Per the website, this monthly subscription service is aimed at discovering the wonders of the universe! Each month, a new box will arrive, filled with magnets, stickers, toys, and more, helping your child explore a new place in space, and featuring space exploration, space science, and astronomy. Roxy and Jett, the cartoon character hosts, scout about the galaxy as a guide to these adventures.
We received our first month's box and Ben immediately dug into his package, which featured:
- Introduction to the Space Scouts Program
- Space Scouts Lunchbox
- Space Scouts Solar System Poster
- Space Scouts Activity Sheet
- Space Scouts Sticker Scramble
- Space Scouts Constellation Card Startup Kit (cover & ring)
- Introduction to Space Scouts Constellation Cards
- And a cool space grabber toy
With space/astronomy obsessed kids, I had a feeling this package would be a good fit at our house. That said, we never did receive a second monthly kit as promised, despite waiting several months. While I hope it was an oversight, we really wanted to see a subsequent package to fully evaluate the service. From what we did receive, I think we would recommend it, but wish we knew a bit more about what would arrive after month 1.
The price per month is affordable at $11.95 per month + $3.00 shipping. Discounts also apply to multi-month purchases. There is also a 20% discount, using promo code USFAMILY20, on the initial purchase of any Space Scouts subscription plan.
