Review of FlintoBox

Print Friendly


Flintobox is a year-old Chennai start-up which sells toys, conceptualised by educators, prototyped by designers, and manufactured by top-of-the-line printers. The toys are shipped in a box to customers every month, which have activites  ”something to create, something to read, something to play, something to explore, with a bonus fun activity thrown in,” says Co-founder Arunprasad Durairaj, 32 , So this is what i read about Flintobox before buying it and now I definitely cannot deny it!!!! FlintoBox is a well-designed kit  I would say for kids from four onwards, kids below this age group will need parental guidance. This month’s Flinto Edition was on Numbers and it was exceptionally good. Flinto box contains all the materials required along with simple guidelines and contents. What I loved is the combination of different activities this box had, it’s difficult to choose which activity you should start firs

6The box contained:

Jollyville Farmers Market

This game of buying and selling reminded me of Business Game which  we use to play in our childhood and I guess I was more excited on seeing the game board before my kiddo. This game is undoubtedly a  best way  to teach your kids numbers, counting and  money transactions.

Number Explorer

A treasure hunt inside​ your own home,​with a Flinto cape, pirate map, sand clock, stickers. This is an excellent collection to be played with a group, so don’t forget to call your kiddies buddies and let them have a gala time exploring treasure in your home.

Mosaic Magic

The ‘Mosaic Magic’ should be every mother’s favourite as it helps the child learn shapes, colours and numbers with ease.  An excellent collection by Flinto team to teach the above concept in a fun learning manner to kids. Loved every bit of it.

Flinto and the missing eggs book

Flinto and the missing eggs book was very engaging and my son loved me reading him every page, now this book has been added to my son collection library. He loves reading before going to bed.


Such an activity box are definitely a boon for kids and parents. How can kids benefit from the flinto box :

  • Extend their thinking pattern beyond conventional thought process

  • Develop higher thinking skills

  • Enhance multicultural understandings

  • Building self esteem

  • Gain positive emotional responses to learning

  • Engage through a variety of learning styles

Overall it encourages children to use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Building something on their own endows them with a confidence in their abilities to make individual decisions and choices. It’s a quite engaging group activity  so more the kids merrier is the fun. It also a very sensible gifting option, as these days there are countless options in the market to confuse parents finding a correct gift, With Flinto Box you just can’t go wrong!!!

    Hi All,
    This is not at all worth what you pay for. You can get all the items for less than INR200 of each box in your local stationary/fancy shops. My son is happy about the Carton box and not the items!! If you are least bothered about money, then you can subscribe for this.

    The real fun starts with their delivery, it’s completely unprofessional. They are partnered with FedEx, where you can track the shipment. It keeps on changes the “Schedule Delivery” and no commitment and no one takes responsibility. The Flinto team never responds to your mails. In case you call them and escalate the issue, you would get prompt reply that “If it’s Chennai, they can track other wise we are helpless”. Please think twice if are residing out side Chennai before subscribing. As this is online sales, Flinto team is least bothered about the Customer’s concerns.

    p.s:This is for Flinto Team: my order number is 956006, hope that you knew the background of this message.

    I am really dissapointed with your service.
    My order for 3 boxes has not still reached my kid. This is been booked on Dec 17th 2015.
    I was told it will be dispatched on 1st of Jan. But today is 10th of Jan and we have not yet received it. On 5th I called up the customer service to hear that the product will be delayed. If so why didn’t you inform me. This need to be rectified.
    Your customers service representative promised me to do special speed courier and send it to me by next day. It’s 10th today.
    I wish to cancel all the 3 orders I have placed.

    Thank you

    Do you provide any options of combinations the box contains? My nephew is just above two years and he is very active. So, just wanted to know if Flintobox is a surprise or may we know what’s inside and accordingly select the suiting option.
