This is the second month I received this box. I love the box but really wish it came with colored pencils and a sharpener each month. This is a great box for people stuck at home. I think a sharpener is also necessary to make the box feel more complete.
My first box felt so worth it. The box I received this month just felt like something was missing and I think it is the colored pencils. Many people are at home and can not leave their houses. It would be wonderful if each month a person could receive a complete box. A sharpener would just be a wonderful touch.
I was happy with everything in the box except for the John Wayne puzzle book. I’ve heard of him but I’m not an avid fan so the book won’t be very entertaining for me, other than that I love this box 🙂
Love the book, puzzle book is ok and the coloring book is good
This box contained more than I expected. Can't wait to see what's inside for the next one.
My first box was impressive! I received a book that I had on my TBR list--so excited to read it! The Sibley Bird coloring book isn't really my thing, but the illustrations are gorgeous. I looking forward to playing with the Dot-to-Dot book. I was hoping to get the colored pencils, but it must have been added after I purchased the subscription. I'm really impressed with the quality and types of products, and am eagerly awaiting my next box, but it has been preparing for shipment for almost the entire month. I hope it wasn't overlooked. All in all, I'm very pleased and will most likely resub Thanks so very much!
A mistake was resolved within MINUTES (AND on a Saturday night). You can tell the company owners care about their customers and take great pride in their products.
I needed to update my review.
When I submitted this back in June, it was after I received two of the same package (thinking it was for two different months) and instead learned there was a duplicate subscription box mailed accidentally. You allowed me to keep it rather than return it, and I said I would keep them in my classroom in case I had a day when my students needed to relieve some anxiety.
Over this past weekend, my district suffered a tragic loss as one of our seniors passed away in a car accident. His classmates were unable to do anything in class today - they didn't talk, move; they cried quietly and stared into space.
I pulled apart the books (that did bother me - they are bound so beautifully) and handed out crayons. Being able to have some regression therapy was exactly what was needed for some of them. They began talking, sharing their art work with their friends (and hanging it on my walls!), and even smiling a little.
Thank you for allowing me to keep them. I believe things happen for a reason. I know now why I received that second box last June.
Thank you again.
The cratejoy site lists the subscription as $14 then when you bo to pay it changes to 16.99. Y'all might want to fix that. I got my 1st month and received a WW2 book , a coloring book for mothers and a level 4 word search book. This was curated for who? An 80 year old mother? I am not a mother, i wanted classic books not a recent WW2 story and well i guess the word search is ok. I don't even have a mother to give the coloring book to. The company had no way of knowing this info so I give them that. Still, most females don't read WW2 books and a colouring book devoted to mothers is a risky specific item. Basically this felt like they just grabbed random items off a clearance rack. I didn't keep anything so $20 w shipping is too much for things i could get in the clearance bin.
I would think the romance, fantasy genres would please more people. I prefer classics and it ends up by classics they mean a book written 4 years ago that didn't sell. I wil cancel but if i liked romance or fantasy this would be an excellent deal.
The coloring book and activity book are beautiful and I love them. The book was a little disappointing- the third in a trilogy? I'll give it a try anyway.
Oh no! Apologies, we sent the wrong book! I'll have a new book shipped out to you tomorrow. Thank you for being a subscriber and for being so good natured!
I had posted a review in which there was a misunderstanding - apparently there was a shipping mix up. But the quality of the books was wonderful and I enjoyed the dot to dot book and bird journal.
I am not happy with the first book that came at all. It’s not my kind of book that I would read. Very dry and boring.
Update: Was contacted by C&C and told next box will be corrected. I appreciate the response.
Received my first box today (ordered to get novels for me, coloring for my wife, and the rest to share).
It was a pretty cool box. My wife loves the coloring book and pencils, the activity book is pretty interesting, and the handwritten note (and lollipop!) were a great touch.
My only complaint (and the reduction of stars) was that I selected non-fiction as my genre and received a fiction book. I may try to give it a read, but I'm really a non-fiction fan.
Overall, though, a nice service. We bought 3 months so we're looking forward to the next two!
