A subscription box is a recurring delivery of selected products meant to provide the subscriber with a different experience each time!
There are various types of subscription boxes for children, ranging from experiential boxes (like science experiments or sensory play) to monthly book drops. Subscription boxes are great for giving the children a surprise each month, and to keep them entertained at home!
Here's a round-up of some subscription boxes that we found that will keep the children entertained!
