our story

Hi! We're Jenn and Shannen, best friends for 20 years and founders of Kidspire Crate. In the last few years, we've grown our families with both boys and girls which has propelled us into the world of family, motherhood, and parenting. Oh, and coffee. Lots of coffee.
We love reading with our kids and believe books are important for every family. They offer us ideas about the world, transport us to new places and help teach valuable life lessons. While encouraging a love of reading on a daily basis, we noticed a surprising lack of gender and racial diversity in the characters in the books. In 2020, this is both surprising and disappointing. Hence Kidspire Crate was born!
Our mission is simple: to highlight the achievements of women, through powerful stories and stimulating activities, at a critical time in every child’s life.
We've spent hundreds of hours researching themes, activities, and books to ensure the little ones in your life are surprised and delighted every month. And you'll get some free time back to focus on the fun stuff. All children benefit from seeing girls in protagonist roles, breaking barriers and achieving great things and we take great strides to ensure the activities, toys and fun are for any child.
You may notice that we limit the number of subscription boxes available each month. This is to ensure every crate is lovingly packaged for a truly inspiring experience. View our collections here to find the one for you.
Reach out to us any time if you don't see what you're looking for.
