Testimonials

We are always so excited to receive the Mysteries in Time package! The package itself is fun and on theme, it’s addressed to my daughter (who doesn’t love getting personalized mail?!), and the magazine, book, stickers, and bookmark all tie in together so well. The thought and care that goes into creating true and kid-appropriate history content is phenomenal!

Shannon Webb

My Son (aged 9) received this as a Christmas present and he absolutely loves it. He can’t wait for the next one to arrive. The quality of the items are great and the magazine is full of interesting information with lots of fun activities to do along the way. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in History.
