    I’ve been subscribed for both my kids since August 2014. I’ve had nothing but issue upon issue with them. Now they informed us that from May 2015 the price will increase to R325 but it suddenly doesn’t include delivery any more (although that was one of the things stated everywhere on the website and in all printed ads when I joined). So it will now cost R 392 – that is a 30% increase! I enjoy Momtrepeneur and I’m not sure you should be endorsing this product.

    • Hi Rochelle, thank you for your feedback. I immediately made an inquiry and got an official response below. Thank you again.

      Hello Rochelle,

      We understand the frustrations that are often cause by annual price increases, but please rest assured that we are trying our utmost to accommodate all our Members as best we can.

      Over the past year delivery costs have risen to such an extent that it is simply no longer sustainable for us include it in subscription fees and for Mysmartkid to keep cushioning these increases in its business model.
      That’s why we have made the decision to keep the price increase on the programme as low as possible (only 10%) and then give our Members a choice of delivery methods ranging from R19 to R67.
      This way you have a measure of control over your total cost every two months.

      Please also keep in mind that the value of the Smartbox is not determined only by the toys in each box.
      One of the many things that sets Mysmartkid apart from other Early Childhood Development Programmes is the fact that our dedicated experts guide you through each one of our six developmental areas.
      For the Smartbox this is done with a full-colour Parent Guide in every box which explains the purpose of each item with great ideas for fun activities.
      And of course over and above the Smartbox, your subscription fee also includes:
      • weekly emails with suggestions for activities and additional educational toys
      • a monthly newsletter with helpful tips and advice from our panel of experts – tailored to your child’s age and stage of development
      • exclusive member-only discounts in the Mysmartkid online shop
      • instant access to informative blogs and additional downloads on the Mysmartkid website

      Please feel free to contact us on 0861 555 224 should you need any assistance in choosing the best option for you and your little one.

      Kind regards,
      The Mysmartkid Team

    Great review for a great programme. I signed up my son when they first launched in May last year and we’ve loved it ever since. I think I get more excited than he does when every box arrives. It’s always a great surprise and fun to open it together.

    What i love most is that many of the toys are not readily available in the shops (well, i haven’t seen them!).
    I’ve told most of my friends about it – very educational and fun for kids!
