As regards not being to get the Sodium Hydroxide, you can get it from Unitednuclear.com, and Homesciencetools.com sells both Hydrochloric acid and Sodium hydroxide. Both sites sell other chemicals too, so you won't have a problem getting the necessary chemicals. Also, many hardware stores sell Hydrochloric acid (they call it Muriatic acid), as well as Sulfuric acid (battery acid). So, getting the necessary chemicals is not as hard as it may seem.
Like the guy before me, I have a nostalgia bug too, and the Chem3000 fills that niche very nicely. I consider this chemistry set to be the finest ever made. The only way I think it could be improved (for the price) would be to add more chemical reaction information in their already really good manual.
If you want to learn chemistry but never got around to it, this is the set to buy.
I guess I come from the side of life where I've been there and done all that, and simply want to re-live those days when I was as the intended audience is, having the subject opening before them for the first time. Before I'd lay out this kind of money on a set, I'd make sure the student was up for it.
I'm impressed that such kits are marketed with the young student in mind, and since I'm just a big kid, well, you can count me in as entertained at the same time.
The experiments need close adult supervision and involve open flames, boiling solutions, hydrochloric acid, etc. and are not for younger children or the fainthearted parent. There is limited explanation in the manual about chemistry, so a supplemental text or course would be best to get an understanding of why the reactions happen.
That said, our daughter loves the kit and it is complete, well organized and of excellent quality.
