Austin Lloyd is a subscription box for children newborn through age 3. They just announced they will make boxes through a child’s 3rd year! Each month, your child gets 4-5 educational toys and at least 1 book. The toys are bpa and phthalate free and they are unique, high end toys, that you will not find at most stores. You will never get toys with batteries. The toys are also chosen to improve fine motor and cognitive skills. Each box is designed for the play level of the child. Austin Lloyd has a breakdown of child development on their website. You choose the play level that fits best for you child. My youngest gets Austin Lloyd because I love the unique toys in the boxes. As my children have gotten older, I have started to choose more unique and wooden toys for my kids.
The box is $49.99 a month, but you can choose to go every other month too. Austin Lloyd also has a donation feature. Once you are done with the toys, and are ready to get rid of them, Austin Lloyd will send you a prepaid shipping label. You mail the toys back, and they will donate them to their partnering charities.
This month, the theme was Air and Space. The play level is for 2-3 years. Austin Lloyd says ” Toddlers can be demanding and unrelenting. Doorknob licking and barking like a dog ar commonplace. But these freaky behaviors do pass. The vast majority of strange toddler behaviors are short lived phases, says Healthy Wittenburg, PsyD, psychological and author.”

Austin Lloyd has the cutest boxes. Austin Lloyd would be a great gift for someone, as their boxes are packed so cute.
First Look: Again I love the attention to detail. Each box has a sticker with your child’s name. There is also an envelope with information cards inside.
Austin Lloyd always included a stack of information cards about all the products in the box.
Kid O Mini Airplane $6.00: This plastic plane is so cute. The wheels role and the plastic is very nice and thick. This would be very sturdy for my rough and tumble boy.
Sevi Shuttle with Fuel Truck $32.46 This is a really neat space set. You can remove the rockets from the truck and add it to the space shuttle. T is really going to love this.
Wonderworld Build a Helicopter $20.99 This is a cute wooden helicopter and there is only four wooden pieces, so it’s easy to put together.
Rocket to the Moon by Learryn Korda $8.99: This is a hardback book and the pages are nice and thick. They seem pretty tear resistance. The graphics have a really cool retro feel.
Here is an inside look at the book.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $74.39 and that is using the discounted websites prices. This box has some cute stuff. I really loved everything in the box. T doesn’t have any toys like these. T loves planes, cars and all types of transportation. I love the toys and value Austin Lloyd includes in their boxes. I also like that you can subscribe every other month. I personally subscribe for T and save toys back for Christmas.
