Kiwi Crate Review

I had the opportunity to review Kiwi Crate last year. I was so impressed with the space exploration kit we received and I can remember thinking to myself they must have some pretty awesome holiday-themed crates. When the opportunity to review a Valentine’s Day Kiwi Crate I couldn’t wait to see what the crate had in store for me and my oldest son.

When the Valentine’s Day Kiwi Crate arrived, both my son Matthew and I were equally excited to see what kind of project was in the box. When I opened it I was happy to see that it included everything we would need to create fun little Valentine’s Day cards. The crate included pre-folded, pre-cut blank cards, a glue stick, cute little decorations and embellishments and a full set of markers. The instructions were simple and easy to follow for my 4-year-old. I only had to help him when it came to gluing some of the pieces to the card paper. Matthew loved being able to do so much of the project on his own. And now that he can write his name he’s excited to make cards this year for all his little friends as school. Both Matthew and I enjoyed our time together with this project and I look forward to more crate projects in the future.

Launched by three parents back in 2011, the idea behind Kiwi Crate is that parents would get the opportunity to spend quality time with their children on fun projects, without worrying about shopping for various supplies or pre-planning projects. When you subscribe to Kiwi Crate you’ll receive a crate each month with tools and materials needed for various projects that range from simple art projects to science experiments. You can order a monthly or annual subscription and now you can even order Kiwi Crates for your next party! One ordering option that fits my life right now is the “no fight” addition that you can order for only $7.95 with each crate – it includes additional materials so that siblings can get in on the act too.

If you have a child or grandchild between the ages of 3 and 7, you can’t go wrong with giving the gift of Kiwi Crate. You can learn more about Kiwi Crate on their website, their blog, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

    I like these. They include everything they need to make their little project. Not a bad price for everything already put together!

    I love little boxes like this that you get in the mail. My little one is too little for this now, but I can’t wait until he gets a bit older and can get excited that he has something in the mail!!

    Cute! I love that these come with everything you need in the box, no running around trying to find a necessary item for the craft.

    I really like this concept. I’m sure it’s a lot cheaper to purchase a Kiwi Crate than to buy all the supplies elsewhere. I can’t wait until my grandson is old enough for these! Thanks for sharing!!!

    I was just introduced to the idea of “crates” as gifts and love it. I think it’s especially good for those who have a birthday near the big holiday season. That way, you can get a three month subscription and have him or her covered for everything.

    This idea is adorable. I love the all-in-one concept – it makes things so much easier and there is no running around trying to find needed items to complete the little projects. It would probably also be great on a road trip since it is easy to just grab the kit and take-off.
