I just gave this to my 6 year old daughter for her birthday yesterday. It was the first gift she wanted to "play" with. She chose to start in the center and chipped away at the volcano. She worked diligently and excavated 3 rocks in about 1 and 1/2 hours. At bedtime she protested stopping to go to sleep. First thing in the AM she was back digging and found 2 more rocks. To say she loves it is an understatement. She's always loved collecting rocks she finds laying about, but this has an added excitement of digging and searching for the reward. She's very proud of herself after her hard work produces the stone. Also, she's enjoying learning about the layers of the earth and the different types of rocks of how they form. It definitely requires adult help for her age. It was hard for her to use the included wood stick to break apart the chalk like plaster. We ended up giving her a small flat head screw driver to use and it worked much better. However, when she was close to a stone we went back to the stick because we didn't want to chance damaging the stone. She tired kind of quick, so we stepped in to dig and quickly found out ourselves how tiring it is on the hand/wrist. After a few breaks she wanted to dig again. This is a great idea!

I got this for Christmas and I did it today on the 26th. When I found the first stone I knew what it was, Obsidian, but it took me 20 minutes to get to the Obsidian. My best stone is Marble. I recommend this item.

I got this for my almost-5-yr-old son for Christmas, and he LOOOOVED it! It took him quite awhile to excavate all 12 of the rocks, so it was great for me to have something for him to focus so much time on, and he absolutely had a blast doing so. Each rock he uncovered was a new burst of excitement. Pretty messy, of course, so I would recommend it for outside, or if inside, put a sheet of newspaper down under your kiddo's work area, and you're good to go!

I ordered this as a gift when my daughter was doing geology in her science class. Unfortunately, I neglected to check the box to see if everything that's supposed to be included was actually present before handing it to her. We received just the rock mass, nothing else. No stickers, no display tray, no tools, nada. Thankfully, I was able to find a small screwdriver to use as the digging tool and we confiscated a paintbrush from another craft and she was off. I figured it was a good lesson in how to make do when something goes unexpectedly awry. This is a very, very dusty project and messy and I agree with everyone who says that it's best to use this outside. I like the idea of the project, she's been chipping away at the thing for hours and is quite excited with every discovery. Unfortunately, their product control leaves something to be desired. I'd recommend it but make sure you double check that everything's there before handing it to child.

Edit: After completely destroying the mass, we ended up being 1 rock short. My daughter had a great time with this project, but I do wish quality control was a bit better.

I ordered this item for my 5 year old nephew. He LOVED it!!! He and his dad quickly went out and set about 'excavating'! The gems inside were fairly large (much larger than other kits his friends have had). A great kit to do with your dad! Arrived in very timely manner and in great condition! Thanks!

My son got this for Christmas. He loves rocks, and digging for them was great fun. The only BIG problem was that is was horribly DUSTY. My son had to wear sunglasses and a mask. He was covered in dust and it was EVERYWHERE. If this was done outside it would be perfect!!

I bought this for my daughter's 9th birthday. She loved it! It kept her busy for several hours for a few days. She finally busted through it all and got all the stones. The box however is junky! I threw it out. The stones were nice and this is something I'd recommend to a child who has interest in science kits, rocks, gems, and similar.

My son enjoys collecting rocks. I got him this so he could collect rocks, but also intrigue him with where they come from. He enjoys digging them out with his older brother. What I like is it keeps him occupied for hours and he is only a third of the way through.
