Kiwi Crate meets Carnegie Hall

Simple Life by Casey Abrams on Grooveshark
what kid doesn't like getting presents?
or in this case, a Kiwi Crate
and what mom doesn't love seeing their child use their own creativity??








































Kiwi Crate recently partnered with Carnegie Hall to create a special music-themed crate and tha'ts the box we were able to play with above! Our Kiwi Crate came with two main projects, the music bracelets & then the xylophone.. but then they attached about 5 other musical instrument cards and had directions on what items you could use around the house to mimic that instrument! It is such a fun and creative box to get your kids off of the couch from watching tv... it also helped me engage with her, in her play! A win, win for both of us!

Kiwi Crateis a monthly subscription service, targeted at kids ages 3-7. Lexi is almost 2 1/2 and we still loved the crate! It was a tag team craft that lexi kept referring to as her party.. haha when she told my mom on skype about it, it just made me laugh!  They will deliver a box to your child each month that’s designed around a certain theme (think Dinosaurs, Garden, Superheroes, Space.)  In each box are 2-3 carefully designed and kid-tested projects, which cover a range of developmental areas and subjects, including art, science, and imaginative play.  All the materials and inspiration to encourage creativity and curiosity are included – you just supply the kids! 

I would definitely put this one on the Christmas List,
it would especially be a perfect thing to tell Grandma & Grandpa about
                                   since they never know what to get the kids and are always asking!! :)

Kiwi Crate was also recently featured on Good Morning America, the Today Show, and have a partnership with Pottery Barn Kids and they were just recently named one of Dr. Toy's 10 best creative products of 2012!

  14. Wow, what a fun box! I've tried Bluum and Citrus Lane and they seem to be hit or miss. This looks like a great box!

  15. Great idea for a Grammy. Especially if you have any long distance. Some of the cool stuff in the Target $1 bins would be good items to consider and of course pintrest has fabulous ideas.

  16. Hi there! I am new to the site. I found you on Pinterest...and... I just signed up with KiwiCrate and referred some of my coworkers, who were almost as excited as I was! lol. I can't wait for my little Micah, he's 5, to get his package in the mail. This is a really cool idea. Thanks for sharing! ;)
