The 17 Best Toddler Subscriptions – 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards

Christen Russo
ByChristen RussoApr 10, 2022 | 9 comments

Parenting isn’t easy, especially during those tumultuous toddler years. Toddler subscription boxes can make your job a little bit easier. By curating toys, books, clothing, and other products, these services give you the tools you need to focus on celebrating those formative years of your child’s life — and each delivery provides a fun surprise to help you enjoy parenthood.

Every year, we ask our readers to share their top recommended subscriptions of all types. Then we ask our experts to share what they know about each subscription to make it easy for you to know which subscription is right for you. Below, you’ll find our insights for shopping toddler subscription boxes, and see readers’ top choices for toys, crafts, clothing, books, projects, and more fun subscriptions for your favorite toddler.

What To Look For When Shopping for Toddler Subscriptions

We’ve researched every preschool subscription box on this list, but we also understand that no two toddlers are identical — kids develop at different paces, and some of these services might be more engaging than others. With that in mind, here are a few tips for finding a subscription that works for your kiddo:

  • For toy subscriptions, look for products that support “open-ended" playtime. Younger kids will find inventive ways to play with their favorite toys. Blocks, simple problem-solving games, and STEM-focused playsets can facilitate imaginative play and promote the development of problem-solving skills.
  • Look for clothing subscriptions that adapt as your toddler grows. We’ve focused on toddler clothing subscriptions that have options for older kids. Your tyke won’t be small forever — and rather than switching to a new subscription service, you’ll want to find a company that offers options.
  • Take advantage of customization. Many preschool subscription services allow parents to choose different toys or books, adapt order frequency, or take other steps to change their subscriptions. Use these options — they’ll help you get more value for your purchase.
  • Look at each company’s past toddler subscription boxes to get an idea of how they work. We've reviewed boxes from many of these brands. Before signing up, make sure you’re aware of what the company offers.

To create this list, we handled most of the hard work: Our editors reviewed dozens of preschool subscription services, focusing on overall value, customer service, and other factors that are important to parents (and aunts, uncles, and grandparents).

With that said, let’s dive in!

The Most Popular Toddler Subscription Boxes

Read on for our reader’s recommendations for the best subscription boxes for toddlers currently available. If we missed anything, drop us a comment. If you’ve tried one of these services, be sure to leave a quick review (even if you had a poor experience — your review can help other readers avoid subscription remorse).

1. Koala Crate by KiwiCo

The Best Toddler Subscription for Learning

Koala Crate toddler subscription box contents.

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

KiwiCo is a kid’s subscription box company that offers monthly installments of educational play activities and projects. They offer subscription boxes for kids of all ages, but the Koala Crate is a toddler subscription box intended for ages 2-4. When kids “graduate" from the Koala Crate, they can move on to the Kiwi Crate (ages 5-8), then Atlas Crate (ages 6-11), and beyond.

Parents can switch lines at any time, so if your toddler outgrows the Koala Crate early, you don’t have to wait to upgrade.

Each shipment contains creative materials that teach colors, hand-eye coordination, and other skills and concepts. Parents receive an activity guide and a copy of Inspire! Magazine, which addresses early education concepts in a simple, understandable way.

The projects nurture young creators and create an excellent opportunity for bonding time. The story- and play-based approach makes learning fun, and KiwiCo offers a strong set of online resources to get the most out of each delivery.

Is This the Right Toddler Subscription Box for You?

Overall, KiwiCo's Koala Crate is an excellent and affordable option for pre-K kids. We’re big fans of the consistent high-quality approach that KiwiCo takes for all of its different lines, and the low cost of entry makes this an easy recommendation.

  • Switch boxes at any time as your child grows

Who Is This Box Good For?

Girls and boys sizes 2T to 16.

Pros

  • A large range of sizes
  • Clothes are durable and extremely soft (great for kiddo's who don't like certain fabrics)
  • Affordable prices (plus 30% discount if you keep the entire box)

Cons

  • Only sends out their own kidpik brand, so if you are looking for other clothing brands for your kids...you won't find that in this subscription box
  • The koins marketplace has popular items, but that means it's sold out often and goes quickly when restocked
  • Only ships within the US

What Our Readers Say:

Image from our review.

