Spark Box Toys – The Perfect Toy for Your Child

by Guest Contributor

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.

How it Works

  • Tell SparkboxToys about your child
  • They personalize your box and send it to you
  • Your child plays with it for 4 weeks or more


Plans & Prices

  • There are three subscription plans you can chose from: $22.95 for a Box every 8 weeks; $27.95 for a Box every 6 weeks or $34.95 for a Box every 4 weeks
  • The average SparkBox is valued at over $120, but you pay only selected membership fee
  • SparkboxToys pays for all the shipping!
  • Once you fulfill the 2-month commitment, you may cancel at anytime


Cleaning & Safety 

  • They take cleaning and safety very seriously!
  • Every toy is rigorously examined, cleaned and sanitized to be sure the toys you receive are safe, clean and just like new!
  • 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 Mom24 November 10, 2011 at 8:03 am

How incredible! I love the idea of new, positive toys for my kids, that will spark their imagination, I do not have time to shop.


3 Mom24 November 10, 2011 at 8:03 am

I love this! As a busy mom I do not have time to shop, so I love the idea of fresh, fun, worthy toys coming right to my door for my kids.


4 Jennifer Folker November 10, 2011 at 12:51 pm

SPARKBOX can help me because they have a little of everything.


5 Tami M November 10, 2011 at 3:53 pm

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.



6 Christine Jensen November 10, 2011 at 5:26 pm

With all of the toys out on the market these days it can be hard to pick educational toys that my children will enjoy, I love that sparkbox helps me do this!


7 Ethicas November 10, 2011 at 7:55 pm

What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this, it’s such a great way to give children an educational experience with variety.


8 June November 10, 2011 at 10:03 pm

What a great concept, such a neat way to recycle the toy’s, love it!


9 GinaPeters November 11, 2011 at 3:18 am

This is very innovative! This will help thin out the clutter in my house because we won’t be getting toys that the kids want just because they saw it on TV.


10 Alyson November 11, 2011 at 7:53 am

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.


12 Lizzy January 9, 2012 at 2:38 pm

I think this is good because it would let me know what toys keep my boys entertained before purchasing them.


13 Chuck January 9, 2012 at 9:27 pm

What a neat way to re-use the toys.


14 Name* January 10, 2012 at 7:38 am

With 3 kids under 6, toys are always coming and going in our house. This is a genius idea!


15 Vanesa January 10, 2012 at 10:13 am

I love this idea! My kids get bored with their toys so this is the perfect answer to that.


16 Angela E. January 10, 2012 at 12:11 pm

What a neat concept.


17 kathy January 10, 2012 at 12:14 pm

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


18 Shannon January 10, 2012 at 1:34 pm

By giving me an idea what my children would like to play with.


19 Garrett January 10, 2012 at 10:00 pm

What a fantastic idea to come up with!


20 Miranda Ward January 10, 2012 at 10:32 pm

This would help the kids from getting tired of a certain toy


21 Vickie Couturier January 11, 2012 at 7:02 am

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


22 Kristy Thiel January 11, 2012 at 9:26 am

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!


23 Tami January 11, 2012 at 11:21 am

Already beginning to see how go, go, go in need of new stimulation my 1 year old son is!

Would love to try this subscription – thanks!


24 April Phinazee January 11, 2012 at 3:41 pm

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.


25 Heather January 11, 2012 at 8:33 pm

I love this idea! My kids would be so excited to get a gift each month!


26 Debbie Kennedy January 12, 2012 at 8:15 am

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!


27 Don January 12, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Really like the way this was thought out.


28 lala r January 12, 2012 at 2:37 pm

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

29 Jennifer Candanosa January 13, 2012 at 10:35 am

My son tires easily of toys. I love the idea of switching the toys out for fresh new toys!



30 susan varney January 13, 2012 at 11:21 am

love this new and great idea for toys


31 susan varney January 13, 2012 at 11:23 am

i get your mail- like you on fb-susan v- and i follow you on twitter @mverno


32 Angela LaHaye January 14, 2012 at 10:54 am

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.


33 Van January 14, 2012 at 12:19 pm

This would be good for my good friend & his wife, their son will be turning 2 soon.


34 Shannon January 14, 2012 at 2:10 pm

This would be great for learning what the kids like.


35 anna pry January 14, 2012 at 6:03 pm

i could use help in choosing toys for my 4 mo old that will help her development


36 Sarah January 15, 2012 at 9:15 am

This would be great! We rotate toys, but it’s still the same old toys!


37 Desiree Dunbar January 15, 2012 at 3:25 pm

nothing is wasted!


38 McKinney Mommas January 15, 2012 at 4:31 pm

I’d love to try these toys as I only have one kiddo and have yet to build up a stockpile of things to keep her busy!


39 ACMommy3 January 15, 2012 at 8:44 pm

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


40 Hatton January 15, 2012 at 9:29 pm

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 :)


41 Michaeline Pashley January 16, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Wow! What an interesting idea! I would love to win this and get some toys custom for my child!!!!


42 rachel0 January 18, 2012 at 3:40 pm

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!


43 cynthia layton January 19, 2012 at 6:31 am

sounds cool


44 Ash January 19, 2012 at 10:41 am

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.

45 Christy Ann January 19, 2012 at 11:11 pm

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.


46 Michelle Hagewood January 19, 2012 at 11:37 pm

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.

47 Gianna January 20, 2012 at 12:24 am

Sounds fun!


48 cassandra January 20, 2012 at 1:21 am

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



49 Allison January 20, 2012 at 1:22 am

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!


50 Leah Shumack January 20, 2012 at 9:50 am

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


51 latanya January 20, 2012 at 10:12 am

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.


52 sarah hinhart January 20, 2012 at 11:07 am

I hope I win, what a great product


53 Wendy Rozema January 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm

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


54 Jessica Dawson January 20, 2012 at 3:22 pm

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.

55 Heather Stamper January 20, 2012 at 7:23 pm

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.


56 shirley pebbles January 20, 2012 at 9:21 pm

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.
