    Show and tell

    We loved the balance between crafting, science, and art. My daughter was fascinated by the optical effects of the mirrors and the crate was well developed. She took the goggles and magic box to kindergarten for show and tell!

    Mirror challenge

    The mirror goggles were amazing, and my son loved doing the puzzles with the goggles on. The several different activities kept him busy and entertained for hours!

    Family fun

    The trick box was designed super well -- our 5 year old was able to complete it independently and understand how it worked. She had a blast performing illusions for family and friends!

    lots of fun

    My daughter has loved all the crates she's received. As soon as we get home from the post office, we have to open them up to see what activities are inside and get started building right away. I love that everything is included in each crate, from stickers to use to hold things together to crayons or markers to use to decorate things. The mirror illusions box was lots of fun. I even had trouble putting the puzzle together using the mirror mask!

    fun challenge!

    The whole family enjoyed the mirror box. My daughter built it, and then we all took turns trying to do daily tasks while wearing it. I prepared & ate a salad, with it on. It was a fun challenge. And, my daughter made a video of the whole thing. Creative fun for all!

    This crate was a lot of fun as well as being educational. Drawing and writing using the head mirror challenged tactile and eye dominance. Excellent crate.
