Subscription box services are all the rage now for adults, but even kids can get in on the action with KiwiCo!
I love giving gifts that kids can use for longer than just a few days. It’s nice to know that a gift will last for a while and continue to bring kids joy. Inspire your kids’ or grandkids’ learning and creativity with a monthly subscription box from KiwiCo. Plus, the kids will love getting their own mail!

My KiwiCo Experience
I signed up for the Koala Crate for my 3-year-old daughter. We received the Ocean Games box pictured elsewhere in this post for one of the months and also a delightful Doctor’s Visit box.
My 3-year-old had so much fun putting her Doctor’s Visit kit together! The box comes with all the supplies you’ll need, plus a TON of suggestions for activities and games to play using the items in your box.
Even my 6-year-old got in on the action as they pretended to visit the doctor. So cute (and bonus – no batteries necessary in this kit!).
I was especially impressed with the supplemental information for parents. There is a booklet included that helps you use the items in the box to explore the theme more fully with your child. So besides just helping your child be comfortable with going to the doctor, you’ll also learn how to recognize and teach empathy in your child. It’s definitely not a disposable, “one-and-done” type of box!
