I recently won a free box from Kiwi Crate because they are giving one away each day during the month of March (Crafting Month). I have been wanting to try it out but was unsure because $20 seems a lot to me for a box of kids crafts. But was I surprised! In my opinion, the materials included along with the detailed instructions and inspiration were way worth it! My box included 2 projects, a paint your own planet mobile and build your own rocket. All the materials needed were in there except for some things like scissors. My 4 yr old daughter and I had a lot of fun making these two projects! She also used the leftover materials to make many more projects of her own! I am looking at my budget to see if I can fit in a subscription because these projects will really help make our homeschool more fun! Shipping was fast and the email correspondence was really friendly. Love Kiwi Crate!

We’ve been getting Kiwi Crate for a couple of months now and my daughter loves it! I find the materials to be high quality and there is no skimping on quantity.

Doing these crafts with my 3.5yr old each month is great. They are creative, and fun. Here is my blog review: http://liltykesandthetaillesstornados.blogspot.com/2012/07/kiwi-crate-july-review-coupon-code.html

This subscription is an awesome gift idea for grandparents, or other relatives to give a child. These crates are wonderful for bonding with your child over a fun, creative, craft project all kid tested and approved. We were lucky enough to receive this as a gift and once our subscription expired, we signed right back up. We get HOURS of playtime out of each kit and we save the extra materials we do not use for other fun projects. I can’t say enough good things about this. Perfect Christmas & Birthday present idea!! :) Only thing I would note about this service is to make sure you read about the shipping / ordering time frame, as it may run a little different than other services you may have tried. LOVE them!

My daughter loves her box! It always have high quality crafts that we do together. We save the extra materials for art journaling and other crafts. I have other subscriptions but this is my favorite for preschoolers.

I found these boxes to be a little confusing — my daughter was not too interested in many of the themes (I.e dinosaur or wind energy). Seemed a little more geared to boys. Many of the projects were not very practical and didn’t really work ( we planted the seed from the planting box and it didn’t grow). We received three boxes for a gift subscription and did not sign up. I also felt that most of the projects required a lot of parent leadership.

We are not fans. The two crates we received were full of mostly cardboard cut-out that we could have made ourselves. We love Green Kid Crafts and Citrus Lane and are going to stick with these two companies.

I really don’t know where to begin! I will try to make my rant short. DO NOT GET THIS!! There was a problem with my order and I didn’t get my box until 2 weeks after I was supposed to. They then charged be for box 2 after I had cancelled it! Thennnnnnnnnnn when I finally received the box it had felt and cotton balls to make stuffed vegtables. Really?! I’m paying for that? No thank you! I finally got my money back after several emails.

Consider yourself warned! There are better subscription services out there. This is not a good choice!

We adore Kiwi Crate. My five-year-old son is excited every month when the green box shows up at our door. The items are high quality, the crafts are great for us to do together, and he plays with them long after they are finished. I am a crafty mom but I couldn’t put these kits together for less. I recommend them to everyone I know with a child this age. They are quality fun!

My daughter is 7 and above the range for Kiwi Crate, but we love them. It was our family’s first subscription box. We had initially found it on FB when they had a Chanukah box. We won a free one, but it never showed up and we just purchased it. It was fantastic fun and we’ve been hooked ever since. She’s made a catapult, recycled paper (which she jazzed up and entered in the county fair and won!), games, toys, science experiments. It covers all disciplines. Now that know these boxes are a thing, I’ve looked for other kid-geared one and don’t see anything equal to Kiwi Crate.

My son is 4 and we had a great time making both of the crafts in our first box. I was impressed that all materials were included (even a pair of safety scissors), and one of the items, a star punch, is the kind you’d find at a scrapbooking store. It will be used again! The effort required to make the crafts was perfect. Lots of parent-child interaction, and the items were ready to play with quickly. Both the lantern we made and the collection box have been played with daily since we made them. My first month was a gift from a friend, but I’ll be paying from now on. It’s worth the money!

These boxes are not worth the money, in my opinion. I wanted to love them but after 2 months if boxes that were full of cheap materials and projects that the kids destroyed in 10 minutes we cancelled. Cancelling was super hard and they charged me for an extra month and are refusing to give us our money back. We tried a few other boxes and settled on Green Kid Crafts. They include lots of art supplies we can use again and studier projects.

Not worth the money for just two cardboard projects a box. I’m a little upset because the advertise that there are 3 projects per box but after 2 months of boxes with two flimsy crafts we cancelled, which was so hard to do! There isn’t a phone number on their website anywhere and I couldn’t get anyone to respond to my emails. Then, after I finally got someone to cancel they charged me for another month and then i was back to trying to contact the company. Hate bad customer service!!!!!

I had a horrible experience with Kiwi Crate. There was paint in the box that actually exploded all over the carpet and my son and it stained! Why wouldn’t they use washable paint in a kids box? Then the service was horrible trying to get a refund and reimbursement for my ruined carpet.

I ordered this for my son and then cancelled it after a few months – my son just wasn’t interested in the projects….I had a problem getting my first box and when i emailed them it took forever to get back to me. By the time they replied I was getting my second box in the mail which i didn’t even want anymore. Obviously, some people love them and that is great but that wasn’t my experience. I didn’t like the projects and found customer service seriously lacking

Kiwi Crate Glowing Animals October 2013 Photo Gallery Review and $10 off Promo Code

See full review here: http://outsideoftheboxreviews.blogspot.com/2013/11/kiwi-crate-glowing-animals-october-2013.html

This Glowing Animals theme was a hit! The packaging and branding is young, fun and interesting. The value for dollar is also definitely there. This month they included to easels and two high quality paint brushes. They have the absolute best referral program I have ever worked with. This box brought us a fun filled glowing experience and we had a lot of fun with it. My DD and I both appreciate all of the attention to detail that are put into these boxes! She is really looking forward to the coming months. Well done Kiwi Crate!

We have been getting this box for quite some time and my daughter just loves it! She gets super excited to see it in the mailbox and she immediately wants to get to work on her projects. I love the little magazine they have started including as well. The crafts are perfect for kiddos and honestly to buy all the supplies I would spend more then the price of the box! Most of the time the items such as markers, paint and chalk and brand name items as well. I highly recommend this box to anyone with kiddos!

We received our first box this month and loved it. I saw a comment that this box required a parent to help, that comment was a complaint but I think it’s fantastic. It’s encouraging family time for all of us with our 3 year old. It was difficult for him to use the puff paint and stay in the lines so we eventually took the premade design out and gave him just the plastic to make his own design. My son is a bit of a perfectionist and doesn’t like to make mistakes. We were able to use this box for a learning tool for him to teach him it’s ok not to be perfect and it’s really helping him out. We did run Into an issue with one of the products but customer service responded to my emails within a few hours a rectified the problem. I was pleased with how fast the responded and how they fixed the issue. We plan on continuing with kiwicrate and hope that all the future boxes are as great as this one. Thank-you kiwicrate!
