And a variety of finding activities and other games.

My baby turned 4 in December – this was especially timely!

He loved matching the oval texture pieces to the animals and the mittens! My husband said that they played the safari search game for hours. And then he got my daughter involved after school!

I have noticed that every Koala Crate has a “keep” item that you’ll want to save for really extended use. This month’s was an animals mix and match game. The cards were super sturdy and thick, and he loved playing them. I love that this is a low-key box – it’s easy to complete the activities, they provide tons of play time, but they are open-ended enough that you can sort of make them your own, or do whatever the box says, or whatever you’d enjoy! The January 2015 Koala Crate Box is Koala Music & Rhythm, but new subscriptions are likely to start with the colors box!
