Frequently Asked Questions

We design each toy to be a little bit challenging for kids 8-12+, in the same way a good puzzle is challenging. But ours comes with a step-by-step illustrated instruction booklet along with a video of Mark Rober walking kids through each step. We test with 8-12 year olds extensively and prototype for months to make sure each toy is a smooth and enjoyable build. With the help of the video, the instruction booklet, and a dash of tenacity, kids can successfully and independently build and play with Build Box. 

CrunchLabs Build Boxes are designed for kids ages 8-12+, but plenty of other kids and adults have enjoyed them too! We test every product with third-party testing agencies to ensure the products comply with US and EU safety standards for kids ages 8-years and older. Parents and guardians can gauge the appropriateness for their kids, but we have worked hard to ensure a consistently enjoyable experience for the intended age range. 

We test every product with third-party testing agencies to ensure the products comply with US and EU safety standards for kids ages 8-years and older. The safety standards check to ensure the toy is safe and sturdy for its intended play and that unsafe chemicals haven’t been used in the toy production.

Nope! Everything you need to make the toy is included in the Build Box, even batteries. You will need an Internet connection and a kid-safe device to watch the Mark Rober video episode, but you don’t need the video episode to complete the build! In the booklet, we do offer ideas for additional games and challenges that may require other materials – but those are supplemental and not required for the main build and play.

If on the off chance there are parts missing, go to your account dashboard and visit the webpage for your Build Box. Fill out the form to request missing parts. If you have further questions contact help@crunchlabs.com.  

It depends! We try to make each build 30 to 60 minutes on average for an 8-12 year old. If your kid likes to take a lot of breaks for snacks or to run around in circles, they can always come back later to finish.

Currently, we don’t offer an option to purchase individual Build Boxes (though that may come down the road.) If you want to be the first to hear about what we’ve got in store, join our mailing list!

Our build boxes are designed for one user, so we recommend a subscription for each kid.

Kinda. Potentially. Contact our customer support (help@crunchlabs.com), and we can figure out a solution together. In the meantime, we’re working on some interesting ideas for schools and teachers. Stay tuned.

Nope. Everything you need to complete each build comes in the box each month. These are just extras.

Not necessarily, but the Build Box extras are designed to be, well, extras for specific toys in the CrunchLabs Build Box subscription.

    6 Year old future engineer

    My 6 year old grandson, Luke, built his first kit (flywheel). Although he is only 6 he has an uncanny mechanical ability and grasps your engineering concepts easily. He thoroughly enjoyed the disk shooter but was thinking there must be a better way to aim it. I gave him some suggestions for a simple scope and we made it and installed it on the disc thrower and it actually worked although future improvements are on the engineering schedule!!! Keep up the good work.

    Love it.

    My son is at the very edge of being a little too old for the build boxes, but I started a subscription anyway. We put the first build together. It was a great way to spend time with him doing something educational and having fun with the build after. The family time and educational value we got is priceless and worth the $30 bucks.

    6 year old absolutely fascinated

    I subscribed to crunchlabs as soon as I saw them available. I wasn't sure if the 6 yo would be able to handle the boxes since they are technically for an older age group. But with gentle guidance, he's mostly successful at building them on his own! In fact, the first box we got he tried to do it himself without supervision and he mishandled the one-time-use foam pieces and we had to improvise an imperfect solution. But when I mentioned he could use the excess foam from the 2nd box to repair the first machine better than what we used, he repaired it on his own initiative without adult help! Every time he sees Mark Rober or crunchlabs, he declares he will be an engineer when he grows up! Thank you so much for these innovative learning boxes. It's wonderful when I ask him to find linkages in his home and he surprises me with a linkage I didn't consider from one of his toys.
