Who doesn’t like all these subscription box services? Well, I stumbled on another one that intrigued me. Since I like educational type things, I wanted to give Little Thinker Box a try. They gave me the opportunity to try 1 box in exchange for my honest review of the product.
Baby girl and I are taking a short break from our structured preschool activities while I try to gather and prepare the next set. This came at just the right time to keep us motivated and active, without the hassle of my needing to plan ahead.
What is the Little Thinker Box?
I pulled the following information right off the Kidable Adventures website.
The Little Thinker Box is a monthly subscription service for children preparing to enter Pre-K or Kindergarten. Each month the child is sent a themed-based activity box that focuses on reading, writing, math, science, and other skills; using fun games, crafts, and experiments. Each month’s theme is a surprise!
Ivy & Shelby’s Thoughts
For starters, I was beyond impressed with the care and thought put into the activities. I was given a January box about health. The box included a parent guide to lead me through the activities, but even more impressive is that many of the items were printed on a quality card stock, rather than plain printer paper. Individual crafts or activities were separated in their own sealed bags and labelled appropriately for easy identification. Finally, everything is included like glue dots for our V craft and fabric markers for the market bag to decorate yourself, just to name a few items.
My favorite part about this activity box is that it’s full of activities that are already planned out for the month and they’re themed! I’m not the most organized or the best at crafts, so this took all the guess work out of it for me. It was perfect for those moments when the kiddo was dying to do something different and needed a craft last minute!

While the little one isn’t the best at explaining what she likes or doesn’t like, it was obvious that she was very proud of her crafts. The moment her daddy came home for the evening, she’d rush to the kitchen to grab her crafts to show him her work.
Having the worksheets and speaking prompts made it easy for me to include what we learned in every part of our lives. Since our theme was about health and vegetables, I was able to talk to her about fruits and vegetables at meal times for extra learning opportunities that I’d previously taken for granted simply because I wasn’t thinking about it.
|A few more activities|
At the time of this posting, I still haven’t completed all the activities in the box. That means there’s a lot that wasn’t pictured here. I LOVE IT! There’s so many activities that you truly could do a couple activities a week and keep your kiddo busy for the whole month!
If I’ve sparked your interest in this subscription box and you’d like to try it for yourself, Kidable Adventures provided a coupon code that you can use for 20% off your first month. Use code Ivy2014 through 4/22/14. You can cancel your subscription anytime, but I don’t think you’ll want to! Go to the Little Thinker Box subscription page to place your order and use your discount code.
There are several subscription options to choose from, including a single month to try for $28. If all their boxes are as jam-packed as this one was, you’re definitely getting your money’s worth with any option you choose (in my opinion)!
