Disclaimer: I was sent two months of Junior Explorers in order to write this review. That in no way changes the fact that this is perfect for older kids and this momma needs stuff for her 11 year old so I bet you do too!
Kids love getting mail! Especially when it's a package full of awesomeness. Mini loved this box and doing the missions. There are a few items missing from the picture. Not because we didn't receive it but simply because Mini got the box before I did. If you have a child that loves animals this is the package for you.
This is a subscription that you sign up for, get your kit in the mail, and then you can even go online to continue the fun! This is a digital and tactile experience that your kids will love. Mini loved the monthly missions and all of the fun that goes along with it! It's perfect for kids age 5-12.
The first month we got the following: Welcome letter with their own ID –JRX badge, tattoos and wrist band (collectibles)—Water bottle–Biomes of the World Map and Field Guide that covers Biomes and Animal Groups—Sticker activity to make that box into a Junior Explorer Trunk–A code in the welcome letter that gets the kids online.
They create their Avatar, meet Kia and Kyle online at the mission center and have the Biomes map available to them as a digital experience where every animal has a pop up flash card and they learn about the planet and those species. The Map also has a trivia quiz that junior explorers will play.
We were also sent a second month mission to continue the fun. The second Mission we received : Mission letter that tells about the mission and has the online mission code—Fun collectibles like flash cards, 2 figurines (Beluga and Polar Bear)—Photo cards with info at the back, stickers (for trunk and map), tattoos and a mission badge with wristband—Activity sheet—Ecosystem fact sheet that teaches them about the Arctic—Plus an awesome online experience.
Mini is such an animal person and this was so perfect for her. It's great for Homeschool also. Nothing beats fun learning!!!
