Review: Kindercone

We wrapped up our school year a few weeks ago, so it was with great fun we received a Kindercone to review around the same time!  I have heard of Kindercones in the past, and put together something similar when my boys started 1st grade, so I was interested in seeing this product.  Basically, it's a German tradition of receiving a cone of goodies for kids moving from Kindergarten into First Grade.

The cone we received was very large and colorful! It included some pencils, a sweet stuffed animal (which Lydia loves and took as her own immediately), some tattoos and a journal for first grade. I added some small notebooks and candy to the cone before I presented it to my children.

It is definitely cute, and a sweet gift to receive at the end of a long school year.  You can purchase them filled with goodies, or empty from the Kindercone website. They also sell smaller ones, and plain white ones which would be a fun party favor.  They are a perfect gift for this time of year, or even in the weeks leading up to a new school year.

*Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of KinderCone and received KinderCone samples to facilitate my review. Mom Central also sent me gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.*

  1. We lived in Germany for four years; they are not restricted to first graders. Many children are given one as a gift on the first day of the new school year. They can be quite large
