New Canadian Subscription Box: The Spark Box
We are very excited to introduce you to a new Canadian Subscription Box: The Spark Box!
Here’s everything you need to know….and more!
What It Is
The Spark Box is a quarterly subscription and gift box service for mamas and minis. Each box is designed to mindfully address age-specific developmental milestones for babies and toddlers, and to support the overall health and wellbeing of mamas. Their goal is to spark inspiration, spark exploration, and nurture growth in the home. They source the highest-quality items from local Canadian brands, award-winning lines, as well as toys and products from leading brands in childhood development.
The Spark Story
The inspiration for The Spark Box came from Mackenzie (a mama) and Sara (a teacher).
The Spark Box was born after Sara & Mackenzie noticed a gap in the subscription box market. There was a void of boxes available for mama and mini that were geared towards both education and wellness – two aspects of parenthood that are intrinsically linked.
“Here at The Spark Box, our mission is simple: support the wellbeing of families by providing carefully curated subscription boxes that target a child’s specific age and developmental stage, while taking care of mama and helping her feel her best!
All of our products, activities, and resources are hand-selected and research-backed to promote ongoing learning and exploration. We proudly source products from local Canadian brands, whenever possible! We hope to help mamas feel comfortable and confident so that they can focus on building a strong and loving bond with their little one. After all, parent-child interactions are the foundation for learning and development.”

Are the Items in Each Box Always the Same
They select the infant items annually per box, and these will typically stay the same for the year.
All infant items are selected based on the specific age range and are research-backed, tried and true products from small Canadian shops or leading developmental brands.
The mama items, however, will change quarterly. These items are seasonally inspired and will be in the health, wellness, beauty and functional categories.
Every box includes additional bonus items.
Each quarter they have a ‘Lucky Mama Draw’ which enters all subscription orders into a draw for the chance to win a big prize.
Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time. Simply login to your payment portal by clicking the sign-in button on the website and cancel your subscription.
