We probably know that a child’s brain develops from birth to age 5. Yes, 90% of a child’s brain develops by age 5. After birth, the average size of an infant’s brain is about a quarter of size of an adult’s brain. It keeps growing to 80% of size of adult’s brain by age 3 and becomes fully grown by the age 5. Hence age 2 to 5 is the most crucial time for a child’s character development. As a responsible parent, we should engage our child in the right activities during this period.
A child’s brain development is influenced by many factors like relationship or bonding with child, environment and playing activities. So we should get them some fun “brain- building” activities that actually help in stimulating a child’s overall character.
In the twenty-first century, I think every child is a master in “Gadget-o-logy”. There are barely any kids who have never played games or watched rhymes on a gadget. Gradually they are trapping themselves into a bad addiction.
Being a child of a super busy mom, my daughter was not an exception. I handed over her gadget when I had some important work to attend. Needless to say, she became an addict. I was so heartbroken when I saw my daughter spending hours on gadgets. That time I promised myself not to engage her in such things rather keep her busy in some productive ways.
There is one amazing concept which made this journey quite easy, fun and educative, that is XploraBox. Xplorabox is a kids activity monthly subscription Box. Read on to know more about my experience with XploraBox.

My Experience with XploraBox
If you are following me on my social media then would know that we recently visited Puri for a vacation. It was my daughter’s first trip. So I and my husband could not realize how would she react or how could we make her occupied during the train journey. Believe me, I started searching for activity toys and material on the internet. Suddenly I came across XploraBox on Amazon and I placed an order without a second thought. The box arrived a day before our journey. We did not give the box to her, we saved it for our trip.
Everything went so well, but the day of our returning, the train was delayed by 5 hours. We had to wait at the railway station. We woke up at 4 a.m., waited at the railway station for more than 5 hours and then traveled 8 hours at a stretch by train. After all this hassle it was quite natural for a 3 years old kid to be cranky and grumpy. As usual, she started bawling and throwing tantrum. Like super exhausted adults, we barely had some energy left for keeping her occupied.
And here came the XploraBox to rescue-
Started on a train journey, her playing with XploraBox continued till two weeks.
What do I like about the Box?
Extremely engaging content
Fun learning activities.
Build up kid’s reasoning skill.
Materials are safe to use for babies.
No tool needed as everything has already been cut and has a sticker on one side. You have to take them out and stick on to the place.
Perfect gifting option.
My Rating- 4.5/5
Final Verdict- Finally my daughter is glued to something that does not cause any harm to her eyes and brain development and I’m super happy about that.