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

Bookroo is a book subscription service for toddlers (they also have book clubs for ages 0-12), and we love their stress-free return policy and high-quality curation. They focus on new titles, so you’ll build your home library without adding any duplicates to your shelves. They also have got a simple return policy — if you’re unhappy with a selection for any reason, you can send it back.

Choose to receive board books, picture books, or chapter books to read to your toddler. Each Bookroo box comes with 2-3 books, along with extra information on the books. Parents can also head online for fun activities and ideas for learning. They also offer an option for alternating monthly between board books and picture books if you have children of multiple ages!

Is This the Right Toddler Subscription Box for You?

If you’ve got a voracious reader, Bookroo gives you a steady supply of fantastic materials. We also appreciate Bookroo’s unique platform and its exceptional customer support. Send them an email, and they’re happy to accommodate requests — while they can’t provide specific titles, they’re more than happy to include a birthday-themed book for a toddler’s birthday month or titles that address specific areas of interest.

Pros

  • Board books are perfect for children ages 0-3
  • Options available to include picture books for older toddlers
  • Excellent curation geared towards learning and exploration

Cons

  • Books arrive individually wrapped — while it’s visually appealing it’s a bit wasteful
  • Subscription price is cheaper than the total cost of the books, but not by much

Baby Montessori toys from Lovevery subscription.

Image from our review.

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

The team behind Lovevery is dedicated to educational play. Each Lovevery toddler subscription box includes a selection of Montessori-style toys that promote age-appropriate skills.

For example, the Looker Play Kit is designed for infants aged 0-12 months and includes toys that promote visual exploration and focus. The Babbler Play Kit, designed for toddlers from 13-36 months, focuses on bilateral coordination and object permanence.

You don’t need an advanced knowledge of those developmental milestones — the experts at Lovevery provide parents with detailed information about the purpose of every toy. Their site also includes bios for the educational experts who choose the curriculum.

Is This the Right Toddler Subscription Box for You?

We love Lovevery, and we think you will, too. Even setting the educational value aside, Lovevery toys are aesthetically pleasing and ethically sourced. Many of their toys use high-quality woods from FSC-compliant sustainable sources, and cotton toys use 100% organic cotton for a softer touch. All products meet or exceed global safety standards, and shipping is eco-friendlier thanks to carbon offset projects.

Lovevery play kits give parents confidence, and that’s well worth the money — but with prices starting around $40 per month, you won’t have to spend big to give your toddler the tools they need to explore their world.

Pros

  • Follows the Montessori method of learning
  • Provides a great, fun way to engage with your kid

Cons

  • Your kid probably won’t like every toy in every kit
  • More expensive than similar toddler toy subscription boxes

What Readers Say:

“My daughter loves their subscription services and I have been very impressed with their toys. My grandson is delighted with their toys.I am a physical therapist an am amazed at how challenging and age specific their product is. But I have to say that I am very frustrated with the fact that you can't seem to reach them in a timely manner.

Image from our review.

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

Kidbox is a styling service just for kids! Each toddler subscription box includes personalized items based on your kid's size and style preferences. You’ll return anything you don’t want, free of charge, and you’ll only pay for items you keep.

Parents can select from the Kidbox Mini (6 items), Kidbox Classic (8 items), or Kidbox Deluxe (10 items). With free shipping for all returns and exchanges, this is one of the best ways to keep a toddler looking spiffy. You’ll also get access to exclusive deals and special boxes featuring unique styles (Kidbox’s Frozen-themed box would have gone over well in our home).

Best of all, if you keep the whole box, Kidbox will also make a donation to a charity of your choice.

Is This the Right Toddler Subscription Box for You?

If you’re looking for a toddler subscription box with a charitable component, this is a great choice. Many excellent subscription services donate to charity, but Kidbox is one of the only ones we’ve found that allows subscribers to guide the donation.

