Princess & Frog Money Box by Freya Design

Freya Design are a lovely website that sell gorgeous wooden boxes for all manner of purpose including an array of cute little money boxes, keepsake boxes, sewing boxes and more! Each one is beautifully made using high quality materials and non-toxic paints.

"Nordic simplicity and the vibrant colours blending in with the natural materials used is very much the trade mark of Freya Design. Wood, textile and other natural materials are used to achieve the unusual 3D designs that are the trademark of Freya Design. The materials are carefully sourced from around the world and the environment is always the main consideration when making decisions.

All products are painted with non-toxic paints and we have decided to leave the inside of the boxes unpainted in order to retain the natural smell of wood"

Freya Design sent Lexi a beautiful Princess & Frog Money Box to review and here is what we thought....

They say a picture paints a thousand words and so you can see that Lexi was instantly attracted to the money box. The princess has a lovely dress on with a big smile on her face and a shiny gold crown and twisted fabric hair which Lexi loved twisting in her fingers. Even with Lexi's best attempt, the hair is attached so well that there is no way she was able to pull it off or yank it hard enough to break it.

The decoration on the box is done to a very high standard and looks amazing. The detailing is perfect with glitter used on the flowers and shiny gold paint on the crown with a luscious bright red heart above the Frog's head.

Above the coin slot in the top of the box is the wording "Make A Wish" which I think is really cute and fitting for our own little princesses who will love this money box!

The opening at the back of the box is ingenious as it has just a hole but is cleverly concealed with a little piece of wood on a pin so you can turn it around to show the hole and then turn it back to conceal it. Lexi had lots of fun putting the money into the box then turning the flap to get the money back out. A very clever and well thought out design by Freya Design.

The box is well made and of such high quality and workmanship that I think the price of £24 is fair as it must have taken a lot of time, effort and love to make such a beautiful box! You can buy your own Princess & Frog Money Box or any others from the range including pink fairy, train, car or boat from the Freya Design website and can personalise with your little one's name free of charge which I think is a great idea! A really special present for any child.

Why not pop over to the Freya Design website or the Freya Design Facebook page to have a browse at their gorgeous products. I would love them all myself never mind for Lexi!

As you can tell, even though it has a higher price than other money boxes available to buy, I would definitely recommend this money box if you want a beautiful forever keepsake which can be personalised for your child and will grow with them for many, many years to come. It looks fantastic in Lexi's bedroom on her shelf and we have had many people comment on how lovely it is.

Thank you Freya Design; the fun design, ease of use and sheer beauty of this box was very much Loved By Lexi!
