Xplore Box Review and Giveaway

Congrats Casandra for wining the Xplore Box Giveaway.

                                 “Turning little tinkerers into big thinkers!”

Xplore BoX is a new subscription box that brings Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into the hands of children.  The boxes are filled with toys, projects, experiments and other fun items to get your child thinking.  I was excited to see a box like this for kids.  I was thrilled when Xplore BoX let me review a box for them.

Website: www.XploreBox.com
What is in the box? “ Every month, you’ll receive a boX that includes activities, projects, kits, toys and/or goodies that will engage and encourage kids in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).”
Cost: $29.95
When am I billed? You are billed at the time of purchase and then again every 30-31 days
Can I skip a month?  Yes, just email support@xplorebox.com
How do I cancel: You can cancel from your online account

This is how the box comes

I was very excited to see this box on my doorstep.  Xplore ships priority mail, which is excellent in my book.

First Look
The theme for this month is Kitchen Science
The information card
Kitchen Science Kit

The Kitchen Science Kit sells for $21.39 on Amazon.  This kit is filled with fun things to do: Table Top Volcano, Vinegar Rocket, Kitchen Spy-Invisible Ink, Kitchen Detective-Fingerprints, Rock Candy Factory and Fruit Battery.  I love all the experiments and activities in this box.  This would be lots of fun for a child.

Gummie Bear Tower Kit
The child uses the tooth picks and gummie bears to make a tower.  The child draws each tower in the book (below).  Xplore poses questions to the child  to find out what kind of tower is best: square base, triangle, or something else?
Journal and Pencil
Xplore included a journal and pencil, so you child can document all the findings
The Whole Box

Final Thought: I really like Xplore BoX.  This is a great box for any boy or girl ages 7-12.  Children older than 12 can still subscribe, but children under 3 should never use this kit (small parts etc).  As a child, I loved Science and would have loved to have a kit like this.  Xplore BoX makes learning Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fun.  I didn't do a full retail value for this box, as it was difficult to estimate prices for the gummie project.  This box is worth much more than the face value of each item.  The Xplore BoX experts have put together a box of educational items, that lets your child learn and have fun at the same time.  This makes this box well worth the cost.  Do you want a Xplore BoX for your child?  Xplore Box is so awesome, they are giving an Xplore BoX to one of my readers!  Just enter below.  Please do all three mandatory tasks (I do check).  A winner will be randomly drawn.  If the winner has not completed all the mandatory tasks, a new winner will be drawn.
