7 shipments in.....

by Katie C., Mar 13, 2019

We are 7 shipments into the total 13 (including the intro box) and we love it! So I have to confess though that I bought this for my 5 year old daughter (she was 4 when we signed up) even though it is rated for age 7+, she has done fantastic with every box though. We have had a ton of fun learning new skills outside, and putting those new skills to action on hikes or while camping. I love this box! I might even sign up to have the year of boxes all over again....

Great idea but

by Holly E., Mar 09, 2019

I purchased a three month subscription for my very outdoor adventurous son. Box arrived and He said the book was cool looking, but when he opened it He was very underwhelmed. The main part of the box was a backpack. The other pieces in the Box were a piece rope, a luggage tag, a pencil, two pamphlets and a metal tag holder. It did not make a very good first impression on my son, Hopefully the next two boxes are better.

My brother in-law got this for my 12 yr old son and he absolutely loves them. The first box came with a great backpack and we have been steadily filling it up with gear since. The boxes just keep blowing me away! The gear is great for my son to get exposed to using these tools and the educational booklets are filled with fun activities and I find them very educational. We are a farm family, outside a lot, and still learn something from them. Keep it up Think Outside!

Ok so far

by Lora S., Oct 18, 2018

This is our first box ,which took awhile to get compared to others ,and it seemed a little pricey for what you get. It’s just an ok backpack and some cords and a little activity brochure with good information but not worth $35. I like the concept though so I will wait to see what comes next month,

Kids are diggin it!

by Brandon W., Jul 13, 2018

Both of our kids got their first box and have really enjoyed digging into the skills and some of the trivia included in the book. Their favorite part of the box was the compact backpack! They're really looking forward to using it for some hiking and travel this summer, fall, and beyond!

So cool!

by Riley, Jul 10, 2018

My Aunt surprised me with this subscription and I love it! The pink backpack in the first box is really cool and light, and the activities are a lot of fun. I can't wait to get the next box!

My 14 year old son loves his first box! He’s even asked to go hiking more now that he’s started building his hiking gear! An unbelievable alternative to sitting inside playing videos/watching screens all day!

We just got our first box and we love it! High quality, my kids had to test it out as soon as we got it. I love all of the outdoor and survival activities included, this will keep us entertained for awhile. I can't wait to see what's in the next box!
