when we received our first box, I sent a email to them, about everything we enjoyed but to let them know of a pencil that was missing ( may not seem like a big deal, but to alittle it is) and an issue we had with a battery. Not only did he respond in a timely matter he sent us a whole new extra box! I was only expecting to get the pencil and new battery replaced. That is going above and beyond! I and my son are extremely pleased! I totally would recommend if you have a kiddo into science/STEM this would be a great box for them to enjoy! So much to do and learn!
My nephew got 4 boxes and he loves them. He is loves them
My 6 year old son is just getting into all things science so when I found this subscription I wanted to give it a try. It was a huge hit! He loved it! And getting a new box each month was icing on the cake.
I think ot was alot of fun i loved everything about it and so did my family. I can't wait to get the next one. - a review from my 11 yo son😍
The box was ok but the experiments are too easy for our 8 year old son. And I do not like the fact we have to provide a lot of the stuff to do the experiments, our daughter's box comes with everything she needs for hers. If it was a little cheaper or included more stuff I may have given it longer but it is just not worth the money for us. I would recommend for kids maybe 5 or 6 -8 or ones who do not have a lot of experience with science and engineering.

I just received my first box I purchased for my 8 year old son for Xmas and I love it! I didn't realize so many experiments came in the box! Surprises came inside too and they were awesome, I know my son will love it and I can't wait to see what December has on store :)
I spent a lot of time evaluating the best educational subscriptions for my kids, 5 and 8, as a supplement to their education. I really loved the idea behind Scikids and decided to spring for the price along with the cheaper kiwi box. I am a professional scientist with a doctorate in pharmacology and this box blew me away! I loved the variety in the welcome box, amazing experiments from hatching and studying brine shrimp, growing plants to study roots to building a small moving toothbrush bug robot that lights loup to getting to polish and examine millions of years! In addition, there were petrified dishes, pipettes, everything you could need for all the experiments, education content, a great scientist journal and lab notebook with terrific formulas and other treats, there was even a cool robot eraser, crystal. The kids and I loved all of it.
My grandson is 8 and loves the box. Has been looking forward to its contents every month. I understand from his dad that he needs help with some of the projects contained in the box. I know an 8 year old was at the lower age for the projects but enjoys them a lot.
I bought this subscription for my 8 year-old- nephew and he absolutely loves it. There are some great experiments, along with a craft and a surprise, each month. The manual that comes with the box not only has explanations and facts for the experiments they are providing in the box but there are also plenty of extension activities, that they can do at their own pace throughout the month. If you have a little scientist in your house, definitely check this out.
