We’ve subscribed to this set for nearly a year and it’s been a huge hit in our house. Our daughter started when she was 6 and is now 7. She’s usually occupied with each kit for a couple days in thirty minute blocks, digging and organizing. She’s still young, so she’s not yet as interested in the wonderful, informative cards and resources the kits include. But she carefully stores the specimens and binder pages away, so she’ll have them later if she gets interested in them. The variety is great, and she always finds a lot of things. Very creative and fun kit! We also subscribe to building and art kits, and this one adds great variety. Shopping has always been totally reliable. Our daughter likes sensory stimulation too, and this keeps her really engaged and focused.
We’ve subscribed to this kit for nine months and it’s always a big hit! Even some of the toys that I think aren’t going to connect well with our kid manage to find their way I to the rotation of activities at some point. My daughter (7) loves to open this box each month and explores everything once quickly before landing on a couple favorites. Some months includes games and art kits which have been really great and give a little variety to the packs for long-time subscribers. They all comes with a detailed explanation that helps me give her ideas about what else she can try with each toy. Reliable shipping and very popular in our house.
