We tested Toucan Box, so I thought – why not try this craft box as well? Mister Maker is interesting because I believe that his name makes him more interesting to boys.

He is the creator of many craft videos (check out some videos HERE), and he has pared with Toucan Box to create his own crafting box. The first box is free, you should only pay shipping.

This is the box and the contents inside:

The box has the child name printed on the cover, just like the Toucan Box.

It is a tad smaller and has 1 craft inside. The activity book was ok, but nothing special. It is appropriate for 3-4 year-olds. The colors were vibrant and the quality of the printed paper was great, but the content of the activity book seemed as if it was made in a hurry.

I wish they put a labyrinth, a puzzle or maybe a word search inside. A story about the puppets or dialogue to follow with the finished product would also be a nice touch.

Craft materials

As for the craft materials, I have to admit that I am disappointed by the box. The craft materials were so thin and the socks snapped during the puppet making, even though we were very careful. We got two cute stickers and 2 coupons for 50% for 2 new subscribers.

The other sticky parts for the puppet were good and there were a lot of them, so we can use them for another craft. This part of the box was good and they had good quality as well. The eyes for the puppet kept falling off and their back was not sticky enough, so we needed to add glue.

One thing that I like is that the box opens and gives you a picture frame with a nice design, and sturdy cardboard, so you can actually reuse the box.

Finally, here are our puppets. They look pretty nice, and it was fun making them.

All in all, I am not quite pleased with this box. The shipping was around 7 pounds for 2 boxes and I don’t think it was worth it. We ordered 2 boxes for different ages (3 and 7), for our neighbor, and we got exactly the same boxes! If you are interested in affordable craft boxes, Toucan Box would be a better choice. Let me know what you think of in the comments Mister Maker review. Would you order the Mister Maker craft box?

  1. Thanks for the candid review. With so many great boxes out there to try it is nice to have reviews to help weed out the not so great ones.

    1. You’re welcome!
      I wish I found a review before, but since I only paid for shipping, it didn’t turn out so bad in the end.

  2. Well doesn’t this look like so much fun. We’d love to try a box like this!!!!

    1. I agree! This is not so much fun, but there are other boxes out there!
      Try Green Box or Toucan box 🙂

  3. This is really cool and I love all the different activities you can from one box.

    1. There are better ones actually! I will review ToucanBox next time so that you can see a really quality box, which is also affordable!

  4. Thanks for sharing an honest review. Boxes have become all the rage for pretty much anything. They can definitely be fun but it does feel like guessing most of the time.

    1. I couldn’t agree more! I love subscription boxes, but it does feel like a roulette sometimes.
      Especially when you get something you didn’t want – we got 2 craft boxes for different age, and they were completely the same…

  5. This sounds fun. It’s something my daughter, niece, and nephew would enjoy having. Thank you for sharing.

    1. You’re welcome! If you order it, please do a review! I’m curious to see what kind of box would you get. Is it going t be the same or a different one…

  6. I hadn’t heard of this craft subscription box before. It is hard to tell what is good and what isn’t, and it is good to hear about your experience.

    1. I’m glad I could help! It wasn’t that terrible, but I expected a bit more anyway.

  7. This is such a cute and fun subscription box, but I will check out Toucan box!

    1. Make sure that you do! I have 3 Toucan boxes which are waiting to be reviewed but I don’t have enough time for it…
