You didn’t think you could love Target more that you already do. It turns out you can. This week Kiwi Crate and Target announced they’re teaming up to sell an exclusive line of craft crates in 250 of their stores nationwide. Read on to get the lowdown on the goods, which package everything you need to make an original, kid-friendly craft. Then beeline it to the store (as if you needed another excuse).
What’s in the crates
The four single-project crates (look for them in the toy section’s green aisle) are most appropriate for little builders and crafters ages four through eight. Each features a specific project, with themes including Pom Pom Pets, Racing Wind Cars, Modern Art and Flying Kites. They come in pretty, gift-worthy boxes and are fully loaded. For example, inside the Pom Pom Pet crate you’ll find three colorful skeins of yarn, a special wooden winder, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, noses, feet and an adoption certificate.
Beyond the craft project, the crate also features a fun magazine so your kids can dive into additional puzzles, hands-on activities and lessons that relate to the theme of the crate. So in the Racing Wind Cars crate your kiddo will get a magazine all about wind power.
Crates at your fingertips
Kiwi Crates is known for its subscription service, which delivers craft boxes to your door each month. This exclusive partnership makes its products available anytime — perfect for that last-minute birthday present, afternoon craft project or surprise gift for your kiddos when you’re strolling the aisles of Target. And, apparently there’s more cooking between these two companies; Kiwi Crate hopes to offer more products in Target stores later this year, so stay tuned.
Each kit costs $14.99 and is available at these Target stores nationwide.
What do you think of this new partnership? Are these crates something that you’ll be seeking out during your next trip to Target?
