Austin Lloyd puts together beautiful and engaging subscription toy boxes for babies and toddlers for every month of the year! The items included in every box are developmentally appropriate toys from reputable brands that stimulate creativity and imaginative play. They can be personalized for kids of different play levels all the way from infancy to 3 years.
Every box is beautifully wrapped and personalized with your child's name, and comes with an envelope filled with activity cards. The cards list creative ideas on how to play with your child with the toys included!
The theme of the box we received was “Sky and Space!” We received an adorable children's book called Rocket to the Moon, a wooden helicopter with moving rotor and wheels, a plush ball with rings that come apart (reminds me of Saturn), stacking star-shaped cups, and a click-clacking rainbow colored rolling toy!

Although the box is geared toward babies from 12 to 18 months, both my 14-month-old and 3-year-old have a blast playing with these toys. The wooden helicopter, by Hape, engages my little boy who has started to show an interest in any kind of vehicle and loves to make motor sounds.
The Green Toys stacking cups are absolutely perfect for helping him develop the fine motor skill of building a tower (although, knocking it over is definitely his favorite part!), and the cognitive skill of placing smaller items inside of larger items. Rocket to the Moon is an adorable story about Little Nye and his friends, who build a rocket together and pretend to take a trip to the moon. The pages are very thick and durable, and not easily torn by a 1-year-old.
The wooden rolling click-clacking toy from Melissa & Doug is my favorite out of the bunch, and my kids enjoy rolling it across the floor to each other! The Haba plush ball has a soft rod in the center with 4 rings that stack together to form a ball! Each ring has different patterns and colors, and even make different sounds.
Overall, we have been so pleased with the Austin Lloyd subscription box! All of the toys included are high-end toys that will not be found in major retail stores, do not require batteries, and are engaging for your little one. The overall retail value of the items is quite a bit higher than the cost of the box, so it really is a great deal! What's in a box »
