You can go to a local bookstore and craft store to curate something better and higher quality. And don't think about cancelling because you'll only get half your money back.
I believe we spoke via email. When you purchased your subscription, you used a coupon code that allowed you to get the price of one package removed from your total, so your subscription was discounted when you purchased. Once again, if you would like to ship the package you received back to us, we are happy to provide a refund for the price of the package, the instructions for that process is detailed in the email. We understand that not every subscription is perfect for every person. Our subscription focuses on the books and reading, and it seems as if you may want one that places their focus on crafts and toys. Although that is not our specialty, there are many subscriptions out there...
totally inappropriate and poor selections for a 4 year old (advanced reader). These books appear to be overstock of books that aren't selling elsewhere.
It is unfortunate that we are just hearing about this. We always want to make sure that each subscription is perfect for each little reader and when customers reach out we are able to individually curate to help find the perfect reading level for each kiddo. Communication is key for us so please feel free to reach out and email us. If you're kiddo needs different books we are happy to replace the ones you received if you would like to ship back those books, then we can ship out ones that are better for your specific reader. Please reach out to us via email and we are happy to get everything sorted out.
DO NOT SUBSCRIBE!! You receive little or no information not able to track packages. No ability to talk to someone and have to wait days/weeks on replies to emails. They say they are processing month 3 of my subscription but I have yet to see one package delivered. I have already cancelled and waiting on refund not sure how long that will take.
I just checked your account and it looks like you cancelled your subscription on March 19th. In the cancellation email we let you know that if you would like to cancel the remaining packages to email us and let us know before the shipping dates April 1-4th. On April 4th after receiving the shipping notification, with the tracking information, we received an email from you that said, "Subscription cancelled do not ship packages." We then replied to the email asking your preference for the remainder of the subscription since one package had already been shipped and we did not receive any further communication from you, so we continued to send the packages to the address provided. We would be happy to help sort...
I’ve had nothing but issues with Owlpost.
- damaged books
- incorrect shipments
- unresponsive customer service
If you are looking for book club that communicates well and has good customer service, Owl Post Books is not for you. Their book selection omits children who read at the 12-13 year level, but they do not disclose this gap in any of their info. They simply do not provide books for the age group, skipping from the 8-11 age level to 14-17 age level. Our grand daughter reads at 8-11, but found a few books too simple, so I requested an increase to the next level. After receiving two books for young adults, my 9 year old grand daughter sheepishly informed me the new books were too difficult.
After pressing Owl Post Books for a resolution, they disclosed their line of books jumps from appropriate for age 8-11 to age 14-17, what they refer to as young adult. If I wanted the two young adult books replaced, the old books first had to be returned at my expense, even though the problem arose from their lack of disclosure and poor communication and oversight; they know the subscription is for a nine year old. Owl Post Books has very poor customer relations.
We apologize you feel like our customer service is lacking. When you purchased your subscription for your granddaughter, we received your feedback after the first shipment asking our customer service to move your subscription up to a higher level because the 8-11 subscription was not a right fit. Currently, we offer four subscription age options 0-3, 4-7, 8-11 and YA. After receiving your email to move your subscription up, we immediately adjusted your subscription to the next age range we offer, within 24 hours. We shipped out the subscription for two months and on January 16th at 2:14pm you emailed saying the YA subscription was too elevated and informed us your granddaughter was 9, then asked us how to proceed in getting the...
I have contacted the Seller 3 times. It is the 19th of August and the gift box for this month has not been mailed yet. I've tried to find out what the delay is but the Seller has not contacted me.
I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. If you could please check your spam box for email replies. We emailed you back on August 19th and August 15th to answer your question about your grand daughter's package. Your package was shipped on August 1st with all of our subscriptions, your shipping and tracking information are from our shipping company, Pirateship. I have resent the tracking email for you. It looks like your package was delivered to a parcel locker at the local post office and was returned because it was not picked up. I would be happy to resend your package out tomorrow. Have a great day and thank you for choosing Owl Post Books!
Terrible, did not receive what I paid for!!!!
We would be happy to chat with you about your Imagination Box subscription. The subscription includes three new books, a craft/toy and an interactive box as described above. I just checked the shipping on all four of your packages and they were all successfully delivered to your recipient. As far as we are aware, we have provided exactly what you have purchased for your subscription, but we happy to help resolve any concern you may have, feel free to email us to further assist you.
I am disappointed with this book. I find it very sexist and am shocked you selected this book. The girl has a doll and wants to be a queen and a ballet instructor. The boy likes dinosaurs and race cars..really could you be more sexist?
Also I find the books to be written for a child about 3-5. My grandson is 2 and does not find the books I’ve received interesting. I am aware that learning includes new concepts but the books so far have been way over his head.
We appreciate your feedback and I would be happy to enlighten you on the reason why we selected this particular book. I have been a musical theatre teacher for ages 5-18 for the past six years, so creating an inclusive environment for all of my kiddos has helped them open up and grow through the art of singing, dancing and acting regardless of their age, gender, or background. This being a huge part of my classroom, it has now carried over to my business and selecting books that are inclusive is a very important part of our process. Our goal is to select books for every child and Cis-gender children are still a part of the beautiful rainbow that is made up of all...
It is not a box it came in a postal envelope. If I wanted that I would have nought three books and mailed usps
So disappointing as Christmas gifts for me nieces. I expected a box with 3 books each and the activity and toy as described. This is not the case!!!
I would be happy to help you out. I just checked your account and the subscription you signed up for is our Book of the Month Club (1 Book a Month), described above as, “Join our new Book of the Month Club! You will receive one brand new children's book in a colorful mailer every month! Make sure to fill out the subscription quiz so we can send a book that your reader will love!” The Imagination Box Subscription comes with 3 books, a toy and in interactive box each month. If you would like, I would be happy to help you switch over to an Imagination Box Subscription at $30/month. Have a wonderful holiday and thank you for choosing Owl Post Books!
Just received our first box. It contained: three books about DEATH (Merry Christmas, everyone), two cheap, lame, Christmas ornament "crafts" (requiring no crafting, only slipping one piece of paper into another), and SHREDDED CONSTRUCTION PAPER that is now all over my office floor. Disappointed is an understatement. I just hope I can find another book of the month club that will ship before Christmas. Seriously, don't waste your time with this one.
We do apologize you were not please with the book selections in your Imagination Box. I would be happy to explain the book selections for this month!
The Last Immortal is a fun new take on classic characters like Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, that come together to form a crime fighting group called the Immortals. It introduces classic characters to kids in a fun new way.
Downside Up is about Fred who finds himself chasing a tennis ball into a grate and ends up in another world that is almost just like his. This book is very reminiscent of Coraline and has some twists and turns that Fred does not expect.
Fates is a books that takes a new spin Greek mythology's fates. The main character fell from...
