It’s no secret I’m a fan of subscription boxes and I also love online shopping. I definitely do a whole lot more of my shopping online than I used to – I love the ease of it and I just love parcels arriving on my doorstep! I have so much fun shopping for Oliver (probably more so than for myself!) – there is just so much cute stuff to buy for these littles 🙂 Any other mom’s find they spend far more time browsing and buying for their kids than themselves??
I’ve ordered a couple subscription boxes for myself before and was super excited when I came across Poppet Post, a beautiful children’s subscription box, filled with a combination of toys, books and craft activities tailored to your child’s developmental needs. Every two months there is a different themed box packed with gorgeous goodies from cars, to bugs to bath time to encourage progress through play. Oliver received his first box when he was four months old and we have now received three in total. Each box has loads of ideas and activities of things to do together, making it the perfect home toolkit. In each box you’ll also find information on how to use each product and what they trying to encourage as well as a milestone card of what to expect as your little poppet grows. There are also some great ideas for activities using simple household items , clever tips and even a few recipes.
On signing up, you fill in your child’s age and gender so that an exciting box can be put together to suit your little one’s developmental stage. Poppet Post boxes are suitable for children from ages 0 – 5 and items are selected according to their specific developmental needs.
What’s in the box?
Here’s a peak at what was in our latest box, “Explore the Outdoors”. Oliver was 10 months yesterday and loves all of the goodies in this box.
Win-Fun Musical Rattle: This is probably Oliver’s favourite toy so far! The little button makes different sounds and plays a few little tunes, providing loads of entertainment!
Garden Tools: We can’t wait for the temperatures to warm up a bit and get messy outside! The cutest little rake and sieve, perfect for little hands to dig and scoop.
Bee Board Book: Such a cute little story about a little bee and other garden bugs. I love board books and not only are they easy for little hands to hold but they are also a lot more durable than soft cover books!
Bug Castanet: Another real winner for Oliver – the more noise he can make the better! But it’s actually a great toy for coordination skills as well as strengthening their hand and wrist muscles.
How does it work?
Poppet Post work on a subscription model and deliver to your door bi-monthly for R349. It also makes a great gift and you can order a once-off box for R200 as well as holiday and travel boxes. They also have a gorgeous baby shower box which makes a lovely gift for any mom-to-be (I’ve sent this to a colleague of me and it really had some beautiful goodies in it).
Boxes available are as follows:
0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, 3-5 years.
What I love about the Poppet Post boxes is that they come with a range of good toys that are well thought out and activities not only to entertain baby but also help work on developmental milestones, at a fraction of the cost. Toys have become so expensive and they don’t often last very long so in my opinion, a Poppet Post box is educational, practical and easy on your pocket.

Happy Monday friends!
