What is Letterbox Lab?
Letterbox Lab is the kids’ science kit reinvented to be more fun, more colourful, more convenient and more educational. A series of 12 innovative science kits delivered to your home that build upon each other as you make your way through the series.
This is a science kit that arrives through your letterbox containing everything your child needs to start playing with science. But it’s much more than that. It’s the beginning of an adventure that will take your child over the rainbow, across space and into the inner workings of the natural world.
At Letterbox Lab we are not trying to make science fun. We are celebrating the fact that science is fun. As Albert Einstein said, “Play is the highest form of research”.
Letterbox Lab is available to purchase as a science subscription box. You sign up and then receive everything you need to do exciting science experiments every month or every two months (decide on sign up). But this subscription is completely no commitment, you can cancel at any time. You can also put your subscription on hold so you can receive a science kit whenever you want – birthday presents, Christmas presents and rainy day activities sorted for years!
If you’d rather not sign up for a subscription you can buy these innovative kids’ science kits as individual purchases.
There are two different versions of Letterbox Lab: the Explore box (for age 6+) or the Investigate box (for age 8+). The boxes fit through most letterboxes and contain everything but the kitchen sink, so you can spend less time picking up parcels and dashing to the chemist, and more time playing with science.
You don’t need to buy any extra materials to use with Letterbox Lab. We provide everything but the kitchen sink. Over time your collection of cool lab equipment grows and grows.

Every box contains full instructions, and all of the activities are linked together as a story rather than as a theme, so it doesn’t matter if your child prefers slippery slime, fizzing reactions or sparkling stars – they will love every box.
This is more than a chemistry set, Letterbox Lab covers a range of science and engineering topics. Our cheeky lab assistants will guide you and your children through every activity and be on hand to ask thought-provoking questions and invite your child to experiment. The online resources that accompany every box include a video to show you how to complete every experiment, as well as suggestions for taking your experiments further and trying additional activities.
