What is included in each box?
Each box delivers an engaging children’s story to provide introductory exposure to Chinese culture and language. The box also includes a magazine and hands-on projects.
How are the crates designed?
Each Bao Box item is hand-picked and thoughtfully chosen to best immerse our adventurers through language, culture, and creativity. The stories may be written in the U.S but are carefully reviewed and proofread by Chinese and Taiwanese friends and Family.
What age range is recommended for Bao Box?
The book The Curious Journal of the Wonder Kids is written originally as a children’s book. However, adults who are curious about learning a new language will also enjoy it. The series does not require previous knowledge of Chinese language as the story is written in English and combines Chinese phrases throughout the story.
Do I have to know Chinese to read the book?
No. Each book is written in English with traditional Chinese characters throughout. No previous knowledge is needed. Just an open mind and readiness to learn.
Will there be other boxes?
Yes. Bao Box started as a passion project, but as the brand grows, new adventures and projects await.
