4.0 out of 5 stars Starting scientific conversations, January 12, 2007
This review is from: Scientific Explorer My First Mind Blowing Science Kit (Toy)
While I am not a chemist nor a volcano expert, I am a certified teacher. This kit provided hours and hours of quality time for my 4 year old, my six year old and myself. We measured ingredients, mixed solutions, made predictions, learned vocabulary, and discussed results. Can you think of many toys that can offer all of that? I thought the booklet that contained instructions was well-sequenced, with simple experiments followed by complex ones and with a helpful parent script. There were two drawbacks: the activities required direct parent involvement and sometimes a 2 hour wait time was required for "reactions" to happen

Thanks for the insight. Instead of buying this for Christmas I'm going to ordr it for my house! When the Grandkids come to visit, I'll have a great activity for us to share - and Mom and Dad won't have to create a volcano under the tree!

Great idea!! If I can find an alternative gift for my grandson, maybe I'll do just that!
