Bad product, yet turned out good... 9 Jan 2005
By Carolyn - Published on Amazon.com

I agree with all the reviews here - the good AND the bad. The set is cheap, chintzy, and NOT worth the money for the materials. The magnifying glass is...well, I wouldn't even call it cheap plastic. Just impossible to see anything through it. The droppers are cheap and I am sure will not hold up to repeated use. The plastic cups are the kind they use to give you 2 pills in the hospital - disposable plastic.

The entire kit is based solely on color mixing using Crayola tub tints! I almost had a fit - I have a jar of 50 of them in the bathroom! Color mixing is all you get here.

That being said - my 4 1/2 year old loved it. Felt like a real scientist with her dropper and what-not. So, was it worth the twenty dollars? Not from a materials stand point. But for watching my daughter learn and discover and become jazzed about experiments even more than she was (if that's possible), then yes, it was worth it.

It was definitely worth Mom learning a lesson on buying good quality materials and borrowing experiment idea books from the library!

Sooo hard to rate! 13 Sep 2005
By bubba - Published on Amazon.com

I am a microbiologist and worked years in a lab and know exactly how cheap these materials are, BUT the kids loved it! The bottom line is that if I had brought them the same materials and used food colouring in the pantry, they would have not have had half the interst. Is it the box, the wrapping? Who knows. My hope was to have some fun with science and to introduce the idea of scientific exploration as a joy and this silly kit works. The lesson ideas help you guide them in an age appropiate way and along with extra food colouring from my pantry (arguing over the yellow) we have been able to use this 3 time on rainy days with much enthusiasm. If you want to introduce science as something fun, these kits do the trick. I will certianly purchase more in the future.

You don't need this to do the science 30 Dec 2004
By D. Myers - Published on Amazon.com
I cannot believe that other reviewers gave this cheesy so-called science kit 5 stars. I gave it to my almost 5 yr. old grandson for Christmas. His mom & I decided that one does not need the junky things included in this set to do these experiments. For instance the little plastic food coloring bottles available at the grocery store are perfectly suited for mixing colors either on paper towels or in custurd cups. The chrystal making stuff is what is used in baby diapers and for $.26 (the cost of one diaper) you can make chrystals easily. The magnifying glass is so chintzy--very small and hard to see through the murky plastic.

Get your child an inexpensive real magnifying glass. No more packaged so-called science kits for us. Most kids really interested in science would find little inspiration in this kit.

Fantastic kit for little scientists 23 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I did this kit with my 4-year-old daughter and she loved it! There are various activities within the kit -- she expecially liked making the rainbow of crystals. She also enjoyed mixing the colors and even wanted to write down the results. She's now 5 and still remembers the experiment and thinks science is fun. Well worth it!

Son loved it - So did Mom and Dad 9 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I bought this for my son's 4th birthday and he loved it! My husband and I spent several evenings doing the various experiments with him and we had a great time too. My son really enjoyed learning about mixing colors and the whole "experiment" aspect of it. The materials, such as the droppers and test tubes, are reusable so you can make up your own experiments too.
