My little wummels are 3 years, 2 months, 3 weeks, and 1 day old.
Wummelboxes are boxed kits filled with several unique crafts included for you to pick and choose from and create with your children. (If they are old enough they can create on their own and give you a little break if you’d like.) Sometimes that’s nice to 😀 .
I will say that I appreciated the eco-friendly materials, right down to the main packaging box that the contents arrived in. Green moms & dads will eat these kits right up!
I personally am in love with the the fact that you need not go looking for anything outside of the box to put these crafts together with. All you need is right inside, whether it be paint, glue, scissors, screws, etc. A definite, definite PLUS! I also praise the ingenious ideas that are held within the boxes 4 corners.
What was included inside of our Wummelbox
Our kit included a time machine craft. Mikayla chose to do this one first. As kids, didn’t we all pretend we were going back or forward into another place in time and wonder how things would be? (In my ‘Back to the Future era’ I know I certainly did.)
Now of course, the Wummelbox time machine doesn’t really travel through time, but it puts little imaginations to good use with real working knobs and stickers for the displays as is shown in the photos below.
We had to move upstairs for some peace from the twins which meant no kitchen table.
This was good enough for the job though.
Although these sets are geared towards the 3-8 year old range, the particular tasks in this box seemed to be geared more towards the older ages. My 7 almost 8 year old took part in this one. It was passed my 3 year old twins’ ability. However, every craft is unique as is every boxed set. We only got to the time machine craft, thus far. We will make more shortly though.
I like that these Wummelboxes contain pieces that once put together do not require batteries but only mind power (aka imagination) to bring them to life. Nowadays, I find that refreshing. My only complaint was that for only a couple of the knobs I had quite a bit of trouble getting the screws into the pre-drilled holes. They were quite snug.
I didn’t need to call a man in for the job (he, he). I’m just saying as a woman I had a tough time of that one aspect of things. My daughter was obviously unable to help out there. (We had to paint the wooden board before insertion. It may be possible that dried paint caused some of the snugness, though not proven.) I REALLY had to thrust a couple of the ‘safety’ screws in hard though.
She painted her time machine, added the stickers, and played with the working knobs. Then I quizzed her on what places in time she would like to travel to.. if only she could?
Watch this short yet funny video of her answers holding her Wummelbox time machine below. I wasn’t intending on a video for this product, however, I thought her answer would be an interesting one, so I grabbed my camera. I surely was correct. She’s really cute so check it out.
Wummelboxes are handsomely priced at $34.95 each. Though if you wish to purchase a subscription for more boxes to be sent your way, they are as inexpensive as $19.95 per box! (Shipping is FREE!)
Everything inside of the box is completely safe for the 3 & up age group. From Fiskar safety scissors in certain kits, to safety screws without sharp edges, and non-toxic paints and glue, etc. Again, there are no extras to reach for. LOVE that!
In looking at the website I can see other kits that would definitely suit my family age group even more so than this one I received, however, it was nice to do something just with my 1st little princess. It made her feel special.
I like the variety of crafts and the fact that you get several projects per box. This one contains 4. (They all contain between 3-4 crafts.) You can have family fun day and create one project per week as a family if you would like, or let your kids imaginations run free while you get something done around the house. The choice is yours.
I think ages even beyond 8 would be interested in some of these crafts. I would have enjoyed doing these in the privacy of my room up to 12 years of age I would say. (Isn’t the old 12 the new 8 though 😆 .)
