Hoot for Kids - Subscription Box Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Subscription boxes are all the rage right now.  People seem to love the idea of receiving themed boxes in the mail every month.  One such company is HOOT for Kids, a company that caters to kids.  They send subscription boxes filled with toys that are hand-picked based on your child's age and developmental learning needs. HOOT for Kids (which stands for Hands on Occupational Therapy) , was developed by a team of pediatric occupational therapists with the belief that toys foster growth.  The subscription boxes are available for newborns to kids up to six years of age.

Pop Out Tree

Each month the box received by Hoot for Kids includes an activity card with suggested fun activities and tips for play.  Users also have access to blogs and free activity sheets.  A single HOOT for Kids treasure box is $34.99 and can be shipped or gifted.  Additional add-ons can be purchased with each box.  For instance subscribers can select books, plush animals, and other items to add on to their subscription box for an additional price.

After your purchase you will be given the option of completing a questionnaire. The optional answers will help with the selection of toys and activities based upon your child's age and developmental stage. You may complete or update your questionnaire at any time by logging into your account,

Princess Carriage

There is no commitment required when you sign up for HOOT for Kids, and you don't have to pick a plan that automatically renews.  I actually like it that way because I want to be in complete control of when I purchase a subscription box and what months I want to get one.  

I chose to customize a HOOT for Kids treasure box for my six year old niece, Ayala.  The package arrived in a white postal box but inside was a purple HOOT for Kids treasure box filled with girl toys.  

Maggie's Closet

Inside Ayala's Treasure Box was:

Pop Out Tree - This woodland scene is created by popping out the pieces of a tree and outdoor creatures.  Once all the pieces have been popped out and put together, your child has a cute outdoor scene.

Princess Carriage - Made by Melissa & Doug, this set allows your child to create their own royal carriage.  Included with the kit are wheels, axles, stickers, paint, paint brush, and glue.  After putting the set together, your child can play with the carriage.  The wheels actually turn.

Maggie's Closet - This small wooden doll comes with clothing and accessories.  

Sitting outside on the back porch with Ayala one day, we spent quite some time playing with all three toy sets.  I was very pleased with the products chosen for Ayala's box.  The toys included were of good quality, and she was thrilled with what she received.
