When you’re a kid, there’s nothing like receiving some mail, or a package. Enter kid subscription boxes. These fun-in-a-box subscriptions cover every type of interest, for every kind of kid. From the kid who’s totally into science and robots, to the kid who would love to make their own candles.
There are a few things to sort out and some fine-print details to take into consideration before signing up or gifting. First, check the shipping price. While some prices include the shipping cost, others will tack it on after the monthly fee. Watch out for auto-renew. For some, when the time is up- the time is up. Others will automatically charge you for a new subscription when the current one runs out. Also, prices will vary depending on your commitment. A year is typically less expensive per month, but will cost more in the long run. Lastly, if you don’t want to commit to 3, 6 or 12 months, many will offer a one time option.
