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
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.
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.
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

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!!!
