I would have given this a solid "5 star" review EXCEPT for the fact that I feel the seller needs to clarify the number/type of pieces that you receive a little better. I was expecting 16 little baggies with something in each one, and I only got 11. However, there were 3 shark teeth in 1 bag, and more than 1 triceratops bone chips in another, and 3 Crinoid stems in another. So overall, I actually got more than 16 pieces, but I think it should be made a little clearer that you do not get 16 DIFFERENT specimens; some are multiples of one species.

Also, be aware that for the most part these are small specimens, which I kinda expected, but the photo makes them look a bit bigger than they are.

All of that having been said, I am still very happy with this set, it is a great beginner kit for my "dino-crazy daughter", and I intend to display it at her prehistoric-themed birthday party - along with some magnifying glasses for closer viewing. The Ammonite (halved & polished) is particularly beautiful. I think kids will be pretty thrilled to hold REAL dinosaur bones & fossils in their hands :)

One last note: I got this on sale for only $14.99, which is a GREAT deal for this product, IMO! In fact, I may go ahead & order another set for my daughter's science teacher. I would NOT, however, pay $40+ for this set, which was the original price. This review IS partially based on how much I paid for it.

I ordered this as a gift for my 12 year old who wants to be a palenintologist (I know I spelled that wrong.) It is a great sets, and very interesting, but VERY fragile. Two of the pieces were broken in shipping. He broke another just looking at it (not playing around, being careful.) Basically it will get the mind going and easily spark interest in anyone that has the slightest idea of what these artifacts are, but it is incredible fragile and should probably not be handled, just looked at.

The fossils were a hit for my twin six year old grandsons! They want to become paleontologists! How much will that cost Grandma and me???

Very small fossils, not organized or displayed effectively. They are fossils, but come with no description. I bought it for a gift, but would have been embarrassed to give it.

Lots of shark teeth, not very impressed. My niece still liked it because she thinks all that stuff is awesome but was expecting a little more out of this.

My girl loved the real fossils in this set. They came as described and were high quality items. She was very happy with them.

Bought this as a birthday gift for a 9-year old dinosaur enthusiast. The fossils are, as expected, pretty small, but well worth the $15 price. He loves it, by the way!

I was surprised when I received the shipment at how small the box was even though others had commented that it was small. Regardless, the fossils are authentic and really cool. I would recommend this.

Instant additions to the "collection" box! He has to show everyone his prehistoric realics that Santa brought him. I thought they were as I expected them to be...nothing crazy.

There's a goodly bit of uncertainty in exactly what fossils you'll have in the box (in the Gumpian "Life's a box of chocolates" sense), but what I received was a nice mixture of fossils from different eras, including some ancient shark's teeth, some trilobite-type fossils, and a couple of dinosaur bones. What I received exceeded my expectations. Recommended.
