This was such a fun box! My daughter and I both have a shared love/fascination with astronomy so this Mission To Space theme was right up our alley. Here’s what was inside: 

Expand your knowledge of space with this Ken Jennings’ Junior Genius Guide. These guides are very well done – and informative! – delivering great information and detail at a kid appropriate level. 

I love when OwlCrate Jr includes patches – we are big patch lovers in this household – and I love the NASA vibes this “mission to space” merit badge gives me. Iron onto a backpack, pencil pouch or denim jacket! Designed by Erin Gibbs. 

Sanity & Tallulah glow-in-the-dark washi tape! My daughter adored the graphic novel Sanity & Tallulah and so she was very happy to receive this item, and it glows in the dark! How cool is that?? Designed by Nikki Smits.

OwlCrate Jr worked with super talented artist Pedro Days to create this inflatable mars beach ball. While it definitely made me light headed after having to inflate this, it was worth it to see all the wonderful drawings and characters!! A beach ball should be properly enjoyed outdoors, but that hasn’t stopped us from tossing this around in the house … we are rebels that way! 😉 

Next up is this Mars Rover landscape sticker designed by Mel Matthews. I think this large vinyl sticker will look great on the back of a laptop or iPad case! 

This glow-in-the-dark galaxy star set gave me serious flashbacks to my own childhood! Anyone else have these stars on their walls/ceiling? Included double sided tape will help you create the galaxy collage of your dreams … 

And lastly, the monthly book pick! A Rover’s Story by Newberry Honor winning author Jasmine Warga, is a highly anticipated middle grade release of 2022 for me, so I was so thrilled this was this month’s book pick! Featuring an exclusive OwlCrate Jr cover and an included author signature plate, author note, as well as the 10th character card in the 2022 trading card collection by Andrew Kolb.
