Austin Lloyd is a subscription box that provides items based on your child's developmental milestones. They make is very easy to choose which play level best fits your child, by listing some suggested physical and cognitive guidelines and milestones for both infant and toddler up to 3 years of age. Austin Lloyd offers a 1 month and 3 month subscription package for only $49.99 per month or a 6 month subscription for $44.99 per month which you can cancel at any point in time. Each box will contain 4-5 different toys each month. How cool is that? You can also purchase a subscription to be gifted to a friend or family member. All this makes Austin Lloyd very easy to work with.
When your child is at a new play level or no longer plays with certain toys, Austin Lloyd will donate them to charity. Reuse your Austin Lloyd box to ship your old toys for free and they will donate to those less fortunate.
After purchasing your subscription, you will not only get a confirmation email but you will also be informed of when your box has been shipped along with a tracking number through USPS.
My box was shipped within 5 business days of receiving the confirmation email.
I received the Austin Lloyd Development Box for ages 13-18 months on June 16th. When I opened the box, I was very surprised to see that it was personalized for my son with his name on a card. This makes me feel like they actually care about each and every one of their customers. There are also some note cards describing each toy. All the products were packaged individually in the main box.
My son loves to bounce the pegs out of their holes so he can put them back in. He laughs every time they come jumping out.
It is good for him to be able to feel different shapes and textures on the pegs as well.
Honestly, if I were to put a few toys on a table including this one, he would choose this over the others.
My only qualm about this product is after having it for only one week, the paint started chipping off one of the pegs.
The second toy we opened was the wobble owl. It is a good size for my son to hold onto without it being too large for his little hands, but not too small for him to choke on it when he decides he needs something to chew on. He loves to bang this around or toss it and watch it come back to a standing position, so being durable is great.
The cup and ball toy was next on our list. He has only played with it inside the house and in the sand. We have not used this in water yet, but have every intention of doing so. This is a great toy. He likes using it as a shovel or throwing the ball.
I feel it has many benefits such as being able to take the two cup pieces apart and explore with them, watching the sand or water flow out of the holes or being able to use them as shovels, one in each hand of course.
Right now, they work better as separate toys. Using the ball with the cups for him isn't very useful. He’d rather toss the ball around the house instead of putting the ball inside or scooping the ball up with the cups.
The book, "Dancing Feet" was the last item we got into. It is a very cute little story with lots of great noises for mom or dad to act out. He isn't much for listening to the words and dancing around or stomping as the book intended from the note cards. We would either have to do it with him while reading the book for him to copy us or my 3-year-old daughter would move around and he of course would follow.
Overall, I find Austin Lloyd to be a fantastic company to work with and it is truly amazing how dedicated they are to helping children learn and have fun. Their 13-18 month development box is wonderful for my son. Not only does he love playing with all the toys, but my whole family loves playing with him and seeing his reaction to what is happening.
I would purchase for other stages and would recommend for a friend or family. The packaging was nice and neat. Every product had its own description card and it was sent just for my son.
