Oyster STEAM Subscription Box – Should We Review It?

Oyster is a monthly subscription box for kids:

The world is your Oyster

We develop educational kits that help kids try different professions and learn more about themselves and the world around in the process.

All kits are made with help of professionals and rigorously tested by kids

All the kits are intended for kids 5-8 years old. Kids closer to 8 years old will be able to complete all the tasks by themselves, while younger kids will require participation from their parents.

In each Oyster you receive:

New profession every month

Role-playing fun with built-in learning

STEAM learning

Hands-on fun STEAM activities delivered to your door

Inspiration & Creativity

Encourage exploration and imaginative play

Online tests & DIY projects

Check what you’ve learned and find additional projects online

Here’s a look at a few of the kits:


  • Create unique paintings using the ebru technique
  • Draw silhouette scenery
  • Learn about great artists


  • Treat the plush dog patient from the kit
  • Study animal anatomy
  • Learn how to take care of pets

The Box: Oyster

The Cost: $39.95 per month

The Products: Each month you get a kit that features a new profession with STEAM based activities

  1. Yes please review!

    • I ordered 2 kits for each of my grandchildren
      three months! Only 1 kit arrived today!!
      ( one dental kit ) Please correct this!!!

  2. So… not a monthly box of steamed oysters? Hard pass, I guess. 😉

  3. Definitely yes

  4. Yes! sounds great

  5. Yes – I’m interested in reviews of this box. Thanks!!!

  6. i love this! i am kinda questioning the age group bc at nine my nephew would struggle with reading pancreas or other various terms without me or an adult. this is way overshot for a 5 year old, except maybe Matilda or Doogie Houser but i am interested in value as well.

  7. I am not sure of the targeted age for this subscription, but yes please!

  8. Yes! This looks great but at nearly $40, I’d like to know if the value is there.

  9. I wish I could just buy the paleontologist box… I think most of the other “professions” would fall flat and we don’t need a whole bunch of boxes.

    • Ok, Ross
