  1. Yes to reviews!!

  2. Yes to a review

  3. I ended up ordering a couple days ago, and it shipped a day later! Will try to remember to update here (saving for my daughter for Christmas, but will probably open it to look at things, then repackage). Hoping it’s the polar bear one like they said, because she likes those. I signed up for the 6 months, used the code, and got first month for $10 (to cover shipping). The nice thing is, the 6-month appears to be a pay each month, cancel whenever. The yearlong one, you have to pay all at once though.

    • Hi Jill! This is great to hear – we can’t wait to hear what you think!

  4. I would love to see a review for this

    • Glad to hear it, Shelly!

  5. What a great box! I can’t wait until my niece is older (and I kind of want the panda one for myself lol).

  6. I would love to see it reviewed! I just got something similar for my niece and nephew for Christmas. They are getting a symbolic adoption of a wild animal (black Jaguar and a red panda)! It’s similar to this-stuffed animal, adoption paper, photo, card about the specific animal and a gift bag. But it was much more expensive!

    • Awesome! Thanks for letting us know, Kelle!

  7. YES please review! I would be interested to see what each sub tier includes to get a sense for what is typically included.

  8. Omg I didn’t know this existed. I just signed my toddler up!!

  9. Looks great, but my kids are vegan. I won’t let them eat shark meat. Useless recipe for us!

    • Get the mini box…just stuffed animal, book, passport. No recipe.

    • I may be wrong but I’d guess it’s not a shark meat recipe. Shark meat is uncommon to eat in the US, some species are endangered and the mercury content is very high. And the giraffe box certainly doesn’t have a giraffe meat recipe

      I’d imagine the recipe is for something like cupcakes with a fin on them. Now, again, I may be wrong but that’s my assumption. Recipe likely isn’t vegan but it would be more along the lines of using nut milk and an egg replacer

      • I agree, Liz. I HIGHLY doubt they’re sending a shark meat recipe.

      • Jen, no sub for children will start by making you learn about the animal and how wonderful it is and then say: “and this is how we cook Rufus!”

      • Dea, your comment made me laugh, particularly because I used to have a guinea pig named Rufus! (And some South American cultures do eat guinea pig…)

    • Someone is a control freak.

    • Highly doubt there’s a recipe using shark meat 😂

  10. I would much rather see the Helping Animals box reviewed. (But I don’t have children.)

  11. This is SO cute! I love it! I grew up alongside Zooboomafoo and am really grateful for all of the knowledge that the show imparted to me. I think it instilled a lifelong passion and curiosity for animals. This would be awesome for young ones (I’d low key like one of these for myself too, LOL).

  12. Animal education is SOOOOOOO important in my book, and I think that this is a great idea.

    I remember how disappointed I was when I went to the Georgia Aquarium within a year of its opening. There was no signage with educational components for any age group – not even “this fish lives mostly in the waters around country X and is actually related to animal XYZ. Moreover, this fish can live to [insert number] years.”

  13. Sure! I agree on the comment it would be nice to have a version without the stuffed animals, as my kids have loads of toys they have accumulated already.

    I’d recommend they do collectable flash cards instead, like each box has 5 flashcards on different species of the chosen animal, that match in a set with flashcards from other boxes. That way it’s a functional toy and learning game at the same time.

  14. I’d like to see a review. Great idea but wish there was an option without the “animal friends” because we have enough of those.

  15. I’d like to see this reviewed!

  16. Yes! This will be percent for my great nieces and great nephew.
