When I was recently approached by My Pocket Money Toy to review their boxes, I was instantly intrigued to what it was exactly. The name itself is genius. If you give your children pocket money what better way to teach them to save it up and make somebody happy by sending some gifts in the post, or having a monthly surprise for themselves with the knowledge that they have saved up to treat themselves. I think this is a great way to teach children the value of money, but also that mummy and daddy can’t buy everything for them.
My Pocket Money Toy was founded for a couple of reasons. Firstly to help out busy parents that simply have a lack of time. Also a lack of good quality toys in your local shops. The team behind My Pocket Money Toy developed the subscription service because they have a genuine love of subscription boxes.
All the toys are tested by them as a family to make sure they are of good quality.
My five year old twin girls love a surprise and this was loads of fun to do the unboxing of the My Pocket Money Toy Christmas Eve box and I had a daddy christmas box too! You can see the unboxing video below.
The Christmas Eve box has been filled with lots of things which will be perfect for Christmas Eve and this is what the girls got in their box.
The Christmas Eve box is a one off purchase with no need to subscribe. It’s fantastic value priced at just £30 for the children, and £15 for the daddy box. So why not spoil your little ones and daddy this Christmas Eve. Order your Christmas Eve box here

2. A chocolate pizza looking very festive
3. Hot chocolate lolly
4. A reindeer ornament for the Christmas tree
Everything in both boxes has been well picked to make any childs’ eyes light up and get excited about Christmas.
As I have mentioned this is a subscription service, but I think this has been well thought out to cater for children of all ages.
There are three age groups, 3-5 years old, 6-7 years old and 8-10 years old. There is also a 3 monthly subscription you can sign up to. In fact there are many options to choose from.
if you click here you can see them all with prices. Placing an order couldn’t be simpler just three steps.
Step 1. Age
Choose the age group required. We tailor our boxes from 3 to 10 years.
Step 2. Gender
Choose between a boy box, girl box, or a gender neutral box.
Step 3. Set Up Subscription
Confirm details and your first box will soon be on it’s way. Boxes may be cancelled at any time.
It really is that simple. I particularly like that they do a gender neutral box and also that your subscription can be cancelled at any time.
One other fantastic added extra for your children is the stamp book. There are ten spaces to fill with your stickers. Once that is done you can claim a free gift to the value of your subscription. Claiming it also couldn’t be easier, you just tweet or post a picture of your completed stamp book and it will be all sorted and sent out to you, how good is that.
My overall opinion of the My Pocket Money Toy is 100% positive. It really is great quality and every child or parent loves a surprise in the post.
So if you are looking for something to give this Christmas it could be you are a grandparent, uncle or auntie or just a friend that can’t be there for their loved ones this Christmas, then this is the perfect way to let them know you are thinking of them and love them.
