Koala Crate Review

Last month we signed up for the Koala Crate. It is a subscription box for 3-4 year olds. It includes all the materials needed for three hands-on projects. Every month is a different theme, this crate was colors.

 This is everything that came in the box:

  • jumbo crayons
  • watercolors
  • banner and cord
  • soft color dice
  • color sheets
  • coloring flashcards
  • instruction booklet
  • Imagine magazine (partner with Highlights)
First we played the "color scavenger hunt" where your child rolls the dice, then finds the color sheet to match the color rolled, then searches for an item in the house of that color and places it on top of the color sheet. Little A loved it! 

Next, we decorated our banner triangles with crayons and watercolors...

Then we experimented mixing colors by holding two of the color sheets up to the light to see what color is made.

Then we used the watercolors again to paint the flashcards.

I loved that the magazine was reminiscent of Highlights magazine, because I used to read that as a child :) Little A spent quite some time paging through it, we have yet to finish all the activities inside.

Bottom Line: I definitely recommend this subscription. I felt that the materials are high quality and it is a great hands-on learning tool. We love getting surprises in the mail and the Koala Crate doesn't disappoint! You can find a coupon for your first box here. This company also has subscription boxes for older children as well, so be sure to check them out!

Have you ever tried a children's subscription box? What did you think?

  1. I didn't even know that they had subscription boxes for kids. I think that's awesome! My daughter just turned 2 recently but I would love to try something like this one day. Looks like fun!
