Cardboard Adventures Knight - Review

I have a confession.  I am the Mom of a Preemie Drama Queen.  Ever since her grand grand entrance into the world (at three months premature), Little One has decided that it's either go big, or go home.  Everything she does, she does it with gusto.  It's all drama in this household.  "Spirited" is a very mild good way of describing her character.

I also have to admit that my three year old has a closet filled with costumes.  She's a drama queen, alright!  There were days when I'd have to take her on errands to the bank, post office and grocery store, decked out in her lion costume.  Other days, she'd have to dress up as a chicken and have a tea party with her stuffed animals.  Then there are the fairy and princess moments.

The good thing about having a closet full of costumes is that she can play dress up with all of her friends.  She's got costumes for everyone and no one gets left out.  Well, unless you're a boy and don't want to wear a princess fairy tutu.

This issue has been resolved. Thanks to a fantastic company called The Orb Factory, we received the Cardboard Adventures™ Knight.

In a time when brave and gallant knights protected princesses from ferocious dragons and neighbouring enemies, this cardboard knight's armour was perfect! Our little ones have great imaginations and put this costume to good use!

The box says this is suitable for children aged 4+, and with good reason. My friend and I pretty much assembled the knight's armour (okay, my friend did 99% of the assembly since I was snapping photos!). There were a few little pieces to affix and clasp so that the pieces fit together and stayed together. Do not assemble in the presence of very young children. You will lose your parts and pieces! We managed to collect all our missing pieces and all was good in the world again.

The greatest joy was the feeling of accomplishment Little One's "boy friend" (notice I didn't say "boyfriend") had when he personalized his sword and armour.  The pieces for the sword are reinforced with additional cardboard. Thank goodness too! Little One jabbed the sword into the couch. She didn't render it useless since it was reinforced.

The costume provides hours of fun, imaginative play. We were pretty curious as to how the cardboard would stand up with a bunch of 2, 3, and 4 year olds.  It was fine!

:) They had tons of fun! Cardboard boxes and cardboard costumes seem to be all kids want or need to play with! Wish I had known this ages ago! LOL!

C said...

Oh! The disguises!!! Too funny, eh? :) Just to preserve the anonymity of some of the kids (the other children's parents are okay with them being on the blog). They're fun disguises though, aren't they? LOL!

What fun! Cardboard is always a big hit with kids. I love the idea!

C said...

It's a pretty neat idea, isn't it? The kids had so much fun!

C said...

Tee hee! It's so true! Cardboard is always a winner with kids! My nieces (both teens-14 and 16) spent the day playing in huge cardboard boxes that their presents came in! I guess you're never too old! ;)
