TinkerLab Mystery Box
Our unique TinkerLab Mystery Box include a wide variety of materials and loose parts. These supplies are curated to encourage children (and adults) to tap into their imaginations and come up with novel creations and inventions.
From the included supplies, young makers will be inspired to create things like critters, vehicles, and castles. No two creations will be the same!
Each TinkerLab Mystery Box comes complete with our favorite kid-friendly low-heat glue gun, enough bits and baubles to create multiple projects, and building idea inspiration cards.
These boxes will include things like transparent plastic cups, pipe cleaners, pom-poms, sturdy cupcake holders, wood pieces, foam, drink picks, mardi gras beads, and stickers. We like to include unique supplies that you can’t find everywhere and may also source industry cast-offs to get you those one-of-a-kind materials!
Included in the Mystery Box
- Our Favorite Low-Heat Glue Gun
- Package of 15 Glue Sticks
- An awesome Box that’s perfect for storing supplies or adding to a tinkering creation
- Assortment of tinkering supplies that could include pipe cleaners, cups, wood pieces, plastic necklaces, corks, upcycled CD’s, and stickers. (Each box will be different – that’s why it’s a mystery kit!)
Because this kit contains small pieces, this is not recommended for children 3 and under.
