Q: What is the age range for this box? I want to find a subscription box for my 4 year old niece; although she's young, she's pretty advanced and doesn't enjoy "normal" 4 year old things.Asked by Molly M., July 2019

Wonder Crate answered...July 2019

We recommend ages 6-12 but it depends

My kiddo is into the subscription boxes and we are trying out many of them to see which ones are keepers. Here’s what we think about the wonder crate jr box for 5 to 7 year olds.

- really like the idea behind the crate. What differentiates it from other craft and learning crates is that you focus on learning about one innovator/notable figure

- excellent quality book included. Kiddo sat through in one reading and we re read it again. She learned a lot

- fosters the type of values that my family wants to encourage (so true what the creator says about social media and entertainment begin the focus of what mainstream media wants for our kids!)

- kiddo really enjoyed making her dream catcher which was a cute craft paired with the crate

- came with pamphlet highlighting points about the figure featured

- a new pencil - and yes somehow kids like pencils

- and a small booklet with activities but that didn’t hold my kiddo’s attention much

I think it’s a fun box and I’m glad we subscribed. It feels a bit costly for what you get in the junior box but we would subscribe with a discount and/or a longer subscription period to cut down on price.

It is a great box to complement other of my kid’s favorite boxes and I’d recommend it !!

My daughter loves these books, so a subscription WITH them was definitely a hit in this house! We received Who was Marie Curie first. She reads them a little bit each day before school and had to finish before we do the activities (that's our deal with each other). Magnetic Putty is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. We're pretty obsessed with it now! The mindfulness cards that came with the Dalai Lama have already been a major help for everyone in the family. What a smart thing to send to little ones to learn coping mechanisms at such a young age! Can't wait for our 3rd book. Silly me though, I re-ordered 3 more months while still having a month left, I hope they see it and send 2 different books. If not, my fault I guess and I'll gift it.

Seriously though, money well spent here. We're all very happy!

My 5-year old daughter loved the items in her Wonder Crate. They were age-appropriate and challenging, but not too frustrating. The puzzle ball is a great toy to keep her busy for a long car trip or waiting at the doctor's office and encourages problem solving. The game was fast pace and fun while she was learning math skills (but didn’t even know it). The book explained a growth mindset in terms that she understood and there was even a section for parents. The online lesson was a great way to reinforce the concepts in the book and the lunch box notes are a nice daily reminder for her. I feel like we've both learned a lot and have gotten our money's worth.

Not what I was expecting

My 6 year old struggled with this box. It was slightly advanced for him. Also, I was under the impression that they would receive a cape and badge which he did not receive.

Disappointed by my first crate.

I am sorry to hear that you are disappointed. We used to have a box that was for younger kids that came with a cape but we haven't had that series in over a year. Where did you get that information from (so we can update it)? Our current product is recommended for ages 7-11 and introduces kids to a new inspirational role model each month with a book from the Who Was book series and fun hands-on activities.

We look forward to our Wonder Crate deliveries. My 7 and 9 year old boys love the interactive game and crafts in each box. Our favorite is reading about these inspirational children making a difference in our world. My boys have gathered and donated their lightly used books to Read Indeed, after learning about the organization in their Wonder Crate box. It's helped them realize that they play an important role in our society and they can make a difference. Please keep inspiring our future generations.
P.S.- Wonder Crate makes for great birthday gifts. We have gotten positive feedback from the families we have gifted to.

Love it!!

My five year old daughter was so excited when her first Wonder Crate arrived. The packaging is adorable and she immediately put on her cape as she began to look through her box. She loved the rainbow ball and could not wait to bring it to school as her "Share item". She had been working with her teacher on trying to "step out of her comfort zone" when school felt hard for her and this month's theme was a perfect fit for her. She responded so well to the growth mindset concept and could not wait to share what she was doing at home with her kindergarten teacher. I felt like the book, the print outs and the online lesson gave me the tools as a mom to help guide her to feel more confident and adventuresome academically, and in so many other areas of life. Thank you so much for developing such a well thought out, creative product for both parents and children.

Wonder Create has been great at helping me teach my daughter about the importance of effort. She can give up easily and I really wanted to get her a gift that helps her understand how persistence pays off. She loves the toys in the box and plays with the puzzle ball A LOT. The book was perfect for her age (8 years old) in explaining how she really can get better at anything she practices. I've seen a change in the way she looks at new challenges and I am so grateful. Thank you.

A refreshing alternative to the traditio

My 7 year old received a Wonder Crate as recent birthday gift and she loved it. Lately everything seems to peak her curiosity and all the items in this box intrigued her. The Bubblegum Brain book was a hit and we enjoyed playing countless rounds of the Blink game. We love it because each game literally only takes a minute or so, so nobody gets bored. The lunch box notes were a big hit for both of us. Would highly recommend putting Wonder Crate on your short list of future gift ideas.

An absolutely perfect gift

I bought Wonder Crate for my grandchildren as a Christmas gift and can't wait for them to receive it. It will be a perfect box of activities to do together when I come over to babysit. I love how the items in the box teach real world skills they will need for the rest of their lives. I love that growth mindset is the first box and can't wait to see what other skills are introduced to them through out the year.
