After receiving a Mysmartkid box, aged 2-3 years, for our son. 
It was delivered promptly and to my front door. 
Matthew loves his little owl backpack, his puppets, wooden puzzle and loved having fun with his playdough apparatus. Mom has enjoyed having her very informative parent book.
The owl backpack makes for wonderful creative play and the joy of carrying their own stuff 
around, on their little backs.

The handpuppets are a fun extension of the pretend play that young children engage in so readily.
 It helps young children develop creative skills by forcing them to use their imaginations. 
The real world becomes more real to children who have opportunities to play with puppets, and encourage better vocabulary.

The wooden puzzle Forms part of the development of doing puzzles , from  early childhood right through to adulthood. Puzzles are an important educational learning tool for toddlers and young children as they provide many skills , mental learning benefits and opportunities. It improves their self esteem, social skills, hand eye co ordination, fine motor development , problem solving and cognitive development
