Maker Themed Subscriptions Boxes Survey – Help us add them all! @adafruit #adafruit
Box subscription services are on the rise. A big push in the market appears to be in apparel and cosmetics (even my daughter is trying a clothing box).
When I was searching Cratejoy, a marketplace for subscription boxes, and they list 7,005 boxes. Wow!
At Adafruit, we’re focusing on Maker-related boxes, those with a focus on crafts, papercraft, electronics, cardboard craft, and STEM themes. In this area, the number of boxes is a small subset of boxes available overall. There are alot of creative boxes available, which is great for the community!
I’ve made a list of 47 boxes based on the ones found on the web and from ‘best of’ lists. Adafruit’s own Adabox is on the list and there are probably more than 47 out there.
We’d like to get a comprehensive list and post it ensure Makers know the choices they have in the subscription box world.
My list is here, and includes US and UK boxes that I found:
Feel free to look over the list – if you see where additions or changes are needed, edit the spreadsheet and/or share back in the comments! We look forward to spreading the word about all the choices for Makers.
Note: as there are thousands of subscription boxes offered worldwide, we’re focusing on Maker-related boxes from any country.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
