WonderBoxx launches India\'s first age-specific learning tool-kits

WonderBoxx, an early childhood learning monthly subscription service that delivers hands-on child-driven products that promote creativity and fuel curiosity has unveiled India’s first age specific learning tool kit today in the Capital. The product which is priced between Rs 1200-1500 per kit - is designed specifically for children from the age groups of 1-8 year and is delivered across the country.

WonderBoxx, is the brainchild of IIT Kanpur alumnus Deepanshu Arora & Parita Parekh, an alumnus of Brown University. At the launch event Parita Parekh & Deepanshu Arora, Co-founders said “WonderBoxx takes the child on a new inspiring journey of imagination and creativity, every month. We have created WonderBoxx through a design-propelled process that ensures that the product is child-driven and stimulates action and enquiry. To ensure that children develop the attributes of a lifelong learner such as curious, imaginative, adventurous, intuitive, perceptive and playful and a grounded creative worldview, our Boxxes are designed to work in continuum to promote on-going investigation and exploration.”

WonderBoxx enables the child to create a home lab, to construct ideas, to lead hands-on inquiry and to develop a culture of knowledge. WonderBoxx is designed keeping in mind the essential need to provide children with contexts that encourage exploration, inquiry and action. It follows different guiding philosophies for every different age group. For 1 to 3 year, it explores learning through imaginative and sensory play; for 3 to 5 year, it provides materials to facilitate exploration, creation and learning and for 5 to 8 year, it delivers resources for children to discover and innovate.

When ask to Mehak Ahuja, mother of a 3 year old said, “It is extremely important to create an environment to support young children’s creativity and creative learning. Through play and imagination, a child can fulfill wishes and overcome fears of unpleasant experiences. As a young mother I have to assure that positive play experiences and holistic learning leads to positive emotional well-being of my child. WonderBoxx is indeed a wonderful opportunity for my kid to instill the act of self-expression.”

WonderBoxx is designed with a vision to ensure initiative from children. It aims at instilling curiosity and creativity to help the children develop into life-long learners. The toys, games, concepts, ideas, materials, activities, techniques and knowledge in every box is made such so that the child learns instinctively by playing and experimenting, breaking and making, constructing and creating, and tinkering and exploring.

Kenneth Wong, Chair of Education Department at Brown University, USA, and part of the advisory board at WonderBoxx said, ‘Play is the best form of learning. A child makes sense of the outside world using all five senses. Play employs all five senses, and hence is much more fun than academics that tap into a maximum of two - sight and sound. However, it is kind of a difficult task to break down each learning area into fun activities for the kids to do. Also, the best form of learning happens when the child has independence in terms of thought process and also the opportunity to act upon the material at hand. This is precisely where Wonderboxx comes in.’
