What is KiwiCo (formerly Kiwi Crate)?

If you’re looking for some really unique ways to keep your kids entertained, I highly recommend KiwiCo!

In case you’ve never heard of KiwiCo, it used to be called Kiwi Crate but after expanding and , they rebranded to be called KiwiCo.

KiwiCo is a that offers kid’s educational projects, crafts, and activities on different themes. You can — including shipping. Each box includes all the materials to make a fun hands-on project (or 2-3 simpler projects, depending on the box!).

What age range is it for?

The original Kiwi Crate was designed for kids ages 5-8, but they’ve now !

KiwiCo offers :

  • Tadpole Crate for ages 0-3 years (Explore & Discover)
  • Koala Crate for ages 3-4 (Play & Learn)
  • Kiwi Crate for ages 5-8 (Science, Art, & More)
  • Atlas Crate for ages 6-11 (Geography & Culture)
  • Doodle Crate for ages 9-16+ (Art & Design)
  • Tinker Crate for ages 9-16+ (Science & Engineering)
  • Eureka Crate for ages 14-104 (Engineering & Design)

The two most popular crates (at least in our house!) seem to be Kiwi Crate and Tinker Crate, but I love that they have !

My Honest KiwiCo Review

If you’re looking for completely honest Kiwi Crate reviews, I’m here to tell you that my kids have been using KiwiCo for years and absolutely LOVE it. They received it as a gift one year and loved it so much that they continued requesting it as a gift each year after that!

I have fond memories of them running to the mailbox in excitement and anticipation to see what would be in this month’s Kiwi Crate box.

I still remember how much Silas loved the very first Kiwi Crate box we received in the mail! He made a glow worm from a sock and named it “Billy Butler” after one of his favorite Royal’s baseball players.

Since we’re a family that has never had a lot of toys, the KiwiCo boxes have been a great fit for us. It’s really nice that they’re mostly consumable and don’t contribute to toy clutter around the house.

I also really love how hands-on, educational, unique, and entertaining they are. And they always have really great instructions for kids (and parents) to follow.

Even as they’ve gotten older, they still really enjoy getting the boxes in the mail. (And I love that KiwiCo has now added on some !)

In fact, we recently received a Kiwi Crate and Tinker Crate in the mail and ended up taking it with us on our family vacation in Utah.

Our nieces and nephews loved working on the projects together and all gave it a thumbs up! (How’s that for an honest Kiwi Crate review? 😉) It was so much fun and such a great way for them to all do a hands-on activity together!


How much does Kiwi Crate cost?

The one negative thing I have to say about KiwiCo is the cost. (But be sure to scroll down for a coupon code to save on your first box!)

While my kids have absolutely loved their Kiwi Crate boxes, we’ve always received them as gifts from grandparents. And I do think that they’re a little bit on the expensive side — especially if you’re on a tight budget.

and you can get them for as low as $16.95 per month if you buy an entire annual subscription at once.

{The Eureka box costs even more at $29.95 per month or $24.95 per month if you purchase an annual subscription.}

This is why I think a KiwiCo subscription is a GREAT idea for grandparents as birthday or Christmas gifts! And you can , depending on your budget — one month, three months, six months, or an entire year.
