Q: I am getting a 3 month gift subscription of Little Workbox and am wondering if I order now (November 21) will it be the Nov box or the Dec one and will the second one be shipped in Dec or Jan? ThanksAsked by Debbie W., November 2020
Hi Debbie, if you order on Nov.21, we will ship the first box in 3 days and ship the second box on Jan. 1st. Hope it helps.
Well I did order the first box Nov 21 and the second one shipped the first week of Dec!! So....hope it's not a duplicate.
Q: Are there enough supplies for 2 people to use one subscription box?Asked by Allan G., September 2020
Each month you will get a box that has 2-3 projects connected to a specific STEM theme. It is perfect for two kids collaborating on those challenging projects.
Q: What is the suggested age range for this subscription?Asked by Allan G., September 2020
Our projects are designed for ages 8+. Younger kids may need some help like handling small screws etc.
Q: When is my subscription billed?Asked by Allan G., September 2020
Subsequent subscriptions are billed on the 1st day of each month.
My niece loved it. It’s really hard to find building projects for girls that are challenging. Wish they made more options for girls.
My 10 year old daughter LOVES it and colors the wooden pieces before she puts it together. It's all so very well made. 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏
My daughter really enjoyed. There are three awesome and quality projects in the box. Highly recommend!
My 9 year old had a blast filming himself opening his box and putting all 3 of his robots together. He spent approximately 4 hours total on the projects, then over an hour playing with the robots and racing them across the kitchen.
He did need some help with some of the fidgetier steps but after several failed attempts at subscription boxes for screen free educational fun, I think we finally found the one that will hold his interest.
This box was exactly what we were looking for for our little 6 y/o tinker. The recommended age is over 8, but we took a chance and we’re not disappointed. With quality supplies, easy to follow instructions and a little help from mom or dad, the projects are ones our little boy is very proud of.
My son (7 almost 8), loves the Little Workboxes so far. He has received 2 boxes so far with 5 total projects. We have worked together to make 3 out of the 5 projects and all the projects have kept him intrigued and excited to see his project work. He is also excited that it is something we do together. I bought a 6 month subscription for him for Christmas.
Ordered this little workbox as a Christmas gift for my friend's kids. They were thrilled with those projects included!
Got a 3-month subscription for our almost 7-yr old daughter who loves to build, and she was ecstatic when she opened the first box! She got 3 simple robots to build, and HAD to build the crawl bot on the first night. She's trying to patiently space out building the others so she can share and show them to her best friend. Only minor issue we had was the quality of the double-sided tape provided - it wasn't strong enough for holding the battery pack to the body of the robot, so we improvised. She was definitely proud of herself after building the first robot and is excited to build the other robots and see what projects she gets in future boxes.
Such a great subscription box.I wasn’t planning on starting a subscription but I was so impressed.They really are fun projects for kids and very good price!Customer service is great as well.I highly recommend!
I had a great experience dealing with a shipping issue caused by my information. The Little Workbox took care of it right away ! Very satisfied customer ! Will return 😊
You will make three robots using Electric motors! Electric motors are one of the most fascinating inventions of the twentieth century. Electromagnetism is one of the most important forces that we know of in physics. You can use magnets to induce an electric field by causing electrons to move around, and when electricity flows, a magnetic field is created around it! This principle is used to create electric motors.
Project 1: A vacuum cleaner uses an electric motor that spins a fan and creates a region of low pressure inside its pipe, and the outside air pushes dust and dirt into the pipe. Project 2: Propeller produces lift in a forward direction. Its rotary motion through the air creates a difference in air pressure between the front and back surfaces of its blades. Project 3: Sunlight contains energy. Solar powered fans harness sunlight to generate electricity to power the motor.
Project 1: Batteries are composed of two different metals suspended in an acidic solution. In the Fruit-Power Battery, the two metals used are zinc and copper. The acid comes from the citric acid inside a fruit. Project 2: This Hand Crank Generator project demonstrates the conversion of mechanical energy to electrical energy. Project 3: Buzz Wire Game. The aim is to guide the grip mounted loop through the wire maze without touching the loop against the metal maze.
