Koala Crate is a fun subscription box from the same company who runs Kiwi Crate. While Kiwi Crate is for kids ages 4 through 8, Koala Crate is geared towards younger tots ages 3 to 4.
Every month, Koala Crate sends your little one a box packed full of fun and education activities. Each crate will be based around a different theme and include a variety of art supplies, crafts, learning materials, and more. You’ll also receive a parent’s guide to help them complete each project. Every crate comes with a copy of “Imagine!” magazine (created in partnership with Highlights for Children) full of stories, games, and other engaging content for your preschooler.
Koala Crate subscriptions are $19.95/month (shipping included), or less with 6- and 12-month commitments. Be sure to look for the coupon code at the end of this post!
Let’s see what’s inside my February Koala Crate!
The box itself is designed to look like a real wooden crate. Cute.
First look: Colors!
The theme for this month’s crate is colors. This is the instruction booklet that lists all of the projects, the materials needed for each one, instructions, play ideas, and more.
The colors crate consists of 3 different activities, as listed on the page above.
Color Scavenger Hunt:
Color Scavenger Hunt (Uses Color Cube & Color Sheets) – This is a simple game that can be played again and again. First, spread out the color sheets on a flat surface. Next, have your child roll the color cube (shown above). Then have them find an object in the room that matches the color that they rolled and place it on the corresponding color sheet. Easy peasy!
Watercolor Banner (Uses Paper Banners, Cotton Cord, Watercolors, & Crayons) – Create a colorful banner with the materials included. First, have your kiddo use the crayons to decorate the paper banner. Next, have them paint over it using the watercolor set. Have them mix the colors and paint them however they wish. Once the paint dries, use the cotton cord to hang it up!
A coloring pad is also included for more painting fun. Each page features a different solid image, or circles to mix two different colors.
Color Explorations (Uses Color Sheets) – These “mini activities” involve using the color sheets (shown earlier) to explore different color combinations. Your child can put two of them together to see what color they make… Or look through one of the sheets to see how different the room looks in that color.
Imagine! Magazine – I love that they partnered with Highlights to create this magazine. It’s super kid-friendly and packed with colorful pages of stories, mazes, songs, games, and more.
I’m really impressed with my first Koala Crate. The activities are perfect for 3 & 4 year olds and the theme was very age-appropriate as well. Definitely a great box for little ones.

I recently signed my little one (who turned 3 at the end of January) up for 3 months of this! Which this box should be our first one.. I cant wait to see how she enjoys it!
I received this exact same koala crate this month too. But some other reviewers received the feelings one. I think I would’ve rather had that one instead. We haven’t done all the activities yet. And despite my disappointment in the theme they do put together a good box.
Yeah, I think they start with the colors box when you sign up. Since this was my first review, I’m guessing that’s why I received this one and not the feelings crate. Either one was fine with me. 🙂
