This has been a great box for my family. I have 4 kids of all ages and they have all enjoyed the activities in different manners. The box contents are of very high quality and there is enough to keep the kids occupied for days if not weeks. That was a very nice surprise for us after we have had some unfortunate experiences with other boxes. The first box comes with a very nice passport to keep track of countries, scratch off map of the world, a backpack that can be colored on (a little on the younger side) and a 3D puzzle of a globe that looks amazing once done and it even spins. The recipes are great to do as a family - we actually started making home made bread since this box and we have all enjoyed learning fun facts from around the world. Give it a try! I promise you it will live up to the expectation and provide your family with lots of entertainment. The creators of this box have done an amazing job thinking through everything.
