Koala Crate July 2015 Review

Koala Crate July 2015 Review

Koala Crate is a subscription for 3-4 year olds.  Boxes are $19.95 and filled with a fun magazine and crafts.  Koala Crate has a partnership with Highlights magazine, so there are fun articles and activities included in the box from Highlights.  Be sure to read to the end, as I have some great coupons and a 3 month giveaway.


Each Koala Crate is shipped by USPS and comes in a yellow crate box.


First Look


Imagine magazine is a partnership with Highlights magazine.  Inside there are poems, games, and more.


There is one instruction booklet to cover all three crafts.


There is a sheet that tells you what skills your child will learn with each activity, how messy it is and how much parent involvement is needed.


Easy Play Dough: Your child mixes a few ingredients together to make their own play dough.  This activity rated high on the messiness scale and high on parental involvement.


All the ingredients were included, even a silicone placemat.

Mixing the ingredients was super easy, your child just pours everything together into the bowl.

Tyler had fun stirring everything together.  I had to help mix all the ingredients, because it got a bit sticky, but the play dough came together nicely.

The finished dough smelled great and was fun to play with.  Tyler loves play dough and will play with it longer than any other toy.


Number Activity Mats: Once the dough is done, there were several activity mats to use with the dough.  There were mats to work on counting, measuring, making funny faces, and making a  snack.  This activity rated medium on the messiness scale and medium on parental involvement.


There were four mats and two tools to use with the dough.  You can put the placemat on the paper mats, so the mat won’t get messed up.

T had a great time rolling out the dough on his mat.

He worked on the number mat first.  This was great at working his fine motor skills.

The next mat was two people, so T made one to look like daddy.

This is his finished “daddy” picture.


Number Games: A set of dominoes and two dice were included in the box.  This activity rated low on the messiness scale and medium on parental involvement.


You child can use these dominoes to play traditional dominoes, or your child can roll the dice and match the card to the number on the dice.  T and I played the matching game with dice and had fun.


Final Thought:  I think this was my 3 year old’s favorite box, he loves play dough, so that was the highlight of this box.  Koala Crate is a great box for little kids.  The projects are easy got my son to do and I like how each activity builds on each other.  If you want to try Koala Crate, click here and use the code SHARE10 or GOODSHOPGIFT to save $10.00 on your first month.  This will work on Tinker Crate, Kiwi Crate and Doodle Crate too.  Kiwi Crate has also given me a 3 month subscription to give away.  Just enter below and enter to win a 3 month subscription to Kiwi Crate, Koala Crate, Tinker Crate or Doodle Crate.  The winner will get to choose which box they want to receive!

    I would pick Tinker Crate because it would be the best fit for both my boys. The thing that I love about Kiwi Crates is that each of the activities in the crate tell you which skill your child is working on!

    I would pick Doodle Crate! I love that the Kiwi Crate line makes learning fun. I like that the boxes are centered around a theme. Finally, I like that it tells you what skills each project focuses on!
