Play Tricks are simple and fun activities delivered right to your mailbox. Each activity is carefully designed based on your child’s development.

No more scrolling, planning, or wondering, "How is it only 10AM?!" Yep, we’ve all been there.


Let us take the stress out of your day so you can focus on meaningful play with your child. Plus, who doesn’t like getting a bright, special envelope in the mail every month?

New Trick Kids is a husband-wife-toddler small business that began in April 2018. We were living in rural Illinois when I became that crazy lady who filled ziplock bags with rice and googly eyes and called it a “sensory bag.” As a former teacher, planning, creating and inventing new ways to keep my daughter (and I) occupied and having fun was the highlight to my day!

Over the past year or so, we’ve launched activity magazines, sensory bin kits, messy mats, and shared countless activities and tips.

We decided it was time for something simple.

Something practical you can depend on (because we get how busy being a parent and caregiver can be).

A resource that’s delivered directly to your mailbox, around the world! At New Trick Kids, we’re here to provide resources to make play simple, easy, and fun for everyone!


Play Tricks is a monthly subscription that delivers fun, developmentally appropriate activities to your mailbox. Our current subscription is designed for ages 12-24 months (Explorers) and 24-36 months (Builders) with the goal of eventually serving all early childhood children. (Interested in another age group? Send us a message here!)

Each month you’ll receive a professionally designed accordion- style book filled with 10 activity ideas and some extra tips, tricks, and surprises from us. Majority of the activities included each month are evergreen activities (meaning they can be completed year-round) while a few others have a seasonal twist (Don’t worry Australia, we still got you covered!)

  • This is a recurring monthly subscription- Subscriptions close on the 16th of each month. So, if you’re dying to receive the July Play Tricks, be sure to sign up by June 16th! After the initial sign up month, you will be charged on the 1st of each month. Monthly Play Tricks will ship around the 24th of each month, so you’ll have plenty of time to spend the next month playing!
