Lelu: The Spanish + STEAM Subscription
We love subscription boxes! We love them even more when they are fun, educational, and promotes language learning.
STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math - Lelu is the perfect Spanish + STEAM subscription box your nenes will need to develop their language learning in specific academic content areas.
Lelu is geared for nenes ages 3-11. Each box is filled with 4 main activities, monthly calendar of thematic activities, and access to instructional videos.
We came across Lelu recently when we purchased one of their games "Lotería del Cuerpo Humano" I personally loved that it was a game that my children were already familiar with - with an academic component! It was filled with Spanish content vocabulary such as: El System Muscular, La Barbilla, El Hígado among so many others. We played with actual frijoles (included in the box) just like we play the traditional lotería. Learning as we played.
We enjoyed our time playing and learning together that we decided to enroll in Lelu's "Silver" subscription. I was already trying to find science based Spanish content - having a subscription made it perfect.

Families have a choice of 3 types of subscriptions: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
Silver (the one we chose) comes with everything necessary for the activities based on the same theme, calendar of activities, and access to pre-recorded content for use of the materials and activity completion. I felt this was a right fit for us since we already do escuelita at home and I could implore my teaching techniques with my nenes, and was familiar with all the Spanish language vocabulary.
Gold (Lelu's most popular option) includes everything from the Silver option PLUS weekly virtual 1:1 tutoring sessions - a total of 2 hours per month. This allows nenes to have personalized attention and content interaction at their developmental level.
Platinum: Includes the 30 minute weekly 1:1 tutoring AND a 30 minute weekly community meeting! This option is perfect for peer collaboration and even more Spanish practice.
This allows flexibility for families to find a subscription level that best meets the needs of the nenes.
My favorite material is the pre-planned monthly calendar. It helps my planning and prepping for our daily activities. I can pick or have my nenes choose an activity from the month long list.
The Founder & CEO
Meet Ana Leyva! She is also a parent raising bilingual children and created Lelu out of need. Need to find rich learning materials in Spanish with an added component of interaction and growing within a supportive community.
All in all, I highly recommend trying out Lelu. As a mother and teacher I love sharing all the resources we find useful and of value when it comes to learning in Spanish while embracing parent-child meaningful interaction & play.
