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...
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!
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.
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!
This is a great box! I’ve received three so far, and have enjoyed them all. I love the storage boxes they come in; perfect for keeping the activities together. Each activity comes in its own little bag in the box and there is sheet with each activity that lists suggestions on how to use it with your child. So far, there has only been one activity that I can see possibly not having much of a “shelf life”. I’m impressed by how truly re-usable everything is. Some subs only offer one time activities for kids, so I really appreciate that I can pull this off the shelf at any time to use again. This sub is perfect for parents who want to engage their child with creative learning activities but aren’t the crafty type. It’s an added plus that I only have just what I need for each activity. I don’t have to deal with all the extra materials that I would be left with had I gone to the store to get it myself. I really recommend this box!
My little guy loves the boxes. They are pretty easy to follow and interactive. Highly recommend!
my 3 year old loves these boxes and i enjoy practising skills with her through the activities. it is worth the price
No more than a cheap storage container with card stock directions and some dollar tree type junk in souffle cups. Way over priced and not engaging.
