So before opening our first box I googled the lady featured. I had never heard of her and only was able to find a little bit of information without looking too hard. Then we opened the box. It come with REAL scissors and safety goggles. The book included has quite a long story!!! We are looking to add this to our home-school Social Studies Curriculum and I have changed my subscription from monthly to 12 months so are never without a wonderful female role model to look up to.
I'm absolutely thrilled with this crate! I subscribed for my daughter, who is 3 years old. She gets super excited when it comes each month. We have both loved reading the stories of the amazing women that have been featured, and the activities are very engaging. She role plays for days that she is the woman highlighted. I love seeing her get into character! While she is too young for some of the activities, I have easily adapted them as needed. I've been extremely impressed with the thought that goes into each crate and the quality of materials. It is well worth the cost. I would highly recommend subscribing.
I have a gaggle of granddaughters from 4-8 who come together to learn about powerful women. Having a crate available to do with them is a grandmother's super power.
We are SO impressed with our first crate! We ordered it for our daughter's fifth birthday, and she and I are enjoying learning together. Everyone at her birthday party thought it looked really fun too!
I got this for my 4 year old god daughter. The first one was all anout art. She loved it and wanted to do everything in one day... there were so many different activities and it comes with EVERYTHING you need which is awesome.
I can't begin to tell you the quality of the items in this box...They teach us historical events geography math science experiments ways to encourage our girls to achieve by boosting their confidance through knowledge.
The quality of the materials included are superb. You need a whole month to dive into all tbe materials they included in the work book.
My grand daughters were inspired to create and learn and so was I....I will be a long term Girls Can Crate subsciber.
I was happy to see and hear how excited my daughter was when she worked on each activity. At the end I loved the way she kept talking about what she had learned and was so excited to want to share this new knowledge with others. This crate definitely inspired her to want to learn more about what germs are how they are spread. She now expresses interest in becoming a doctor. Thank you for your dedication and hard work in empowering our girls.
Very underwhelmed by the package my granddaughter received. There was NO crate, just an envelope with some stuff about firefighters, including a not clearly readable story about women firefighters and a simplistic experiment involving bottles. Extremely overpriced if you pay the full amount. Hope the next delivery has an actual box and better materials inside. WMara
We're sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your mini-mailer. To clarify, you did purchase a mini-mailer and not a crate -- our mailers are smaller versions of our original crates, which is why you received a padded envelope as opposed to a box. Our mini-mailers come with the GIRLS CAN! activity book, 1 hands-on STEAM activity (in the Gutsy Firefighter mini-mailer you received, this was the fire "tornado" vortex activity with the bottles, vortex connector, and dye), tips for parents/adults on how to foster that month's featured trait in their kiddo, and a collectible sticker. I'm sorry to hear that you don't feel this warrants the cost of $18.50 (which includes $4.50 in shipping). If you'd like to upgrade your subscription to...
My daughter absolutely loved her crate. As a father of a young girl I want her to know that she really can be anything she wants to be. I want to start inspiring her with role models that will help her know that it is possible. This box did all of that. She had so much fun reading the story (the activity book alone is like a great, stand alone book!) and doing the activities inside which were also educational. I've also loved learning about each new woman with her these past few months.
I, as an adult woman (one is never to old to be inspired and empowered!), ordered a Girls Can! Crate for myself because I wanted to see what they were all about. And wow, did I enjoy! The crate arrived in the mail very soon after ordered, and was exciting to receive. The contents impressed me so! I was blown away by the incredible factual and interesting story telling in the activity book. Plus the graphics are real eye catching, interesting to look at, and the activities were fun to engage. The crate also came with several activities to create and paint (as this box featured 3 female artists), along with ALL of the supplies needed to do so. They sure got my creative juices flowing! I don't yet have a daughter, only a baby boy, but if I did then I'd sure subscribe monthly for her. For now, I may just have to continue to do so for myself, and perhaps even one day for my son! This box is definitely worth what I paid. Hats off to all of the creative gurus of Girls Can! Crates for a job WELL done!
