The Preschool Box Review
Summary & How it Works
Created by an early education teacher who now has 3 young children, the Preschool Box is geared toward 3 and 4 year olds who may be getting ready to go to Preschool or Kindergarten. The monthly box comes complete with a focus on teaching your child beginning phonics skills, counting, shapes, colors, and writing with different hands-on activities and games. Also included, a Parent Guide to help you teach your child, fun stickers and a book, crafts, learning activities and games!
For parents who may not have any background working with children or who may just be incredibly busy but still desire to spend time doing meaningful educational activities with their kids, The Preschool Box can be a great solution. The Parent brochure seems to have detailed instructions for each activity and some colored photos of the finished craft products. For those who may have more time, or have a creative streak, there are likely additional activities that can be created with all of the little pieces in the kit.
We found The Preschool Box subscription on the CrateJoy website which hosts several subscription box programs.
Because it is not hosted on its own website, the details on The Preschool Box seem to be a bit lacking. There are some photos of the contents that can be expected but any descriptions of how the learning boxes progress each month or themes that may be included aren’t found. The most detailed description of a box was shown on the unboxing video done by a YouTuber and reposted onto the CrateJoy site on The Preschool Box page.
Over the past year, The Preschool Box has been featured in several peer blogs within the CrateJoy Site. Under titles such as, “18 Essential Activities to Prepare Your Child for Preschool”, “Pencils Down! 15 Subscription Boxes For Back to School”, and “12 Best Subscription Boxes for Toddlers (Ages 1-4)”.
Of the 28 reviews we read on the site, the majority seemed to be very pleased with their subscription purchase, giving the site 93% in 5 star reviews.

What People Are Saying About The Preschool Box
“Great box full of ideas and materials! Really nice assortment of activities! The newly updated guidebook is awesome and also provides activities. I love the manipulatives which are included so I don’t need to find everything. I can’t wait for my next box!”-Kimberly M.
“We’ve gotten the Preschool Box for a couple of months now and my daughter is in love! She’s four and struggles with a significant speech delay so we try to get in as many educational activities as we can. The Preschool box comes already prepared with high quality materials and engaging activities that we look forward to every month. The parent pamphlet makes it super easy to get everything ready so I don’t have to spend a lot of time on prep. LOVE IT!”-Melanie C.
“The amount of items and quality of the items in this box cannot be beat. I am a seasoned subscription box recipient with several different ones arriving each month and this one is by far the most professional put together box out there. This box would still be an amazing value at double the cost!! The activities are straight forward for both kiddies and adults, engaging, support various different learning styles and no doubt will provide hours of fun even after the “lessons” are complete. My kids won’t even realize they are learning!! Thank you Preschool Box for giving me the tools and confidence I need to teach my girls.”-Courtney K.
