Innovation Birmingham startup Buckt has today launched a new product to help combat the boredom of Coronavirus lockdown.
'Buckt Home’ is a unique subscription box that gives subscribers five mystery activities and things to do each month from the comfort of their own home.
With the UK currently confined to their houses due to lockdown restrictions, the product aims to help beat boredom and improve the mental health and wellbeing of people across the country.
Each box will include physical products such as crafting and baking kits, digital entertainment including live streams of theatre shows, exclusive online classes and courses as well as a whole range of other unique treats.
The business is also working with activity providers around the country to create digital versions of their products. This includes escape rooms, sports teams and cinemas.
This is the newest product from the team at Buckt. Their award winning flagship product ‘Buckt Go’ is the UK’s only tickets and activities subscription box. Every month subscribers in the West Midlands and Greater Manchester receive five mystery tickets to attractions in their region, and to date the company has served over 5000 people.
Buckt Home aims to translate that fun to a national audience with activities that can be done at home.
When asked about the launch and Coronavirus, Buckt founder Daniel Bridgewater stated: “We had a lot of people asking about what we could do to help them during this time and it got us thinking. There is a huge demand for fun things to do at home so we’re confident this is tackling a huge problem and will be beneficial to a lot of people.”
He continued: “The original Buckt box is about inspiring people to try new things in a way that is easy, convenient and affordable. We’ve managed to translate that into a package that anyone can do, in any region, from the comfort of their own home”
Buckt Home will cost just £25 for five activities which can be completed by everyone in the household. Each box will contain different activities every month worth an average of £60.
The first box will be delivered to subscribers on the 1st June and will be a monthly subscription which will continue after the lockdown restrictions have ended.
