NICE GAME FOR FUTURE FORENSIC EXPERTS
on 17 December 2013
The box contains everything the child needs to collect and examine fingerprints, including an ink pad, dusting powder, fingerprint file cards, and detailed instructions. The idea is excellent, but I was somewhat disappointed with the quality and quantity; the ink is not excellent and the dusting powder is only sufficient for only a few attempts.
I bought this for my eleven year old nephew and it was a great success. When he unwrapped the gift, he was really excited and immediately wanted to play with it. Although we had great fun playing forensic experts (ok, my nephew was the expert and I the suspect), he was a little disappointed that the fingerprints were not very clear and it seemed that the contents would not last for very long.
This is a good gift for children that is fun and a great way to talk about science. Also as it is in a nice box, it is really easy to gift-wrap.
