Bought my 11 year old this for Christmas. Had a quick look in the box when it turned up and was pretty surprised to see how few items were contained within the large box.
We had a go at some of the experiments on Boxing Day and were both pretty disappointed with what there was. A few fizzes, a few changes of colour, one interesting use of gas to put out a flame (for £25 couldn't a CANDLE have been included??!) and that was about it.
We picked it up again a few days later and just messed about really as my very curious minded boy needed a bit more to entertain/educate him.
Overall, too few chemicals, too basic experiments and a disappointment.
