If you’re a parent you’ll know only too well how hard it can sometimes be to keep your kids entertained, especially when the weather is not the best and outdoor activities are perhaps less than appealing.
Well, thanks to our latest Startup of the Week, keeping your kids engaged for hours regardless of what the weather is like has just got a whole lot easier.
toucanBox is a subscription service which delivers a monthly box of creative and hands-on experience for kids aged between 3 - 7 right to your door. Like most subscription startups you have the option to try it out on a one-off basis, for 6 months or even on an annual basis. You can also of course choose to gift it to someone.
Each month a toucanBox is sent out which is based around a particular theme - on everything from space to bugs. The boxes contain all the materials to complete at least 4 projects which are all designed to help stimulate children’s creativity and also help encourage key development skills. Easy to follow instruction manuals and a picture book are also included. toucanBox are also keen to get feedback from users on future themes so you can vote for your fave potential options on their site.
It certainly seems that subscription services are here to stay and it’s good to see that they’re not just been targeted at adults, especially when they have an underlying mission of helping to boost and stimulate a child’s creativity and development. We like toucanBox. Lots.
