Are you a time-strapped parent who finds it challenging to come up with educational activities to keep your child engaged? Signing up for a subscription box service for your child could help. Every month, a box filled with hands-on learning and creative activities is delivered to your doorstep.
As each box has a different theme, your child could be making a lava lamp one month or playing with instant snow the next – all in the comfort of home.
Plus, your child is likely to be thrilled to receive a package in the mail every month.
Recognising the importance of parent-child bonding and inculcating in children the love of learning, a growing number of Singaporeans have come up with subscription box services for children.
Previously, apart from a handful of local providers, parents usually had to subscribe to overseas services and get the boxes shipped here. In the last two years, at least three new local providers have emerged: Spurbox in 2015, Thinkasaur in June last year and EllieFun Box in April this year.
Parents can buy single boxes priced between $25 and $48, or opt for a subscription plan of up to 12 months.
