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: 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.
Q: I'm interested in this subscription but just one quick question. Are any of the themes throughout the year holiday based? We don't celebrate most holidays.Asked by Jennifer C., July 2020
Hi there, We do not typically do holiday-themed boxes. We did have a heart-themed box in February but that was more about the heart shape than Valentine’s Day.
Q: Do you ship to Alaska?Asked by Lisa F., June 2020
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!
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...
Some things were a little advanced but we purchased for our two year old so we were expecting this. We changed some things up to work for him and he loved it!
Fantastic Company!!! Delivery was fast and on time. The monthly activities are well prepared and thought out. My two year old loves it!
I adore these boxes and they were perfectly themed and very accurate for little minds. my daughter loves them so much and had so much fun doing each activity. Highly recommend for anyone who has a toddler.
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.
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!
Kids love it!!
Just wondering if there is a sibling option?
Love the careful thought that goes into each of these boxes. The reusable activities are created to stimulate learning and include ways to make activities more or less difficult. You could purchase the supplies for the activities for a little less but I’m willing to pay twice that for someone to create the activity, shop for supplies, and ship it to my door. Many activities fit in my purse and can be used on the go. Also great for airplanes or sitting at restaurants. Highly recommend!
Love the little learners box! I purchased for my granddaughter, she is 18 months . Her and her mom look forward to it every month . What I love most , its not just toys they provide learning activities. I will definitely continue my subscription!
