This kit came with the pint-sized aquarium*, the 3 necessary packets (water purifier, sea monkey instant life, growth food), and the measuring/feeding spoon. These are all the things necessary for the "beginnings-of" your friendship with sea monkeys.

The one-and-only extra I believe to be necessary but could be considered a maintenance item is the "aqua-leash."

The extras (not necessary for the care of a beautiful sea monkey friendship, but very nice to have): a magnifying "portal" for viewing friends grow (¡as well as an excellent tool for the over 40 crowd/grannies/gampies grab-it-to-go in order to read the parts and supplies order form!); 3.5" x 4.5" pamphlet, "My First Pet Book" geared for the younger set--("8 pages of puzzles and activities with 11 pages to color," 10 pages of general pet ownership care, and 5.5 pages about sea monkeys); 2.5" x 2.5" plastic container in which to store the opened (and hopefully folded-inorder-to-enclose-the-opened-packets-of-valuable-food) pouches and spoon/s; and finally, a cute, orange, plastic sea monkey figurine for the youth to play with outside the aquarium and/or sea monkey collection collector (soon-to-be-ebay auctioneer).

* I guess this item is debatable since one could use a glass jar or vase in which to birth one's sea monkey critters.

Nota bene: this kit does NOT come with the "Sea Medic" sea monkey medicine which is necessary for maintaining a beautiful friendship. Without the "Sea Medic" you will have a, "We'll-always-have-Paris" kind of relationship with your sea monkeys. As a sea monkey convert, I would urge you to purchase the medicine and if your budget allows, the "Million-Bubble" air pump might save you an accidental spillage of tsunami proportions on your kitchen floor. These can be ordered from the tried-and-true however mysterious Transcience Corporation in Maryland, USA. (Written July 21, 2013)

Also, my measurements are approximate.

Nothing grew and directions were followed to the letter. VERY disappointed as was my big sister and my nieces. They just don't make things like they use to, I suppose.

I've had sea monkeys every few years since I was a kid. I bought this set for my daughter who'd never heard of them... and they never hatched. Having lots of experience I know we did everything right. Some articles say they won't hatch if it's too cold, but really, I had sea monkeys in my first apartment which was an ice bucket all year round! I've ordered replacement eggs, and will wait until summer. Little Divas!

I was very disappointed. Followed instructions but they never hatched. I would not recommend buying this unless you like looking at water.

The sea monkeys did not meet my expectation. Directions were hard to understand and follow. The sea monkeys never hatched. Very disappointed with the product. Will never order again.
