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’d love to send all of the boxes! I have 6 grandchildren so I just can’t order i’m1 for every child. I thought I could rotate them and then nobody feels left out. Unless there’s a way to specifyAsked by Stacy M., February 2021
Hi Stacy, Unfortunately there is no way to specify a box. All of our subscribers receive the same box on any given month. The theme and activities change every month, but we don’t offer the option of picking a specific theme since we typically only make enough for our subscribers and sell out. Please let us know if you have further questions.
Q: If I wanted to send a different box each month, should I just pay by the month instead of doing the prepaid 6th month subscription. Unless you’re allowing me to pick didfAsked by Stacy M., February 2021
Hi Stacy, The theme of our boxes changes every month. No matter when you sign up or for how long, we only ship one theme to every subscriber every month. We don’t duplicate the themes- they are unique each month! I hope that helps answer your question. Thanks for reaching out!
Q: I am considering purchasing this for a group of children. It says reusable activities. Would this work to use in a small group with each child using 1 activity then switching?Asked by Amanda E., February 2021
Hi Amanda! Yes you could certainly use the activities that way! Each activity is contained in its own busy bag- the mini box has 3 and the big box contains 5 busy bags. Some activities may take longer to complete than others, but they can be reused and done again and again until it’s time to switch!
As a full time working mom with a toddler at home and no day care due to COVID, I wanted to make sure my little one can still learn through educational activities. So glad I came across this subscription!
They sell out quickly, I had to wait until the 5th to order. But I received the teeth kit for the first month and my toddler loved it so much, kept her busy for an hour!
Also when the cousin came by, who is 5 year old, they played together with these sets. So cute!!
I loved them so much I reached out quickly to the owner to get past kits!!
i’ve only had one box so far and haven’t used all that’s inside yet. first thought was i felt like the projects were a little old for my 3.5 year old BUT i can appreciate that exposure to these ideas/tasks etc are really the key to to learning and experiencing new things. we do the activity (which doesn’t last too long for him)and then he ends up using the materials in a free play way using his imagination. at the end of the day i just really need things curated for me (and him) and this checks that box!
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 granddaughter loves the busy box and so do her parents! Great learning activities that are ready to go!
We absolutely are in LOVE with these boxes! I recommend it to all of the moms I know with toddlers. My daughter is so excited when a new one comes and spends the next week carrying it from room to room. When we get a new box, we go through each activity one time together so she knows how to use it. After that, she is able to work with them on her own. As a homeschooler, it has been a great way to keep her busy while I work with the older kids. I like the creative themes each month. This month's Dental Health has been a huge hit here!
For reference: My daughter will be 4 in a couple of weeks. This month was our third box. Age-wise, I think it can work for a 2-yr old with a lot of assistance, but is probably best for ages 3-4. (Though her older siblings fight for the chance to try every box as soon as she has tried everything.) I would expect that the activities would be below her skill level sometime between 4-4.5 years, but that doesn't mean they won't still be fun at that age.
A thoughtful and well put together box. My daughter has loved every single activity inside and gets excited when she sees a new one in the mail! 5 stars - very satisfied.
I ordered this for my niece and she absolutely loved everything in the box and played with everyday!
Great subscription for a 2-3 year old!
