Where have I been the past three or four years? I did not even realize that subscription boxes had become all the rage until I created a spreadsheet of over 125! This list wasn’t just for kids but includes adults and pets as well as crafters and foodies. Today I want to share the top 10 choices I have found for my age of children.
These subscription boxes for kid’s are great for children in the birth to age 12 category. We have tried each and everyone from our list and love them all. My kids wish we could have a subscription to each one all the time but our budget won’t allow for that. I think these subscription boxes would make a lovely Easter present, End of School gift, or Graduating to a new grade type gift. Of course you don’t want to forget Christmas or birthday’s either.

1. Nerd Block Jr.- we did a review and giveaway for Nerd Block Jr. Boys back in Fall of 2014. My daughter was super excited to find out that daddy gave her a 3 month subscription. This is a single or multiple month subscription box for either boys, girls, video gamers, or horror lovers. Nerd Block Jr is a great option for all the little nerds, geeks, and tech lovers in your life.
2. Imaginative University– Imaginative “U” kits vary from month to month. Some months focus on arts and crafts while other months focus on investigations, stories, or challenges. Some kits will include a book that goes along with the month’s activities while others will simply be loaded with items needed to complete the projects. No matter the contents, every month’s activities are centered around fun and creativity! Very reasonably priced 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions as well as 1 month trial options available through Imaginative University.
3. Bramble Box-Bramble box monthly subscription boxes and pretend play prop boxes for kids age 3 – 8 contain all the materials required for hours of open-ended fun; building and strengthening essential development skills. Materials are carefully selected to be versatile, to allow children to extend and elaborate on their play. Activity ideas are included for additional inspiration. Each kit is designed to nurture the imagination and allow children to explore the world around them. A new theme – like post office, detective, scientist, florist or community helper – every month.
4. Space Scouts-Each monthly packet will include a Space Scouts exploration plan describing the place to be scouted, a Space Scouts magnet to add to the Space Scouts lunchbox, a Space Scouts sticker to add to the Space Scouts solar system poster, a Space Scouts activity sheet loaded with puzzles, games, and activities, a Space Scouts sticker scramble (unscramble the numbered stickers to reveal a surprise!), a Space Scouts souvenir toy to use in learning activities, a Space Scouts constellation card, and a Space Scouts constellation activity sheet that includes the mythological stories and other learning activities to help your child identify the constellation in the night sky.
5. Peekapak (now completely digital) With Peekapak, the magic of storytelling is combined with the excitement of hands-on learning. Our at-home storybook and activities pack complements your child’s in-class curriculum, is aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and supports Social and Emotional Learning (SEL).

7. Junior Explorers– Kia and Kyle are our resident Junior Explorers who accompany your child on every adventure. Together they will explore amazing places like the Arctic, Serengeti and Amazon, having fun while learning about these regions and the animals that live there! I cannot wait to see how much Geography and convservation my kids learn from Kia and Kyle!
8. EEME– I have had my eye on EEME for over a year now and am super stoked to be able to share our review as well as a giveaway with you in a few weeks!
EEME makes hands-on projects and online video curricula that give 7-12 year old kids and their parents something fun to work on together while learning about the fundamentals of electronics. EEME’s goal? To prep kids for the science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) opportunities of tomorrow, while making sure they have a blast at the same time.
9. The Young Scientist Club- The Young Scientists Club was founded in 1999 to fulfill a clear and simple mission: to engage boys and girls around the world in an educational science adventure that lasts a lifetime. They do this by offering quality, science products that fascinate young scientists with the wonders of scientific discovery and spark their interest in future scientific endeavors. All of their products are designed by a team of Harvard graduates, scientists, educators, and parents with one purpose in mind-to combine fun and fascination with quality and learning in each and every product.
We actually bought a few of these at a local mega grocery store on clearance a few year’s ago. I love that each kit contains 3 different kits which means you will have 36 topics to study over a 12 month subscription period. 25% off sale going on right now at Educents for Young Scientist Club.
10. TBD well the plan was to have all 10 figured out by the time this went to press but I am waiting on some confirmations from a few different PR reps. As soon as we get confirmation I will update this spot. Stay tuned to read the full reviews for each and everyone of these boxes later this month!
If your house is anything like ours (overrun with toys and stuffed animals) then subscription boxes could be a very nice gift. I know that relatives often have trouble picking out meaningful and age appropriate gifts at times. Another reason why subscription boxes make a great choice for any gift wishlist.
