FAQS

Do you need to buy The Co-Op Box and The Preschool Playbook together?

No. Both are nice to have, especially if you’ve got active kids. But they are two separate products that do not rely on each other. While they offer the same style of activities, they differ in the number of activities and the level of DIY you have to do.

The Co-Op Box has 21+ activities and comes with all the materials you need prepped and ready for you. You’ll just need your own scissors, glue, and markers. The Preschool Playbook, on the other hand, is filled with 300+ activities, which require you to provide all of the materials and do the prep work.

What age range is this for?

The Co-Op Box is perfect for kids between the ages of 3 and 5.

When will the subscription be sent out?

All pre-ordered subscriptions will be sent on the first day of each quarter (January, April, July, and October). If you order after pre-orders are sent, your package will be shipped the next business day.

How often will the subscription renew? 

Your subscription will renew on the 15th before the new quarter (March, June, September, and December).
