What is Kids Crate?
Kids Crate is a New Zealand company, committed to delivering exciting activities to your door. We provide everything your child needs to encourage creativity and learning, through hands on exploration and play.
Each box contains 2-3 activities specifically designed to encourage the next level of development and thinking in your child.
Most importantly we want children to have FUN.
We are excited to be growing the line of core crates in the near future to include children specifically aged 9+
How are Kids Crates designed?
Julie the Founder of Kids Crate, is a Mum and former Primary School teacher with over 14 years’ teaching experience in the classroom.
Using both her extensive knowledge of child development and consulting with other educators and parents, ideas for the crates are tested and adapted, until we‘re happy we’ve got it just right for your child.
Every crate has been ‘Kid’ tested, to check it meets our high levels of engagement, play and creativity.
What crate should I choose?
We currently have 2 core crates to choose from.
The Fantail crate has been developed for 3-4 year olds. Pre-schoolers often need to practice their fine motor skills, and build their knowledge of the world around them. The Fantail activities are selected to encourage their curiosity of the world, and to get children laughing and playing!
The Whio crate for , encourages children to be creative in their thinking and imaginative in their play, through a selection of Art, Science and technology based activities.
The activities in each crate have been carefully developed with the children’s knowledge and fine and large motor skill level in mind. You can choose the crate which best fits your child, and swap to another when needed.
When will we receive our crate?
We aim to have your first order couriered to your door within the week. Subsequent deliveries are sent to your child at the beginning of each month.
Can I pick my theme?
We work hard at Kids Crate to offer a wide range of themes and activities that are suitable for both boys and girls.
Because it’s exciting for your child to have the surprise of opening up a new theme each month, we do not offer the option to select themes.
If you have any suggestions for themes or activities you would like to see, our contact team would love you to email them through.
