About the goodies:
Sneak Peek #1: 

Every MISSION TO SPACE box will include a Junior Genius Guide by Jeopardy super champion Ken Jennings, published by @simonkids!

According to Ken, “each book in the series is crammed full of fascinating factoids about some field of knowledge, brought to life by the charming illustrations of Mike Lowery. Each book is structured like a day of school…if school were completely awesome. Seven periods full of facts, trivia, and pop quizzes, along with games for recess, craft projects for art class, recipes for lunch, and so on. Readers who pass the Official Junior Genius Certification Exam at the end of each book will be able to print out a certificate documenting their newfound expertise.”

We are HUGE fans of this series and have actually included two other titles in past boxes, like the Guide to Maps & Geography seen here from our January 2020 box!

Sneak Peek #2: 

Every MISSION TO SPACE box will include an item with a beautiful space landscape, illustrated by @meldrawsMel Matthews is a children’s book illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. Their past clients include Disney, Pixar, Apple, and now…. OwlCrate Jr?? Wow! We couldn’t be more thrilled! 

Sneak Peek #3: 

Every box will include a super cute toy for interplanetary explorers, designed by @pedro.days!

Pedro Days is an illustrator and motion graphics wizard based in Lisbon, Portugal. As soon as we found these space stickers he designed, we knew he had to be a part of our Mission To Space box.

This item will NOT be stickers, but will feature some familiar human and alien characters seen here. Any guesses what it may be??
