I discovered subscription boxes five years ago and have tried several of them. My favorite part about these boxes is that you can find a variety of themes and topics to suit your child’s interests and yours!
If your kids are like mine, they have way too many toys and probably don’t “need” anything. Instead of gifting another toy, I suggest purchasing a subscription box or a one time box (if available) as a gift.
Check out my five favorite kid or kid-friendly subscription boxes.
As a former Spanish teacher raising two bilingual kids, Hola Amigo Box has become my favorite subscription box, hands down. Co-founders and educators Conchita and Allison plan and design each of the three age specific Hola Amigo Boxes. The monthly subscription options include: Imagina Toddler Busy Bag, Descubre Early Learner, and Explora Elementary. The best part is that for only $10, you can add a sibling kit that includes an additional set of consumable products inside each monthly box.
After living overseas and visiting new countries with my young children, I was eager to continue exposing them to other parts of the world. With Little Passports World Edition, children are able to explore new countries and cultures. They also offer the following play-based science and geography boxes: USA Edition, Early Explorers, Science Junior, and Science Expeditions. You can choose to pay monthly or sign up for a 6- or 12-month subscription to save more.
If you are interested in a science or STEAM box, I highly recommend the Kiwi Crate (ages 5-8 ) and the Tinker Crate (ages 9-14) by Kiwi Co. These boxes incorporate science experiments and art in each box. We subscribed when my son was five years old, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with him as we completed the projects together.
My husband and I subscribed to the Date Night In Box during the pandemic. That’s when I discovered the Kids Night In Box by accident! The boxes include interactive activities, a custom thematic book, music and a yummy treat “all centered around life lessons inspired by real life mom adventures”. My kids loved the first box we ordered!
I purchased our first Days United Jewish holiday box earlier this year for Passover. The unique Seder plate was a hit with my in-laws and kids. We enjoyed this box so much that I ordered a Rosh Hashanah one and can’t wait to use it in a few weeks. Days also offers Chinese and Indian boxes too (although I haven’t tried them yet). This subscription box is one for the whole family to enjoy!
