The latest rage among mothers of young children is the Intellikit by Firstcry. Haven’t heard of them yet? Let me explain why they are so popular!
Designed to cater to the age groups 2-3 years (Little Masters), 3-4 years (Everyday Heroes) and 4-6 years (Young Professionals), these activity boxes are the perfect way to keep kids away from screen time. The motto of these kits is asking parents to “Take the #NoScreenDay pledge.”
On the 1st anniversary of The South Delhi Playdates Group, Firstcry sent across nine trial boxes of the Intellikit for kids between the ages of 2-3 years. These included 2 activities,
3 worksheets, 3 Intellicards, a sample calendar of activities and a sample development tracker. The activities were designed to engage the attention of toddlers instantly. The two-piece puzzles were a big hit, as was the Velcro sticking activity and the star-shaped stickers. The theme of the trial kit was ‘Space’, and the material was completely in-sync with that.
There are a lot of activity boxes and kits in the market, so what makes the Intellikit by Firstcry stand out? Let’s have a look at some of its unique features
Just the Right Number of Activities The main kits have 8 activities and 10 worksheets which are just the correct number to keep the kids engaged over a few weeks.
Can Do Each Activity More Than Once Young toddlers often want to return to an activity they enjoyed, and the Intellikit allows you to do that. There are a large number of stickers; the two-piece puzzles can be done any number of times as can the Velcro activity.
Contain Easy-to-handle Material The kits allow little hands to sift through and choose what they want to do.
Added Benefits of the Calendar and Development Tracker
The Intellikit enables parents to monitor their children’s progress as well as provide extra activities to perform during the month!
The Kits Are Reasonably Priced Most of the other kits in the market are quite expensive, which makes parents hesitate to make that kind of investment, especially for young toddlers who have short attention spans.
Overall, the Intellikit by Firstcry is well-designed, easy to use and engaging. I have seldom come across 9 kids in a room sitting in such silence! They were all enthralled with the activities and sat and completed quite a few of them in one
As part of the group’s promotion, Firstcry has offered a 70% discount (yes, that’s a huge discount!) and a large number of moms have already placed orders for the same. The interesting thing is that mothers with older kids have also ordered the Intellikit designed for the 3-4 years and 4-6 years age group.
All in all, I’d recommend the Firstcry Intellikit program as a mom who is interested in her child’s development and also needs to keep her kid engaged and busy. The activities can be repeated over and over, and they never stop being fun!
