“I could not be more impressed. The quality of the materials is fantastic and the activities are engaging and so much fun. This is by far the best subscription box I’ve seen for kids. My son LOVES it. ”
“These kits are ideal for kids from ages 5-9. They make an excellent homeschooling curriculum supplement. And hey, if you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas- an @oysterkit subscription would be a winner!”
“Our family really enjoyed the doctor’s kit from Oyster. We have used other subscription boxes, and they pale in comparison to quality.”
“It was so much fun! I think you’ll love it. We do!
“All items in the kit look as real as it is possible, considering that it’s still a game aimed at children. My daughter loved it and learned quite a lot!”

We are always happy to help in case you have questions. But you might be lucky to find the answer(s) you need in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) below.

General FAQs

What is Oyster?

We create boxes related to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) professions for kids 5 – 9 years old. We help parents spend quality time with their children and develop their child’s social, emotional, and cognitive skills and as well as their creativity through play.

What's the best age for the kits?

All the kits are intended for kids 5 – 9 years old. Kids closer to 9 years old will be able to complete all the tasks by themselves, while younger kids will need some assistance from adults.

How does the subscription work?

The date you sign up is the date that your subscription will renew. Your kits will continue to ship every month for the duration of your subscription.

What if I don't like the kits?

We’ll happily give you your money back if you or your kids didn’t enjoy any of our kits.

Just drop us a message here or on Facebook within 30 days of the delivery of the kit you didn’t like.

What is your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your subscription at any time via your account. Your account is created after your first purchase

Do you have special discounts for siblings?

Yes, we have discounts if you need a subscription for several kids. Use this checkout form to find our sibling discount.

Can I purchase the kits as a gift?

Yes, definitely! We have gift options available. You can specify the address of the recipient or leave it blank and the recipient will have the opportunity to enter it when they first log in.

Subscriptions are non-recurring when purchased as a gift. This means that we won’t charge your card when the subscription period ends.

What is the difference between a subscription and a gift?

Subscription means a recurrent order that renews automatically when the paid period is up.

We offer the option to purchase a non-recurring subscription as a gift. This means that you can easily send the kits to someone without worrying that your card will be charged when the paid period has expired.

Can I purchase a single kit without subscribing?

All the kits are available by subscription only. The idea behind the subscription is the continuous discovery of professions, role-play, and cognitive development.

If you’re worried that your kid won’t like the kits or you only need one kit, you can subscribe and then cancel after your first month.

Payment

What are the billing options? Can I pay monthly?

At the moment we offer 4 billing options: monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months, and once a year. You can choose your preferred method during checkout.

What if I decide to buy again after I canceled my subscription - would I be getting the same kits again?

If you would like to continue with the order of kits after a “pause”, simply send us an email or send us a message on Facebook stating which kits you’ve already received and we’ll handle your request.

What if I decide to cancel before the end of the prepaid period - will I get my money back?

Of course! We’ll return your money for the remaining months. Please, contact us with a refund request via email or Facebook. Otherwise, your subscription will continue until the end of the pay period.

Orders & Shipping

Where do you deliver?

Subscription kits can be shipped anywhere in the United States, including Hawaii, Alaska, and territories. Standard shipping is free in the U.S.

Help! I didn’t get an email confirmation.

If you placed an order and did not receive an order confirmation, it may have ended up in your spam folder. If you did not receive a confirmation, please contact us at fun@oysterkit.com.

I placed an order recently - when does it ship?

All orders ship from our warehouse within 3 business days, Monday – Friday+ up to 10 business days for delivery. Usually, it takes a week or so to deliver. Orders are subject to delays during peak shipping times & holidays.

Still haven’t received your package?

Looking for your package?  Sometimes USPS prematurely marks packages as “delivered” before they have completed transit.  Usually, packages appear within 1-2 days later.  If it still has not arrived, please check that your package was not accidentally delivered to a neighbor, placed at the back door, or with a doorman.

If you still have not received your package within 3 days, please email us at fun@oysterkit.com for assistance.
