“The price is very reasonable and the proceeds from the Reindeer Poo in a Box gift help to support important research into biodiversity, making this a great gift.”

Buy online at the Natural History Museum



Reindeer poo in a box
Initial thoughts: Reindeers are synonymous with Christmas and what better way to join in the festivities than growing your own Christmas Tree (Pinus abies)?  The bio-degradable box contains reindeer poo, Christmas tree seeds and full instructions for use.

We Liked:  Obviously with four little girls in the house we love anything Christmas related so combine that with getting dirty in the soil and we were definitely onto a winner with the reindeer poo.  The girls fought over who got to sow the seeds and couldn’t wait to watch their Christmas tree grow.  This was a real family effort and was a nice ritual we would like to include every Christmas ensuring lots of family fun and bonding time.

We weren’t so keen on:  The box is very small and the tree is realistically going to take a long long time to establish itself and children are not the most patient of creatures.  My four year old’s face fell when I broke the news that the tree would not grow in the space of 5 weeks, in time to decorate it for Christmas.

Overall:  I can imagine this Reindeer Poo in a box being a real fun novelty Christmas gift for kids and adults alike.  The price is reasonable and the profits made from it’s sale help to Support the Natural History Museum and it’s fantastic research into conserving the biodiversity of our planet.
