This is a review for Whimsy Mail.

Whimsy Mail

First Look

The December box is themed "Christmas Morning". The product info sheet includes a "Fun Fact". This one is about Santa:
When visiting Finland, Santa leaves his sleigh behind and rides on a goat named Ukko. Finnish folklore has it that Ukko is made of straw, but is strong enough to carry Santa Claus anyway.

Wilton Metal Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter ($3)
The cookie cutter comes with a recipe for Gingerbread cookies. This is an activity for kids and parents. An afternoon of baking can be a lot of fun!

Kikkerland GLOW Waterproof Glow-in-the-Dark Playing Cards ($12)
Who doesn’t love things that glow in the dark and who doesn’t love playing cards.  Put them together and you have the perfect recipe for fun!  Place near light to charge - glow lasts two hours per charge.  Check out the fun card game we have included. 
This pack of cards comes with instructions for a game called Doubt It. It's for 6-12 players, ages 6 and up. It's fun for the whole family!

These mugs are sure to bring a smile to even the grumpiest of mornings.  Indulge in your hot chocolate stick with your brand new Lazy One Mug.
I love this mug. It's oversize and comes complete with everything needed for a delicious cup of hot chocolate! Such a cute idea and now the "tween" in your life has her own personal mug.

Enjoy these hot chocolates on a stick, simply follow package instructions  and stir your hot chocolate stick into warm milk.  Impossible to not take a few licks of warm chocolate as you stir:) These are absolutely delicious!! Popbar - bringing the fun factor to treats on a stick! 
This is genius. Stir the chocolate stick into a cup of steamed milk and let the premium blend of fine chocolate melt away. Top with mini marshmallows for a delicious treat. 

Add a fun and festive touch to your Christmas tree with these adorable bungee jumping snowman ornaments.

Whimsy Mail Creations Ankle Sweaters (~$15)
These super cool handcrafted ankle sweaters are sure to make you the envy of all of your friends.  Available exclusively to Whimsy Mail subscribers we are sure you are going to love stepping out in these fashionable fun accessories.
These are very cool! I know them as "boot cuffs" but ankle sweaters is a super cute term. I bet any tween girl would love to wear these with combat boots this winter. (Price estimated based on similar styles sold on Etsy.)

Chic yet Simple, Charming & Timeless, High Quality & HandCrafted, Affordable, Everyday Goods! Made with Shea Butter, Grapeseed oil, Avocado oil, Vitamin E oil. Add a little glitter to any occasion - every girl deserves to sparkle! Proudly made in Waterford, ON.
This is a lovely handmade shimmery body balm.

The December "Whimsy Mail" box from Whimsy Mail & Putter Pails included eight items with a value around $55. Everything in here is absolutely perfect for a tween girl, especially the shimmer balm and knit "ankle sweaters". I also like that they included a couple activities that the whole family can partake. The hot chocolate kit is a fun addition as well. The products in this box seem to be perfectly suited for that hard to please 8-12 age range.
