I don’t know what Is going on with the business but the past few shipments have been SO LATE. I just received my SEPTEMBER subscription and it is NOVEMBER. They are supposed to ship by the end of the current month if your subscription is paid by the 15th of that month. My OCTOBER subscription hasn’t even been sent out and it’s almost thanksgiving.
I tried contacting the seller and they have not answered ANY of my messages. Cratejoy also contacted them and they didn’t respond either. I have had this subscription for over a year and I am sad that I am now going to be cancelling because of this. If they decide to come back with an explanation I would come back.
So very disappointed.
I was suspicious of even getting this box. I read reviews and I’m like eh... they could be fake, they could only show the ones they want or I am just overly pessimistic about getting ‘subscription boxes’. Well this definitely was worth it.
First off, I am currently living in Japan on a military base. So I had suspicions that this would not ship here but... IT DID. Then I was sure that despite assurances the box would be mailed out in time to reach me in time for Christmas I didn’t think it would because our shipping needs more lead time. The shippers were even worried and sent out a ‘sneak peak’ of the box to help keep the excitement.
Now for the products.
I love that everything is from small businesses and not just mainstream items or ones packaged to appear as a small business. Everything smells wonderful! I really love that each item came in gift wrap so I felt like I opened a box of Christmas (and just for me! I know moms everywhere are like YES!)
I cannot give a good enough review if this box. My daughter absolutely LOVES it! Every item in it goes along with the book! The ‘educational’ items and book questions are fun yet thought provoking. The activities and recipes give us a chance to do something together and facilitate some bonding experiences. She loves it and I absolutely love it too!
I highly suggest choosing this box!
