The XploraBox is another amazing activity box (for kids from 2 years to 8+ years of age) that is full of DIY activities for your child that encourage development and can keep your child engaged in play for hours. And not just play, your child also gets to learn new and interesting concepts using the activities, games and objects that come in the box.
The box is reasonably priced at Rs. 899 and is totally worth the price.
The theme for this month’s XploraBox is ‘Fun With Shapes And Colors’.
The box contained the following:
1. Fish The Shapes: This activity contained a magnetic fishing rod and cutouts of possibly all geometric shapes in different colors. The child is supposed to ‘fish’ for each shape using the magnetic rod and carry out the activity. This activity interested my son a lot because he loved to touch the shapes with the rod’s magnet and fish it. My son comes to me after every few hours and says, “Mumma, I want to play shapes.” and I know immediately what he’s talking about. From one game, emerge many, like, I could say, “Pick up all shapes that are blue in color” or “Pick up all shapes and put them inside the box” etc.
2. My Lovely Objects: This activity contained a three-fold hardboard book with various objects printed on it in the shape of geometrical objects.
For instance, an ice-cream is represented by an inverted cone and a semi-circle on top of it. The child is supposed to match the respective shape cut-outs with the figures on the board. This activity helped my son learn up all his shapes better.
3. Memory Match Card Game: This activity contained two set of cards one of which contained all geometrical shapes and the other contained objects. The kid is supposed to play a memory game by matching the shape card with the respective object card. My son’s age was a bit too young to play a memory game, but this game would be great for a three or a four-year-old child.
4. My Happy Family Photo Frame: This activity contained a hard board with the picture of a house printed on it. It came with four double-sided tapes and four colorful shapes. The kid is supposed to stick the shape in the respective place and paste a passport size photograph of the members of the family in the given place. This served as a cute and innovative photo frame with a stand at the back and found its place in my son’s room on the bedside table.
5. Fun with colors: This month’s Xplorabox was all about colors so how could color boxes not be a part of the box? The box contained a set of Camlin Crayons, 6 poster color tubs, a paintbrush and a coloring book.
I don’t need to mention how much my son enjoyed this activity because all kids love to scribble with crayons and that’s exactly what he did in the coloring book. All its pages are fully scribbled now and I can clearly see on paper, the enjoyment he experienced while doing it.
What I liked about the Xplorabox
- The activities were such that many activities could be generated from one activity. For instance, from one activity of the magnetic fishing rod, I could create several activities and this never lets one activity items die out and the kid can play with it repeatedly for weeks altogether.
- One theme was chosen and it was used very exhaustively, that is, the box contained things of almost all shapes and almost all colors.
- The box contained innovative activities which were unique and interesting.
- The material of the things provided was good quality.
- The activity items were all colorful and thoughtfully made, so as to keep the child engaged.
