Q: I’m waiting to gift my son in law with a box also while my daughter is pregnant, what do the boxes containAsked by Lisa R., November 2019

The Rad Dad Box answered...November 2019

Hi Lisa, thank you so much for your interest in the box and congratulations to your family! A typical regular box will include a Dad-themed book, a self-care product for Dad, a toy or Dad-themed onesie for the baby (as well as a guide on how Dads can use the toy to help bond with baby and help promote baby's development), and one other product (some months, this product is for Dad, other months, it's for baby). Our Deluxe boxes include everything that comes in the regular boxes, plus 2-3 more products for Dad and baby. We do have photos of our past boxes on our Cratejoy listing, which you can see by clicking through the photo on our main Cratejoy page. Thanks again for...

I loved my box. We had our membership for almost 2 years. We were able to set up our profile and got items that matched what we put down. My boxes had a toy for the baby, a children’s book to read, an activity to do together, and something for me (usually something to eat or a grooming product). We also got near little shirts or onesies. You can change your profile as you go to fit dad’s and baby’s...

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

I did this for each of my sons when there babies were born, they loved it and she works with you to customize it. She was so good helping me with adding something because I didn’t want to leave the 4 year old out. My sons and there wives loved it.

by Ramona P., June 2019

I got a subscription for my husband, and was blown away by the personalized service. In my experience, the people who curate the boxes will reach out to you via email to make sure the choices are age-appropriate, and something you’ll like/use. We loved every box.

by Rachel G., June 2019

Hi Jessie! We give you several options at checkout that allow you to choose which box you feel will be best for your baby. We normally segment the boxes based on age. We will also be offering customized boxes again in July and will reach out to you to discuss the box's contents if you choose this option. Last of all, we also offer a one-time Rad Dad Newborn Starter Kit filled with products that we found essential for the...

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.

I loved this box. I got it for my husband for Father’s Day. The gifts were well planned and he always got a little something for himself. The attention to detail and communication from the woman who does this was great! Would definitely recommend!

I haven't even received the box yet, but I had to come and give a special review to Michelle for her customer service. The communication has been phenomenal. She is totally customizing the first box for us, a gift for my husband. She informed me of a few themes and products she can offer based on my survey answers(do the survey!). It is amazing how hard she has already worked and how much she truly cares. I am already very happy I decided to buy the Rad Dad box and support this business! Thank you for all your work already, I cannot wait to receive the first box and all to follow! Thank you, Pamela G.

The best thing about this gift is the communication between the curators to create the perfect present.
We are muslims and had to make several aberrations and they were patient and quick to reply.
This is the perfect gift for new dads, or repeat dads who need to be reminded what a blessing it is to be a father. It really boosted the excitement in my house.

Awesome! Recieved our last box from our subscription and it is just as great as the first! Big THANK YOU to MICHELLE & Team Rad Dad for keeping dad encouraged, supported, and present with my babies! We enjoyed the tips and information on play, bathing, and all baby related things! We hope to return in the near future but as for the last 6 months, it has been such a treat for our family to share and enjoy together. Thanks for providing something for dads out there!! ♥️

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!

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!
