Send Your Kids on a Globetrotting Adventure Each Month with the WompleBox (Review)

Globetrotting adventure books and creative STEAM activities, delivered monthly.

If you follow my blog then you know that I homeschool my two girls.  So, I am always looking for fun and educational hands on products to use with them as part of our school. I find they learn better and have more fun when they are completing arts and crafts projects, cooking or baking, or learning all about a particular person, event, etc.  

"WompleBox is a monthly exploration/travel subscription box that inspires kids 6 to 11 to love learning about their world.

What's in a WompleBox:

  • Illustrated early-reader chapter book from a Womple pen pal to transport your child to a different country every month
  • 2 unique, culturally-significant STEAM projects to inspire creativity and open-ended play
  • Fold-out map & country guide with fun facts, recipes, culture, history, art, and activities
  • Collectible keychain, re-stickable stickers, & more!

Every month we deliver a new exciting adventure book (featuring a traveling Womple "penpal") paired with hands-on activities to spark kids' interest in different countries and cultures.

It's the perfect blend of fun and educational: kids love getting their own engaging adventure in the mail, and parents love that their kids are thrilled about learning."


I first heard about WompleBox a few months ago when I saw an ad for their box on Facebook.  I had made a note to check it out and see if it would be a good fit for my girls, know with life, I got busy and forgot to look at it further.  It wasn't until last month when I was asked if I wanted to review WompleBox and include it in my holiday gift guide. I jumped at the opportunity as I saw a couple of their past boxes that you can purchase individually in their shop, and thought they looked amazing! Just seeing all the fun things that were included in the box made me want to check out the WompleBox with my girls.

A couple weeks ago we received the Morocco themed box, and it was filled to the brim with goodies, and had my girls excited to dive right in.  What I love about this subscription box for kids is that you get a story book to read, along with a full-color handout booklet about the specific location you are learning about for the month, along with a recipe to try, a craft, stickers, and more.  Just looking at everything that was included and seeing that a lot of time and effort went into preparing this box, I was amazed at how it was all for under $30.  

Both of my girls love to read and really found "The Birthday Blunder" to be a fun story.  They both agreed it felt like they were being transported on an magical adventure.  If you have a reluctant reader, these style beginner chapter books would be great for them, as the pages are filled with full color playful illustrations, and the print is large, with some words in color in special font, which makes those words jump off the page, catching your child's attention.  This particular book had 58 pages and was a quick read for my girls.  We read it together in under and hour, and then they liked it so much, they read it again on their own after we completed all the activities included in the box.

After we were done reading the story, we moved on the full-color fold out booklet, which introduced us to Morocco with fun facts, the art of Hamsa, a recipe for Ghriba, which are Moroccan almond cookies, and also shared about the Berber tribes in Morocco.  When you fold out this booklet, you have a map of Morocca, with some fun Did You Know? facts, animals from the area, important locations, and more.  I really like the addition of the map as we didn't have to run and grab a maps book from the shelf or look online to find where Morocco is - it was handy and available to us with this kit.

My girls had so much fun making the Hansa amulet.  I shared with them how I used to love doing Shrinky Dink crafts as a kit. It was so much fun watching them make their own shrink art that turned into a super cute good luck charm.  And, best of all, all the supplies needed for this craft were included in the box, minus scissors and a hole punch, which you should have at home already.

Our Morocco-themed WompleBox was so much fun, and kept my girls busy for an afternoon as they read the fun chapter book, crafted the lucky charm Hamsu amulet, and ending by baking up the yummy almond cookies.  My girls were so excited when they saw that the next month would be Japan. They wondered what they would learn more, and asked me as soon as we were done baking to sign them up for more of these boxes.  I told them I definitely would be signing up for more as I was so impressed with the content and how this box got my girls excited about learning about new location, while getting creative with fun activities included.

If you are looking for a fun gift idea for your kids or that special child in your life, why not consider a WompleBox subscription?  While toys are nice, kids usually get bored with them after a short time, and then they take up space.  But, each month kids will get excited for happy mail arriving to their doorstep from WompleBox, and will be even more excited when they see all the fun that is in store for them with that particular month's globetrotting stop.

Subscriptions to WompleBox can be purchased on a month to month basis, as a one time purchase, as well as 3-,6-, and 12-month subscriptions, and start at $26.99 a month (Shipping is FREE in the USA).  Then, get ready for your kids to have a blast globetrotting the world, while learning and exploring through hands on fun.  You can learn more about WompleBox box for kids by visiting  And, if you sign up for emails on their website, you'll save 30% off your 1st month!
