Explore Magazine is a magazine that is included in every box. You can also add supplies for a sibling for only $9.95. The Explore Magazine is filled with cartoons, activities, and bonus crafts. My son L loves Kiwi Crate. He is always so excited to get this box and see what the theme is for the month.
