Choosing The Best Subscription Boxes For Toddlers

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure here.

Let me guess, you have a little one you are constantly trying to stay one step ahead of. This little one is curious about everything and wants to inspect all kinds of things they come across. Sounding familiar? Yeah, I totally understand! Most toddlers are very active and it can be a bit tiring keeping them happy and busy. To help you, I have gathered some subscription boxes for toddlers to save you some time and energy in looking for activities and ideas.

Why are subscription boxes so popular?

Subscription boxes offer variety! Most people like to try new things, get new things, and learn new things. A subscription box can help do each of those without you having to do a lot of research and preparation. For toddlers, basically everything is new to them so it’s all exciting!

Do you like saving time? You’re in good company! Most of us want to get more done in less time, so we can get the most out of our day. Signing up for a subscription box can do just that, help you get more done in less time.

Instead of spending your time searching for fun activities or books for your toddler, then spending more time buying the materials/books, you could get a subscription box and have activities/materials/books/etc show up at your door ready to rock.

Are there subscription boxes for toddlers?

The short answer… yes! Toddlers are often curious little people who just want to explore and learn about the world around them. Subscription boxes have become more popular as parents find that coming up with ideas, finding the materials, and doing different activities all the time to keep their young explorer busy can be hard to keep up with!

The subscription takes the guess work out of what to do next and delivers the materials you’ll need right to your door. If you’re curious about how a subscription box works, read this.

Take a look at these fun subscription boxes below. Coming from Cratejoy and Kiwico, these boxes are sure to deliver hours of fun and learning for your toddler!

How do I pick the right box for my toddler?

Now that we’ve talked a bit about why people like subscription boxes and we’ve established that there are some fun ones for toddlers, how do you go about picking one? Here comes the fun, even for you!

Below, I have shared several different options your toddler just might like. One important thing to think about first is how old your child is. If your kiddo is 18 months old, the Panda Crate would probably be a great fit because each month’s boxes are put together based on their age and developmental stage. It basically grows with them up until 24 months.

Next, you can consider your kiddo’s likes and dislikes. If they really enjoy music, the Songbird Box could be a fun match because it is all about music! They have a box for babies and toddlers and another for kids 3-6, this one could last for awhile.

Then, you can decide if your toddler likes doing crafts and activities. If so, the Curiosity Box – The Discovery Craft and Educational Box, could be a lot of fun for them. Or yet another option for fun crafts is The Create Kit, I know- too many choices!

Take a minute to browse through the boxes below, with your child in mind you just might find a great fit! Keep in mind, you can always just order one box to see how it goes then continue with the subscription if your kiddo enjoys it. If they don’t like it, it’s easy to switch to another box.

    Hope you are well? This post was very good and useful. I had no idea you could get subscription boxes for kids activities. Mind blown!

    It really does take out the hard work for any parents and the cost is also very reasonable.

    Do these guys have a UK facility they ship from or is it just USA?

    • Hello! I’m so glad you now know that you their are subscription boxes for kids! Great for everyone all around:)

      Great question! KiwiCo ships all around the world, when you select a box on their website such as the Panda Crate there is a drop-down menu in the top right corner that allows you to change the country the box(es) will be delivered to. I hope you are able to find the best one for your toddler! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

You all will agree with me that children from  age 1 to 5 are  are very curious and want to do what ever they see the there older ones doing  do even knowing if it’s wrong or right, and this subscription box is really going to help them Learn  what they are  supposed to know at that age.
