Kiwi Crate: Hours of fun!

Kiwi Crate Collage

When the Kiwi Crate arrived on our doorstep I was so excited to share it with my girls.  My nine year old loves to gather items around the house and make new things out of them.  You should see her latest creation with some straws, a few balloons, some string and a paper doll.  She has a very creative mind and when I heard about Kiwi Crate I knew this would be perfect for her.

What is Kiwi Crate?

Kiwi Crate is a monthly subscription of high quality kids crafting kits delivered to your door.  The kits contain themed crafts and include enough materials to create 2-3 projects as well as a theme booklet with extra activities.

At first I thought that it was overkill, do I really need kids crafts delivered to my door? Am I really that lazy? But then I thought back to our last visit to the craft store with both kids begging for just about every craft kit they saw.  I am pretty sure I spent too much money on a variety of supplies that we ended up not using.  Then it dawned on me; it’s not about being lazy, it’s about being smart.

Kiwi Crate Amusement Park Review

When I opened the box I was excited to see that it was full of high quality craft supplies and fun instructional materials.  My nine year was able to read and follow the directions with ease and was happy to help her little sister with the projects as well.

Our Amusement Park Kit contained the bumper cars and silly squirters craft.  There were enough materials for my girls to each make two of the crafts – they each had two bumper cars and two silly squirter faces to decorate.

The crafting supplies are of high quality and packaged in a way that makes for a nice presentation when unpacked.  The kit we received even included two pairs of Fiskars scissors, Kiwi Crate doesn’t skimp on their materials.  Once the crafts are put together they are sturdy and wont break easily like some other plastic toys.  These are toys you can be sure you will have in your playroom for a while.

My girls had a great time putting together the crafts and playing with them. The crafts didn’t take long to put together and they weren’t difficult to assemble.  Within minutes I heard lots of giggles from them. The bumper cars gained the most giggles as they raced and bumped the cars into each other.

Their creative side was certainly at play with the Kiwi Crate.

Disclosure: I received the Amusement Kit from Kiwi Crate to review but all opinions are my own.

    I never thought about craft/activity boxes like those from Kiwi Crate as a way to save money, but I now can see how that can be if you tend to buy way more than you need at the craft store. Great point:)

    It’s great Jennifer. Especially when you look at the quality of the items you’re getting!

  3. Thanks for the review. I like the idea of the theme booklet and extra craft ideas.
