Ordered this as a birthday gift for my turning 8 year old grandson. He could not wait to get the box opened & get going on some of the different activities. He actually took it along to the park that day & started w/the dinosaur dig activity. He was happy for hours working on some of the activities all by himself & others he did need guidance & help. All in all I think it is a great gift for young children that love or have an interest in science.
This was the perfect gift for little hand. Soft and squishy. My grandkids love the I had to order 2 sets to avoid arguments over them. Will order more cause 2 set are still not enough.
I bought this for my 6-yr-old daughter who says she wants to be a scientist when she grows up. This has provided great one-one-one activity time for the two of us over Christmas break. It definitely requires adult involvement, but all you need is right in the box and in the instruction book. Makes it simple and fun. No extra fuss. We enjoyed making colored jelly crystals, learning about base and acid, and exploding and underwater volcano with baking soda and citric acid and red cabbage powder. It makes a mess, but not too bad. We have been able to do 2 experiments in a 45-minute time frame. We've done the first 8 experiments so far.
