You’re a parent. You have two kids at home. They cannot keep their hands off each other, and each other’s stuff. Do you A) Give up immediately. Send them to boarding school. B) Split them up. Send one outside. C) SEND THEM TO THEIR ROOMS.
Trick question – there is no right answer. (Parenting is hard! We’re not here to tell you how to do it.) But with our newest kit, you may have noticed we’re leaning toward C. With the Rule Your Room Kit, kids funnel their energy and creativity into creating inventions that interact with the stuff they already have in their rooms. With the Bits in the box, a kid can animate their posters, protect drawers from siblings, or create a top-secret safe that only they know how to open. The kit is fun, but kids are also developing important skills as they’re creating inventions; skills like critical thinking, creativity, engineering, and perseverance.
The press has been buzzing about the new kit, so we wanted to share a few of our favorite quotes with you:
