Is it for dads? Is it for kids? Well, yes to both.
The Cooper and Kid quarterly subscription kit is for dads who want to spend quality time with their children doing stuff together: themed projects, toys, books, and ideas chock-a-block in every delivery.
It facilitates making precious memories and creating a world of learning and imagination together—sounds like fun.
Cooper and Kid have already won numerous awards and nominations for creative play and innovative product design.
So, let’s get into more detail about what’s in the box, and whether it’s considered good value for money.

How Does Cooper and Kid Work?
Cooper and Kid activities are aimed at fathers and their children aged 5 to 9 years old (or so).
The selling point is that your children will want to hang out with you when you open a Cooper and Kid box every three months.
It won’t just make you the most fun parent to be with, but a Cooper kit will also provide you with the activities to do together.
No more having to wrack your brain about how to spend a rainy afternoon over the weekend when it’s too miserable to play outside.
Two syllables can describe the contents and inspiration behind every Cooper and Kid delivery—awe-some.
Cooper kit boxes comfortably fill a corner of the kids’ activities market, doing so with ingenuity and understanding.
The idea is for a caregiver, father-figure or dad to effortlessly spend time with one child (or several) doing fun stuff together.
The adult gets to unwrap the box with the children watching and introduce each item.
It’s a real hands-on experience from the minute the box spills its contents (no time to sit in front of the television when a Cooper Kit is being opened).
From then on, it’s a themed ride of fun, adventure, learning, and construction.
Types of Boxes Available
The themes Cooper and Kid base their box contents on are highly entertaining.
A sampling of the themes includes:
- The deep seas and oceans.
- The Greatest Battle in the Realm (Pigs and Wolves fight for supremacy).
Every Cooper and Kid kit arrives with several curated activities and products specifically designed to make spending time with dad fun.
Look out for the following in your quarterly Cooper kit box.
- The shipping box turns into a toy.
- Activity guidebook.
- Bedtime story.
- Links to digital resources and theme-related games.
- 6 to 9 themed multi-activities.
In addition to the box contents, Cooper and Kid resolve to make every activity and theme geographically neutral and gender-neutral.
This is tremendously reassuring to know, especially when it’s warm in the south and still snowbound in the north.
One of the best things about the quarterly Cooper and Kid shipping dates is that each box arrives in time for Father’s Day, schools breaks, and the major holidays.
This makes it the ideal gift for a dad’s or the cool grandpa’s birthday or Father’s Day presents.
You can’t entertain kids or grandkids with a bottle of cologne!
In the opinion of many parents, no price is too high when it comes to quality entertainment and activities for children that also helps them learn.
- A quarterly subscription (where you receive 1 Cooper kit every three months and your account is billed every three months as well) costs $65 per kit.
- A yearly subscription can save you $24 with a once-off annual payment of $236.
- Gift cards are available if you want to award someone a subscription or Christmas surprise.
You can indicate which timing preference you would like during checkout (Christmas, June, March, September).
The holidays will never again be full of the mantra of, ‘I’m bored, Dad.’
Cooper and Kid Company History
Cooper and Kid have a mission, and it is to help you fulfill your mission as a father.
Every time you sit down with your kids and open a Cooper kit, you are shaping a future of success and happiness for your children.
It’s not just to entertain kids; a Cooper kit provides mental stimulation for the dedicated dads out there as well.
The Cooper and Kid story actually begins around a fire in an African hut.
The Cooper and Kid founder, Nichole Smaglick, lived in the remotest areas of the African continent.
There, Nichole interacted with traditional warrior cultures and chieftain leaders—a culture perpetuated in the Cooper and Kid philosophy.
- Creation Crate: With different pricing structures to suit the broadest range of pockets, Creation Crate is devoted to introducing the subject of electronics to kids every month.
- Brick Loot: If you and your kids spend huge amounts of cash buying famous brand name plastic brick building kits, you may want to see if a Brick Loot monthly subscription is a good way to feed your brick-based habit.
- Free shipping.
- International customers can order delivery anywhere in the world.
- It says 5 to 9 years old, but it could easily stretch to 3 to 12+ years old.
- Excellent customer service.
- Easy to cancel your subscription and change your shipping address.
- The quality of the items may not be durable enough to last until the next box arrives.
- Recipes are not all allergy aware.
There is nothing similar to Cooper and Kid elsewhere on the market. It is a truly unique concept that promotes a bond between father and kids like no other subscription out there.
The market seems to be saturated with mommy-centric activities and deliverables, so it’s really refreshing to see a service that allows a mother to say the words that children love to hear, “Wait until your father gets home to open it.”
Unexpected value is added by the curated videos and video content.
A full month’s worth of activities can be found in one box, with heightened expectation kicking in until the arrival of the next kit.
