Instructional kits for early childhood

Economies of scale help learning kits hit their target — on budget


A leading provider of early childhood solutions created a product that efficiently integrated all essential elements of a curriculum — e.g., print materials and manipulatives (e.g., blocks, tape measures, puppets) — into an instructional kit. However, the packaging, kitting, and delivery of this entire product proved too complex.


RRD’s vantage point facilitated economies of scale. Our global network sourced manipulatives, supported on-demand print needs, and manufactured all other facets of the instructional kits. This would effectively align the kits’ cost with target budgets.


In a span of 10 days, RRD fulfilled and delivered 2,555 instructional kits — each containing 35 components — to more than 800 locations.
