn Olympics were over the popcorn that had not been eaten and had ended up on the floor was used for a bonus craft activity outlined in the box. The activity was for one but I only had to provide another small piece of card for Boo to join in too. In the box was 1 sheet of card, a glue stick and a pair of scissors.
We cut out the sheep from the card and glued on the popcorn to make it's woolly coat.

The Little Man then completed the Extra fun Alphabet challenge which was all about food and then there was a Family Fun game to play to music.

Also in the box were colouring sheets and a little fact card which included a Good Deed challenge This was to make a craft or bake some cakes for an elderly friend, relative or neighbour. We are going to make a cake for nanny who is having a tough time at the moment.

If I am honest I was surprised at how much fun was packed into the little box. The regular price for a box is £3.99 plus postage of 99p and it's a regular delivery but you can cancel at any time. You can get your first box for just £1.99. visit for more details.

Disclosure: we were sent a Sassy Kids box to review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. Oh how interesting to see your popcorn popping in the glass lidded pan! I've only made it in the microwave before in those bags that you buy and you can't see it all happening!

    1. I've never made it in a glass lidded pan before, we watched it for over 3 mins!

  2. Oh what fun! I generally just scoff it, never knew there were so many fun things to do with popcorn!

  3. oohhh this looks like such great fun!!! who knew popcorn wasn't just for eating xx

  4. What a great idea , it would make a great gift for a young one.

  5. We got ours today, can't wait to pop the corn the old fashioned way and see Emma having fun with this activities!xx

  6. That looks like an enormous lot of fun, will have to have a look into Sassy Box for my two :)

  7. My daughters would have loved this when they were younger. Who knew that popcorn could be so much fun as well as a tasty snack?!

  8. I LOVE watching popcorn pop!! What fun subscription box this one is - there really are boxes for everyone these days :D

  9. What a fab fun idea for a subscription box. I love that it is full of activities. How ace

  10. I'd never consider using popcorn as entertainment in this way. Genius! The box does seem very reasonably priced, too.

  11. What a fun box and love all the activities with the popcorn. I'm tempted to get some and make it in a pan now - we only make it in the microwave which is much less fun.

  12. Now that looks the best game to play on a rainy day!

  13. looks like lots of fun. Can't believe how grown up your little man is looking! x

    1. Oh isn't he just. I remember when he came to visit me in hospital and I hadn't seen him for a week, I was taken aback because I hadn't noticed how grown up he had become. x

  14. Wjho knew you could do so much with popcorn - I love it x

  15. What a great idea for a subscription box, sounds like you had loads of fun. We love popcorn here although it's just dawned on me we haven't made it from scratch POD would just love that!
