Subscription Boxes :: A Comprehensive List {Featuring Little Pnuts}

Subscription boxes are officially all the rage. There are options for men, women and children. This post focuses on subscription box options for kids because if you’re anything like me then you are always looking for ways to keep the toys in your house fresh and engaging. A subscription box issubscription-boxes the perfect way to do that, and I was recently sent a free box from Little Pnuts so I could see what the hype is all about!

Little Pnuts describes their toys, often sourced in Europe, as “Attractive toys that would enhance every sensorial perspective, toys that would provide challenge, toys that would engage while providing a sense of accomplishment…” I found that this was absolutely true. The first thing that I noticed when I opened the box was that the toys were simple, beautiful, and high quality. Our box, the version curated for 4-6 year olds, came with 4 toys. The first was a matching card game meant for multiple players. While the game was too advanced for my 4 year old (for ages 4-7), she enjoyed matching the cards and the illustrations were beautiful and I was happy to receive a toy that would challenge her. The next game was a silly memory game in which the players had to make animal noises so Farmer Bert could find them. This led to lots of giggling. But our two favorites were the last two. Clever Bear Learns to count is actually a collection of 4 different counting games that can be played multiple ways using the same pieces. It’s designed for ages 4-8, so some of the games were still advanced for my preschooler. But she LOVED the “Duel of the Clever Bears.” This game uses a counting threader with beads and a die. It’s described as a “tug of war of numbers” and is an adorable counting game. The last game, my personal favorite, is “My Magnetibook Alphabet” The box pops open to form a magnetic board with tiles showing words/pictures and letter tiles. We put the cupcake tile on the board, and Etta Mae had so much fun finding all of the letters to spell cupcake! This is the perfect game for kids who are getting familiar with letters and spelling, and I know we’ll use it for years to come.

While a couple of the games are too advanced for us to use today, I’m confident that will get plenty of play as Etta Mae gets older. I highly recommend the Little Pnuts boxes if you’re looking for simple but useful toys and games. They offer quarterly boxes for ages: Infant 0-12 months, Toddler 1-3 years, and Preschool 3-6 years that will prove to be an excellent investment.

Ashley S
Ashley grew up in Joplin, Missouri and attended the University of Arkansas where she earned a degree in Finance and Insurance. She met her husband, Jason, in Fayetteville and they have one daughter, Etta Mae. They moved to Baton Rouge in 2013 for Jason's job with the LSU Tigers. Ashley is an extroverted introvert who loves Ted Talks, following politics on Twitter, and figuring out how to get the best deals on everything without paying shipping. If it were up to her, she would get paid to read books and take every college class so that she could learn everything about everything, but instead she pays the bills by working in recruiting for a multinational tech company. Ashley is blessed to have a daughter who is at least as stubborn as she is and a husband who is laid back enough to put up with both of them.
