Connect, Play, and Celebrate With Your Family!

If your family enjoys games, puzzles, popcorn, and prompts that get you laughing & chatting at the dinner table, then you're going to LOVE subscribing to Together Unplugged! Best for families with kids ages 5-10. Children age 4 can usually participate with a little help. No contracts or commitments. Skip, Cancel, Restart anytime.

  • AWESOME family games! Many games that are suited for kids are B-O-R-I-N-G for parents. Not ours! We researched & tested nearly 100 games to find the best. We also find the best instructional video for each game or create our own to save you time. On top of all that, we create & add game enhancements when applicable. For example, if a game uses paper score cards, we create a reusable dry erase board to make the game better than store-bought!
  • QUALITY jigsaw puzzles. Not the flimsy kind that have pieces that peel and warp easily. We source from the best puzzle companies like Ravensburger and Masterpieces. Our puzzles are always between 60-200 pieces, have engaging images, and sometimes have seasonal themes or cool features like glow-in-the-dark print or find and seek pictures. Jigsaw puzzles are the secret tool of many parents to foster wonderful conversation with their children in a calm & relaxed environment. Puzzles offer many cognitive & focus benefits as well!
  • POPCORN! Get your popcorn! We found an effective strategy to get the family around the table for each Together Unplugged family-time session. The smell of freshly popped popcorn in a bowl on the table with a game, puzzle, or other activity ready to go. We include 4 bags of popcorn in every box, hoping that your family will find this strategy as enjoyable & effective.
  • CHAT & LAUGH pack. Every box includes a resource of 40 new conversation starters, would-you-rather question scenarios, jokes, and riddles. We pull these out and do a few every night at the dinner table to add fun to our conversation. Kids love these will start reminding you to bring them out if you forget!
  • IN ADDITION to the items listed above, in every box you'll find a template to record monthly family goals & thoughts of gratitude, a calendar that gives you a heads-up on fun & patriotic holidays your family may want to celebrate, a "Guess in 5 Clues" challenge for two holidays or historic figures related to the current month, an interactive family activity with connected story & life lesson, and a certificate of recognition to display in your home in celebration of your extra unplugged time together!

Q: I’m really excited about this box becoming available again! Do you expect there to be spots open in May? When is the best date to check in to get an order placed? I’m looking forward to placing mine!Asked by Angela M., April 2020

Together Unplugged answered...April 2020

Hello Angela, thank you very much for your interest in Together Unplugged
and for this great question!

On the 1st of each month, our cart opens for new subscribers to sign up for
the following month’s box. For example, coming up on May 1st, the cart will
open for new June subscriptions to be added. We’re currently only able to
add 20-30 new subscriptions per month, typically causing us to sell out
around the middle of the month.

If you hop on within the first week of May you should be able to subscribe,
beginning with the June box. We’re very thankful to be growing in
popularity as more families find out about us, and hope to grow in our
capacity to take on more new subscribers in the near future.

Q: I want to order this for my brother's family, but they have 3 babies and 3 kids ages 5-9. Is this box right for them?Asked by Hannah P., December 2019

Together Unplugged answered...December 2019

Hello Hannah and thank you very much for inquiring with us!

The items we include are typically best suited for kids 6 and older, so it
would be a good fit for the older children in your brother’s family, but
not the babies.

In regards to families that have children with similar age spans, though,
we think it’s great for babies & toddlers to see the rest of the family
interacting regularly in the absence of screens, even if hanging out in a
high chair at the table and just being part of the group. They come to
realize that these gatherings are a regular, expected part of family
routines, and they eventually grow into being able to participate more and
more, which is exciting for them.

Thank you again for your question, and for considering...

December boxes out in the next few days so they will arrive between 12/6 -
12/10.

Thank you for considering the gift of unplugged together-time! 😊

Q: I want to give a subscription to my brothers family for Christmas. Can I get the first box sent to me to wrap for Christmas and the rest sent directly to my brother’s house?Asked by Susan H., November 2019

My kids are 8, 4, 2, and newborn and we had fun opening and exploring our box! They all spent at least an hour playing in the crinkle paper.

