    It is more expensive than the general boxes, but it really is bigger and you get so much more. I think it might be a good idea to offer a bi-monthly offer.

    That is certainly not suitable for my ten year old. perhaps five years of age is more appropriate I do love the idea of anything that gets kids creative, but this isnt something I would purchase

    As you say that definitely looks like a 5-8 year old box. Whenever we have had activity boxes sent both kids have loved getting stuck into the contents.

    I think it was a genuine mistake, had I not had other children I probably would have returned it. There is so much creative stuff you can do at home, and I know you are like me, we make do with what we have and prepare the activities ourselves. It is useful for those who don't have a clue where to start with these type of activities or don't have drawers and cupboards full of crafting materials (like me!)

    There is that little something more exciting about receiving the goodies in the post, If I'd just gone out and bought them they probably wouldn't have been so keen to get started.

    Hi Raisie, it's Maryhan, the founder of Brainboost. We are so sorry, we did post out the wrong box! We sent you the Early School box, which is for 5-8 year olds. Thank you for your honest review, we really do appreciate it as it helps us make our boxes even better. Thank you also to all your lovely followers and their comments too.

    We are in fact currently looking into different options to make our subscription more accessible such as boxes with fewer activities for less than £20 and offering a bi-monthly option. We would really appreciate some frank and honest feedback from anyone who might ordinarily be interested in this type of subscription. So please do get in touch and we can email a questionnaire across and then follow it up with a telephone call, if you are willing to speak to me directly.

    With very best wishes Maryhan

    Shame you got the wrong aged box but it's amazing what companies come up with – I had not heard of Brainboost Box before now but with the rising trend in subscription boxes, it is an obvious sector to target.
