Q: We subscribed about 2 years ago -- would like to do it again -- are the crafts new or would we risk a repeat from the last time?Asked by Jennifer L., December 2022
We do repeat kits, but have roughly 2 dozen unique ones. Since you only subscribed for 6 months, we've still got plenty of projects to send. The trick is that we need to reactivate the old subscription, rather than starting a whole new one. This keeps the history in tact for what you've already received in order to avoid duplicates. Please contact our customer support and let us know the subscription length you want so we can get this started for you.
Q: Please tell me you make or know of something like this for 5 to 8 year olds 😭Asked by Cameron P., January 2022
Sorry, we don’t offer any subscriptions for this age group. Maybe Green Kids Crafts?
Q: I’ve been trying to find out when my November box will ship since it hasn’t yet and can’t get a response to any of my emailsAsked by Shawndell B., December 2020
I sent you an email regarding your specific order. Due to the flood of holiday related requests and questions plus increased product demand, our customer service email response time is a bit slower than usual. We are getting to each person as quickly as possible! Thank you for your patience while we get through this crazy busy time of year. There are also some FAQ's on the Terra Create website that may answer common customer service questions.
Q: Please ship to Canada 🥺Asked by Shadi D., December 2020
We would love to be able to supply our Canadian friends with craft kits. However, the shipping costs are enormous and our research has shown that the majority of potential customers would not be willing to pay $18 to $30 per month for shipping. As a small, but growing company, we're not yet in a tier where we could qualify for bulk rates to Canada. Perhaps someday we'll get there! Thanks for your interest in Terra Create.
Waited for over a month. The package never arrived. It was purchased as a Christmas gift. Canceled the order due to it not arriving in time for the holiday
We have responded directly to this customer and refunded their order. This order was cancelled immediately by the customer on same day it was placed. Which confused us, so we contacted them twice to clarify. Usually this quick of a cancellation means the customer changed their mind and does not want it at all. Turns out this customer really did want it. We never received any response and had no other way to contact them. So the order has been on hold. We figured they'd reach out eventually to ask where's my package or where's my refund and then we'd know which action to take. Customer service is a top priority but it's true we don't have phone support as it's not feasible for...
Lots of fun for a date night in. We enjoyed it.
It was shipped all over the place..took a month to get. Also..came broken. The kids are excited for the pets that aren’t broken, but a lot of money to be broken.
We received our first box this month. We had enough materials to make 4 windchimes - not just 2! Beautiful craft - great quality items. My daughter and I had so much fun with this one and are looking forward to many more!
This will be a gift for my 10 year old for Christmas so she hasn’t done the craft yet, but when I opened the box to check it all out I was blown away by the amazing smell! She received the hot cocoa candle making set and I know she is going to love this!!
I was very impressed by the speedy shipping and how well packed the box was. I’m really looking forward to doing this with my daughter!!
The box I got is a gift for someone else, but I had it mailed to me. The box had gotten wet in transport, but luckily the box and the instruction pamphlet were all that were affected. Customer service said they would mail out a new pamphlet.
From my brief look, the product was packed very nicely and they looked to be a good quality. I was a little surprised at how small the box was - I expected there to be more crafts/box.
My two girls 12 and 14 love this box and so do I. The activities are perfect for their age. Much more advanced than kids craft kits. Also each idea is so unique that many of the crafts are brand new to these seasoned crafters. As a mom I love how I can get a single subscription which included enough supplies for two people. I can't say enough how wonderful Terra Create is. Supplies are generous and unique. Directions are detailed and readable with lots of pictures. Favorites have included the October Halloween zen sandbox and the scented candles. This would be enjoyed by adults as well as teens.
Bought this for my daughter and i to do. Chose the for two people... we got enough stuff for four people to make. Everything was very well put together and we had a lot of fun. we are excited for the next box and wish we could order some of your past boxes while we wait !
My 9 year old loves these. The projects are unique and good quality, the instructions are easy to follow, and the owner is very responsive. Better than other crates we've tried.
