Smarter Parenting recently reviewed the Get Qurious Maker Box on their site.
Here's an expert:
Maker boxes are all the rage these days. You can can order boxes with crafts, art projects, literacy based activities, science experiments, and pretty much anything else you can imagine.
Now I’m not one to jump on the bandwagon of any trend very quickly, so I hadn’t ordered any such boxes yet, however, the idea is an intriguing one. After all, it’s like opening a present, and who doesn’t like presents? Plus, what parent wouldn’t love a box filled with activities to entertain, educate, and encourage imagination for their children?
So, when I was given the opportunity to review the Get Qurious Maker Box, I jumped at the chance.
Get Qurious was started through a Kickstarter campaign in 2016. In their own words, their maker box creates an “augmented reality play experience that combines physical game pieces with an immersive, interactive digital world.” In a nutshell, the box combines stories, puzzles, games, and props that all connect to a digital app, allowing users to play with the contents of the box both physically and virtually. For today’s technology-driven world, it’s a pretty cool concept.
