My daughter received this box as part of Camp Cratejoy, and it was her favorite box. It is packed with great experiments and tons of ideas for activities. She was able to do many of the activities on her own, and she wants to do many of them again. All of the materials were included and the science behind the activities is explained. I am going to sign her up for a subscription.
My 8 year old daughter loved the box she received. She did almost all of the experiments in one day! She learned about the deep ocean waters and really enjoyed all of it. We ordered more boxes and I am excited for her to learn more. Thank you for being so thoughtful in the creation of these boxes. Very creative and fun.
We absolutely loved this box! My son had a great time doing the experiments and found it to be a lot of fun. As a parent, I found it to have the right amount of education combined with fun, to make it a good box for him.
This box was wonderful! Hands down favorite. Saving Our Oceans......The box comes with multiple different experiments. Came neatly packed with almost all materials, additional simple materials needed are standard home items: measuring spoons, water everything else was provided in the box. Also comes with a Lab Notebooks, detailed step by step instructions of each experiment, a small stuffed animal. We made bioplastic, did an experiment on packing peanuts: comparing biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials, preformed a nature project on Ocean Light Zones and the creatures that inhabit them. This one came with three glass bottles that once the experiment was done makes a nice keepsake. There are several other experiments still to do and I look forward to working through them with my son too. It's an excellent introduction to science vocabulary, too! Well done.
One of my favorite subscription boxes out there. All materials are included and it is easy to follow. Experiments are fun and my son loves doing them. I recommend it 100%
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.
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 :)
Well worth the price! Definitely a box to get for young learners!
Loved it! Can not wait for the next one
This is such a neat box! So much fun for kids and parents to do together. I was impressed by the entire box! Love this! Keep it up!!!
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.
My 5 year old loved her last box! We did all but 1 experiment the day it arrived. Looking forward to next month. Great way to spend a cold winter day learning and bonding with your child.
My 8 year old grandson loves these science kits. I am extending his subscription.

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.
