First Wonder Box has been created by the same people who publish First News, a newspaper for children. This box is aimed at kids age 4 – 8, and includes games, crafts, toys, and activities.
The box fits right through the mailbox.
It’s beautifully decorated, with lots of bright illustrations, and even a little note for parents!
The box unfolds, and turns into a craft, so there’s no wastage.
This is the inside of the box, to make Solar System Bunting. There’s even a ribbon and glue stick included, all you need are scissors.
There’s a card inside telling you about all the goodies in the box.
The activity book is excellent.
It contains puzzles, lots of cool trivia and other information presented very well for young children to take in. There are also opportunities for their own creativity, such as making stories and drawings.
There are cute little toys, a sticky alien catapult, and a set of glowstars.
You’ve also got a sticker sheet and a rocket pencil, perfect for filling out the activity booklet!
First Wonder Box is a lovely way to learn about a different subject or theme every month.
The activity booklet is packed with things to learn and do, and the layout is very appealing for little children, it’s not overwhelming or dense. The combination of learning and creativity is excellent.
I really like that the box itself is used so there’s minimal wastage, and of course it can be recycled afterwards. The solar system bunting is a lovely way to learn the planets, and to add decoration to a child’s room.
The themes of these boxes are completely neutral, and are subjects that should interest every child.
The glowstars are a lovely treat, as every child loves these. I think the only extra thing I would have liked with these would be a little guide to some constellations for kids to copy with the stars. However those are easy to find online.
At £7.95 a month this is fantastic value. The activity booklets can be kept as little reference guides, and there are also information cards to collect.
