A BabbaBox subscription from BabbaCo is truly the gift that keeps on giving… and its educational to boot! These monthly boxes, each based around a particular theme, contains 2-3 creative, useful, reusable and gift-able projects, an engaging activity, a relevant book, and a curated selection of pre-paid, interactive downloads. One week prior to delivery, parents receive a video email on what to expect. Developed for 3-6 year olds by creator Jessica Kim and a panel of PhD’s, PT’s, pre-school educators, nannies, parents, and topic experts, the BabbaBox is sure to brighten not only a child’s holiday season but his entire year as well.
