Frequently Asked Questions
All the awesome answers to your burning Womple questions.
A Womple is a yeti-like creature from Antarctica. Frozen for millennia and thawed only recently when an ice shelf broke away from the continent, Womples have an unquenchable thirst for exploration and adventure. They've missed out on thousands of years of fun and and now they're ready to travel and see the world - and they're looking for like-minded explorers to share their experiences with!
We came across the wonderful word coddiwomple and couldn't pass up an opportunity to spread it's awesomeness:
Coddiwomple (verb) - to travel in a purposeful manner towards an unknown destination.
We think that pretty much sums us up! At Womple Studios, we believe in the value of wandering and exploration. No one knows where they'll end up, but the best way to get anywhere worthwhile is to experience the world and learn all about what it has to offer.
Each month is a new adventure to a unique place in the world!
Your kid will receive a WompleBox every month with tales of travel adventures as their Womple pen pal explores the world: full-length, illustrated, early-reader books, interactive fold-out maps & country guides, custom stickers, themed craft activities with all the materials* your child needs (enough to share between 2 kids) and easy-to-follow instructions, collectible items to remind them of the journey, and sneak-peeks of the next month's destination.
* everything you need is included EXCEPT scissors & glue
Check out our Subscription page for pricing details. Taxes and shipping are automatically calculated at checkout.
There's no "rule" for what's appropriate for your child. All kids are different, and you know yours better than anyone. We also think adults will learn more than a thing or two from our products!
That said, WompleBox is designed especially for, and kid-tested by, children ages 6 to 11. For kids on the younger side, we encourage parents to read the books and do the crafts & activities with their kids. For kids on the older side, we've written the materials and designed the crafts to be fun and understood without parental supervision.
We take kids to some of the most amazing, off-the-beaten-path places in the world. WompleBox gives kids an authentic view of a place, not just a set of facts about a country. Some examples of the unique places we travel to include:
- Rapa Nui (aka Easter Island)
- Xi'an, China (home of the Terracotta Warriors)
- Ometepe, Nicaragua (a volcanic island in the middle of a giant lake)
- Komodo Island, Indonesia (to visit with the famous Komodo dragons)
- Reykjavik, Iceland (including a journey around the coast of the island)
- The Serengeti in Tanzania (to witness the great wildebeest migration)
- New Zealand (to visit a bird sanctuary, hike along one of the Great Walks, and see a rugby match)
We make every effort to be environmentally conscious. That's why we use recyclable cardboard and paper for our boxes and printed materials, soy vegetable oil-based inks to print our stories, and why our "plastic" packaging is made from plant-based PLA and certified compostable.
No matter where you are in the U.S., shipping is $5 flat.
Right now, we only ship within the U.S. (including U.S. territories and APO addresses). But we're working on expanding our reach, so keep checking in!

Automatic renewal is when the subscription of your product automatically renews just before it expires so you don't have to keep buying the same thing over and over again. Your subscription ends when you cancel it. Like Netflix!
WompleBox subscriptions automatically renew. That means that if you buy a 1-month subscription, your kid will keep getting WompleBox every month and you will be charged the price of a 1-month subscription every month. If you buy a 3-month subscription, your kid will keep getting WompleBox every month and you will be charged the price of a 3-month subscription every 3 months.
We'll always give you a heads up before your subscription is renewed.
With a WompleBox subscription, you're charged the day you make your purchase AND on a recurring basis on the 15th of the month on which your subscription term ends. For example, if you purchase a 3-month subscription on June 12, you'll be charged for 3 months on that day, and then you will be charged for the next 3-month term on September 15, and for the next 3-month term on December 15, and so on.
You can see and manage all your WompleBox subscriptions by logging into your account or by clicking here: Customer Portal. Once logged in, follow the links for "Order Schedule", and "Subscriptions" to view pricing and upcoming renewal dates.
Great! If you purchased a WompleBox subscription, it will automatically renew at the end of each term. For example, if you purchased a 6-month subscription, it will automatically renew for another 6 months at the end of the first 6-month term. If you purchased a 3-month subscription, it will automatically renew for another 3 months at the end of the first 3-month term.
Absolutely!

Every monthly WompleBox is designed to be shareable by 2 kids. Each craft activity includes enough material to make 2 complete crafts, and WompleBox adventures make great stories to read aloud together or on your own.
