Press & Media Mentions

Hello Subscription: "Plum Spark is such a great science-themed activity box! ...The activities are awesome, as my kids learned more about how rockets work along with other tidbits about space. They even got crafty and designed a spacesuit! Everything was put together in a kid-friendly way, so it’s really fun, easy to understand, and enjoyable."
the local MOMS network: "Plum Spark is a Houston-based subscription box delivering fun learning adventures for kids and parents to enjoy together. Each adventure contains a mix of projects, crafts and experiments designed to engage younger (ages 4-9) and older learners alike."
from Engineer to SAHM: "My boys loved building their own rocket, and learning together. The adventure guide included clear and easy to follow instruction...Plum Spark was a great way for us to spend a summer afternoon, learning and making together!"
Playdates & Prosecco: "Plum Spark is filling a gap in the subscription world by providing brain-boosting bonding experiences rooted in science and created by a mama with a Harvard PH.D! Targeted at kiddos ages 4-9, it’s perfect for getting them interested in investigation at a young age."
Calgary's Child: "Polu [founder of Plum Spark] believes that doing science experiments at home is a great way to demonstrate that science is all around us. A good experiment shows kids that science is fundamentally about understanding the world we live in—whether it’s figuring out fun concepts like why milk chocolate melts in our hands or testing which sunblock works the best."

1st science kit

I just talked with my 5 year old granddaughter and she loved the first part of the kit on Indian spices. Her parents also liked the kit and look forward to doing more if it.

Making the kids think and be inspired

Got this as a gift for my nephew and niece. Their mother is a teacher and didn't want the typical video game or off-the-shelf present. So I got this hoping they would like it. Even better. They loved it and so did mom. So kid-approved and mom-approved.

Really nice to see when kids are interacting and actually learning. Reminds me of the time when I'd watch Nova and PBS and be so curious about the world. Thank you.

This just made our day! We're so happy your niece and nephew are enjoying their learning adventures!

Enjoying the adventures!

Great variety of activities!

My kids really enjoyed learning where chocolate comes from, how it is made, tasting it, and doing a craft all centered around chocolate. It was very well thought out box with everything they needed ready to go. We hope to explore other boxes from Plum Spark!

So glad your family enjoyed it! We hope you'll check more Plum Spark learning adventures too!
We maximized family time with Plum Spark!

Our family loved receiving our first Plum Spark learning adventure! The kids (ages 4-8) were super excited to gather around the box that came in the mail for them and open together. My oldest took the lead to pull out and examine each activity one at a time. The topic explored in this month’s box is Yoga, and the activities included were super fun for them! The boys gravitated towards a spice matching activity game, and I, as a mom, was pleasantly surprised with the sophisticated and high quality guide book and spice cards that had facts and information not only relevant and interesting to the small people in my life, but also me as an adult! Who knew cumin oil was used in some perfumes??!! We also loved the yoga cards and poses to try as a family and had a fun experience practicing together. My daughter adored the hands-on inner ear activity, and I appreciated having all of the important parts of the craft perfectly curated for me so less hassle and more family time. Excellent educational product! Couldn’t be happier with our family’s purchase and will definitely be a subscriber!
