    • Great fun. Christmas gift for 6-yr-old.
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      Verified Purchase

      There was very little in this kit. Very small baggies filled with common household materials. Only good for 2 times of play.
