Project Description

“As technology advances at a broadband clip, carrying with it expectations for kids to learn and develop faster via all manner of gadgets, it’s easy to lose sight of their basic needs and nature. blue manatee boxes provide a reminder and opportunity for families to slow down and reconnect with the simple yet fundamental joys of reading, playing, and spending time together using one of the most robust learning tools yet devised — a cardboard box.”
