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: Can you make a one time purchase without subscription Asked by Barbara B., December 2020
Yes! There are 3 ways to do that.
1. Purchase a Surprise Box. These are always one-time purchase items with no subscription attached and are comprised of activities from past boxes so the box usually won't have a particular theme.
2. Purchase any subscription and then cancel the subscription immediately or any time before the renewal. Cancelling only keeps it from renewing- you will still get the box or boxes that you paid for. You can cancel by logging into your account or simply emailing and requesting the cancellation.
3. Purchase a subscription and mark it as a gift. If you mark it as a gift, you will have the option to select "do not renew" and this will keep you from having...
Q: Hi there! My daughter is not quite 2 yet, she will be in March. Is she old enough to start with these boxes? Thanks!Asked by Ashley R., November 2020
Good morning!! Thanks for the question! It honestly depends on the child, but most children under 2 are not quite old enough. There are small pieces to count, sort, and manipulate, and they likely won’t be ready yet for many of the preschool concepts. We send the same box out for 2-4 year olds so you can sit with your toddler and work with the materials, but under 2 is still a bit young even with one-on-one supervision.
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!
My friend's daughter loves this box. She's been busy at the crafts and made sure to pack the ones she didn't get to yet for their road trip. She's only 3, so she must be pretty impressed.
Excellent customer service too. The first box got lost in the mail (not the company's fault) so they sent a second box with some extras at no charge before I could even ask for any kind of refund or replacement.
If I had my own kids, I'd definitely subscribe monthly. I'll be keeping it in mind for future gift ideas though.
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!
My kids love the box! Thank you for all you do!♡
Thanks so much! Alexander is enjoying everything
This is for my grandson and he loved this box, my daughter-in-law said it is so nice to have smaller things to do....
My 3 year old loves these activities so much she will do them over and over again. Has been well worth it to keep her busy and give her some "preschool" time.
Have received 2 boxes so far. The packaging is nice and the activities kept my 3 year olds interest. In many cases he would do the activity several times and reused some of the materials for other self-created games. As a busy mom it is super nice to have these pre-packaged ready to go activities!
Update: My child was enjoying the activities so much that I upgraded from the mini box to the big box. Also ordered a ‘surprise box’ where they put together a box with activities from a month prior to when my subscription started (email first to make sure they have activities available that you do not already have).
My 3 1/2 y/o grandson is loving this activity. Though it is mostly review for him, he likes that he can do these on his own. Very high quality. My grandson gets these out at least three times a day. Huge bonus that his first month theme was transportation, as he is train & plane obsessed.
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
My littles are excited to open the box every time it arrives. :)
