Review - Junior Explorers Club Subscription

This week we got the opportunity to try out a subscription from Junior Explorers. My son is on the younger side for this subscription, but he is very interested in animals and science, so we gave it a shot.

The little guy was super excited to receive a box in the mail just for him. I think this is one of the very best things about a subscription box; kids eagerly anticipate its arrival and have great time opening up a new package every month.

The first month of a Junior Explorers Club subscription consists of a Welcome Kit. The box it arrives in is the Official Junior Explorers Trunk. In it is a Field Guide, stickers to decorate your trunk, a BPA free water bottle, temporary tattoos, the Official Wristband, a Collectible Pin, a Junior Explorer ID Card, a Mission Envelope, and a Biomes of the World Map.

Subsequent months of the Junior Explorers subscriptions are each a different theme "Mission." The second month of Junior Explorers is an Arctic Mission Kit with a Mission-themed Activity Book, a Mission Envelope, an Official Mission Pin, photos and cool facts cards, a wristband, animal flashcards, stickers, Ecosystem Fact Sheet, a Mission Letter, animal toys, and temporary tattoos. 

The Mission Envelopes come with a special code to unlock your mission online. The online mission is made up of 5 mini games which include educational material, games, and activities which are comparable to an educational app you would purchase for a device and the child is tasked with a mission like rescuing an animal or tracking migration.

There is a lot to learn about animals, nature, and wildlife in this subscription box. I feel strongly about protecting our planet and enjoyed the concept to bring awareness and education about conservation to the younger set. 

These subscriptions help a child gain a full understanding of all the differing biomes on our planet including geology, climate, and what wildlife lives in each area. They will also learn all the important information about many creatures in each area as well as interesting and little known facts and trivia through facts sheets, cards, games, and activities.

My son enjoyed putting the stickers on the Official Junior Explorers Trunk, and each month you can add more stickers from each theme. 

He also had a lot of fun covering himself in the temporary tattoos that you receive in each subscription. 

The animal toys were very tiny, but cute nonetheless. 

We enjoyed going through the field guide, spreading out the Biomes Map and naming and searching for animals. The online experience was quite interesting as well because you can actually interact with the map and click and learn about every creature that is represented.

The Junior Explorers Club is geared towards children who are 6-11 and I think this would be a great way to have something fun come in the mail for them every month and keep them excited about learning about conservation and wildlife. It can also be just as much fun for the little kids if you are willing to walk them through everything and enjoy it with them. 

The Junior Explorers subscription also makes a great gift. You can choose a 1 month subscription, or multiple month subscriptions at a discount. Check out all the details on

Right my readers can use promo code MOTM for 50% off the first month so you can try it out and see if your kids enjoy it, too!
