how does it work?

In our simple 3 step process you tell us your child’s age and gender. We use this information to put together an exciting and engaging subscription box, filled with a combination of toys, books and craft activities tailored to your child’s developmental needs – the perfect at home stimulation toolkit for mom, nanny or granny.

Every second month there’s a different theme for you and your child to work with from cars, to bugs to bath time – each theme is packed with ideas and activities for you and your poppet to play with and talk around.

We work on a recurring billing model so your account will be debited every second month if you select the bimonthly option. You can opt out whenever you wish; just pop us a mail to let us know.

Poppet Post is a great gift! We offer a once-off gift box for R299 as well as travel and holiday boxes for R299. We also have a beautiful baby shower box for R439 which is the perfect baby shower gift.

There are no hidden costs. Delivery is included to all South African destinations. All orders close on the last day of every alternate month. For 2020, the cut-off ordering months are by end June, August and October. These boxes will be delivered within the 1st or 2nd week of July, September and November.

Baby Shower, travel, holiday and gift boxes will be delivered within 5 workings days of your order.

Due to the current COVID restrictions, our delivery times might be slightly impacted, as suppliers and couriers are not running at pre-COVID efficiencies. Please bear with us and thank you for your patience.

Kids Subscription Boxes

how we started

Poppet Post was borne out of our passion for early childhood development and learning through play. As parents so many of us spend hundreds of rands on toys that are simply discarded after 5 minutes, or are completely daunted by the vast selection of toys out there; what to choose for which age, what works and doesn’t and how you or your nanny can best stimulate your child at home, are common concerns.

Together with our panel of experts Poppet Post has taken all the hassle out of this by putting together a bespoke monthly subscription box with researched and age appropriate high quality toys and books.

We can’t wait to share and guide you through this exciting time in your child’s life – for more from our experts, browse our blog.


Here are some answers to your frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions you can contact us at


When do I receive my box?

Boxes are delivered every second month. For 2020, the delivery months are July, September and November. For example, if you order your subscription in May or June you will receive your box in July.

How do I receive my box?

We use a courier company that delivers to your door so please provide us with a physical daytime address as well as your phone number.

Are there any costs involved in cancelling?

No. Just email us and your subscription will be cancelled. If your payment has already gone off that month then you will receive the box for the next month.

What’s in a box?

Every second month we work around a theme and the contents of the box will vary accordingly. The boxes are filled with a combination of toys, books and craft activities tailored to your child’s developmental needs – the perfect at home stimulation toolkit for mom, nanny or granny. Take a look at some of our past boxes on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
