Koala Crate Subscription Box Review & Coupon November 2015 - booklet

This is the booklet that was included. This month’s theme is storytime!

This was my first package from Koala Crate, which is super exciting! I don’t have any preschool aged children, so I had to get a little help from my two buddies, Jagger and Brooklyn, and their mom, Claudia. Thanks so much for helping, guys!

This is the inside of the booklet. There were three projects this month: Puppet Theater, Dress-Up Puppets, and ABC Card Games. Fun! This also gives you some idea of what the instructions look like. The instructions are clear and easy-to follow, with pictures to go along with the words for our little pre-readers.

Here’s a better look at the Dress-Up Puppets. Good job, kids!

Koala Crate Subscription Box Review & Coupon November 2015 - cards

Here’s little Brooklyn working on her ABC Cards. The cards have the letter on one side, and an item beginning with that letter on the other (with its picture). I have seen cards like these before, but never ones that you color yourself. That must help with learning a lot!

Here’s Jagger working on his cards, with the puppet theater and puppets nearby.

The Verdict: I love everything that Kiwi Crate makes, and these guys really loved their first Koala Crate! Like Kiwi Crate’s other offerrings, Koala Crate does require a good bit of adult involvement and supervision. If you want to just hand your child something to keep them busy for a while, I would not judge you! But this is not the activity for that. This is more about bonding with your child, crafting and learning together. It’s very well put together, and it’s a pretty amazing value at $20 a month!

What do you think of Koala Crate?

  1. Thank you so much for the detailed review of Koala crate! My son will be 3 next month and I have been thinking about this sub for him as I ended Citrus Lane a few months ago and I wanted to move to activity-based box. As a working mom, I don’t want to spend time to search for the age-appropriate crafts, go to the store and wait in long line (my local store is always crowded) and mostly likely forget a couple of items, lol. 3 activities for $20 is a good price point and the time spent together with your children is always priceless! It is especially nice during the cold months. I am going to search MSA listings and see what else is good for 3 year old.
