Kids enjoying Koala Crate activity kits

Koala Crate was created to expose preschoolers to new materials, tools, and concepts for hands-on learning and fun.

As parents, we know it's not always easy to provide these quality experiences for our children, and want to make it easy and convenient to build, explore, and create together.

We're grateful to play a part in this journey with you!

Ocean Games

Make a splash with science and math! Use a fishing pole to catch all sorts of felt sea creatures — from fin-tastic fishes to friendly turtles.

Doctor's Visit

Explore empathy through pretend play! Assemble and decorate a medical kit, complete with thermometer, stethoscope, and plenty of felt bandages. Use your medical tools and handy doctor checklist to check your patients' ears, throat, heart, and more. Then use some felt bandages (and maybe a hug) to make them all better!

It is a fantastic learning kit for kids!

They are a wonderful resource for families, with activities that entertain and also educate. They allow the children to be inspired to learn further. And as a mother the fact that everything is included, that we can open the crate and go with whatever activity, is a huge help. It is also so nice to quickly be able to see what activities are needing more or less parental help and how messy they will be so we can choose what we can handle at that moment. They have been an amazing resource in our home.

It was fun and engaging, it was age appropriate. My kids loved it and so did I. The bonus activities in the little book made for bonus fun and we extended the activities. It was a huge hit.

These crates far exceeded my expectations. My kids were so proud of themselves. I barely had to intervene other than reading the instructions.
