When Zoey was a newborn, I signed her up for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which means she received a FREE, brand new book in the mail every month up until she turned 5 years old. Once Zoey turned 3, she started to really notice and look forward to receiving mail every month. It was a sad day when she received her final book in the mail: Kindergarten, Here I Come! She knew it meant no more books in the mail, and even though it has been five months since she received that book, she still asks me if anything is coming in the mail for her.
I have been looking at subscription boxes for a while as a way to supplement the Imagination Library. When she was younger, I looked into Citrus Lane, but it seemed to be tailored for babies and toddlers more than young children. I believe it has changed a bit now, but now that she is 5 years old and very creative, I wanted to get her a box that was more than just toys and body products. That said, I will likely sign up for Citrus Lane if we get pregnant again.
For Zoey, I wanted to get something that would challenge her and keep her busy. That is when I discovered the Crates!
We signed Zoey up for Kiwi Crate a couple of weeks ago when my friend Emily sent me a special discount. I figured now was as good a time as ever, so we finally signed up for Zoey’s first crate and it’s on the way! Every month she will receive a new box that includes 2-3 activities ranging from arts and crafts, to adventure activities, science and engineering, etc. The boxes are designed for her specific age and to inspire her to see the world around her differently.
I plan to do unboxings each month as something fun and different on the blog. These crates would be a great gift, whether you have a child of your own, or nieces and nephews that you want to buy for.
