Our family are big fans of KiwiCo – a company that sends out monthly crates with activities for kids. See my post about them here.
Recently, I was contemplating getting a subscription for their ‘Panda Crate’ for babies and toddlers when I came across an Irish company offering a similar service. In a bid to support local I decided to sign up to The Peeka Company and check them out! (www.thepeekacompany.ie)
The Peeka Company are based in Co. Meath. You sign up on their website (see address above) and, every 3 months, they will send you a box filled with educational toys and activities for your baby/toddler and you to do. It is €50 every 3 months, plus the cost of shipping the box to you (€8.50). It is pricey enough but my first box arrived this week and I was delighted with the contents!
Firstly, there was a board book with a finger puppet. The book is by well known author Lucy Cousins and is a lovely story about a little fish. Next, there were two toys and a maraca, all beautifully made and great quality. Very sturdy looking and durable. There was also a beautiful teether and, finally, a box of sensory cards for babies from Priya and Peanut (www.priyaandpeanut.com). A little booklet, also included in the box, gave some ideas for games and activities you can do with your baby to help their development as well. Finally, a letter from the company included a link to the members area of the website where there are more resources – I have yet to log in but will soon and will update the blog then.
The boxes ship on the 20th of the month but this month there was a delay with one of the items and so the box was a couple of days late being posted out. However, the company notified me by email about the delay – excellent customer service! I was also pretty pleased with the way the box was packaged -the box itself is cardboard but there was no plastic whatsoever used inside the box which is wonderful! The only downside was that the box came covered in a layer of plastic – perhaps this is for protection from the elements but it would be fantastic to see that layer of plastic gone!
Overall, I am thrilled with the contents of the box and will enjoy exploring them with C over the coming weeks.
