I love subscription boxes and have trialled plenty over the years, both for myself and for my kids. After experiencing toucanBox for a couple of months already, I was keen to get my hands on a different type of subscription box for kids. This is when I heard about Little World Builder! The Little World Builder subscription box offers children aged 6-11 the chance to learn about the world whilst also developing fine motor skills, concentration, hand-eye coordination and problem-solving with 3D puzzles, just for kids.
Little World Builder was founded by Maggie Jong, a mum of 2. She saw a gap in the market and with clever consideration and thoughtful ideas, she came up with this unique and fun subscription box for kids. She wanted something that was going to inspire children; to get them to ask questions and be inquisitive about places from around the world, taking them on a journey of discovery.
Firstly, there are two types of Little World Builder subscription boxes to choose from:
World Building Edition
World Structure Edition
We were sent the first and second box of the World Building Edition, which is is designed to help your child develop an appreciation for world architecture and cultures through hands-on learning! The subscription is for 7 months and each month you get send out information on iconic landmarks and buildings, with activities and these remarkable buildings to actually build in 3D!
Each Classic themed kit comes with:
– Activity Learning Pack including stickers, notes, information and learning guides
– 3D Puzzle craft
– Structure Themed craft
Such famous buildings include Big Ben, Empire State Building and much more! As there are 7 boxes to collect, it’s a 7 month subscription which is great as many subscriptions can be ongoing and you can lose track. This seems manageable and means you’ll be able to collect the whole set in just 7 months! If you commit to the 7 months, then it is only £17 per month.
As part of our review for Little World Builder, we received the Builder kit (Subscription Box 1) and Big Ben kit (subscription box 2). The builder kit is an introductory kit prior to the building journey. The kit contained all the tools and materials for us to start off, and as we’ll subsequently work through our themed building kits. The Builder Kit contains :
– A yellow Tool Box
– Wall-sized World Map
– Scrapbook Cover
– Welcome Postcard from Hailey & Caesar
– Building Fact card, Building Activity card and Fun Sticker
– Free Grampa’s House 3D kit
This is a lovely starter kit and immediately my younger two children (aged 4 and 7) were checking out the map to see where we lived! The tool box is super cute with the option of personalising this too. The toolbox is the perfect place to store future information and activities that the children may complete over the months. The introduction card from Hailey and Caesar was super informative and really helped set the scene. A 3D puzzle of Grampa’s House was also included as a FREE gift and we had a lot of fiddly fun building that!
Next we moved on the the Big Ben Kit. Inside we received:
– Scrapbook pages and stickers themed to the build
– Crafts and activities (the Big Ben one was a self-inflating balloon to colour in)
– Information book and activity sheet about the building and place
– 3D puzzle of Big Ben
Immediately the kids wanted to see what the self-inflating big ben balloon was all about. We had a selection of felt tips provided to colour in the balloon before we were instructed to give the balloon a whack and a shake and voila – the balloon inflated! The kids loved this!
The information booklet about Big Ben was a lovely read with a few written activities included. The postcard from Hailey and Caesar was a nice follow up from the first postcard too. The obvious main attraction was the 3D puzzle to construct! The structure had instructions to follow and was the perfect size for little fingers. As the parent, I couldn’t wait to have a go and kept interfering but my 7 year old was determined to complete it – and she did! The building is sturdy and well made – I was impressed!
Overall this was a lovely way to spend some family time together and learn about different buildings from around the world. It encouraged questions and is a perfect excuse to sit down as a family and get talking and playing together. Both myself and my 7 year old really enjoyed completing the tasks and my 4 year old keeps asking to build another one! Is Little World Builders worth the money? Yes! It’s a really unique subscription box for kids that’s not only arty and creative, but its educational and hands on. As I mentioned, if you sign up for the whole duration of 7 months, it’s £17 per month. However, there are shorter time periods which you can find out more on the website.
Overall, I think it’s a great concept and if you’re struggling for gift ideas, you can purchase a one off subscription box! We also are offering my readers an exclusive off of 40% off your first month – just use code MO40.
