Something to come in the post for a 5 yr old?

My 5 yr old has a subscription to Storybox magazine and loves it. He loves the stories, but mainly he loves getting something in the post once a month.
I'd like to find something similar where he gets something in the post, but I can't really find another magazine subscription he would like.

Can anyone recommend anything? A craft box or something maybe? I'm not sure where to look.

(And if anyone needs any ideas, Storybox is fab!)

Toucan do a craft box & think there is also a mister maker one. You can usually get an offer for first box free.
Or there is a link on referral thread for something called weekend boxes

National geographic kids is great and available on subscription, my 4 and 6 year olds love it.

We also love StoryBox, we had it for DS but now we're going to get it for DD who is 3 and get Okido for DS.

I was going to say NGK too (on tesco vouchers like storybox is)
Storytime is a lovely kids magazine too.

Does he like comic books? The phonix is awesome!

I was looking for a subscription for MIL the other day (who knew there were so many??) and there was a kids baking one that looked good, think it was called mini bakers or similar

StoryBox isn't on vouchers any more sadly.

Sorry me again just remembered I liked a toy one on Facebook a while ago too, haven't actually signed up to it so not sure if it's any good or not but it was called My Pocket Money Toy

Premium Bonds. First edition stamp covers. (Is that still a thing?)

We had Toucan Box and it was excellent. You can get a trial one for free.

I have never heard of Storytime magazine. It didn't come up in any of my searches. I might go for that, and hope it doesn't arrive the same day as Storybox every month.

I did sèe the toucan box but it seemed maybe a bit expensive. Grandparents are wanting to buy a years subscription up front for Christmas.

Thanks for the ideas
