Spark Box Toys – The Perfect Toy for Your Child

When I get a package delivered, I get so excited. Even if I’m the one that ordered it, I feel like it’s a present because I get to open the box and ooo and ahh.

I recently received a shipment from SparkBoxToys. My 15 month old grandson was here and he knows most things that come are for him. He doesn’t get too excited but he likes to look in the boxes, pick everything up, check it out, and toss it aside to move on to something else.

When he looked in the box and started pulling everything out, he was getting very excited. He handed everything to his Poppy and stood semi-patiently waiting for the toy to be removed from its package. He played with every one of them and when he came the next day, those were the first he pulled out.

I’m a spoiler and I will pay top dollar if it’s for my prince but that doesn’t mean I don’t look for deals. gives you high quality learning toys selected by experts and personalized for your child’s development. When you are done, simply send them back for more.

  • The average SparkBox is valued at over $120, but you pay only selected membership fee

  • Once you fulfill the 2-month commitment, you may cancel at anytime


Cleaning & Safety 

  • They take cleaning and safety very seriously!

  • They’ve consulted with teachers, principals and doctors to develop a 5-step cleaning process that far surpasses EPA and school standards.


Why Try Spark Box?

You spend a boat load of money on toys your child(ren) play with for a few weeks, then gets tossed in the toy box along with last month’s toys. Your child will be getting a box of at least 4 new toys every month. If you see your child really loves the toy, then you can go purchase it already knowing they’ll get use out of it. This is a great way to save money AND reduce clutter from tossed-aside toys. The best part is your child will be waiting semi-patiently for that package to arrive, knowing that it’s for them.

Even more impressive is the fact that Spark Box curriculum is custom-designed by experts for every stage of a child’s development – starting at 6 months and up to 4 years. You know that the toys coming to your house are not only the best but totally developmentally appropriate for your child.

    Wow! That is a great idea! My kids change so quickly that I know how valuable a service like this would be. The best part is that I wouldn’t have to guess on the next item to challenge them. Something new would already be on its way!

  2. says

    This is a fantastic idea! I have a very busy 14 month old who gets bored of his toys easily … this would keep him with something new and different to try, and keep pace with his age too! Love it.


  3. says

    Love this idea! I don’t know if our five year old will use them, but we always have our granddaughter here and she is 20 months old. Sounds great for us to have a box just for her! Thanks for the give-away!

    The toy collection at our house keeps exploding. I love this idea since I already try to rotate toys. Plus, my 2 year old would be delighted with opening a box of surprises.

  5. kathy says

    Love this idea. Sounds like they research and match the toy to your childmeans less time shopping for appropriate toys~

  6. Vickie Couturier says

    Ive got 8 grandchildren ranging from 3months to l2 yrs,so im always looking for help getting age appropriate toys for them

  7. Kristy Thiel says

    what a great contest! I’m so tired of buying toys I think my daughter will love only to have her be tired of them a week later. This would really help!

  8. April Phinazee says

    I had heard that companies like this were popping up but hadn’t checked out any yet. This is such a neat concept. I have a 15 year old and a 10 month old baby and I know from experience that money is often wasted on toys. Either they don’t like them or it’s not age appropriate or they’re just too darn noisy! Plus, when I think of all the things I bought for my son that I’m now going to buy all over again…ugh! I will check out Sparkbox Toys for this reason alone.

  9. Debbie Kennedy says

    This would certainly be a money saver and would reduce sooooooo much toy clutter. What a brilliant idea! I have too much toy ‘stuff’ around the house that never gets used. I would love to win this!

    i am a mimimalist and i just want to stay with the basics but with a 1 year old i understand that toys will help him in his devt so this will be perfect for me

  11. Angela LaHaye says

    Having little experience with kids and a less-than-ideal (to put it mildly) I have no idea how to play and am learning myself. It would be wonderful to receive age-appropriate toys for my little girl so I can have some idea of what she needs to help her develop. It would be a little bit of light in the darkness for our family.

  12. ACMommy3 says

    This sounds like a great way to try out toys that I’ve been wondering about/researching about! You know, to see if a toy is loved by your child or not, regardless of reviews. :-) creedamy [at] yahoo[dot] com

    What a great concept! I would love to win this. It’s such a great concept to have a professional picking out age appropriate toys! Plus it will be fun to get packages in the mail! I have a 2 year old :)

  14. rachel0 says

    It would be so helpful to know whether something age appropriate–i never know whether he doesn’t “get” the toy or just doesn’t like it!

  15. Ash says

    This is a great giveaway. I could use the toys to help with potty training. One week of no accident = toy from box.

    Awesome giveaway.

    I love this! I always have a hard time choosing the right toys for my son’s age and that he will get the most stimulation and learning out of, while still being interested in playing with them. He’s got a whole box full of toys he’s bored with already, and this seems like such a great way to provide him with new toys often without the cost of buying them, or the waste of letting them sit when he’s done with them.

  17. says

    This would provide my daughter with toys that would not only be age appropriate, but educational. There are so many toys out there that say they’re for her age, but sometimes I wonder if maybe they should truly be geared towards older children.

    This would be great to give to my sister who is expecting and has two other young children.


  19. Allison says

    I love that they personlize the box to meet your child’s unique needs and allow you to try toys you may have never thought of. Thank you for the chance to try them out!

  20. Leah Shumack says

    I love this idea! Makes it so much easier to give my daughter something new wihout having to buy something new!

  21. latanya says

    I love this concept. My son seems to lose interest in his toys very quickly, so changing toys every month would be very beneficial to our family.

  22. Wendy Rozema says

    WOW! what a great company – I love the idea of getting “New” toys every so often! that would be great for our household!

  23. Jessica Dawson says

    Spark Box Toys would help me pick out toys for my little boy who is always up for a challenge. I am having to come up with new ideas for a boy who can master most toys quickly and gets bored rather quickly. This would be a wonderful gift for him.

  24. Heather Stamper says

    This would be great for my nephew. He likes to play with toys for a day or so and loose interest, so this box of toys would definatly get his attention for more than a day.

  25. shirley pebbles says

    Wow this would make it easier because I would get a variety of toys for her, and I could see which ones she tends to favor without wasting alot of money going to the store to buy ones she won’t play with.
