Review: Animal Trackers Club

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.

Product Description from Animal Trackers

Bode Bear takes your child to the African Savanna where he tracks a variety of amazing animals. Begin the adventure with your Animal Trackers Club Safari Lunchbox. This lunchbox becomes a play station for the monthly animal magnets as well as storage for the animal play figures, animal information card collection and the “Safari Animal Tracks” ringed set. Each monthly packet will include an Animal Trackers Club Information card with easy to follow and understand information about the animal being tracked that month. The packet will also include a play magnet to add to the lunchbox, a foam animal dress-up mask, and a realistic, hand-painted animal play figure. In addition, the packet will have a “Safari Animal Tracks” card for your ringed set, containing a real photo of the monthly animal as well as the track it leaves in the wild. Each monthly packet will also contain a learning activity and an art project created to develop the skills needed to become a proficient student and reader.

These are some of the projects and worksheets that were included and my son couldn't wait to jump in and start completing everything.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

This is AWESOME! I would have LOVED this as a kid, I was always obsessed with animals. Great price for what you get, I think. Way more affordable for a greater number of families than most subscription boxes I've heard about and seen. Cool service. Something for me to consider when my son is a bit older. Thanks so much for sharing!
