    Best ever!

    I still fly the kite the kids made from this set every summer! Hands down the cutest and most creative way to make a kite.

    6 Year Old LOVES Stomp Rockets!

    My 6 year old is easily frustrated and while she was frustrated with some parts of this, she was able to successfully assemble the stomp rocket portion about 98% of the way herself. She has been at the play portion now for a great deal of time. We haven't even gotten to the kite yet. This was a great purchase that I could not be more thrilled with. I wish shipping were not such an issue as we'd have continued with KiwiCo!

    Rocket was a lot of fun

    The rocket was well made and worked great. The kite materials were good but unfortunately at a beginner level it’s difficult to operate

    Creativity to the max

    This crate provided so many learning opportunities for my son. He was so excited to learn about this month's subject. The stain glassed project was fun for my very creative and artistic child.

    Making memories with my daughter

    Creating these different activities with my daughter has been such a great experience. We have bonded over these Kiwi Crates and have found projects that we love! The rocket launcher to be a personal favorite for the both of us.

    Great crate for a Summer day

    We did this crate on a day with beautiful weather to make sure we would have the best time flying the kit... and we did! This crate was not only educational, but gave my child something to play with for a long time.

    Finding science cool!

    This crate sparked a lot of curiosity in my daughter about science. She loved learning about the different subjects like air resistance and thrust!

    Proud parent!

    Wow so many great projects! My son loved making and launching the rocket launcher. Seeing them use STEM to make these come to life was such an awesome thing to see as a parent.

    Minimizing screen time

    When my son built the rocket launcher he was SO excited to go outside and start playing with it! Thanks KiwiCo for allowing my son to have projects not involving a screen!

    Great outdoor activities

    I am always looking for projects that will get the kids outside and this Kiwi Crate was perfect! The kite was so fun to make and made for an excellent outdoor activity that could be used so many more times.

    Fun facts and more!

    We loved learning about all of the different facts that was provided in the magazine. Learning about things like air resistance was a cool topic that we had never heard of before.

    Just okay

    My 7-year old was looking forward to this one.
    After building the kites, they do not fly well, even on a day with good wind. The rockets work great for one or two shots, then they fall apart. I know part of the experience is how to make them better, but the nose cones of the rockets would shoot off by themselves, and as the rockets hit the ground, the paper fins come loose and slide to the nose for the rocket. She lost interest quickly. Kiwi has built better crates.

    Huge hit!

    Neat projects that really captured the attention of my 5 year old. The concept of flight is one that intrigues children at this age, so not only were the projects well done and of high quality, they were excellent at keeping the attention of my child.

    Fun and easy

    All the projects provided an opportunity to learn, a manageable project with a fun finished product. It also had aspects of adding individual creativity (i.e. decorating the kites). The magazine explained the principles well and had additional activities to keep exploring.

    Fun for the whole family

    My daughter loved making the rocket and launching them. She played for hours with her brother on this. It was actually a very fun and exciting crate that involved the entire family. The rockets launched super high in the air!

    My girls, aged 4 and 6, loved the rocket launcher. We built the rocket launcher together, then we figured out ways to re-engineer it to work after they played with it for so long that it began to fall apart. This project turned into an entire afternoon of outdoor play. Highly recommended! The kite was less impressive, but it gave them something to color and another reason to run around outdoors.
