Consumer Critique: HOOT for Kids

I recently had the chance to review a subscription box from HOOT for Kids. This subscription box offers developmentally-appropriate toys for kids up to age six.

Each box is guaranteed to have at least three toys, and you can upgrade to get one more for $5. You can also buy add-ons like adorable socks and hats, or cute zipper pulls.

The sign-up process is easy, and boxes ship around the 1st or 15th of each month - I got mine within just a couple of weeks. The box came with several high-quality toys including cute ice cream erasers and a puzzle that came in an ice cream truck. It also came with a card encouraging ways to play and learn at the same time.

Subscribers have the option to specify more about their child, classifying their skills and developmental abilities, such as fine and gross motor skills. Boxes can be boy, girl, or neutral, and are personalized to fit the specific abilities of the child - so children receive toys that they can actually use based on what they can do.

I was happy with the quality of toys in the box. At $30-$35 per box (depending on subscription length) I thought the value for the quality of toy was sound. If you're a parent who's overwhelmed by choosing toys, or you want to give a gift for a child that keeps on giving, this is a good option!
