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.Read more ›
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.
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.
