Q: Hi, I am currently pregnant and due July 2, I saw this and thought it was a prefect gift for my husband for his bday which is in August! Thought it would be a sweet gift to get from the baby to him. How do you know the appropriate box to give when the baby will only be a few weeks old? Is this good for newborns? Asked by Jessie I., June 2019
Q: What age baby is this box for? I have a 9mo. Asked by Holly O., June 2019
Hi Holly! The boxes are appropriate for newborn-3 years old. We usually segment the baby product by age, or find a toy with a long shelf-life that will appeal to this broad age range (typically a stuffed animal or something similar). We do have a few customers with older children and we customize those boxes.
Another RAD box!
The onesie is unique and awesome! My toddler wears it now and in a year so will my baby! :) The soap is great for us and the fingerprint activity is pretty darn cute!! The Bunny theme is great, the book and crinkle bunny with teething ring is perfect for our Lilly when she starts to teeth!
We absolutely love this box and look forward to the next! Keep up the rad job!
TBH, I didn't actually have the box sent yet, but I needed to write about the outstanding customer service. I sent them an email because I wanted to get my brother a box from an earlier month. Michelle from Rad Dad seemed to go out of her way to make my experience an awesome one. They will cut off the top of the card from the box so my brother doesn't know it's from April. Then when I ordered the box with the puzzle, Michelle wrote back because she remembered that my brother's baby is two weeks old, so maybe I would want the crinkle bunny instead. Of course I would! This is really a phenomenal way to be in touch with your customers and keep them engaged. Thank you all so much!
We have loved receiving our Rad Dad Box in the mail now for over a year and a half! My husband and daughter have enjoyed finger painting, playing trucks, blocks, coloring, puzzles, making ornaments--the list goes on and on--all facilitated by items received in their Rad Dad Box. On top of all that, it has been great to receive a special book each month; many of these books have become my daughter's must-read favorites. The just-for-dad things have been fun too--everything from coffee, self-care items, sweet treats, etc.
The 'unboxing' of our monthly Rad Dad Box has become special for both my husband and my daughter. I recommend this subscription box to anyone looking for a sweet, fun, meaningful gift-that-keeps-on-giving for the young dad in their life!
My husband loves getting his Rad Dad Box. He's very engaged with our 5 month old son and sometimes feels left out by the prevalence of advice/gifts/books/support, etc. geared more towards mothers as the assumed "primary" caregiver. He loves reading and playing with Rad Dad Box items with our son--one of the books has become a key component of our bedtime routine! It's great that the book features dads nurturing and caring for their infants. The extra treats (honey, lotions, etc.) are also appreciated during this stressful time. And the way the boxes tie in with seasonal events/holidays is great too. Highly recommend!
My husband and I absolutely love getting his rad dad box every month! It is always something age appropriate for our now 10 month old daughter. My husband has also loved everything that he has gotten in the boxes as well! The toys and outfits are always a big hit in our household! I can’t wait to see what our future boxes hold within them! :)
Love, Love, LOVE this box! So thoughtful and fun each month. The themes are age appropriate and the owner tailors the sizing and the toy age to your kid which makes it a box you can set and forget. My husband enjoys the local small business finds and my little girl is a huge fan of daddy daughter reading time. A win for everyone!
I love The Rad Dad Box. We have gotten boxes for Father's Day for Dad and Granddad. The contents are expertly curated, and mostly from small businesses. Each box is cute, and so fun and useful! Each time, Dad has been so happy to receive fun stuff for himself and also share items with the bitty kiddies in our household! Thank you for everything, Rad Dad Box.
I gifted this subscription to my son for Christmas (first time dad) and it has been so much fun seeing pictures of him and his son enjoying the products together.
The products are well thought out and the themes are always so creative. The company always has been so easy to work with, and will customize any box making it even more special. I am looking forward to starting another subscription for my other son next month when his baby is born!
I really loved watching my husband and daughter open this box together
I ordered the Deluxe RadDad box for my husband since we are getting ready to have our son in less than a week. I figured it would be a cute way to get him really excited about being a dad! We were both excited to open it & see what was inside, but were gravely disappointed. What I liked about the box: a hand-written card with my personal message on it. My husband became very emotional over it. However, everything else in the box was lacking. I was hoping for more "dad-themed" gifts. We received a couple of dad books (though one was about a daughter and dad) and a RadDad mug. The remaining gifts in the box were a package of hot chocolate (which my husband doesn't drink), a snowman rattle (not the season), and a squeaky toy that we ended up giving to the cat. For $45, I could have bought a variety of items and made my own box. I gave this one a try, but in the future, I will not continue or recommend this subscription.
First of all, I am very sorry to hear that you and your husband were disappointed with the box. We know what an important time in your life this is, and we are very sorry that we have fallen short of your expectations. We did e-mail you twice because we wanted to include a Rad Dad t-shirt and a Dad-themed onesie and we needed to know the sizes you needed (plus, we were also sold out of the size you had requested for the onesie and needed your approval for a bigger size). However, since we did not receive a response from you, we did not include these items. Instead, we included as many non-customized Dad-themed items as we had, such as the mug...
