Product Description

The POOF-Slinky 0SA509 Scientific Explorer My First Fizzy Foamy Science Kit will have children young and old mixing safe powders to create solutions that foam and fizz. In this educational, make-it-yourself kit you’ll make bubbles and even make a volcano erupt! Along the way, you’ll learn some cool science about fizz and foam and how to make it bigger and better. Questions like “What happens when acids and bases clash?” will be answered, while these experiments will encourage the development of science and math skills. In each of the (7) activities, your child will get to act and think like a real scientist. They’ll ask questions and make observations using four of their five senses. They won’t taste anything, but they’ll use their eyes to see, nose to smell, ears to hear and hands and fingers to feel. Questions asked in this kit will be answered as your young scientist measures, predicts and investigates using safe chemicals and common household materials. Time to get fizzy and foamy! Scientific Explorer’s My First Fizzy Foamy Science includes vegetable oil, citric acid, baking soda, baking yeast, (3) color tablets, (3) plastic bags, (2) plastic cups, (2) sticks, a magnifier, measuring spoon, straw and 11-page activity guide.

Even I learned a few things while making science fun!

I found it was better to look for experiments online and buy the ingredients from the grocery store to work better.

I am now looking for another kit from the same company!

As a scientist mom you'd think I could easily get baking soda and vinegar from the kitchen and do these experiments without a stupid kit.

However I found that having specific "equipment" (test tubes) and "materials" engaged the interest of my kids. And most importantly, step by step suggestions for what experiments to do and what to say about them, helped me make this both interesting and educational for my kids.

My kids (3 and 4) went wild testing everything in the fridge to see if it contains acid (and thus if it would make baking soda fizz); they liked that they could guess from sourness and then test their predictions.

Ever since then my kids keep pestering me to do more chemistry. That's pretty significant. They make up (often quite wrong) theories about why different liquids fizz or mix the way they do. They got thinking about the fact that this is a question that can be asked, or that demands an explanation. To me that is a huge educational value.

Overall you could easily do the same things with kitchen materials and a well designed plan, but the kit makes it easy.

45 of 47 people found the following review helpful By law mom on January 14, 2008
I was a little disapointed with this kit. We have seen better. I have to say that it does have educational notes in with each experiment to help teach what is going on. I was expecting a wider variety of experiments and more props. Kids love most of all to mix things and there were no droppers or little scoops to allow them to do that. The "chemicals" were all in opaque silver lined bags so they were hard to pour and impossible to get a hand in to dig contents out meaning that mom had to pour it all into the one measuring spoon taking some of the fun out of it all. A different kit we had purchased came with test tubes, droppers, measuring cups, little scoops etc. and they had more fun when they were able to do more things themselves! It's not a bad product just looks more involved from the box than it really is.

34 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Blessed Mama on February 5, 2010
After attempting hands-on science by using a curriculum manual with my homeschooled children, I finally realized that I needed a "kit" that was open-and-go. And this kit was my answer!

Yes, there are items in the box that one would find in one's own pantry or cupboard, but I appreciate that everything is already there.

I used to use a curriculum, which claimed that all hands-on science experiments would require things found around the house. For some reason, however, those items were rarely in my home.

We have a large family, a child with special needs, are frequently running around taking a child to therapy, helping with our family's new business, etc. and I felt I was letting my children down by not following through with the experiments they so wanted to do.

I bought a few more "easy" science books and tried to implement those, but for one reason or another, things didn't work out.

A friend of mine suggested I look for some "science in a box" kits and I was nervous about what I would find. She recommended this company and I selected a couple of items, hoping it would work.

I was ecstatic when I opened the instructions to the first experiment to discover that the only items I had to fetch from my kitchen were a dish and a cup of water!

And as for future experiments, I have a very short list right up front of things I will plan to have on hand for when the time comes.

Clearly this kit is not for everyone, but for someone who is short on time and needs the simplicty of open-and-go, I recommend it.

I bought this with the Mind Blowing Science Kit. Skip the fizzy foamy stuff and just go straight to the mind blowing stuff! It'll save you $20.

This kit was purchased as a gift for our 6 year old son. It has been a way for two (our son and one of us) to get together for some wholesome, educational, and quality fun time. We would highly recommend this kit. It is great to have everything you need for some basic experiments in one box.

This kit is easy to use and contains basically everything you need for some simple chemical reactions. I don't know why I was expecting something more though - it didn't hold the interest of my 4 year old... and I'm sure it's due to the fact that a big part of the kit is the colored tablets to tint the reactions. We already use color tablets in his bathtub so that didn't seem cool to him. If you don't already use those tablets in the bathtub - your child will probably think this is a little more magical.

All of the chemicals are in pouches and not easy for the experimenter (i.e., the child) to work with. After cutting open the packages, I would need to provide my own containers and if she wanted to be more involved in it, which I do want. Instead, it was mostly me reading the instructions and mixing the stuff with her occasionally pouring in the liquid portion.

My daughter (6) has been having fun with this first science kit. It is good for her age, but she does need adult help with it.
