Bought as a Xmas stocking filler for our 8yr old daughter, this has proven to be a surprising hit. So much so that two of her her friends have pestered their parents to buy one.

You do need to provide some red food dye, veg oil and bottled mineral water but all that is easy to obtain and well worth it. Bubbling volcano ( ok, a reaction causing bubbles to rise within the volcano shaped mould, eventually overflowing at the top) , crystals forming within hours on a cardboard tree were both highlights but the greatest excitement was bringIng the,ahem, swamp monsters to life. Not as bad as it sounds, basically some form of micro shrimp but you can keep them alive and each them grow.

Been going for two weeks now and the interest remains. Highly recommended. Your life is empty unless you have to check your swamp monsters every night!

I think the volcano splurged lava into the pond... Probably placed too close to eachother. Son (6) still loved it.

This thing is by far the worst present my youngest daughter (8 year old) has ever got, she was so excited when she opened it but when we did the first experiment the volcano we followed the instructions precisely and nothing happened, i have a 10 minute video of a small bubble in a volcano followed by me getting a 2l bottle of coke and a pack of mints, much more fun. so dont buy this just buy coke and mints

Our 7 year old was delighted with this and wants another! You need an adult to closely supervise the experiments, newspaper to protect your surfaces, 150ml bottled water, 150ml oil and a few drops of food colouring.

The crystal tree starts to grow within hours and is lovely and colourful- but be warned, the crystals will fall off if knocked especially as it starts to dry out. The bubbling swamp and volcano were fun, but short lived. They do spit - so get the children to wear the protective goggles. The desert rose opened quickly but wasn't very exciting. The highlight was the swamp monsters. After 24 hours you could see lots of tiny dots swimming around (despite some of the experiments spilling over into the water). It was fun watching and feeding them. Unfortunately ours only lived for a week before the crystal tree was knocked and the water thoroughly polluted. I suggest building your swamp elsewhere if you want to keep the creatures growing.

All in all - it looks plasticky but is really good fun.

i brought this for my granddaughter for Xmas she has done the crystal tree, they sent me a photo of it brilliant so colorful it started working after couple of hours, considering the reviews on the tree were not great, i think others must have done it wrong as this one was great, well worth the money, an excellent gift for any child.

This item was fantastic, my son loved it and learned a lot from doing it. He has since become very interested, doing a lot of research on the sea monsters, plants and chemical reactions
