Horrible customer service. Will not buy from why and whale ever again

So perfect and cute. Gender neutral for my boy and girl and they can share and not fight.

Great items but already own

I love this concept but I’m getting doubles of what i already own I wish there was a checklist of things we already own

Four items, nothing like the boxes used to be

I used to order the mystery boxes for my youngest daughter years ago and thought I’d give them a try again for my new grandson. The box value was nothing like what I had received before, which is a big disappointment. I know the site says $150 worth - but it’s $150 worth of stuff that weren't great sellers to begin with - and to make things worse, I could’ve bought them all for 30% off their marked prices in the website, making the actual value of my box a mere $105 - which is practically the same as the cost to buy the box to begin with (but I could have picked items I liked instead). We received a Bajo Snail Sortroller (neat!), Wee Gallery Bugs Wooden Tray Puzzle (okay but already overpriced to begin with), Konges musical pull toy walrus (not something I would have purchased), and Dinky Dinkins Sweet Treats Sadie Sprinkles (darker skin doll dressed in fuchsia outfit - would be more suitable for a girl so I’ll end up giving this away to someone else who will better appreciate it). And that was it. 🙈 I bought a box for age 1-2 years (gender not specified). The boxes I used to get were much more interesting and fuller and the values on them actually ranged from $200-250 (those were the days - one of my pictures is still being used to demonstrate on the listing 🫤). I probably won’t buy another one of these, which is disappointing because they used to be so fun to get.

Curious George

This one is a favorite.


Not the favorite

I can’t get enough

Happen to find this play forever care a little cheaper than other sites - plus lot of other whimsical toys to pick from. The car is excellent and a favorite, runs straight and smooth. The best car brand I’ve found.

It’s not love

They actually don’t fit well in my toddler’s hands, would not buy again.

Mystery toy

Sent the perfect mystery toy!

We ordered a playforever car and got a Holztiger buffalo. I can only assume they actually looked at our profile, being from Buffalo NY. The perfect thing was we have over 50 wooden animals but didn’t have a buffalo. It was the sweetest surprise and made me fall in love with the Why and Whale store.

Sturdy and fast

Love it and need more!!


Such a beautiful addition to the doll house, adds a cute cozy vibe. It fits for some of my daughter’s other toys so she’s found other great ways to use it as well, so I love that!

Excellent quality!! Perfect for my daughters disco birthday party theme!

Love this Pete Tonie! My kids are obsessed

Came a long way to me!

Well packaged and loved the bespoke tape! So cute. Arrived like it had come from local supplier

Prince Mouse, Big Brother
Such a handsome prince

I love the quality of Maileg, this little brother is so darling. His clothes are very well made and it is fun for my daughter to have a little prince to play with her Princess and the Pea Mouse and other mice friends. Why and Whale has been a favorite shop of ours for years.

Baby Bunny Pilot Cap
Sweet Bunny Pilot Cap

My 3-month-old grandson looked an absolute sweetheart in this headgear. It’s a winner!

Unnecessary extra charge

Specifically asking about package protection, I felt like it was just an extra charge to get more money and completely unnecessary for what I was ordering.

First Month

This was our first month with the subscription and we have been so happy with the toys we received!! She is still a little young but we love stacking them up and knocking them down. Such amazing quality and so fun seeing which animals we got!

Security is best!

I’ve never had to use this but it gives me peace of mind knowing I have it, just in case.
