HOOT For Kids Subscription Box Review – September 2017
Hoot for Kids is a monthly toy and activity treasure box for kids aged newborn to 6 years. Toys and activities are tailored to your child’s developmental stage.
Hoot for Kids is a box that will vary based on the recipient. When you sign up you will fill out a questionnaire about your child. Based on your child’s age and gender (or choice of a neutral box), your box will be very personalized. Therefore your box may look very different from mine.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This review is of the $34.99 + shipping monthly box, customized for a 3-year-old girl.

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Each item in the box was listed along with some information about the benefits of the toy and what areas they might help strengthen such as creative play, fine motor skills, etc.
I always enjoy seeing a handwritten note in a subscription box. It makes the box feel more personal and shows me that this is a smaller company that really appreciates my business.
The activity card gave helpful tips on two games I can play at home with my daughter.
Maped Color’Peps Gel Crayons – Value $24.95
These gel crayons write so smoothly! They are a real pleasure to draw with and have a much bolder look than regular crayons. The carrying case is helpful for when we are out at restaurants and I want to bring something along in my bag to help keep the kids occupied.
Petit Collage In the Garden Coloring Book – Value $7.00
We love Petit Collage items; we’ve always found them to be high quality with a beautiful aesthetic. This coloring book is great for my three-year-old because the pictures are large and don’t have many frustratingly small details which her fine motor skills aren’t quite ready to tackle.
Manhattan Toy Company Plush Unicorn – Value $13.00
Yes to all things unicorn! My daughter loves the color pink, all stuffed animals, and unicorns. So this was a huge hit!
Petite Sweets Ice Cream Scented Erasers – Value $6.73
These erasers are functional and adorable. They have a delicate vanilla scent and each one is a different color. We had to keep the box which looks like a mini ice cream truck.
Petit Collage Ice Pops Memory Game – Value $14.00
Yay, another item by Petit Collage! Matching games are great for improving memory skills and my daughter never tires of playing them. This new version with brightly colored glittery popsicles makes a nice addition to our growing matching game collection. It’s a definite win for our family.
Verdict: We adored our first Hoot for Kids box. I felt that every item they sent matched my daughter’s age and interests. The total value of the box was $65.68 which is well over the $34.99 cost of the box plus shipping. Shipping for this box to NJ was $15.18 and pricey, so that is something to keep in mind. Hoot for Kids can be ordered as a one-off box and would make a great gift, and it can also be a monthly subscription.
