Collectible Cards. Every Wonder Crate box includes a Heroes collectible card that kids can play with.
They also provided instructions on how to play it!
How to play: Shuffle and deal all cards face down making a pile for each player to hold in their hand. Each player turns over the top card so only they can see it. Select a player to go first. That player reads out a category and its value from their card. For example, “Curiosity 58” or “Persistence 46”. The birth year of the hero can also be used. All other players the read out the value for that same category on their own card. The person with the highest number wins that round and collects the cards from the other players, adding them to the bottom of their pile. Play then moves to the player to the left.
This month’s box includes 4 Hero cards featuring Sally Ride, Maya Angelou, Malala Yousafzai, and Frank Lloyd Wright. There’s also a guide for the positive trait symbols on each card.
This is fun to play while learning new things about the inspiring personalities!

Born in Wisconsin in 1867, Frank Lloyd Wright became obsessed with a set of building blocks his mother had given to him on his ninth birthday. He grew up to become the father of organic architecture and the greatest American architect of all time, having designed more than 1,100 buildings during his lifetime. These included private homes – such as the stunning Fallingwater, churches, temples, a hotel, and the world-famous Guggenheim Museum in New York City. When asked how he could create so many designs, he answered, “I can’t get them out fast enough.” Frank Lloyd Wright was a man ahead of his time who could barely keep up with his own ideas!
The back cover lists some facts about Frank Lloyd Wright.
My son enjoyed reading the book about the life of America’s greatest architects!
It also included events that shaped his life as an architect.
It includes the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. After the incident, many architects took part in the city’s rebuilding efforts and it includes Frank Lloyd Wright.
