Q: Can you purchase additional boxes? We have the monthly big box subscription but go through them so quickly! Asked by Rachael R., January 2020
We have some “surprise boxes” which are an assortment of busy bags from past boxes. If you contact us directly via email, I can look up your subscription date and put together a box containing activities from boxes before you subscribed so that you don’t get any duplicates. So glad to hear you are enjoying your boxes!
Q: is there bulk pricing packages for 6-10 kids for my daycareAsked by Tara's D., September 2020
Hi Tara, Yes we can work out a bulk pricing option, especially if we can ship in one package. Please email us and we will be happy to discuss your needs further and provide pricing details. Thanks for asking!
Q: Would love to know when you have more of these little learner boxes. We just ordered a couple of your other boxes to check it out for a play group. they look so fun. thanks!!Asked by Sarah-raquel J., August 2020
Hi Sarah! Our boxes are extremely popular, and although we have been heavily increasing the amount we make each month, we have still been selling out. You can begin a subscription for the following month as soon as the current month's boxes ship out on the 5th. So I suggest marking your calendar for the 5th, and subscribing then when our online store is fully restocked with subscriptions. Waiting until later in the month you run the risk of us selling out. We look forward to having you as a subscriber soon!

Q: I would like to start a subscription though it says it’s sold out for both boxes. When will they become available again?Asked by Stephanie M., August 2020
We try our best to anticipate demand each month in order to make enough boxes for our current subscribers plus new subscribers. Often the demand is higher than we plan for. Our boxes ship on the 5th of every month, so once those ship out, our inventory refreshes and more become available. We advise you to get your order in soon after the 5th though, in order to guarantee that you will get in on the next month of boxes.
This box is super cute! I'm not super creative and bad and bringing materials together for a project. This is my first month and I'm so glad it was a doctor theme (she's currently obsessed with doctors and anatomy). Super cute--her favorite was the 'medicine box' activity. Love that we can reuse these multiple times as well!
I love this box! My three year old loves them to. As an Early Childhood Educator and a mum this box is the best. I love the themes and that all the hard work of putting it together is already done, so that we can enjoy playing and learning with it.
Its a great homeschool resource for the early years.
As an educator, I know that preschool activities are much more about how you use them than what the materials are. That said, my initial reaction when I opened our first box (May 2020) was: "my son isn't going to want to do any of these activities, we already have lots of art supplies." Boy, was I wrong! When I showed it to my son, he spent 30 minutes playing with just the first card in one of the five activity bags we were sent. He would have kept playing if I didn't have to interrupt him for dinner. We've gotten a solid 5 hours of play out of this so far (and he's still into it). In this box it's not about the materials, it's 100% about the curation! For example, one of the activity bags had a handful of colored disks that can be stacked to mix colors (red + blue = purple), which I could have gotten at the dollar store. Had I gotten them at the dollar store, my son wouldn't have played with them. The cards are perfect for focusing a pre-schooler on a single activity or challenge to complete with the given materials. Each card takes about 5 minutes to do once, so there's a clear direction/purpose that's achievable within their attention span. Then, after the first time doing a card my little one feels so proud of himself he wants to do it over and over.
For my 3-year old this is a...
I sent this to my 3 year old niece and she just loves getting a special package full of fun activity use!!
Super sweet learner box for my 3 year old! The little bagged activities can be used over & over in rotation. The theme is really sweet, too! I have no time to track down all of the little parts (& I'd be stuck with 50 "extra" pieces -because many only come in large quantities!). These activity bags give me great crafts & play without lots of tracking items down & storing the excess. Love!
Up until this month I would have given five stars but one toy in the box was very inappropriate. We received a pill organizer in the medicine mix up activity. When I contacted the company they said "I am sorry you feel we missed the mark with some of this months activities." Teaching a 2-4 year to play with "medicine" and pill boxes is more than missing the mark, it could be dangerous. Review edited 9-10-20
This box was great! We have gotten a few of them, and they all had activities my 4 year old loved. I am an elementary teacher, and I thought the products and activities included were well-thought and perfectly aimed at the age group. We enjoyed this box!
This was actually exactly the type of thing I was looking for. I liked the quality of the beads, tweezers and tracing cards. I think it will serve as a great collection to bring along in our backpack when we are out and about or on long drives. It was just enough to keep my kid focused and excited without overwhelming him.
I didn't give 5 stars for some categories just because I always like a unique box or mailer itself and this was as simple as it gets in a white box. Also- the dry erase crayon didn't work as well as we hoped but we have dry erase markers to work as well!
This box would be better suited for slightly older children. My child just turned 2, still sticks everything in their mouth. The box is listed as being for 2-4. The box arrived with the standard warning as containing small parts and not being for children under 3. All of the activities contained small parts. We tested only one box though.
Kids love it!!
Just wondering if there is a sibling option?
