If you haven’t heard, Cricket Crate is the newest member of the Kiwi Crate family and is designed especially for babies age 0-36 months. Each box will include information, inspiration, and products that support your child’s healthy development and lifelong learning. Every month, you’ll receive research-backed content about your child’s development, along with creative ways to engage and bond with your child, quality toys and age-appropriate board books.

Subscriptions are $60 for 3 months and shipping within the US is free. — For a limited time, you can get 30% off your first month with coupon code “SHARE30” (this brings the 3-month subscription down to $56)!
Let’s see what’s in the Cricket Crate Newborn Pack (Box #3)!
As always, everything shipped in a brown & turquoise Cricket Crate box.
A peek inside!
Each Cricket Crate box includes a booklet/magazine that features age-targeted information on your child’s development, expert advice, at-home activities, product info, and more. The theme for this month’s box was “Faces & Emotions” and the booklet included engaging games to play with your baby, notes on the importance of tummy time, info on the items in this month’s box, and more.
I included a zillion photos of this exclusive tummy time mirror because it’s just that cute. 😉 It features a colorful fruit theme with bespectacled bananas, chillin’ cherries, a gathering of grapes, and more. Some of the fruits are covered with peek-a-boo flaps for extra playtime fun and all of them depict various emotions — happy, sad, surprised, etc. There’s also a mirrored panel and velcro ties to attach it to a crib or hang it in the car so it can be seen from baby’s car seat.
And here’s a look at all of the panels together, front and back:
I love that angry blueberry up there. haha Poor guy.
My girls can’t get enough of the adorable Cricket Crate “Cricket” mascot and have slept the plush version every night since getting the first box (thankfully we got 2 of ’em!). All of the newborn boxes have included a themed board book starring our little green friend. This one took a look at all of her different feelings and emotions as she loses and is eventually reunited with her hat. The last two pages have a “Hide & Seek” game that your child can play with you now, and alone when they’re older.
This was the last box in the 3-month Newborn Cricket Crate subscription and I’m a little sad to see it end. I’ll miss seeing that sweet little cricket every month! — In the future they’ll also be offering subscriptions for 4-36 month olds, but they haven’t rolled them out yet (you can sign up to be notified on their site when it goes live.) 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can get 30% off your first month with coupon code “SHARE30” (this brings the 3-month subscription down to $56)!
