My experience using Xplorabox:
When I received the huge activity box from Xplorabox, initially I was a little skeptical whether it was an all artsy-craftsty activity box, since I am not at all interested in that area. But to my surprise the huge box from Xplorabox contained a lot many entertaining and educational activities n games for kids.
My daughter was really excited to open each box. Since she is 3+, I read her the story from the book and encouraged her to color a page.
She was so excited about the surprise elements – 2 cute finger puppets which can be used as the pencil cap too. Though she understood the puzzle, I felt she is too young to put all the pieces together.
But I wanted to review the other activities contained in the box. It was then I took the Xplorabox to my daughter’s day care. Her friends at the day care were all excited and curious to know what’s inside the box.
Jigsaw puzzles were fixed and the 3D building model attracted every kid – 1 to 2 hours spend generously in learning through fun. I was really happy seeing the outcome of this activity box.
It was followed by the game ‘super framer game board’ which is similar to ludo. It involved currencies and flash cards. I wanted kids to explore the game all together as this game helps them improve their arithmetic like addition, subtraction etc.
My daughter was more interested in keeping the currencies with her while the older kids played the game.
I asked the kids whether they were happy with this activity box to which they replied ‘Aunty can you please ask my mom to buy such boxes for me? It’s really interesting’. I guess that sums up all the answers I expected 🙂
My rating: 5 out of 5
Would I recommend Xplora activity box to other parents?
If you feel that your child spends too much time in front of the TV, video, mobile games or is bored at home, Xplorabox is a MUST buy. Keeping the fun element intact, these boxes encourage learning and cognitive development in kids.
I guess these activity boxes are excellent gifting options for kids too.
