5 Boxes That Parents Magazine Chose to "Best Engage Your Child"

Welcome to the Shout Out Scoop.

What IS the Shout Out Scoop, Shan? (Oh yeah, hi I'm Shannon.) Well! The Shout Out Scoop is a series where I’ll call out the boxes that folks from around the web loved. Ya know, we really hate to brag, but the small businesses and independent makers on our site are brilliantly creative. And those makers are so creative, they're featured in major publications on the daily.

So we’re bringing the Shout Out Scoop to the page. It might seem familiar if you follow our Instagram Do you? (Will you? Please? In this economy, with these algorithms, we could use the likes. But only if you really like us.) I digress!

Today, we’re highlighting the boxes chosen by Parents magazine as “The 11 Best Kids Subscription Boxes to Engage Your Child in 2022.”

Reviewer Jeanne M. wrote, “This was my 6 year old great granddaughter’s first crate and she loved it! The owl pellet grossed her out a little at first but then she really got into dissecting it. She & her mother were very surprised at how many really fun projects were packed into a fairly small box. I highly recommend this product.”
