In the news
"Co-founded and owned by Erin McGarry, who is of half-Filipino descent, this monthly travel and exploration subscription box series takes youngsters on a journey without having to leave home."
"Created by a global team of educators, parents and adventurers, these monthly kits transport imaginations from the deepest seas to the highest mountains around the globe."
"Not just fun facts but learning about history, unique foods, art, music, introduction to languages and more. Kids love to see how other kids live. Let our kids become global citizens so that they are curious explorers, empathetic, understanding and appreciative."
"By not having more women founders, we’re neglecting enormous market needs that might not otherwise be met by men who aren’t as familiar or interested in the space... when 99% of your customer base is made up of women, and 80% of startups are founded by men, that’s a recipe for sub-par results."
"Womple Studios may have just come up with the perfect museum gift shop souvenir with its DinoGlows: plush dinosaur toys that turn inside out to reveal an as-anatomically-correct-as-a-plush-toy-can-be glowing skeleton version of the same dino. It’s another clever way to sneak some learning into playtime."
"Travel the world from your living room with this subscription box that inspires adventure and cultural curiosity. Each box includes an early-reader chapter book, fold-out map and country guide with kid-friendly recipes, craft activities, collectible items and stickers."
"Best For: Elementary kids who love hands-on projects. WompleBox is another fun way for students to explore the world through their imagination."
"WompleBox is a subscription box for kids that gives them a sense of adventure as they learn about new places with each monthly delivery. This box is designed by experts in storytelling and education for children ages 6-11 to inspire them to explore the world."
