My son (age 7) received a one year subscription for Christmas and so far we are 4 boxes in and he absolutely loves it! Our boxes have been a continual theme - The World > France > Japan > England. Each box has two building activities, usually a famous landmark, annual tradition and/or toy/game. For example France was painting a stain glass cathedral window and making a racing cyclist (Tour de France). So far all of the builds have been completely different, very high quality and assembly has ranged from easy to just the right amount of critical thinking. Each month we also receive 6 high quality pages about each country that show a map of the area, fun facts, interesting history, a bonus activity (materials not included) and an easy recipe to make. All of the pages have pre-punched holes to add together to make a book. Overall we are SO happy with the boxes and would definitely recommend!

"Not the best"

One of the toys broke within 1 day of use. And i thought i had only bought the one box but was charged with another box 2 months later. I feel the sign up process is misleading since I didnt know I would be automatically charged again. Also, hard to contact them to notify of broken toy!

I purchase the panda crates for my 7 month old. The coins for the box are way too small for a 7 month old. If I ever forgot one or left him alone with the toy, he could have gotten it lodged in his mouth. I contacted them and they sent me the box for 12 month old. Same sized pieces in the puzzles. The quality isn’t the greatest. I would rather get toys I know my son will be okay playing with. Don’t leave your child unattended.

I liked this okay, but my grandson grew tired of them. When I tried to cancel my renewed subscription they refused to cancel it. I have to pay for the remaining 4 crates on my subscription and then they wont autorenew it. So, you can cancel autorenew but you CANNOT CANCEL subscriptions.

"Auto renews subscriptions. AVOID. "

The boxes were fun . The issue is the subscription auto renews without any warning, and so far they have not given me a refund. Avoid this company.

Kiwi Crate collects a profit off of false and misleading advertising at the expense of children. It is Christmas Eve and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE DELIVERY that was ORDERED PAID FOR under the guarantee That the order would be received by 12/24. There is absolutely zero excusable reason that a company would advertise that a GIFT FOR CHILDREN would arrive BY CHRISTMAS and not deliver. It’s honestly appalling. Kiwi Crate has lost a repeat customer: I had a 10 month subscription in 2018 and have FOUR subscriptions currently (on top of the 4 additional gifts in which were not delivered): and I will be canceling all subscriptions immediately. I cannot recommend a company who doesn’t stand by its word, I cannot help but feel deceived and disappointed for my kids. I understand it is difficult to guarantee deliveries around the holiday season, however this is EXACTLY what Kiwi Crate had marketed to last minute shoppers. Had Kiwi Crate been transparent about their shipping limitations, I would have made alternative arrangements for gifts for my children. The shipping status confirmed delivery would be received on Dec 24, and now I’m left empty handed on Christmas morning. This is inexcusable and an obvious representation of the way this company conducts its business.

I am very unhappy with Kiwi and will not order anything from then again. My grandson enjoyed the boxes for a year, and then I tried to change the order to 6 times a year as they were piling up. They stopped the subscription for one month, then resumed it for a full 12 months and will not give me a refund or top the deliveries.
