How it works?
How old is your child?
Our boxes are curated to help your child develop skills appropriate for their age.
Why play with shumee?
Our toys and games are designed for unstructured, open-ended play. They help your child explore and discover without rules and boundaries!
Our toys are made of 100% natural materials and ASTM-certified for child safety. We use only lead-free paints, azo-free dyes, and natural polishes.
PLAY TO LEARN
Our toys help your child develop age-appropriate skills including creativity, fine & gross motor skills, problem solving, communication, and self-expression.
How are we different?
We send you many ways to play!
Our subscription toy boxes contain delightful, multi-faceted toys and super-fun activities. They offer so many different ways to play that your child will never be bored. And you won't have to go toy-hunting again and again!
Our subscription boxes arrive every 3 months
Children grow in leaps and bounds and every 3 months, they are ready to move to the next stage. Our boxes are designed to parallel this developmental journey and arrive in time to help your child achieve new milestones.
Your kiddo learns through play
We design our toys and games to be, first and foremost, fun for the child to explore. This way, they engage with the toy longer and during play, imbibe key skills appropriate for their age.

Frequently Asked Questions
1: Can the shumee Boxes of Play be customized?
No—and for a very good reason. :) Your child's development needs are different at every age and so is their ability to pick up new skills. We have curated every Box of Play with handpicked toys, games, activities, and accessories that are appropriate for your child's age and development stage. So, substituting or customizing the contents of the boxes does not make sense. If you are looking for anything specific, please do ping us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you choose.
2: What is included in each box?
Each box has 2 to 6 handpicked toys, games, activities, and accessories that are not just fun for your child to play with, but also help them develop important life skills such as problem solving, communication, social interaction, focus and attention, creativity, etc.
3: Are the toys in the Boxes of Play different from the other toys on your website?
Some are new and some are already available on our website. We put together every box with a mix of toys that impart age-appropriate skills to your child.
Our intent with these curated Boxes of Play is to simplify your life. We have handpicked the contents of these boxes so that you don't have to scour our website or others for new toys every few months. And we will ship the right boxes to you every 3 months, as your child moves to the next growth stage.
4: I am a regular shumee customer. What if I already have a toy that's in the box?
We love our regular customers! If you have lots of shumee toys already, don't worry. After placing your subscription order, please drop a line to email@example.com and tell us which products you already have. We will select equally awesome substitutes for your boxes.
5: Can I return a subscription Box of Play?
*If you've placed your order for a subscription box and not yet received it, please request a cancellation by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. However once you receive a subscription box, we do not accept returns. You can ask for the remaining boxes to be stopped: see the next question.
6: Can I stop my subscription in between?
*Sure. Please write to email@example.com if you need to stop your subscription. If you have already received any Boxes of Play, you will be charged for those and issued a refund for the remaining boxes. This refund will be credited to your account
