I am a working mom with a very active 2.5 year old and a husband who travels >50% time. This means even though I consider myself creative, I appreciate the ability to whip out a pre-packaged craft project that engages my little one without a) pre-planning/looking up ideas online; b) taking her to buy supplies (in small quantities) for similar projects; c) any consideration of weather or time of the day. Sure, there will be parents out there who take a look at the content and think it's nothing special. Well, I have two comments: 1) many of us wouldn't consider most activities for a 2-3 year old special but they are nevertheless fun and age-appropriate. 2) When my brain is fried from work but I'd rather not park my kid in front of the TV so that I can decompress, this is a fun way to spend time with my little one.

Price wise, I consider Amazon's price reasonable. I probably would have to spend more if I gather the supplies myself and would have the hassle of dealing with all the leftovers.

Personal reasons and pricing aside, I am actually quite impressed with the quality of the stuff inside. The quantity for each project is either good or on the generous side. Everything is bright/colorful and printed on quality paper. The projects create surprisingly little or no mess. All age appropriate -- some clearly require a longer attention span than my kid has or greater dexterity. That's ok; I help her with some stuff or let her finish the project in a couple of sittings. I can also try to challenge her, making up related stories/asking her decoration preferences while we do these projects and encourage her to keep at it a little longer to expand her attention span. These projects would work best for 2.5-4 year olds. I like the individual packaging for most of the projects.

My 5 year old daughter just got this craft box for her birthday, what a great gift! She sat down and did the craft projects on her own for hours. You can look at the box for ideas on how things should look OR just do what you want and be creative. All the projects are wrapped separately so you can hand out one at a time if you want. She was so proud when she was done to show us what she made. This is an excellent gift for kids who like to do/create things rather than just playing with toys. We will be buying more of these items for Christmas gifts. Very little mess to boot.

We bought this for our daughter's 2 year old birthday. It is great for those rainy days. The sticker art was her favorite. I highly recommend this for 2-4 year olds.

I really love this company's boxed crafts, very fun and easy for the kids to do on their own. However after throwing out half the box from previous purchases, I stopped buying them. Why did I throw them out? Because you had to dig through all of the millions of pieces to complete a project. Some of the cut outs were on one sheet and after tearing through half, the other half of the sheet it thrashed. To do one project took almost 30 minutes of digging to find all the pieces needed. However, with winter break coming up and Amazons amazing half of deal, I went ahead and bought this kit.

Wow!! So impressed. What an improvement. I was so happy to see that all the projects were so nicely separated into its own sleeves!! It also came with a colorful instructional sheet that lets us know whic sleeve to pull ad what additional pieces we need to pull from the separate box of accessories like the glue, ad what not. My just tuned four year old didn't have any problems doing the frog puppet this morning and my newly turned 2 year old finished the pizza project without my help. I wish I knew of their new packaging before the deal because I would have bought a few more as gifts. Oh well.

Even though I got it for half price, I definitely think its worth the full price. It comes out to about $2 a project and though some may not seem worth $2 in materials, if you consider the fact that they are pre-cut and ready to go, it is worth every penny.

This craft set was by far the coolest thing my girls got for their birthday. I searched it on amazon to recommend it to a friend and was blown away by the negative reviews. I read through them and thought I would give my opinion:

My girls are 5 and 7 and I felt "My Giant Busy Box" was perfectly age appropriate. I would even let a younger child, maybe age 3 or above play with this.

As for the complaints about it lacking direction, my girls didn't need directions. Everything was packaged individually and it didn't take a genius to figure out how to assemble an elephant puppet out of a paper bag. Plus I don't think anything labeled my giant busy box needs "directions". It's a giant box of crafts, what kid wants to be told what to do or how to do it. Open it up, give them a project and then slap that bad boy on the refrigerator!

Another review mentioned the glue sticks not working or being poor quality. I have no idea because we used white elmers glue because the bags for the puppets as well as their parts were very sturdy quality and I didn't think any kind of glue stick would hold, at least not for long. As for the contents being "messy", umm...yeah it was, but wasn't that kind of the point? Plus honestly it kept my kids entertained for over two hours so it was worth having to run the vacuum cleaner afterwards, which by the way I expected just by looking at the box. Nothing on the box says mess free. Quite the opposite in fact.

So if you are looking for a box full of crafts that will make your kiddo happy and keep them entertained, buy "My Giant Busy Box". If you want a project that requires no hands on skills, makes no mess, and is absolutely no fun at all, buy your kid a pet rock.
