Internet retailer Amazon is at it again with another great idea: a subscription box that gets kids interested in STEM.

Subscription boxes have been a trend for several years, offering customers anything from clothing and makeup to shaving supplies and snacks. Now, Amazon started a subscription box for children to receive age-appropriate science, technology, engineering, and math toys.

The subscriptions are divided into three age options—ages 3-4, 5-7, and 8-13—to ensure each little subscriber receives toys they can really play with, understand, and learn from. According to Amazon, each box contains a single toy that will vary in topics from “from robotics to natural sciences” for $19.99 per month plus applicable taxes. The subscription can be canceled at any time.

Though no customers have received their boxes yet, the box already has a few glowing reviews on Amazon for simply being a great gift idea. At this time, the STEM Club subscription box can only be shipped to the United States.
