Customer Questions (11)


Q: Isn't it dishonest to tell people a 3 month subscription is $27 a month and then at the end you tack on another $30 for shipping? Shouldn't that be told upfront?Asked by Sam I., July 2021

Little Budding Artist Co. answered...July 2021

The Cratejoy Marketplace has a preset template for sellers to use. I can see how the shipping and checkout process can be confusing to customers.
Here is what my listing states:
Shipping cost - $10 per individual box.
First box ships within 1-3 days.
Monthly boxes ship out on the 15th of each month.

Q: How long is the shelf life of a clay box? I’m thinking of stocking them up to use when the grandkids come. Asked by Jean S., April 2021

Little Budding Artist Co. answered...April 2021

Clay boxes contain a variety of clay bodies. Air dry clays usually remain moist up to 6 months in an airtight package. (Water can be added to soften dry clay if needed.) Oil based clays do not dry out. Kits that contain paint remain moist for approximately 3 months. *Shelf life recommended 3-6 months. Mrs. Post - Art Teacher


Q: If I ordered a box right now which clay box would I recieve?Asked by Jean S., April 2021

Little Budding Artist Co. answered...April 2021

The 2021 April box is: Handsome Horses & Unique Unicorns. This is the current box that is shipping out now. If you have your eye on a past box, I do have a few available for shipment. Mrs. Post - Art Teacher


Q: Hello!!! Your lessons look awesome. I would like to order the polar bear lesson for my granddaughter to try. Can I order that one box for now? Teacher Sue in AlaskaAsked by Susan P., February 2021

Little Budding Artist Co. answered...February 2021

Well thank you Sue! I work hard designing my art lessons to be both educational and fun for my students. I'm sure you can relate being a teacher yourself. The "Polar Bear Pals" box will be shipping out on the 15th of this month. It is our February's box. I am packing the boxes now and would be glad to ship one to your granddaughter. I would love to hear back how she liked it considering she lives in Alaska. What a perfect first box for her to try. Mrs. Post - Art Teacher

Thank you for the response. I will order it online today. My granddaughter’s address will actually be in Idaho. My daughter and family had to move away last year for better medical care for breast cancer that didn’t show on any mammogram. (It was -42 degrees the day up here my granddaughter was born! Seven inches of ice reaching into the hospital room on the window sill.) Due to the pandemic, of course, we haven’t...

We just received our first box and my daughter is so thrilled! She took a sculpture class in 7th grade this year and was always talking about how much she loved it, so I saw this as a way to keep her passion going. The box is larger than I thought, with lots of supplies, instructions, and a nice note from her art teacher. She even has a little pouch to keep her supplies in. I can already tell this box is a home run and one she will be looking forward to each month!

We love Mrs. Post and her little budding artist clay boxes! My mom gifted them about a year ago to my kindergartener. Siena is always so excited when her monthly boxes arrive. Sometimes we follow the awesome and clear paper directions, and sometimes we watch Mrs. Post's class recording for the project on YouTube (pausing while we make our way through the steps). These are so fun and creative.
As a bonus, Mrs. Post has offered several live art classes that we've joined and had so much fun working with a small group of kids on a project together. Mrs. Post's energy and teaching style is really lovely! She gives so much personal attention to the kids and you can tell really loves teaching art. Highly, highly recommend!

Thank you so much! I love having Siena as my art student. It amazes me how well she does on her clay sculptures during our Zoom classes. Usually, I need to lend a helping hand with my kindergarteners, but since that isn't possible she just pushes through on her own. Every artist needs some grit and she definitely has it.

This box is absolutely adorable. My daughter received 3 projects in her first monthly box. There was a very description video along with it to explain the directions. My 7 year old did so well.

This is wonderful! All the tools you need to create a beautiful little clay creation. We got the cactus box first and it is awesome! My 12 yo loves it and finds the process soothing and peaceful. A younger kid might need help but school age kids can do everything in it.

Little Budding Artist Co. said...Jun 08, 2020

I agree, art making is a peaceful and calm activity. So good for one's mental health.

Amazing fun!

I purchased this subscription for my 6 year old niece’s birthday and she absolutely loved it. The whole family joined in and they were thrilled with Mrs Post’s art lessons. The clay was super fun and has sparked a new interest for my niece’s creativity. She wants to work with more clay in her future. Thank you for this amazing box!

Bought for Grandaughter at Christmas. She loves it. The curring time is long for kids but patience isn’t the easiest thing. Otherwise all is great.

Little Budding Artist Co. said...Jan 25, 2021

I'm so happy your granddaughter loves her Christmas gift! She will be getting a variety of different clay bodies to try out over the months. They all work a little different and have different drying times. (The "curation" mark in this review is referring to how I curated or put together the content in the box based on my expertise as an art educator. Which I hope you found satisfactory.)

The gift that keeps on giving!

I Purchased the Clay Box for my Grandkids as a Christmas Gift. They Love it! And the parents love it too. It's a project that they can all do together once a month. The instructions are easy to follow and so much fun for the kids, ages 4 through 8. The gift that keeps giving all year long. :)

Best Grandma gift ever

We had a BLAST with our first Clay Box! The box came with all the materials needed and clear directions that my 5year old could follow along! Being a working mom I loved having a creative activity arrive that we could open and enjoy together! I love that we had a sculpting session then a painting session the next day - Just Wonderful! THANK YOU!
