A brilliant new maker box that combines digital and real-world play for kids. And wow, the possibilities.

Cool Mom Picks recently reviewed the Get Qurious Maker Box on their site.

Here's an expert:

To my nieces, screen time is like water. Without it, I think they’d go all limp and cockeyed. So I love discovering apps for them that encourage both tech literacy and imaginative play.

The two come together together beautifully thanks to the brand new Get Qurious Maker Box, which we think parents will be really happy to discover.

You may have heard about its super successful Kickstarter campaign last year, and now that the box is finally out, I think that Get Qurious is going to be a fantastic gift for…ahem, curious kids. And their parents, who love giving educational gifts that kids will enjoy.

There’s essentially a free iOS app you download creating an augmented reality play world around the story of The Three Little Pigs (other stories will be along soon, no doubt). Within the box, you get lots of smart, hands-on activity tools like story cards or a puzzle, all designed to bring kids into that virtual world and help create it and control it in a totally hands-on way.

That’s making the best of how kids learn.
