Great value extra gift with some educational value
on 15 January 2011
I bought a number of "Educational toys" this Christmas for my 8yr old and He loved them all, This is a very simple kit that allows Him to grow some Crystals on some card (in the shape of a tree). He did the experiment very quickly and was very pleased with the results, it started growing crystals quite quickly and over 3-4 days it grew thousands of tiny little crystals on it.
If you remember doing the proper crystal experiment at school then these crystals will seem a little weedy and I'm sure you could find a proper science kit that would allow you to do this but as a simple little extra present for an 8yr old this is great (for the price of [...] delivered) and it has the added bonus of showing the basics of the principal which may give a little extra interest and knowledge when He gets older and starts doing proper experiments at School.
