Ivy Kids Subscription Box Review – September 2014
Ivy Kids is a monthly educational subscription box for children ages 3-8. Each month, you will receive a kit containing a book and materials for activities based upon the story. Activities included in the kit have been specifically crafted to encourage curiosity, problem solving, reading comprehension, literacy skills, and creativity in young children.
Ivy Kids sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Every Ivy Kids box has a summary of the materials and the activities in the lid of the box. It also tells you that the guide included in the kit helps you modify each game based on the age and development for your child!
The book this month is called Color Zoo by Lois Ehlert, and the bookmark (on the right) lists questions to help encourage reading comprehension as you guide your child through the story.
Materials and activities come sorted and separated. I like this because it’s convenient, obviously, but also because it means you can split up the activities and do them throughout the month instead of all at once.
Verdict: Education and parent-guided educational activities are things that I think are so incredibly important. I don’t have kids myself yet, but when I do I know I’ll love educational boxes like Ivy Kids. I like that there are so many activities per box, and probably my favorite thing about this subscription is that it centralizes on reading, as well as helping to build literacy- and math-skills.
