And, I can think of other good experiments that could be included with this sset but are not.
However, the experiments that are in it are pretty good.
The broomstick that spins itself anti-clockwise which ever way you spin it is quite good. As is the balancing phoenix, and the various illusions with mirrors, pictures, 3D pictures etc.
I like the spinning circles where the colours change as you spin, but the spinner itself is hard to use- I recommend sticking a toothpick, pencil etc through the middle too.
The kalideoscope is ok i gues, but seen better kits.
I really think this kit should be cheaper but I think most science kits on the market have this in common.
Inside the box there are some cardboard shapes which can be moved around to produce optical illusions and a handful of playing cards with pretty poor and well-known optical illusions printed on them.
The 3D warthog you are invited to make needs VERY strong glue (not included) to hold it in shape, and when you've made it, there's nothing 3D about it whatsoever, and we eventually gave up wondering how it was meant to work.
One of the 'tricks' consists of old-fashioned cardboard 3D glasses and two very small and unimpressive 3D scenes on playing cards to look at. In an age where you can watch an entire movie in astonishing 3D even on a TV, this is ridiculous. Another 'trick' instructs you to get a pen with no ink in it, fill it with lemon juice, write on some paper and then heat the paper with a candle. None of these things are included.
There are two optical illusion 'posters' (A3 size I think) which you'll have seen before and aren't well executed anyway.
Luckily my son also received a different, brilliant box of science magic tricks which are seriously good, easy and no-one's seen them before - and it's ALSO by John Adams, called Science FX. Buy that one, not this.
