We created Banyan Tree Kidz after noticing the increasing trend in screen time and electronic use by children from a very young age. As a result, there has been a sharp decline in hands-on creative play and reading time. Our goal is to bring back the art of reading and experimental play to get children interested in science, math, engineering, technology and art from early childhood. Early childhood reading and sensory play is proven to be not only beneficial but also essential in cognitive development of children between ages 2-7.
Each of our boxes contain a generous amount of material for one child however, many of our boxes can accommodate supplies for 2 children but not always. Usually, we update this info on our Facebook page or Instagram when releasing the month's theme.
We offer $4.99 USD flat rate shipping to Canada and USA. We hope to offer worldwide shipping in the future.
You can order your box until the end of each month and our boxes will ship between the 2nd and 4th of the following month. It usually takes 5-8 business days to reach you once your boxes have been shipped.
Yes, you can cancel your subscription anytime with no extra costs. However, make sure you cancel before the 11th of each month to stop your subscription from renewing.
Our boxes are carefully designed and curated for kids between ages 3-7. However, for children between 3-5, some adult involvement will be required. Adult supervision is necessary in handling every Banyan Tree Box due to small objects involved in making the science and art kits.
Every book that we sell is brand-new and never been used. On some of the books you might see a small red dot which signifies that the original publisher has accepted over-stocked books from the retailers for extra credit to the retailers. We sometimes buy books from publishers which are over-stocked but always brand-new. We are an environmentally conscious company and care deeply about books. Thus, when we find a book which is suitable for our box, we make a conscious decision to buy back these books from publishers so they are not wasted, while helping our company reduce our ecological footprint. This also helps us keep prices low for you and reach as many book-lovers as we can.
