My nephew was thrilled to see all the goodies in his box! He began building the airplane right away. It seems to be a winner!
Loved the array of books and activities. The perfect blend of interactive books and easy to read books for my 5 and 7 year olds. It was fun to open and explore. Fun and educational!
So disappointed! I bought my 9 year old daughter a 3 month subscription for Christmas. I didn’t open the box beforehand and I sure wish I had! All she got in her box was 4 books, a pencil, and two tiny erasers...I was so excited to get it because it was “curated” for her. The books were good quality though. I contacted the company and never heard back. I’ll update when I get the next box.
I received all 3 months of the subscription and every one was disappointing. Only books, no activities and 2 pencils and 2 tiny erasers in each one. This is NOT advertised as a book Crate but that’s all we got! I also contacted the company twice, once regarding the Crate’s contents and another regarding a late shipment but I never got any replies!
I ordered this box for my granddaughter who is in the first grade. We had done other boxes but they were too advanced for her reading level, mostly chapter books and she became really frustrated. She just received her first Learning Crate and we were so pleasantly surprised. She loved all the books and they were perfectly age appropriate. It helped her self esteem to be able to read them without having to have excessive assistance. I was a little worried that the topics were not going to be as tailored to her as I had hoped, but she seemed to enjoy each book. She was also very impressed with the fun packaging!
Box was filled with books, we love books but I guess I expected more hands on things to do as well. Will try another box to see if there is a difference if not will probably be looking for a more hands on box to get to keep my 9 yr old son busy
Thanks for the feedback, Deanna! We've updated your profile and survey information to include more hands-on activities. Please feel free to reach out to our Support Team with any feedback to make your box more fun and exciting. We're always happy to help!
I was so excited after reading about this subscription. I purchased it for my 9-year old son - to replace his current book subscription with Amazon. This one is significantly more expensive, but I wanted to get him something that came with activities that he and I could do together. Our first box arrived and all it contained were a handful of books and a pencil and eraser - it was so disappointing! I was planning to use this for some mother/son quality time together and it did not deliver all the hype in the description. I signed up for 3 months, hopefully, next month is better. At this point, I can't recommend this subscription...
My daughter was excited about all of the books in her box. They were all unique and ones she has not read. They all appeared to be at her reading level.
We're so glad you are enjoying the Learning Crates Personalized Book Club! Thanks for the great review, Kate.
This was one of the best subscriptions I've ever gotten, Personalized, I said my daughter didn't like math a lot but that we could use more math materials and I got an art math thing which was perfect. We also got a book about a girl who likes math. There wasn't anything I'd ever seen before, which is nice though not necessary. A nice way to get extra school materials.
The curation on this box is TOP NOTCH. My son is always happy and impressed with what he gets. The activity books keep us busy for days and days! Thank you Learning Crates!
This is by far the best subscription box for kids. You can tell that the people putting the boxes together really pay attention to your child's interests. I have no idea how they can make any money on these boxes because the products included are top quality and my son LOVES them. I highly recommend this company and getting this box!
These boxes are absolutely amazing!!! They are filled with fabulous books and activities. They come straight to your child and my daughter looks forward to receiving these every month!! Totally recommended. The price is stupendous for what you receive!!!
Thrilled with this box. I got one for my 2nd grader and one for my 1st grader. When the boxes arrived ( quickly) they were so excited. The items that were chosen for each box were spot on! We will continue getting these. One of my favorite subscription boxes ever and a very fun supplement for homeschooling!
I had some issues with my order and the company was very kind and quick to notice my error and contact me to fix it. Thank you.
This is such a cute idea! My niece loves going to the mailbox each month to get her personalized box of goodies! Each month there are a bunch of items that keep her entertained. The books are great quality and the activities are fun!
We LOVE our box! My 6 year old enjoyed opening up the boxes (it came in 2 boxes) to explore their contents and has read them all from cover to cover already. The books are all age appropriate but one of the items (shape flash cards) is labeled for 3-5 Year olds, which is a little disappointing. One of the boxes was damaged in shipping but the contents were all in perfect shape thankfully. We have been waiting 50 days for our first order to arrive but it was worth the wait. Looking forward to next month’s box.
I started learning crate subscription for my 2nd grader. She was very excited to see what was in the box. She was very happy that there were activity books along with reading books. I like the contents of the box too.
We received 2 chapter books, one of them being Who Was harriet Tubman. There were 2 activity books relating to the universe and the space. One of them has origami action going on. My daughter can cut the page and fold at the dotted lines and make whatever it is supposed to be. Easy to follow directions. One book is about coding and it is reusable as in it is wipe clean kind. There was also a pocket doodling kit which looks very cool and awesome. There was a heart pencil and two cute erasers.
So far the contents of the box greatly exceed my expectations and are of good quality and costly as well. I am happy with the first box. What I like is that there are more than a month’s worth activities and by the time we will finish all of it, the next box will be here.
Great work learnjng crate. Keep it up.
Great content! He is so excited when each box arrives! The quality is amazing!
My daughter received her first box this month and loved it! It was one of her fave subscription boxes. Her favorite items were a Wonder journal( a journal with quotes on some pages from the movie Wonder) and an Amazing Planet scratch away activity book (a science book that you scratched away answers to trivia, etc). The only thing she didn't care for was a book on state birds but the rest was a hit. She can't wait for her 2nd box!
My 10 year old daughter didn't have much interest in reading, but she looks forward to the crate each month and loves the selection!
My son loved his Learning Crate. The books and activities were all personalized for my child. My son is looking forward to his next box.
I am so impressed with our first shipment. All of the books were spot on in term of my son's reading level, interest and creativity. Great selections!
During these unforeseen and truly inconvenient times, it is very important to my husband and me that we ensure our two vastly different children do not fall behind academically during their formative years. I went WAY overboard in subscribing to book and learning crates, figuring I could compare them and decide which ones to renew. No contest, Learning Crates is, by far, the best that I’ve found. Based on a brief survey taken at the time I placed my order, these curators were able to provide PERFECT materials for my kids, almost as if they know them! Not only did we get a couple of picture books, which is what most of the other crates offer, but the crate accommodates TWO children with books on various pertinent subjects, written at an appropriate level, and that my children find engaging. That’s pretty impressive for the first box we have received. No contest. Learning Crates is one subscription we will renew even after things eventually return to some semblance of normalcy. I’m no longer worried about my children falling behind and I can continue to supplement their studies at home once school is back in session.
Thank you, Learning Crates, for taking the time and effort to create boxes for kids as UNIQUE INDIVIDUALS with various strengths, weaknesses, and interests. I can’t wait to see what comes next!

My son loved this!
I am giving this to my 9 year old son for Christmas and I can not wait to see his excitement. He loves to read and there are so many things in this crate that are right up his alley. I am super impressed with our first crate and can’t wait for the next.
We got our 1st box today. Our 10 year old was excited about the book Littler Women in it because we saw Little Women together a few months back. She wants to make a recipe from the book and have a picnic just like the March sisters.
Great variety of topics and presentation. Very interactive. We really enjoyed the lunchbox shaped book with the lift the flaps, gives perspective in a fun way. It included activites like coloring books, 3-d glasses while learning about earth, and a coding book. The heartfelt story about what the dog dreams about was very nice and relatable for my kids, since we have two dogs.
Thanks for the awesome review, Miranda! So great to hear that you enjoyed your first box :)
