Here you will find a little bit about our team, our roots and our mission!
Jason and Michelle Smith, nestled in small town Ontario with their three kids and a few business ventures, added Curiosity Box to the family in the fall of 2017. Jason and Michelle enjoy spending time outdoors, going on family vacations (which usually include a roller coaster or two!), and giving back, whether it be within their own community, province and county, or on an international level. Jason and Michelle look forward to continuing working with the Curiosity Box community to bring fun and educational craft boxes to children from every corner of the world.

The concept behind Curiosity Box was born in 2014 out of necessity. Cassie Krygsman, a full-time working mother of two, struggled to find the time and energy to create crafts and activities that were and engaging for her kids. After realizing that other working parents shared her struggles, Cassie created Curiosity Box to meet their needs. During her launch of the business, Cassie successfully grew the company and won several awards and accolades. We are very grateful for the foundation that she built, and for her help during our transition to the new Curiosity Box team. We wish Cassie all the best, as she now pursues her other goals and dreams!
