Summary Review

​Both the kids and the parents from Musical Youth Club were impressed with Toucan Box, with a number saying that they would consider subscribing to a monthly box.

Getting the kids engaged with crafts and activities can sometimes be hard work for parents, either you don't have all the correct materials or other distractions like the TV or games consoles seem​ to take priority.

Having the Toucan box delivered in your children's name really adds a level of excitement when it arrives. The packaging is fun and inviting and the kids can't wait to see whats inside.

Now you have their attention, you can sit down with them, spend some quality time away from the TV and have some creative fun together. ​Well recommended!


A big thank you to everyone at Musical Youth Leicester  for taking part in the box opening video.
