Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Surprise Ride Box Review and Giveaway #surpriseride #giveaway

Kids today are either over-scheduled or over-consumed with electronics, so it can be hard to find time to plan crafts and activities.  Or it can be just plain hard to get kids to turn off their electronic devices and spend some time unplugged.   My Teenie loves to do crafts, art and experiments....basically anything "hands-on"...  sometimes I just don't have time to gather together materials for her and I end up with a bored kid.  So when we were chosen to review a Surprise Ride box we were really excited, because this was a company that  was featured on Shark Tank, one of my family's favorite shows to watch together!

Surprise Ride a monthly subscription service that sends a fun, themed box of educational activities to kids.  These boxes are aimed toward kids ages 6-11 and include a fun snack to go along with the hands-on fun.  The company is currently expanding their line to making Surprise Ride boxes for grown ups (how fun is that?)!  All to often families nowadays are caught up in the busy hustle of everyday life. So the geniuses at Surprise Ride have most recently worked with country music superstar Sara Evans and Hidden Valley Original Ranch,  to develop a super cool box full of fun activities and nutritious recipes to help bring families together.

Teenie couldn't wait to get her hands on her Surprise Ride box and when it arrived, she couldn't wait to open it up.  Check out our video unboxing.

Teenie gives Surprise Ride two thumbs up! The box we opened honors Native Americans with a Pow Wow theme.  She had a great time putting together her drum and dream catcher crafts and running around the house with the rattle and slide whistle.

I think Surprise Ride is a great idea for busy families that don't have the time to plan crafts and activities. I think this would be a great gift for boys and girls and is a great way to encourage kids to spend time doing something other than playing computer games or watching TV.  Surprise Ride offers several different subscription options, starting at $29.99 for a month to month subscription, buy a year and the price drops to $24.99 a month, both prices include free shipping.  For more information, visit
