FTC Disclaimer: Kiwi Crate provided us with the crates/kits in this post. None of these links are affiliate links. We supplied the boy, the cat, and the Angry Birds.
When I first saw the press release for the Kiwi Crate, I thought it sounded like neat idea: a subscription service for a box of crafts for kids ages 3 to 7, with everything included. The boy and I sometimes make crafts we find online or in magazines, but usually the more interesting ones involve something we don't already have around the house, so they get put off until we make a trip to the craft store.
Kiwi Crate sent us the Space Hero crate and a My Wings mini-crate. These are both available separately from the subscription, meaning that they are available as single-purchase items.
Kiwi Crate Launches Celebration Shop
New Offering Extends Traditional Subscription Service with Enriching Hands-on Activities for Birthdays and Other Celebrations
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (May 10, 2012) – Kiwi Crate, the creativity company for kids growing up in the digital age, today launched the Kiwi Crate Celebration Shop, an ecommerce storefront offering gift crates and party pack "mini-crates" for party activities or favors.
Kiwi Crate, which launched in October 2011, is a subscription service that delivers new hands-on projects each month to kids ages 3-7. To enhance that offering, Kiwi Crate has introduced a Celebration Shop for customers who wish to purchase gift crates and party packs for birthdays and other celebrations.
The new gift crates, Space Hero and Fairy Fun, each contain three projects designed to encourage creativity and extended play. Gift crates offer parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends the ability to give a gift that not only is fun and engaging, but enriching and educational as well. Gift crates are priced at $19.95 each.
