(Inside: Sometimes, it’s hard to find that perfect gift for those kids who know…here are a few of my recommendations for Best Subscription Boxes for Tech-Savvy Kids.)
Subscription boxes emerged several years ago as a fun, convenient and affordable way to try new products.
While early boxes were largely geared toward clothes and toiletries, like shaving products, the selection of subscription boxes has expanded immensely over the years.
Now, you can find a subscription box for everything from dog toys and dinner recipes to skin care samples and slime – yes, slime.
If you’re a parent on the hunt for ways to encourage your child’s love of technology, a subscription box filled with fun tech toys and challenges can be a great way to make that happen!
The excitement of getting something unexpected in the mail, coupled with the novelty of what’s inside, will excite even the most apprehensive little ones.
Not sure which subscription box to try?
Here are a few of my recommendations for The 4 Best Subscription Boxes for Tech-Savvy Kids.
The 4 Best Subscription Boxes for Tech-Savvy Kids
Tinker Crate is made by KiwiCo, a company on a mission to make STEAM learning accessible, engaging, and fun for kids of all ages.
They have various crates geared toward different age groups, ranging from the Cricket Crate (aimed at children under 3 years old) to the Tinker Crate, which is created with kids 9 and above in mind.
Order the Tinker Crate, and your child will be greeted by a package filled with everything they need to build a STEM project from scratch.
If your child’s tech interest is centered around computers, a Bitsbox subscription can be a great way to encourage their creativity and help make learning to code fun.
Each Bitsbox includes coding projects designed to help your child get familiar with a particular coding concept through fun challenges and apps.
Your kid will have more fun than they could imagine bringing their app to life and showing it off to friends and family once it’s done, and they’ll be equipped with knowledge they can use to create other applications and websites.
Thimble is a subscription box aimed toward older kids with an interest in programming and robotics.
Kids can learn to code in Thimble’s block-based language or practice building projects with a real language like C++.
While each Thimble box contains its own mini-projects to complete, multiple boxes come together over the course of a few months to allow your child to build something truly impressive.
Spangler Science Club.
This subscription box is perfect for little ones who want to work with Mom or Dad to tackle fun STEM projects.
Depending on how eager your little one is, you can choose between boxes that contain one, five, or even ten STEM challenges or projects.
This box is great because it’s geared toward kids of all ages – not just older children.
While little ones may need more help from an adult to complete the projects, they’ll still learn a ton in the process.
With a little research, you’ll be surprised to see the number of STEM-inspired subscription boxes out there for tech-savvy kids.
See which one inspires your family and try it out! Have you experienced a subscription box for your child that you’ve loved – or disliked?
