This box is filled with multiple activities that all work together to teach a theme. I ordered it for my 4 year old and it was a little to advanced for her. It requires understanding of about a 2nd grader.

Updated Comment: Please note that the shipping address is provided by the customer and we copy and paste it for the shipping labels. I do believe this was a misunderstanding and the default shipping address on the order was from a previous order the customer placed, which was a sibling's name of the intended recipient.
Original Comment: We are sorry we screwed the name up on the box. We have reached out to you by email-- please send us the correct name so we can get this right! We are sorry for the mix-up and do thank you for giving Genius Box a try.
