Anything that would allow me to teach the little man at home and entertain him without having to plug any electric appliance or turn on a gadget is alright in my book! In fact, ever since Jared was born I was always on the look out for cool stuff that would be both fun and educational for my little one. I actually stumbled upon these activity box packages online and it was such a pity that they were not available in the Philippines. Well, that all changed when I chanced upon KaHone and I was thinking “at last! they finally managed to make something like this locally!”

So yes, I was excited at my latest discovery so you can just imagine how delighted I was when the creative people behind Kahone agreed to send me a box for review. I actually got the box a couple of months ago and I really apologize for posting about this great product just now. I was actually waiting until the little guy is willing and cooperative to try out the painting bit so I can include it in my post but to no avail. After a few months of cajoling and convincing, I had no choice but to give up and post about my review without featuring the painting part of the box we got. Read on to know more about this great product for kids that I am sure homeschooling and non-homeschooling mums will like! :)

KaHone in a nutshell

products, product review, products for children, educational activities for children

According to their website, Kahone is:

a monthly subscription themed activity box that was created out of passion for some hands-on fun that promotes learning as well. Each box contains all the materials and instructions for 3-4 activities revolving about one theme that a parent and child can do together!

What is brilliant about Kahone? It makes it easy and convenient for mums to have themed fun and educational activities on the ready whenever their little ones’ moods strike. It also saves mums the hassle of hopping from one book store or craft shop after another as it contains everything they will need for the activities inside the box. And what’s even better? These boxes are delivered right at our doorsteps every month!

Mums can also choose from different KaHone options that fits their budget. Available packages include:

  • KaHone {Full} ~ the original offering where all materials and instructions for 3 to 4 activities are all in one box
  • KaHone Lite ~ this is ideal for parents who already have basic craft materials at home and do not have a need for additional scissors, colored pens, watercolors, or glue
  • KaHone Expanded {Full or Lite} ~ the latest KaHone offering ideal for siblings who wish to do activities together. Each KaHone Expanded box comes with two sets of materials siblings can work on together

Mum’s two cents

products, product review, products for children, educational activities for children

The little man and I both enjoyed the activities included in our KaHone box, except for the Paint The Bugs part, that is {but I am hoping we get to enjoy it one day soon, so the pack is just stashed in our arts and crafts supplies box until the little guy is ready to experience it!}. I made the little guy paint the bodies of our Wooden Clip insects and assist me in gluing their little parts together. I pretty much made the DIY Firefly on my own, but Jared did have a wonderful time playing with my masterpiece afterwards. I thought it was kinda cute, too! ^_^

So, I guess it is easy to tell that we enjoyed our KaHone box a lot! I am sure a lot of mums will do, too. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • thinking of fun activities to do with your tots can be way too taxing so to have someone put up a box filled with wonderful things to do to bond with the little ones is not just convenient, it is a God-send!
  • I love the fact that the poster paint included in the box is made of safe and kid-friendly materials for mum’s peace of mind
  • I also commend that KaHone utilizes recycled and earth-friendly materials in their arts and craft box
  • The KaHone box we received was made of a softer material, but they have made changes since then and came out with boxes that are sturdier. A perfect idea, so the little guys can upcycle them as a catch-all for their toys, books or arts and crafts supplies.
  • The activities included in the box are well thought of and provides children with optimal learning and sensory experience
  • I thought it would be practical if they would come up with a version that would no longer include basic arts and crafts material that are readily available in every household with little children
  • KaHone is perfect for homeschooling mums and tots, as well as for mums who would like to have fun activities readily available at home for their children

Two thumbs up for KaHone, but do not take my word for it. Order your box now and experience KaHone, too! :)

Disclaimer: I was provided a free KaHone box for review purposes, nevertheless, the opinion stated here are 100% my own.
