Flintobox Subscription Activity Boxes – Review
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you would know a couple of other mom bloggers and I recently hosted a Fun With Five Senses contest on IG. It was an activity based contest with prizes sponsored by Flintobox.
Flintobox is a monthly subscription activity box for children of various age groups. Each box is loaded with play & learn activities for your kids depending upon your child’s age. With a new theme every month, these boxes are crafted by montessori experts and child psychologists and cater to the 12 developmental areas of a child.
Since Karma is a toddler, we got 2-3 years old Automobile Adventure box and Karma had a great time with it. Every one who knows her knows she absolutely loves cars, trucks, aeroplanes and trains. So this was right up her alley. You can watch my unboxing video below to see what’s inside the box or head on to Raising Karma Youtube channel.
Inside The Flintobox
Personally, I earlier felt that the activities were too simple for Karma. But she really enjoyed them! Then she started getting creative with the activities and added her own twist to them. That progress as she did each activity repeatedly made me realise that the box is actually very age appropriate.
Her favourite ones were the shape sorting and matching activities. The shape sorter activity taught her how much force and what hand placement is needed to fit pieces in and pop them out. She also realised how leverage, upward and downward force and resistance work. You can watch the video here.
In the matching activity, she had to paste the right mode of transport on to the the shape outlined on the scenery base. She made another game out of it by fitting the vehicles back into the frame they came in. Given how crazy Karma is about vehicles, she got all right one go! But she kept playing! The flip side of the base has no shape outlines. Only the scenery with water, land and air. So you have to paste the modes of transport accordingly. That’s what she moved on to next. See the video here.
I was very impressed by the quality of products in the box. Like you saw in the video above, all activities came in cloth bags that are easy to store. The materials used for each activity kit were of high quality finish. There is also a tracking sheet, a story book and guidelines on how to develop the activities in every box. The information is pretty detailed and helps parents know what skills are enhanced by each activity.
I would give Flintobox a rating of 8 out of 10. We got the box a while ago and Karma still loves playing with some of the activities in it. They’re a great way to keep your kids engaged and learn while playing.
The products were sent to me by the brand for being contest hosts and I didn’t pay for them. However, the views and comments shared are my own. I will never recommend anything to my readers that I won’t use for myself or my family.
