The idea around Cooper and Kid is something I’ve been passionate about for a while: helping give parents who want to spend time with their kids, but don’t know what do, an idea (or two or three). The Cooper and Kid concept is a kit subscription model for delivering an awesome, themed, box filled with great projects, toys and ideas on a regular basis.
Right now, they’re starting out easy. They have one kit available: How Things Fly. It’s a great package – the box even turns into an airplane! Also included are a catapult kit, a rocket kit, and more. What may be the coolest thing is the care with which the projects are presented:
- Educational via discovery
- Hands-on building
- Themed for both dads and kids
- Multi-activity (6-9 activities)
- Geography Neutral (i.e. no snow required)
- Gender Neutral
- A catalyst for self-expression and creativity
- Both Nostalgic and Current
There’s a sense of both style and whimsy in the contents and instructions, and it encourages both fun and learning, which is all we GeekDads ever want.
