This was my first box from Cratejoy and I was a little nervous about not being able to see what I was getting ahead of time, but I absolutely loved it. The surprise element is fun and I loved the choices. Can't wait to read the books!
Edit: This was previously a 5 star review because the first box was phenomenal. Seriously. After seeing what was in it, I bought two more as Christmas gifts. After that, it was hit or miss. Another month's box was really great and definitely worth the cost, unfortunately, most of the time, I was disappointed. Partially through no fault of the seller - sometimes I wasn't wild about the choice in books or some other aspect that they couldn't have known - but it was partially problems with items (damaged, leaking, etc.), or receiving things I asked not to get (and was told I wouldn't), or having to ask where my box was.
Overall, it could be really nice if those problems are addressed. I think it might help to have an option to personalize a bit more so you don't get items or books you'll never use. Unfortunately, I just don't feel like it's worth the price as is.
These boxes are so much fun. I love the book choices and the items are so well coordinated.
This is such a fun box to get. Everything is unique, useful, and a nice quality, and I love that it has a real impact in fighting poverty.
Nice box with a variety of good book choices.
I don't have kids. I got this for myself and I loved it. So well put together and creative.
I got this for my friend's girls to share. They absolutely loved it.
This is such a fun box. I received my third box today and I loved the choices for the third time. And I absolutely love that it supports charity.
Received my second box today and so far, I've been very happy with the books chosen.
It's always fun to get these kind of boxes, so I gave this one a try. The book looks interesting and the candle, room spray, and lip balm smell great, but honestly I probably won't get much use from most of the things in the box, so it's not really worth the price. But that's just me. I'm sure someone else would love it.
I'd probably have given it another month, but I didn't really care for the theme for the next box. But I do appreciate being able to see what the theme is to make the decision. So while I did cancel, I would consider giving it another try in the future.
My only real complaint that's not a preference issue is that the bookmark is supposed to be double sided, and it's not. I do like the quote and design, but I feel like I got gipped on that a bit
This is a fun 'box' that isn't too expensive. As I only received it today, I haven't read the book yet, but it looks good and has good reviews, and the bookmarks are nice. I'm not really a button person, but those who are will love them. I'm not interested in the next book so I canceled for now, but I'd definitely consider resubscribing in the future.
My friend's daughter loves this box. She's been busy at the crafts and made sure to pack the ones she didn't get to yet for their road trip. She's only 3, so she must be pretty impressed.
Excellent customer service too. The first box got lost in the mail (not the company's fault) so they sent a second box with some extras at no charge before I could even ask for any kind of refund or replacement.
If I had my own kids, I'd definitely subscribe monthly. I'll be keeping it in mind for future gift ideas though.
I got this as a gift for my cousin and she loved it. I'm sort of wishing I'd ordered a box for myself.
I ordered this for my cousin's daughter for Christmas. I wasn't sure what to send her, but this turned out to be the perfect gift.
