Kiwi Crate quickly became one of my favorite subscription boxes for my daughter. As soon as she sees the box, she knows it is for her and cannot wait to do the craft inside.
The Cost: $19.95 a month – you can do a sibling add-on for $9.95 per child each month.
The Products: Kiwi Crate provides materials you need for 2 crafts and usually includes a small story book and a mini craft. The crates are targeted to children aged 3 – 7, but my two year old enjoys doing the crafts with my assistance. You can read my past Kiwi Crate reviews here.
I love the storybook they include in each box. It is so much fun to read through and it really sets up the theme for that particular crate.
Here is a page of the story in this month’s box.
Our two crafts were My Story Theater and My String Puppet.
My String Puppet
These are the materials for the string puppet. I tied the string to the rod and twisted the fuzzy pipe cleaner as well as did the legs. My daughter was able to do everything else. She loved the finished product and laughed every time I made him dance. Unfortunately, his head fell off within half an hour.
My Story Theater
My daughter wasn’t too amused by the theater itself. She preferred to play with the stickers and put them on the film strips. It is one of those instances where I had more fun with the main part of the project.
Thoughts: This was definitely a fun craft for us to do together. Although my daughter did not quite appreciate both crafts equally, it is not exactly a box made for her age. I know she would love it once she is a bit older. Overall, I really love Kiwi Crate for my daughter and she plays with the projects we do in this box more than any other toys I buy her. This is the one kid’s subscription box I find I recommend more than any of the others.
