I am so impressed by KiwiCo’s crates, and recently got both of my boys set up with a subscription. I got the Koala Crate for my 3-year-old and the Kiwi Crate for my 6-year-old. I read so many great Kiwi Crate Reviews and knew we wanted to try this one out. I had previously tried Koala Crate with my older son when he was a toddler, and it was such a unique and original box that he loved. Just by taking a peek inside these boxes I could tell these are going to be a lot of fun. I’ll have another post in a week or so on how all of our projects turned out.

The Kiwi Crate box first comes with a fun magazine for kids with even more activities, plus an instruction guide for the main activities inside the box. This month’s box is all “arcade” themed. We’ll be making our own claw machine claw and little puffy pom prizes. That’s a little STEM learning and crafting right there in the two main projects.
The box includes all of the supplies needed for these two projects to be done.
Then, the magazine has more fun arcade adventures and project ideas using stuff you probably have laying around at home.
There are so many extras in the magazine, you’d have activities for the whole month. Plus, some of the games can be used over and over.
Like I mentioned I’m just so impressed by these boxes. I love things that are fun for my kids but also have that learning component included as well. Summer is a great time to get these boxes, that way your kiddo is still learning and staying sharp until the next school year.
UPDATE: We finished the projects in this box- to see how they turned out, check out that post, here!
Be sure to keep a lookout for future Kiwi Crate reviews here on the blog, and also check out our Koala Crate review for preschoolers.
Kiwi Co has several box options for kids of all ages, including the Tadpole Crate for ages 0-36 months, the Koala Crate for ages 3-4, the Kiwi Crate for ages 5-8, the Atlas Crate for ages 6-11, Doodle Crate for ages 9-16, Tinker Crate for ages 9-16, and the Eureka Crate for ages 14-104. They each have a different purpose from art to science, engineering, geography and culture, and literacy/reading.
You might also like my reviews of The Story Box– our favorite book subscription box for kids. The books we’ve gotten from them have been some of my boys’ favorites for years. We need to replenish our book supply, so I’ve also resubscribed us to this box, too. We’ll be getting the picture book subscription, but you can also get board books, or a mixed box with one picture book and one board book. Perfect if you have an older child and a baby or toddler.
