Unboxing the Buribox Toddler



Curious what the box is all about + the “free thing” pushed me to sign up for a free Buribox that fellow blogger and owner of Mamanee’s Nest shared on the Mommy Bloggers Philippines FB Page two months back. 

There were two sets of Buribox to choose from, The Young Reader Buribox 6-8 year olds and The Toddler Buribox for 3-5 year olds. Since, I have a 2.6 year old toddler, I chose the latter. 


A few days later, with only P150.00 for the shipping cost, The Toddler Buribox landed on our doorsteps. Even though, husband was curious what the package was, he opted not to open it and waited for me to come home from the office. 


Created by Adarna House, The Buribox Toddler contains storybooks, preschool worksheets in English and Filipino, art materials and an envelope for Parents with a written guide on how to use the contents of the box. The books and the worksheets are all made of quality materials that will last long even with continuous used by kids. Oh, the box really looks cute. 


Overall, I found the box to be very useful and recommendable at a monthly subscription of P799 you’ll about 4-5 new preschool books + multiple activities and worksheets + useful art materials for our kids to enjoy. 


Thanks Buribox for these wonderful gifts for my little girl. And thanks sis Marie for sharing the love. :-)

Do you know what pedal refers in music?



As a non music person, I really do not know what it is until I read an article regarding it in a music magazine. Pedals or effect units are actually devices that change the sound of musical instruments or audio sounds.

Musicians usually use this electronic device during live performances or studio recording to put color or dramatic effects in the sound.  This is often used with electronic or electric instruments such as the electric guitar, electric piano or electronic keyboard, etc. 

So if you see devices mounted on a pedal train, like those above, don’t be surprised to its complexity, they are called pedals for the musicians.
