The most common questions we get asked…by the adults, that is, not the kids!
Cureadosity is a picture book subscription box for children aged between 2 and 6. It was founded by Alex & Daphne, a husband and wife team keen to find interesting and representative books for their daughter.
We send you a subscription box with 3 picture books, and you can choose the frequency of which you receive it (monthly, every 2 months, or every quarter).
We only include newly released books released a maximum of 3 months prior to the shipping date so the chances of our subscribers already owning the book will be as slim as possible. Occasionally, we are also able to ship the books ahead of the release date. The books included will usually be the UK edition.
We offer a carefully curated subscription box where you will receive 3 newly released picture books, hand-picked by the Cureadosity team. Each box will include a mix of hardbacks and paperbacks.
You can choose from the following plans:
Monthly Subscription: you will receive our box of books monthly and your renewal will be charged on the first day of each month.
Bi-monthly Subscription: you will receive our box of books every 2 months and your renewal will be charged on the first day of every 2nd month.
Quarterly Subscription: you will receive our box of books quarterly (every 3 months) and your renewal will be charged on the first day of every quarter.
Boxes are not tailored to individual children; we send the same books to all our customers.
We pick a range of books that we feel will appeal to the age range we are suitable for, and will encourage your little one to read widely!
We are sorry to see you go! Before you consider cancellation, did you know you can skip a month or change your frequency instead by logging into your account?
If you really have to cancel, you can do so at any time by logging into your account. However, you will still receive any month's box you have paid for prior to your cancellation.
Pricing, Billing & Payment FAQs
Our subscription is £20 per box, plus shipping of £2.80.
Please note that all our prices are in Great British Pounds (£ / GBP).
We accept all major credit cards and debit cards through the website.
Our renewal date is the 1st of the month (so 1 January for the January box) for existing subscribers.
When you first subscribe, you will be charged up front. For example, if you subscribe on 23 January, you are charged on 23 January for the February box. Then your next renewal will depend on the frequency of your subscription :
- Monthly box: 1 March for the March box
- Bi-monthly box: 1 April for the April box
- Quarterly box: 1 May for the May box
Orders after the 8th of the month will start their subscription on the following month. For example, orders on 10 January will be for the February box.

Customer Support FAQs
If your subscription has already renewed, then we are not able to refund your current order. However, you can change your frequency, skip or cancel your next box anytime before it renews.
If you are subscribed, you can change your address for future renewals by logging into your account on our website.
However, if your order has already renewed/been paid for, you will need to request an address change by filling in our Customer Support form.
We send an email out to check your address 24 hours before boxes start being packed. Please always check your address in that email and reply to it if the address needs changing.
Please fill out our Customer Support form and we can do that for you! If you change your address in your account, this will not carry over to any orders you have paid for, only future orders.
Before we ship our boxes, we will send you an email confirming your address. If your address is incorrect, reply to that email within 24 hours to have it amended for you. If you change your address in your account at this time, your box will not be sent to the updated address. You need to reply to the email to get the address changed.
Once your box has shipped we cannot change your address and you may be charged additional shipping to have it sent to your correct address.
Sorry about that! Our packing team have quality control measures in place, but they are only human and occasionally an error is made.
If your box has a book missing, please fill out our Customer Support form within 14 days of receipt of the box and we can arrange for that missing item to be sent out to you.
No, unfortunately we are not able to process returns. We will only ship newly released books, occasionally prior to the official release date, so the likelihood is that you will not receive a book you already own.
