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.

There are not enough words to express how happy I am with my decision to subscribe to the Rad Dad Box! I believe it is unlike any other of its kind and is worth every penny.

I believe you can tell a lot about a company by the people that run it. When I reached out with questions about the box, I promptly heard back from one of the owners, Michelle and we engaged in a delightful correspondence, during which she answered all my questions thoroughly. She is still in touch to make sure that I am happy with the products and to discuss any possible customizations for an upcoming box. I love being able to have a say in what my husband will be receiving and he still gets to enjoy the aspect of surprise! Yes- my very picky husband LOVES this box!

It is obvious there is a lot of time, energy and care put into these boxes, which makes it an even more worthwhile investment. The themes are very clever, as well. The products that come with the boxes are great quality, original and fun. The company is mindful of what your preferences may be and you are asked what you would/would not prefer in a survey as well as how old your children are, which even further adds a personalization aspect. I have twins and have been offered to make substitutions to make the box more "twin-friendly".

Whether you want each month to be a surprise, or...

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!

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!! ♥️

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! :)

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!

The Rad Dad box was so much fun! I got it for my husband as a gift when our second was born. We subscribed for a year. They regularly asked us how it was going, have us options, and gave us personalized emails and notes. Such a fun box! It's neat to see the curator family pictures, too! Thanks for Rad year!!

I was so pleased with my purchase right from the beginning. I received an email from a very friendly Michelle, congratulating us and offering some options for my boyfriend’s box. Everything was so personalized. From the emails, to the box contents, to the little handwritten card. I am so happy I decided to purchase The Rad Dad Box!!
