I first came across Candy Cane Club in Mar 2015 when they were delivering handpicked Books Toys and Art Supply to their members every month in a Subscription Box. The Toys and Books every month would be picked based on a specific theme for the month and the service dint end at just picking and delivering but there was an instruction guide along with the box every month that had brilliant ideas and ways to play at home with the child whether using the toys and books or just other simple things found at home. If you followed the instructions closely, every month was a story that you could take your child through. My husband and I are involved parents and we instantly connected with this idea and service. For a Parent that wants to spend some amount of quality time with the child everyday where you are actually involved in playing with your child , this is a must have. I strongly believe that a child's development physically and emotionally is best when the Parent is actively playing with the child.

Candy Cane Club is now an App for Parents and is available for free on Play Store. They don't ship the Toys and Books anymore but have made it easier for Parents by just pointing them to First Cry or Amazon or Flipkart with absolutely excellent picks every month. Why browse 10s of Pages wondering what to buy when you can know exactly what to buy and from where! Not just that, there are games and creative activities that you could do at home. Sometimes there are suggestions on really good places in the city that you could visit with your child with ideas on what you could do there or how to see the place.

Their Discovery races and treasure hunts are amazing fun over the weekend. There was the Under Sea Treausre Hunt where they shipped an actual treasure map that looked many many years old. Then there was this Egg Hunt where they sent real looking Dinosaur Eggs that made the kids go crazy. They sent instructions and beautiful video clues through the App and the children had to crack open the eggs as per the parents instructions and follow the clues to complete tasks. One such task was to warm the Dinosaur Eggs in order to get them ready to hatch. The children learned so much through this Hunt. Why warm the eggs and the 100 possibilities of warming the eggs in the house!

I can also save all my child's photos through this app in one place, arranged so beautifully, and don't have to stress about copying photos from my mobile onto a harddrive and fear losing them!
