Good Monthly Package Subscriptions for Kids?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: My mother is asking what the grandkids would like for the holidays this year, and I’ve got a few ideas to give her. I hate — HATE! — toys, and generally suggest books, DVDs, art supplies, clothes, etc. Last year, she got magazine subscriptions for my now 8-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter, which they loved. They really enjoy getting things in the mail, so I was looking for a monthly mailing to suggest to my mom. I found several via Google, but most of them are pretty non-specific about the package contents. Do you or the readers know of any monthly package subscriptions that are tried, tested, and kid-approved?
