Kiwi Crate… creativity in a box

With the launch of Raising a Creative Kid rapidly approaching I went in search of the perfect company to work with on launch day. I didn’t have to look far. I’d seen Kiwi Crate promoted on some of my favorite blogs and knew it would be a perfect match.

Boy was I right. Kiwi Crate sent us a box (how very nice of them) and we are in love! The Crate was addressed to M and M. They love to get mail, so that was a very nice touch.

Opening up the crate was exciting for us all (the theme of this Kiwi Crate was a mystery… even to me).

ARG! It was a pirate crate, matey. You can view sample crates to see what other fun crates might arrive at your door.

The crate was PACKED with creative goodies. Our Kiwi Crate was a sibling pack (for a little extra you can add to the crates so everyone gets to participate).

One of my favorite things about Kiwi Crate is the obvious thought that went into the packaging and presentation. Each activity is accompanied with a sturdy instruction booklet. The cover of the booklet lets you know how much parent involvement will be needed, how messy the activity will be and what skills the kids will be working on.

The booklets use words and pictures making it easy for the kids to manage on their own.

I love, love, love how open-ended these activities are. The instructions asked Little M to color her treasure box with the markers provided. She wanted to paint it. SO… I would say a winning point for Kiwi Crate is that they are perfect for all types of families. If you want to stick to what’s in the crate, you don’t need any extra materials. But if you want to expand on any of the included materials, it’s very easy to do so. YIPPEE!

The pirate creating went on for two days and even included a really fun treasure hunt in the backyard with Daddy. (I’ll save that activity for another day).

    Just tried to discount on an annual membership and it takes $5 off not 25%. Thank you for a great review!

      Hi Carmen! The 25% is off the first month of an annual subscription. That’s why the discount was $5. Glad you liked the review. I bet you can’t wait for your first Kiwi Crate to arrive!

    I’ve heard a lot about Kiwi Crate lately, but honestly have not been impressed with our last two crates. The materials are pretty poor quality for the price, I think, and my kids have been pretty bored with them.
