The big draws for this kit were the worm motel, sundial and microscope. Turns out, if you look carefully at what is actually included in the box, you are only provided the instructions and some very minor equipment to make the worm motel and sundial. Everything else has to be provided by you. I felt sick when I realized this after my nephew opened this as his birthday present and there was hardly anything in the huge box.

The microscope was included, but wasn't as I expected. If you look carefully at the picture on the box, you will see that the microscope is actually more like a magnifying glass. Not only was this a disappointment, it was also very fragile. It comes in two parts which are not connected in any way. The first time my nephew used it, the top piece fell off and broke when it hit the floor. I wouldn't say it was sturdy enough for any child to keep it in good working order for long.

Save your money and buy the items you are interested in separately as this kit was not what it advertises.

You could probably just make some of the stuff in this kit out of empty plastic yogurt cups, popsicle sticks, strings, elastic bands etc. Doesn't seem all that special or worth spending your money on.

I bought this kit for my 5-year-old great nephew to play with at our family reunion. We had rented cabins in a beautiful wooded area outside of Asheville, NC. My great nephew played with it for a long time every day and had a wonderful time exploring the area with his grandfather, dad, mom-- anyone who would go outside with him! It really sparked his interest and curiosity in nature. He said he was looking forward to checking out what critters he could find in his own backyard.

My grand daughter wanted a bug kit, and this is the closest I can get her. She is 6 years old and she enjoys what she can do with it. This was her Christmas present.
