What is a Womple?
A Womple is a yeti-like creature from Antarctica who has an unquenchable thirst for exploration and adventure. It came from the word “coddiwomple” (verb), meaning ‘to travel in a purposeful manner towards an unknown destination’>/i>.

Womple Studios experience
My son was only 5 years old at the time I bought the WompleBox. They recommend 6-11 years old for their boxes. And I understand why.
Womple Studios subscription box is story-based learning.
When I bought the single box, I read that part but it didn’t really sink in in me what it truly meant. LOL. I was just so excited to introduce New Zealand to my son.
When I opened the box, it was full of reading materials. At 5 years old, my son had just started learning phonics, basic consonant-vowel-consonant words. Having this lots of reading materials means you would have to sit down with your kids to go through the contents.
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with sitting down with your kids to do this. I was kinda looking for activities where they can do independently or with minimal supervision. So at least I can do other stuff simultaneously.
Now, my son just turned 6. And he is still looking for something more to ‘do’ or play with other than stickers and clay.
Nevertheless, I think IF I had bought this box next year, my son would have engaged more and assimilate the information more. The reading materials are very helpful. Even I learned a few things about New Zealand.
Moreover, as a ‘kid’ subscription box, I would have liked it to have more activities. Though the New Zealand box has stickers and a keychain, it only has 1 clay activity.
Before you purchase a subscription box, read what’s inside the box. Look at the pictures. You know your child best. Decide if the contents of the box are within their level or something they can explore with minimum supervision.
**This is NOT sponsored. We bought this subscription box on our own accord using our own money. We are not affiliated with them nor we know any people working for them. So rest assured, my opinion here is honest and only based on our experience.
