- Happy Trunk from Happy Trunk
- We recommend this product for ages 3 and up
What It Is
Happy Trunk is a subscription service that delivers a box filled with craft and science projects for your kids right to your door each month. The boxes include all the supplies and directions for three or four craft projects and a science experiment. Each month has a different theme to the activities. For example, the Winter Wonderland Happy Trunk came with instructions and supplies for making two snow globes, a stained glass snowman, and ice paintings.
Is It Fun?
Happy Trunk is a fun way to spark kids' creativity every month. Kids will love getting their own mail and opening their Happy Trunk to see what they get to build, make, decorate, and explore that month.
Who It’s For
There are Happy Trunks available for ages 3–7 or 8–11.
What To Be Aware Of
Available only at thehappytrunk.com. A one-month subscription is $19.95. A three-month subscription is $58.95. A six-month subscription is $109.95. And an annual subscription is $199.95. Shipping is free.
We had to dig around on the site to find the terms. This is a continuity program. When you order, you will be billed every month until you cancel, and you need to cancel by the 15th of the month. If you take a longer subscription, cancellation gets more complex.
We would recommend that you minimize your commitment at least at first. There is a huge difference in the cognitive development and what's entertaining for kids at 3 versus kids at 7. As a result this could be challenging and frustrating for some kids, or boring for others. The same applies to the 8-11 age spread.
This will also appeal to kids who like crafts. We couldn't find any science projects in the samples. The scientific books were merely links to Amazon.
