    Very nice disk launchers

    These actually work. I like the disk launchers and the book explaining the science behind it was very interesting. My only issue is that it is so easy to lose the small disks. A larger object such as a ball would have been more preferable, I hope my boys learned something. Overall a good product that works well.

    Another favorite! DIY disc launcher for hours of play

    My son is 4.5 years old. He needed a little help to assemble the disc launcher. But had no trouble at all launching the discs to hit targets. The fabric game board activity even teaches addition. This crate is excellent at teaching potential/kinetic energy and transfer of energy concepts.

    Awesome!

    My 6 yr old son was able to assemble by himself and spent hours playing with this one. Probably his favorite one yet!

    Another awesome crate

    My son always looks forward to his crate every month and this one did not dissapoint! He was so excited that he could create his own games and even made up rule books for them!

    Found her innovative side

    It was a great combination of educational values and elements of fun and creativity. Building the disk launcher was a a great mind exercise and creating the clay obstacle and other games really helped her tap into her creative and innovative side.

    Continued play

    The best part about this crate was that my son could continue to play and create more and more games. It was not just a one and done toy!

    Mom-win

    I consider it a mom-win when I can find a project like this disk launchers crate to keep my son away from video games for so long! Each project was very educational and exciting!

    So many big projects in one box!

    There are so many different aspects of this crate that my daughter enjoyed. From the clay sculpting to building the disk launcher, she had so much fun with this month's crate.

    Disk in motion

    Learning about the different motions and forces was very interesting. Once we saw the project in motion we could discuss the science behind it.

    Loved the Crate! Loved the Activities!

    My boys ages 5, 7 and 9 all enjoyed working together to build their disc launchers and play the suggested games. They all also loved reading their "Zine" and trying out all the inertia activities. Loads of fun!

    My 5yo favorite crate

    This has been my son’s favorite crate. He was able to read and follow the instructions all by himself and spent hours (and days) playing with the launchers. Such a fun crate!

    great for the family

    My 8 year old liked the extra info he learned about inertia in the magazine. My 5 year old loved the easy-to-follow instructions. And my husband loved that there were enough supplies for him to build one too!

    Love Kiwi Crate

    I liked that after building one disk launcher with my son (6 y.o) it was easy for him to build the second one on his own. He felt proud of himself. I also liked the multiple games that you could play with the disk launcher. It seemed to add to the longevity of the activity. We are seriously so impressed with every single one of these crates. I'm amazed every time at the quality of the items and the creativity. I am a huge fan!

    Proud accomplishment

    Creating a disk launcher seemes intimidating at first to my son. However, with the easy instructions he was able to build it all by himself! I was so happy he perserved!