My oldest was most excited about the Highlights magazine which he has claimed as his own, while I was geeking out over the HUGE Mad Libs book and Ravensberg puzzle. Such nostalgia that I’ll enjoy sharing with my kids. I won’t give away all the contents but know that even my husband will like the bamboozled game simply to see my contorted faces!

I am also glad there were extra goodies and Conversation tips for us to use during those quiet moments at dinner and during car rides. So much goodness in one package! I look forward to next month!!

This review makes us light up with joy, Ayres Family! It's a challenge to curate boxes that appeal to everyone in the family. We work very hard at this, though, because we are deeply passionate about our mission of helping families spend more face-to-face, screen-free, undistracted time together. This is where relationships are built & strengthened.

Thank you again for such a thorough, thoughtful review. We are so happy your family is finding your boxes useful in spending more quality time together unplugged!

Tons of family fun in box

I am so glad that I found this subscription box. It is exactly what I wanted for my family. We have received 2 boxes so far and both exceeded my expectations. My kids, ages 15, 11, and 7 have had lots of fun that has lasted for many weeks. We already have a stock of games at home, but this box added more to our family time - great ideas on how to have fun throughout the month and supplies galore (card or board games, brain games, minute to win it challenges, conversations starters, quizzes, and a family team activity). Everyone gets involved, it is almost magical how it brings us together. The box has also given me other ideas for family time. Thank you so much for doing a terrific job curating this. I will definitely keep this subscription for the year (and likely will miss it when the year is up).

I can’t recommend this box enough. There’s so much thought and love inside this box. Every month I’m amazed at how many activities they manage to squeeze inside! It really does last last all month long. I’ve laughed so hard I’ve cried! The minute-to-win-it challenges are so creative and fun. This box is a gem.

This box is chock full of great family activities, and the games & materials are all high quality. Everything is organized, packaged & labelled intuitively - a huge bonus if you're a busy person or if you're easily overwhelmed. With the calendar and the tips sheets included (which are on cardstock!) it lays out when, how, and even why to use each item. Especially love the social-emotional components like goal sheets & conversation starter cards. Highly recommend!

I have subscribed to probably 30 boxes over the last several years. This one is my very favorite. Probably because it's about so much more than the stuff inside. The calendar activities, the discussion prompts, the jokes, the team building challenges -- everything in the box is focused on making it easy to get my kid off a screen and excited to connect. It's perfect for those slow moments when it's most tempting to turn on the tv (like Sunday afternoon or pretty much every moment during this weird COVID lockdown period). You can tell how much love and care goes into creating and curating the box. It's worth every penny.

What an incredible honor it is to receive this review. It summarizes the goals we have for each box better than we could have written ourselves! Not only that, but to hear that you are such an experienced sub box aficionado and rank us #1 is the BEST compliment we could ever hope for.

Our little team sends a big "THANK YOU!" out to you, Jenny. We greatly appreciate the time you took to leave this review!!!

A great way to get Unplugged.

I love the variety of options in this box and that it’s fun for my whole family. We love a game night so having some new curated items is a blast. What we know about screen time is that it’s more effective to reduce it if you replace it with other enjoyable activities, this box is a perfect way to do that.

Together Unplugged said...Oct 08, 2019

Thank you very much, Emily! We found what you said about having a new supply of alternative activities around the house to help get off screens to be absolutely true in our home as well. In fact, this is what inspired us to create Together Unplugged with our mission to help other families with this challenge!

Thanks again and happy unplugging with family!

Very Well Curated!

This is a very well thought out box. Our box contained several games, a Highlight magazine, including the crafting supplies to make one of the activities in the magazine. In addition the box contains prompts for family gratitude moments and educational materials so families could learn a little about the the history of several holidays during the month. I love the idea to include material like the prompts which encourage family bonding. Overall, I highly recommend this box

Together Unplugged said...Oct 08, 2019

Thank you, Erica & family, for such a thoughtful & comprehensive review! It brings us great joy to hear you say that you are finding value in the different components of your monthly boxes. We strive to provide as many ways for families to interact as we can in each box, in hopes of promoting valuable & meaningful experiences together.

Ultimately, the real value comes from if & how these resources are used, and it sounds like your family is taking full advantage of the items to create meaningful experiences together. This makes us incredibly happy and super grateful to have you as a subscriber. Much appreciation from our family to yours!
