Buribox: A Box of Fun and Learning for Kids

Ever since childhood, I always love the books from Adarna books not just because of their lovely illustrations but also because of the moral lessons that we can get from every story. We all know how important all those lessons are.

So, when I learned about the Buribox from Adarna House, I didn't hesitate to jump in and avail of this because I knew this would be an amazing tool to help my daughter Bella develop her skills and learn some more while doing different activities. And I was right.


After I ordered my first Buribox, I told Bella that a surprise box will be delivered for her and since then, she had been asking me about it for days! She would always say,"Mommy, is my surprise box coming?" I would tell her to just wait.

After days that it didn't arrive yet, she said, "Mommy, I think the delivery man sent my surprise box to another house. I think it got lost." Lol! She was indeed looking forward to it!

Every time she asks "What is it?" I just tell her it is something fun that she would really love. Again, I was right because when this happy Buribox came, she was indeed very happy especially that she love books and she likes doing different activities.


Sorry for the picture though because it was evening and the light was a bit dim. I can't stop Bella from opening the box. So, I needed to take her photos although it was kind of dim.

So, the Buribox I ordered is the Toddler Buribox. But I just realized that I should have bought the ones for Young Readers because the toddler activities and books were just so baby-ish for her. And I feel that she would learn more from the Young Readers Buribox since she can already read. Anyway, at least she liked it.

The box contained hard books, poster paints, clay with molders, crayons, a coloring book and different activities. The first thing she did was play with the clay.

I also find the contents nice and could be a good way to teach Bella to learn Filipino since she speaks English and even sounds funny when she speaks Waray-Waray, our dialect.

Overall, she liked the contents of the box and the box as well because of the happy smiling design on it. It is just appropriate since it really made her smile. So, if you are interested to get a Buribox, here are the steps to do it.

1. Go to Buribox website to subscribe.
2. Choose which box you want, the Toddler Buribox (for 3-5 years old) or the Young Reader Buribox (for 6-8 years old) and click "Add to Subscriptions."
3. You will see your order on the upper side that says "Checkout." Each one costs P799 with free shipping in Metro Manila and P150 shipping fee outside MM.
4. After you click "Checkout," you will be redirected to a form that asks you to choose your billing options:
Monthly recurring (₱799)
3 months recurring - Save ₱200! (₱2,199)
6 months recurring - Get 1 month free! (₱3,996)
Then fillout all the needed information for shipping and others.
5. But you need a PayPal account with a linked credit or debit card in order to pay for your order.
6. After paying through PayPal, just wait for your Buribox to arrive.

Toddler Buribox

One good thing about this is that you can just unsubscribe anytime you want. Since I wasn't able to unsubscribe, the next Buribox was charged to my account because this is a monthly box that you can get. Hence, I am looking forward to that one.

So, if you want your kids to experience this box filled with fun activities for learning, then go ahead and avail this Buribox!
