My son and I reviewed the Animal Trackers Subscription Box together and I am seriously thinking about purchasing an extended subscription because I think it is actually worth the money they are charging for it, fits his interests, provides fun learning opportunities in a variety of ways and helps aid in doing preschool-at-home,
To start out with they send you the following for your first month:
- Introduction to the Animal Trackers Club
- Animal Trackers Club Safari Lunchbox
- African Savanna Information Card
- Cover and Ring for the Safari Animal Photo Collection
- Savanna Art Project
- Savanna Animal Cards Activity
All of those items are pictured above, as well as what you get each month for a specific animal:
- Animal Information Card
- Animal Play Figure
- Animal Foam Mask
- Animal Magnet
- Safari Animal Photo Card
- Learning Activity
- Art Project
Our first animal was the zebra, so I don't know if that is the typical first animal or not, but all of the monthly items pertain to just this one animal to help you really learn about that animal and reinforce everything you are learning about it.
The lunchbox that comes with your first month is made of metal and so darn cute! You might just want to get it just so you can get this. There are 4 different plans that you can choose from and each one you also need to pay $3 a month for s/h. The monthly or 3-month plan both break down to $12 a month, the 6 month plan breaks down to $11.67 a month and the 12 month plan breaks down to $11.25 a month. So, as you can see this is a pretty affordable way to provide some activities to your preschooler's day, as this box is geared towards ages 3 and older.
The picture below is of my son trying out the zebra mask. I think my kids will have even more fun when we get more animals masks and they can each pretend to be different animals.
