We received Ocean Treasures over the weekend and played with it briefly between beach and other outdoor activities. My 4-year old woke me up at 5:30am Monday morning asking if we can play with it again. Her and I did some of the activities, plus made an egg carton pirate ship to go with it, for almost 3 hours! She was so engaged and enjoyed it thoroughly. The bunny box was great too, but this one is really phenomenal. It is items that I wouldn't have thought to buy and is really different for her to play with. I expect we will enjoy this for many more days, weeks, etc.
Jordan, your review has made my entire night, week, month, made it all! Thank you so much for this! I love being able to create these (with the help of my kiddos of course :-) ), and so happy that I can share with others! I LOVE the egg carton pirate ship idea!
This box has been a huge hit in our home. My kiddo has been engaged in the activities and asked to do more. I love that everything you need is included in the box. Highly recommend for preschool and kindergarteners.
This box is awesome! My 4.5yo absolutely loved it. She says she wants to do her "ocean work" (the Ocean Treasures edition of this box) while her big sisters do virtual school. The contents are carefully curated and thoughtfully put together. We do one or two of the suggested activities each day. They are age-appropriate and fun. My daughter really loved the one where I hid the starfish letter cards and she had to find them. It challenged her but was a great way to start identifying lowercase letters. Looking forward to the next box!
This box is amazing! It is easy to see that each activity and item within was chosen carefully with the Pre-K to Kindergarten child in mind. I love this subscription and can’t see myself ever ending it!
Melissa, I am truly blessed to work with people like you! It is amazing to hear how I can help have an impact on children across the country and help to make parent/teacher lives just that much easier! Thank you so much!
I thought that this could be a really valuable teaching tool with my daughter at home this year. I am not a teacher so I don’t understand lesson plans. I thought this was not as user-friendly as it could be for the layperson. Also, for the price, I feel that many of the activities were just repeated. The preschool component wasn’t much different from Kindergarten and my daughter had a difficult time following. It was also very pricey.
Overall the quality of this box is good. There are a lot of fun activities. My problem is the length of time it took to ship and how the box isn't seasonally appropriate anymore. I ordered this box in early-mid November and it didn't arrive until right before Christmas. It's fill with pumpkins and fall leaves and basically feels a bit like a waste being that shipping was over a month long and the ground is covered in a foot of snow. I will add that I understand that the postal service is really slow right now but the item didn't ship from the seller for over a month.
It’s just days away from Christmas and I received a fall box. This is disappointing, maybe I did something wrong when I ordered?!
I received at the end of December but the box was full of Halloween fall stuff so basically packing it away till next year, the box itself was fabulous very well put together can’t wait for next year to pull it out.
My son loves the summer ocean theme and is constantly asking to play with it and have me read the book over and over again. I can't wait to see what the next theme is for us to enjoy. I've tried several subscription boxes for learning activities and this one is a keeper. It's well worth the price.
We received the ocean crate and it's amazing! The book, materials and comprehensive learning activities were wonderful and the materials were high quality. My daughter loved it!
My daughter loves this box. As a parent and a teacher, this is a wonderful resource to use with my children.
This box is awesome!! I am so impressed with how organized everything is and all of the included activities. I’ve been doing the activities 1-2 at a time with my preschool daughter at home and she is so engaged each time I bring out the box. I’m at home like everyone else right now, but I know when I get back to work (I’m a speech language pathologist) I’ll be able to use this box with everyone on my caseload!
