Mrs Fox's Crafty Boxes - Q & A's...

Mrs Fox’s Crafty Boxes questions and answers. 
Starting this Easter we will be creating craft kits for children delivered to your door on a monthly basis.    

How much is a monthly subscription?                                 
Each month works out at a cost of £10.50 per box plus P&P. 
(P&P £4.95)

Do we have to subscribe on a yearly basis?
As a new venture, we will be asking for payment for each forthcoming 3 months.  We will require 1 months written notice (an email to will do) if you do not wish to renew your subscription.  

These boxes sound interesting but I have 2 children… I can’t buy them each a box, how can this work for me?
Our boxes will always contain plenty enough for you to be able to make at least 3 of the main craft.  On top of this, we will also include at least 3 additional craft ideas so there will be plenty to get on with.  In fact, if you have a friend back after school, you will have enough to keep them all busy.

I can buy craft packs from my local supermarket, why are yours different or better?
The creations that will emerge from our box will not be like anything you can buy in the supermarket or even major craft shops.  We take pride in coming up with something a little different.  We also, where possible, use natural or recyclable materials.  We will even have you recycling items from your own home.  We aim to have you and your child creating items that you will not want to throw away.  We will only use plastic or foam if there is no alternative.  The designs are our own and much of our kit is hand crafted or cut by us.

My children are aged 4, 6 and 10, will they all get something to do from this box?
We spend a lot of time trying to design our products with variations for age.  We offer more difficult, alternative methods so that the interest of older children is held and their own inspired imaginations are encouraged.  We like to think that children up to 12 years old might enjoy customising our crafts and stamping their own identity on them.

I have a boy and a girl, on your site you point us to a sleeping princess kit, how are they both going to enjoy this?
  • As much as possible, we make our boxes non-gender specific.  As parents of both boys and girls, we are aware that sometimes gender is a very grey area and at other times, the divide is glaringly obvious.  We use this experience in our designs.  If one of our crafts errs towards the feminine, we will offset this or spin it so that a boy will be interested.  For example, our Easter craft box will offer the chance to make tulips or daffs for mum or grandma.  Both my sons love to give me flowers (usually picked from some-one’s garden) and pictures as much as my daughter does and they all love making anything out of cardboard.
  • We will ask upon subscription, the sex of your child/children in order that we can make adjustments should any craft be, to our mind, too gender specific.

If you have any more questions about our boxes, please leave them in the comments box below and we will do our best to answer them as soon as possible.

If you’re one of our 50% off-ers….

If you are lucky enough to be a winner of our fantastic Mrs Fox’s discount, we ask for a little something from you in return.

We would appreciate it if you would take the time to send us pictures of some of the things you make from our boxes, maybe even piccies of you and your children (or just their hands) making them.  We would also be grateful for comments and feedback (good or bad) so that we can constantly revise our plans for future boxes.

We’re not asking that you do this every time you receive your box but we hope to build a little place where people can share their crafting experiences and offer hints and tips to each other.

Thank you!


  1. Hi

    Regarding the Crafty Boxes, is there a specific date of the month for sending these out or is it set around when you subscribe?

    1. Hello there,

      We will be sending our boxes out on the the third Monday of every month - so in general, if you subscribe after this third Monday, your first box will go out with the following months subscription. However, if you contact us and we have a box left, we may be able to get you started that month.
      We hope this answers your question.

  2. Hi

    if I was already a subscriber and I need to up my box order for just one month would this be possible?

  3. Hello there,

    We will be sending out boxes on the third Monday of each month so if you already subscribe, as long as we have (at least if possible) 10 days notice, we will be able to send you an additional box.

    Thanks for your question!

  4. Hello, I just wanted to make sure that you got the 'ME PLEASE!' that I emailed to you. I don't want to keep emailing you as I'm sure you have much craftiness to be getting on with...

    1. Hello there,

      Certainly, we got your 'ME PLEASE!' and we will be sending you a 'Congratulations' email! We really hope you enjoy our boxes, thank you for taking an interest in our new venture.
