checkbox array help

I am making a rather large form for one of my sites and I have a section asking interests using checkboxes. I wanted all of the checkboxes to have the same name but a value corrisponding to the interest. I then attempted to call these variables in php with the post command but I am having issues.

<input name="checkbox[]" type="checkbox" value="value1" />

<input name="checkbox[]" type="checkbox" value="value2" />

<input name="checkbox[]" type="checkbox" value="value3" />  

<input name="checkbox[]" type="checkbox" value="value4" />

<input name="checkbox[]" type="checkbox" value="value5" />

<input name="checkbox[]" type="checkbox" value="value6" />

now in the php script I want to use each value but for example's sake lets just echo the selected values

$box = is_array($_POST['checkbox']);

echo $box;

except all I get is the word "Array" to echo. What am I doing wrong?

That only checks if it exists if I'm not mistaking.

Maybe this will help you:
