What can I expect in each box?
Eight - Nine items. Each box contains age-appropriate, gender neutral, fun, educational and imaginative toys. Depending on the child’s age, the toys will range from puzzles, beautiful wooden toys to fun electronic ones. Dressing up, musical instruments, story books, noisy books, pull alongs and pop ups. We only use the best brands, which include Le Toy Van, Djeco, Tender Leaf, Hape and Melissa and Doug.
Retail value: £150.00 - £250.00
Which ages do you cater for?
Pre-school children. 0-5 years old. For our holiday and wedding boxes we cater for up to 12 years old.
How do you clean the toys?
Each and every toy is cleaned methodically using DELPHIS ECO products. Tests demonstrate that 99 per cent of all germs are killed by our cleaning techniques, which makes our toys cleaner than those that you own already.
What happens if my child wants to keep one of the toys?
No problem, we completely understand that children sometimes get attached to a particular toy. You can keep a toy for an extra month or two.
What happens if one of the toys gets broken or lost?
We are totally aware that there will be general wear and tear. Toys can get lost too. Don't worry, we have spares, and toys do often get found eventually. If a toy is really broken or lost forever, we can invoice you for a fair replacement value.
Why are Toy Box Club toys gender neutral?
It seems to us that it’s all too easy to foist lazy stereotypes on our children. Boys are encouraged to play with construction toys that hone their spacial skills or ones that encourage action and adventure, whilst the toys labelled for girls are often geared towards domestic tasks and physical appearance.
Child psychologists have shown that the toys children play with develop certain skills and reinforce certain interests, which could influence future choices.
