Now that I have a Kindergartener next year he will be going into the first grade so when Mom Central told me about this blog tour of course I wanted to be a part of this.
Let me give you some information from the Kindercone website www.kindercone.com:
KinderCone LLC , is based on a German tradition dating back to the early 19th century. Oftentimes, the first day of school can be a bittersweet moment in a child’s life, but in Germany and Austria it is marked by a day of celebration and appreciation. On that day, families present their first grader with their very own Schultüte. Inside, the child finds little gifts, treats, and school supplies. KinderCone wants to inspire every family and their young children to enjoy learning by celebrating this special event in their lives.
After learning about what this tradition was all about I got so excited! The cone came to the house and wow my son thought it was a Giant Ice cream cone! I am going to give the cone to him on his graduation day from kindergarten which is coming up soon. I did however get a peek inside the cone and it was filled with 5pencils ready to use, a cute little cat named Karli who can be clipped to a backpack or you can sit him anywhere you like such as a desktop and he has a little bag that you can place a little something in for your kiddo to enjoy , plus a journal called "Me, Myself and First Grade", some temporary tattoos and a limited edition certificate :). I think what I like about this kindercone is that my son will love the little goodies inside of it and when he is done filling in the journal I will use the cone to store his keepsakes like his great drawings and the completed journal so when he has his own kids he can share the tradition as I did with him and his baby sisters
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.
