BabbaBox is a creative and educationally-themed package of fun delivered to your doorstep monthly. Customers may sign up for a monthly or annual subscription and will receive a box of activities to explore a theme through crafts and activities, books, digital downloads and more. Additionally, there is always a surprise gift tucked inside for the parents. Monthly themes have included gratitude; sun, moon and stars; and polar explorers. Our gratitude box was filled with inventive ways to say and show thanks. Children could paint their own plastic serving tray with their handprint and the word "thank you;" paint and decorate a trivet; create thank you cards using a variety of die-cut cards and mail them in the pre-stamped envelope; and create a special gratitude journal showing photos of the things they are thankful for taken with the disposable camera. There is a also a beautifully illustrated book about gratitude and a free download for the Cookie Doodle app. Parents can admire all of their children's work while sipping on the tea included just for them.

So much thought goes into each BabbaBox and it shows. The themes are interesting and the activities are engaging for both parents and children. Opening each box was like a surprise on Christmas morning - you never knew what you were going to find inside and it never disappointed. BabbaCo has done an exceptional job selecting top-quality materials to include in each box, and they've made the $29.99/month subscription (which includes shipping) well worth the price. Not only are the boxes a fantastic way of surprising your own children each month, but they would make a great gift as well.
