Kiwi Crate is a subscription box for children ages 3-8. It arrives every month with all the materials and instructions needed to complete 2-3 crafts centered around a theme, plus additional materials to help educate young learners! This is still my seven-year-old son’s favorite box!

Kiwi Crate kindly sent us this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Kiwi Crate Subscription Box Review December 2015 - theme

This month’s theme is “Arcade”! Kiwi Crate always knows the themes that will most interest the kids!

Kiwi Crate Subscription Box Review December 2015 - explore

Every month, Kiwi Crate includes a copy of explore! magazine. My son loves this magazine! He always wants to try all of the activities in it, and it also has some cute comics and short articles that are perfect for his reading level.

Kiwi Crate Subscription Box Review December 2015 - project

This month’s projects are “THE CLAW” and pom pom prizes! The Claw is an obsession with my seven-year-old! These are the instructions. I’m still getting used to Kiwi Crate’s new printed format, but I have found their instructions to consistently be clear and comprehensive.

These are the supplies that were provided. Everything was included that we needed for both projects except some scissors.

Kiwi Crate Subscription Box Review December 2015 - arcade

This is our completed “arcade”! On the left is THE CLAW, which actually works really well and could easily be used to pick up things around the house without beding over. It has a strong grip! On the right are the pom-pom prizes, which are super cute!

Verdict: This was probably my son’s favorite month of Kiwi Crate ever! THE CLAW is his favorite game of all times. There’s a local restaurant we go to that has a THE CLAW machine, and it turns out my younger son has “the magic touch” and rarely goes home empty-handed. So he was thrilled at the prospect of getting to practice at home with his own THE CLAW game! The project really came together nicely for us, too. As I’ve said before, if you have a child in this age range, I think Kiwi Crate is about the best $20 per month you can spend.
