Wonder Crate is all about empowering children! This goal directs every decision we make, from what topics we cover, to who we partner with, to the individual items we include in each box. We want to teach ALL children the social and emotional skills that will empower them to explore their world, challenge their current abilities, look for ways to make the world a better place, and expect their own efforts WILL change the future!

Our consultants on all things kid-related. We run all items by their precocious eyes and ears before including in a box. When they give a thumbs up on a book, toy or activity - we know other children will love it too!
