We’ve tried a lot of subscription boxes as we’ve tried to move away from toys and move towards experiences and other fun gifts.

Thankfully our families have both jumped on board (despite some initial reluctance) and have embraced the non-toy focus. Even though we’ve moved to the Netherlands, we can still get some of these amazing subscription boxes!

I’ve found they are a great way to help kids be introduced to new cultures, new foods, and become better aware of the world around them. They are fun for kids AND educational!

  1. We did a year of Little Passports for my son and he loved it. Now we’re getting their science version. Getting fun mail is always the best! Now I’m half tempted to get the snacks box.

    1. Glad to hear someone else enjoyed the Little Passports! Getting mail every month is half the fun for the kids which is a great gift that keeps on giving. The snack boxes are so much fun even the smallest box comes with a lot of snacks to try.