Overall, Kidbox is fantastic for building your child’s wardrobe — but their prices can be high compared to retail unless you take advantage of discounts by purchasing all of the items in each delivery. Browse their selection and make sure the clothes are aligned to your preferences; if that’s the case, Kidbox is an easy recommendation.

Pros

  • An online personal stylist service developed specifically for kids
  • Only keep the items you want; send the rest back with a prepaid shipping label
  • Each purchase supports the charity of your choice

Cons

  • Clothes can be expensive unless you keep all items
  • You’ll need to work closely with your stylist to get apparel you love

  • Discounts for shopping on the Honest Company website

Cons

  • Can be expensive compared with other diaper delivery subscriptions

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

Stitch Fix is the most popular personal stylist subscription, and they offer fantastic options for younger kids. Parents establish a price range and provide sizing information. Stitch Fix Kids' stylists handle the rest of the work, sending 8-12 pieces of clothing per month. You’ll pay for what you keep, but the company offers low pricing for high-quality, long-lasting clothes (individual pieces start around $10).

Stitch Fix Kids charges a modest styling fee, but that includes free shipping and returns; if you keep any items, the fee is deducted from the total. Keep all items, and you’ll receive a 25% discount on your order.

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

Why and Whale is one of the best kids' clothes boxes, but it offers quite a bit more than apparel: In addition to handpicked clothing, you’ll also receive toys, books, and more!

This box offers a boutique-like experience with high-quality items. It’s meant for children ranging from infancy to 6 years old; each month, you’ll receive clothing, durable toys, and a product or food item to make parenthood a little bit easier.

Is This the Right Toddler Subscription Box for You?

Why and Whale is one of the more expensive toddlers subscription boxes for toys and apparel, but we think the cost is justified: The service has excellent curation, and every item is durable (and adorable). If you want to avoid cheap plastic and frayed hems, here’s the service for you.

Pros

  • Handpicked apparel, toys, books, and more
  • Trendy items are made with durable materials

Cons

  • Fairly expensive subscription fee
  • The contents vary significantly, so some months might be more appealing than others

17. Coterie

The Best Toddler Subscription for Extra-Absorbent Diapers

What’s In This Toddler Subscription Box

Coterie’s diaper subscription provides customers with a monthly supply of diapers for sizes NB-06. Its diapers contain safer ingredients and are more effective than standard products found in stores, with respect to their liquid capacity and drying speed.

Coterie diapers are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and recommended, and free of the following chemicals: fragrances, chlorine, alcohol, parabens, dyes, VOCs, lotion, latex, rubber, and heavy metals. Coterie’s design combines super-soft materials with a proprietary wicking system that maximize comfort and limit leaks.

Is This the Right Toddler Subscription Box for You?

Readers say that Coterie diapers fit their babies extremely well, aren’t saggy, and remain leakproof throughout the entire night. In other words, they’re worth it — although your mileage may vary. Look for a deal and try them out; if they’re the right diapers for you, you’ll certainly get your money’s worth.

Pros

  • Diapers remain drier for longer and have 70% more liquid capacity than competitors
  • Partially made from wood pulp from sustainably managed forests

Cons

  • Coterie diapers are more expensive than other brands
  • According to some reviewers, diapers may run small

What Readers Say:

“So soft and pretty happy with absorbency. About to go up a size for better coverage. These feel so much nicer than any other diaper we’ve ever used. A great decision for sure!” - Sarah P.

“If I could give this brand a 10 I would. The quality is unmatched, my little has a sensitive bum and has had maybe one rash. The material is so soft and absorbent. I have not changed her diaper in the middle of the night since I switched to Coterie. I love the coverage of the actual diaper. She’s got thick thighs and a long torso. These diapers are a match made in heaven.” - Melanie

Shipping:

Ships to the United States and Canada.

How to Get The Most Out of Your Toddler Subscription Box Once You’ve Picked

Once you’ve picked out the right box for you, follow our steps to help make sure you make the most of your new subscription.

