Very unhappy with this subscription. First, they did not honor their 7 day shipping policy, and 8 days later my box still didn't ship. I e-mailed them, and was assured it would be mailed and said they have been busy..guess my order was meaningless. They sent me a confirmation e-mail that my box had shipped with a bogus tracking number, still showing today; 10 DAYS after when they said they shipped it, from the fedex website that it does not exist. They didn't even mail what I paid for. I would like a refund for the product that seemingly wasn't even sent.
Got this subscription for my 6 year old granddaughter who loves to read and so far not happy. The first month I had to write to find out where the books were. Was told there was an cross over and the problem was fixed and won't happen again. Then the next month came on time and enjoyed the selection. The 3rd month was a duplicate of the 2nd month. Contacted the company again and they said "Oh it was glitch in the system another box will be sent out" got them late but good books but the same activity/coloring book. So now we are here today and opened the box and it is the same as the first box I got last month. I have written the company again, to fix this problem but have not heard back from them as of yet. So now I have 3 copies each of sprout street neighbors, here's hank, the adventures of jo schmo and nickelodeon jumbo activity/coloring book. Currently looking for a new book club I will not recommend them to anyone. I would love to give them half of a star for that month they kind of got it right, but it made me do the minimum which is a full star.
Got charged for 4 and received 2 so even though he loved it I had to cancel it.
I assumed My First Reading Club would have your typical early child reading books. "The Cat in the Hat", "Goodnight Moon", etc. Boy was I wrong. All the books are marketing items for Disney, Nickelodeon, and probably, who knows maybe McDonald's, if I didn't cancel my shipment. Unless you love the idea of corporate marketers pedaling products to your children, go elsewhere.
We bought a 6 month subscription. We just received box 5 out of 6. 2 out of 5 have been duplicate boxes from previous months. The first time they resent to replace. This time I haven't heard back since I emailed today. You get 3 books and an activity book so it's a good price. One time I got a game manual for a game we don't even own. I guess they sent it because it had stickers in it? My daughter loves getting the books every month, but with how much I have to contact them over getting replacements for a duplicate box or the tracking number not working IDK if I want to renew and continue
I bought this for my nephew thinking it would be an amazing gift to open every month. At first it was, although we specially ordered the box to arrive for his birthday (which it didn't) he loved what was inside. Over the next two months the packages came at the end of the month, considering he was receiving Halloween books the day before Halloween.... November came and once again the package arrived at the end of the month. December we received NOTHING. Then come January 3rd we receive a parcel request to pick up a package from the post office, when we get there we were told we needed to pay a $40.00 charge as the box had been marked with a total cost of $600.00! This was INSANE. we sent the package back. This is a great idea if you get what you paid for on time. Who wants Christmas books in January??? Trying to get some help is also disappointing, saying that information will be passed off to managers and then hearing nothing back doesn't really solve anything. We are very disappointed in this box and will NOT be continuing the membership when it expires.
