I let the kids help me unbox it (though I opened it beforehand just to see what was inside). Included were two craft projects: a paper mache moon nightlight and a constellation frame using sunprint paper. Each project was packaged separately and included everything we needed to create it. The kids absolutely loved the book Twinkle: Star of the Week. That was the first thing we did.
Also in the box was a gift for parents (a star wine bottle topper), travel binoculars so kids can create a moon cycle chart, coupons for other services and instructions to download the digital component. In this case it was an app: Twinkle by Kimboomu. The app is only for iOS products: iPhone or iPad. I'm not sure if there will be Android apps in future boxes. I loved everything in the box, but I felt like the app was an afterthought. The kids did not like the app at all. Not even Jaxson, who is in its suggested age range.
Jaxson and I decided to tackle the constellation project first. I've never used sunprint paper, but BabbaBox's illustrated instructions were easy to understand and follow. What kid doesn't like stickers? It's been a bit gloomy around here so luckily we substituted a bright light for the sun. This was a great project for my three year old because he didn't have to wait long for results. Little kids love instant gratification!

Overall, I really like BabbaBox. I like that it's not just craft projects but involves a book and digital content as well. BabbaBox is well rounded. Plus it's a women-owned company. That's Jessica Kim, the founder and CEO.
