Q: My 11 year old grandson is super intelligent. Loves National Geographic. This box looks amazing but I wonder if it might not be age appropriate for himAsked by Christine W., November 2019
No. It was great for my 8 year old maybe aged 11 at a push. But if he is as smart as you say he'll find it a bit babyish. I would expect at KS3 level it's all information he should of gained anyway.
It IS a fabulous resource but just for KS2. No higher.
Q: Is the history just for Great Britain or do they learn American history?Asked by Jane S., September 2019
We cover a range of topics from world history. They are:
WW2 and evacuees in Britain
American Wild West
Hope this helps!
Q: What's the difference between the Classic Pack and Bumper Box? Thanks!Asked by Fahey, May 2019
you can see it in their website. I am not allowed to post the link
This was for my granddaughters & they loved every single month of this subscription! I wish there were more!
The best subscription-box we ever had! Enjoyed it every month,we hope there would be more topics add soon, we can not wait :)
I never got my box!
The box is designed to look like a time machine, but unfortunately it doesn’t have those properties built in!
We ship from the UK and it usually takes about 5-7 working days to arrive in the US (but sometimes up to 10, depending on your local post or adverse weather conditions etc). I have checked your account and can see your box was shipped on 23rd January, which was only 5 days before your review.
Please be patient – it’s on its way! If it still hasn’t arrived by Monday 3rd February, please email us (email address is on our website) and we will check again. We pride ourselves on our customer satisfaction and am confident you will love your adventures through...
I have gone through all 12 boxes and can't wait for them to develop more boxes! We will purchase them for sure! I have been using the boxes to homeschool my 7 and 10-year-old. ( I add a little more for my 10 years old) They beg for their History lessons and are able to remember the lessons months later, so it is really sticking with the fun stories.
Absolutely amazing!! Worth so much more than you pay for. I'm still in shock over how well this box is put together & how much you get to enjoy for the cost. I'm constantly annoyed that US subscription services are more spendy & less desirable than UK ones. I'll find amazing boxes such as this. Then I find they don't ship to the US or they charge insane shipping. This box is cheaper even with shipping. Than most US boxes in the same category. It's by far better quality, better duration, & better value for the money. This box is in a league of it's own. This mom is thrilled to see the excitement in my 8yr old as she discovers all this box has to offer. Two👍👍!!
One happy Mum here its so worth the money, my son and i really enjoyed mystery in time and we are learning together . Thank you so much!
My daughter really loved getting the Time Machine boxes. We would spend our whole day completing one and then add on our own extensions during the week (Home Ed)
Great topics, helped us focus on a theme (History is just so vast, obviously!, and we appreciated the assistance in guiding us through some interesting eras)
We had the "extra bits" box and that helped too as an extra incentive and interest.
We love it! It is so worth the money. My son is enjoying and asking to do it. Very happy mom!
My son (age 6) absolutely loves this boxes, which are so well put together - great books, crafts and gifts (in the bigger box). It's well worth the money. As a homeschooling family we're incredibly grateful for all the love and dedication that obviously go into Mysteries in Time. Cannot recommend highly enough!
My daughter was 9 when we began our Mysteries in Time adventure, she has loved every box. They are very well made, educational and fun! We can't wait to see if there are going to be more topics in the future. We would recommend these boxes, they're so much fun to do and good to keep, for future reading, and school projects.
