These boxes are incredible, and the supplier is very easy to work with and flexible. They are not just for kids, as I learned a lot from them, too. Definitely reommend!
This is awesome and exactly what you'd expect! A well put together box with nice items and cards that go along with each item. Everything in the box is high quality.
I am yet to receive my box. But I wanted to warn British customers about the additional shipping fees that unfortunately, in my eyes, make it not worth it.
I subscribed month-by-month so that I could get just 1 box for my partner's birthday. That cost $39.95.
Add on shipping, and it came to $51.97.
I then received a letter this morning saying I need to pay import tax of £17.78 (roughly $22.51) before I can receive the box.
That's $74.48 for one box.
I wish I had known this before even getting the month by month subscription. It's just not worth it.
Absolutely cool little things that I enjoy. I gave away a few to family who enjoy them more, and now I'm a hero.
This is our whole family’s favorite box. We get so excited when it comes. We all open it together and spend hours with all the goodies. Then one of my daughters sets up the bookshelf display with all the past box items. Great conversation pieces! Truly special box!
My 13 year old son is an avid rock and fossil collector. I thought I had run out of gifts for his birthday after 10+ years of buying him science related kits and books. Then I discovered this product. The items in each kit have been interesting, exciting and age appropriate.
My grandson is 9 years old. He loves receiving his Matter box each month. The items are interesting and professionally presented. I have recommended this box to a lot of people.
My 14 yo nephew received this box. The boy with a murse who likes unusual “things”. I thought it would go great with his collection. It was a hit and now the rest of the crew wants one.
The things I got in here are pretty neat! If I was more into science stuff, I would most likely enjoy this more. But overall I'm pretty pleased with what I've gotten! thanks
Not your same-old-stuff you can get anywhere. Interesting, informative, and highly recommended!
This box has been an absolute delight. I’m a teacher and there are so many cool things that I share with my class. Each item is well explained and widely varied. Also, this has arrived regularly despite the pandemic, which is more than I can say for lots of other things I order online. Love it.
All the items were interesting. I liked the the note cards that explained the items.
I bought this subscription for my 8 year old son, which is a tricky age but it is a perfect fit. He loved every item (the mosasaur tooth, especially) and he's treating the included fact cards with a reverence normally reserved for Pokemon cards.
I love that these have the perfect feel of treasure that little boys love. If we lived near one, I'm sure his pockets would have baobob seeds in them, but seeing them in our box is a pretty good second.
The box is quite educational, and I think every item will grow with him and add to his collection of curiosities. Really glad I made the purchase.
My 10 year old son loves getting his box of matter. Interesting and fun items! It’s definitely sparked him to further explore all things science.
For the scientific or just curious in your family. Each box gets shared with everyone from grandparents to grandchildren and always includes lots of oohs and ahs at weekly family meetings. Highly recommend!
Release your inner nerd. This box is awesome and totally worth the price. Every month I look forward to it. Definitely recommend.
Bought for 13 year old niece- enjoyed by entire family! Nothing in there that didn’t hold their interest. They loved reading the cards about each item- it inspired them to do further research.
My teenage son LOVES this box and looks forward to it every month!
I gave my 17 year old science loving niece this box as a gift, she absolutely loved everything in it ! The curating was great!
I got this for my 75 year old Father and he loved everything in his subscription. So did all of his grandchildren. Every month we were amazed at the things that were packed in his MATTER box. He was sorry that it was only a 3-month subscription
We LOVE matter boxes! We did a 6 month subscription for our teen son last Christmas and it's #1 on his list for this year. The seller ships out just as stated, emails are sent with tracking numbers (ships fast!), and if you EVER have a question about an item in the box or wish to purchase an additional box, the seller has AMAZING communication. Because of the communication alone, we've purchased additional special past boxes, as well as ones past our original subscription. The seller makes it very easy. The items are of great quality and there is always a card explaining each item. We've recieved things from Nasa, fossils, and items we've never heard of before, but are very interesting to learn about. If you love Science, you will look forward to this every month.
Bought this box for our 11 year old son. When he opened it, he literally said "Are you going to write a review on Yelp or something like that? Because this box is really cool. Could you sign me up for more?" I actually rarely post reviews, so since he mentioned it, I thought I would. He showed me each item, and we read the cards to learn more. He especially liked the nuclear grade zirconium and the Baobab seeds. He said that the items are really special and rare not things you would get anywhere else. The box made him want to learn more about the items, and we looked some things up on the internet together. He liked telling me what he knew already or had learned about the objects. The items related to different areas of science - biology, chemistry, physics and also touched upon history and culture. Cool box - thank you and can't wait for the next one!
I absolutely loved my first box! The items were crazy awesome and with the cards that came with it made it a really fun way to learn! I will definitely subscribe to this box again to share with my younger sisters so we can all explore and learn together!
My Wife and I Love This Box, She ordered it for me because I’m into History and Fossils and I enjoy getting excited to see what cool pieces of history I’m gonna get each month. 100% Worth it.
Awesome stuff, super neat to read the cards with my husband and kids. We're planning on making a display case for all the cool items you get that show the cards behind them. So exciting everytime we get a new box!!
