Subscription boxes are awesome, and we can’t ever praise them enough. Luckily, we have a variety of South African subscription services aimed specifically at parents and kids. Not on the train yet? Here’s what you’re missing out on!
A roundup of the best South African subscription services
Do you feel utterly frustrated with not knowing what to whip up for dinner, again? Perhaps you just don’t have time to run to the shops to gather your dinner goodies. Luckily, Daily Dish is here to help. The service plans your menus for you and delivers your groceries to your door. With new and exciting recipes every week, all you have to do is cook. The best part? Their recipes require 30 minutes or less for cooking time!
The Book Owl is one of the best South African subscription services if you’re looking to help your kid discover the joys of reading. Their boxes cost less than you’d pay for individual books in the store. Every month, your kid will get two illustrated kids’ books, and activity related to one of the books, and a personalised letter.
My Smart Kid is a leading SA-based education-based subscription service that focuses on Early Childhood Development. It’s a great and cost-effective way to invest in the foundation of your kid’s education. My Smart Kid curates themes based on wellbeing, identity, creativity, concepts, communication, and my world. Packages are delivered bimonthly and are filled with educational activities as well as parental guides which ensure fun for mom and baby.
Babalove is a subscription service for parents that want to find the best products for their little humans. The boxes include the best clothing, bath products, toys and books for babies and takes the guesswork out of the parenting game for new parents.
Although we all want our kids to stay entertained for longer periods, we also want to ensure that they’re not staying busy with mindless activities. And that’s why Wacky Box exists. The service sets out weekly activity programs that focus on developing key skills like arts and crafts, fine-motor skills, gross-motor skills, music and speech.