  1. Customize your subscription if possible. You’ll want to make sure that your toddler enjoys their box, so if a service asks for information on age, reading level, style preference, or anything else, make sure to provide that info — while careful curation goes a long way, many toddler subscription boxes work better when you give them some info to work with.
  2. Watch out for hidden fees. In this list, we’ve provided info about shipping costs and other considerations where possible. However, if you customize your subscription, you might incur other charges: Read the terms and conditions carefully to make sure you know what you’re paying.
  3. Take advantage of discounts. When signing up, use promo codes and links (we’ve provided them to make that easier). If your toddler subscription offers additional discounts — through member perks, for instance, or for buying all of the included items if you’re using a personal stylist service — you might be able to save more.

Factors We Considered When Reviewing These Toddler Subscription Boxes

This list features our fellow subscription fanatics’ top choices, and we can confidently recommend the subscriptions above since we’ve researched and reviewed them all. Factors we considered when reviewing these subscriptions include:

  • Quality and Price - While overall value is subjective, we looked for services that offered a great deal compared to retail pricing. Some of these toddler subscription services deliver products that you won’t find anywhere else, and in those situations, we compared the overall cost of the subscription to other widely available options (for instance, we compared the cost of diaper services to retail prices for major diaper brands).
  • Variety - We’ve included a wide range of toddler subscriptions on this list. Our goal was to provide something for every parent, so whether you’re looking for toys, clothes, or something unique, you’ll probably find it. Remember, if you’ve tried a toddler subscription that isn’t on this list, we want to hear about it! Leave us a comment and we’ll check it out.
  • Customer Service - We look into every brand’s customer service reputation. While no company has perfect reviews, we try to highlight subscriptions with simple order management tools and stellar customer care. If you have a problem with shipping or anything else, you should be able to contact a human representative who can make things right — and if a brand had across-the-board negative reviews, it didn’t make our list.

Hi there, I'm Christen! I've been writing with MSA since 2017. I am all sorts of things: a writer, a mother, an outdoors-lover, a low-maintenance self-carer, and general hungry person.

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in colors and silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

I e done many subscription boxes including book ones.. while some are more expensive the purchasing in the store (ie books) these subscriptions take me out of my norm. They allow me to receive books (and toys) I would have never looked at or for.

Not to mention Dolly Parton’s imaginary library which is absolutely free. So bless Dolly Parton for saving us all this money. I was hoping this would help parents out with affordable pricing like ipsy. All this looks like dollar tree over priced items. In my opinion. I would buy it maybe at one dollar each maybe.

I wanted to try Koala. The forms to fill out were confusing, especially as the gift I was ordering in Idaho; I wanted shipped to Florida. Finally, I ignored some of the verbiage and got it filled out, only to find they did not take Paypal. I won’t give out my credit card anymore, so bummer, I won’t order.

This is one of the worst websites I have ever encountered to order and under stand if the order has been placed or not. Also, my wife could NOT get it to complete so she could enter the CC info so I ended up having to do it. Such a wasted of my time. 3 days of more than45 minutes each time. Fix this site and give a phone number for problems. PLEASE

Subscriptions makes a child excited to check the mail, to have something that is just for them…something that makes them feel important. It’s not about the money, my daughter is 3 and she loves “writing” letters and receiving them.

How fun! I don’t know anyone who would think, especially in this day and age, to correspond through the mail with a child like that! I think that’s wonderful! Sending letters and cards! Oh I wish I knew a little one I could do this with! 🙂

I don’t understand why anyone subscribes to the book clubs, they are so overpriced IMO. Children’s books are cheaper at TJ Maxx, on Amazon, Target and Amazon both regularly have buy 2 get 1 free book offers…if you are in the US and have an Ollie’s, they sell board books for $2. Not to mention buying used.

I don’t even understand why there are so many of that type of sub.

Good tip, Amber, I didn’t know that! I think sometimes people like to sign up for a box whose curation they like and trust, and be surprised by what they are sent. Also for books especially, some folks like to support smaller businesses. I personally am more of a library-goer with my little gal. She can play and bring books home, it’s a 2-in-1 outing. But I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for some kids books next time I can make it to TJ Maxx!
