The Get Qurious Maker Box aims to mix the structure of reading with the engagement of toys and videogames. The creators want to gamify education for kids aged 4-9 using an augmented reality system.

The kit includes four main parts: story cards that breath life into classic stories, masks that enable children to act as characters in the stories, stickers that let users alter and customize the stories, and puzzles that activate when they are completed. This AR play experience combines physical game pieces with an immersive digital world, which kids can explore using the Get Qurious app.

The Maker Box offers hands-on creative play based on the traditional story of the Three Little Pigs. Exciting interactive games, puzzles and activities all combine to foster curiosity, logic, thinking, motor skill development, reading, and imagination.

Kids can scan each of the 12 chapter story cards to hear the story of the Three Little Pigs and watch the animation on a smart device, with the AR app bringing the fairy tale to life. Then they can play a part in the story by putting on one of the play masks, looking into the device’s camera, and tapping the microphone button to record. The Puzzle Builder activity lets kids build their own house just like the Three Little Pigs, which they can scan to see the house in 3D. They can also place the reusable stickers in their matching shapes in the sticker book and scan them to hear fun new stories and alternative versions.

The Get Qurious Maker Box is available to purchase online for $24.99. You can take a look inside the box below:
