Presents / 1 December, 2020 / Ellie Thompson
Are you fed up with buying children stuff that they’ll play with for five minutes, only to end up in landfill not long after? We hear you. If you’re looking to give your children a joyful present that will also keep your conscience clear this year, we recommend Toy Box Club.
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, uncle, or godmother, we think a Toy Box Club subscription will make the perfect gift for pre-school children.
Toy Box Club is an award-winning monthly subscription service run by mums for kids aged 0-4 years old.
For as little as £35 a month, they deliver a box of personally curated toys, books, and puzzles straight to your door. After the month’s up, they’ll collect and swap them for a different set.
Gender-neutral, fun, and educational toys are sent and collected in 100% recyclable boxes, and everything arrives in great condition, having been through a rigorous cleaning process using non-toxic and bio-degradable Ecover cleaning products.
It can be difficult to know which toys will offer the best play value for the right ages, but with Toy Box Club, you can ensure your little ones are getting their hands on the best and most suitable toys as they grow.
Boxes are expertly put together to give pre-school children a wide variety of the best age-appropriate, toys, books and puzzles. What’s more, these guys use only use the best brands out there, including Le Toy Van, Djeco, Hape, Galt, Melissa and Doug and VTech.
Each monthly Toy Box Club delivery has a retail value of £90 and contains between seven and eight toys, books and puzzles, depending on their value and size.
A typical box for a 21-month-old would include:
If you’re thinking about how much space Toy Box Club might save you at home, you’re not wrong. Think clutter-free lounges free of toys thrown around the room just for the sake of it… You know the ones, those unused and unloved toys that get emptied out just to make a mess. The ones you can’t quite bear to ditch yet. We know it can be difficult to part with toys, (just ask the Velveteen Rabbit!) but this is one dilemma you won’t need to face with a toy subscription service.
And if your child does take a shine to a certain toy in particular, don’t panic! Drop the girls at Toy Box Club an email and arrange to buy it from them.
In the current climate of environmental awareness and lockdown mindfulness, we think a subscription to the Toy Box Club would make a thoughtful and life-enhancing present this Christmas. There’s a two-month minimum subscription period after which you can cancel your membership at any time. You can even pause it if you go on holiday!
“We absolutely love the monthly toy boxes. We try to live quite a minimalist existence and so it’s been great that the boys can have new toys every month, without us building up clutter. It’s also reassuring to know that the toys get recycled and used across many homes and families over the years, which makes us feel a lot less guilty when some of them are plastic. I’d highly recommend Toy Box Club” Mrs. H Baker
