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: Do you ship to the USA?Asked by Whitney R., September 2020
Absolutely! We ship worldwide. Hope this helps!
My 6 year old son loves these boxes and they have really encouraged him to further develop his interest in history. He loves the stories and the craft materials are of a high standard. I hope they will soon create more boxes from other periods of history!
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.
We have now come to the end of are 12 months and me and the kids are gutted to see it end. We so hope this wonderful company brings out more adventures.
My children have loved learning all about history using this boxes and reading out max and Katie stories before bed.
We decided to get the bigger box with the craft and surprise and we was never disappointed. My 2 daughters loved it they are ages 6 and 10 and loved working together on the crafts and activities. Brilliant value for money and our boxes always arrived very fast.
Thank you for the brilliant adventures and hoping my children's minds to how wonderful learning about history can be
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👍👍!!
I LOVE this box! We decided to try this to help entertain and amuse my 2nd grader during the distance learning and it has been a hit! The stories are entertaining, the crafts are simple but fun and it packs so much information we spread it out over the week! I definitely consider this a must have for any child who loves learning about history and new places
This is such an excellent package, especially right now when we are all trying to homeschool our children. There is enough in the mystery box to provide multiple lessons about each time period, and the stickers and map really add to the interactiveness. The fiction story itself on its own is worth the subscription, but the magazine is also really engaging. We love this!
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 :)
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.
