Once it actually arrived, I was really happy to see the size of the geodes. The smallest one was about 2" in diameter and the largest was about 4-5" in diameter.
In the box is a nice pair of safety glasses which is a definite plus since the last time my nephew tried breaking one open, he ended up with shards of rock in his eyes.
I can't wait to see what the geodes look like inside once he breaks them open. I will be sure to post some pics and talk more about how long it took for him to break them open.

We give these as birthday presents and everyone loves them. We buy them for our kid's parties too, and every child gets one to open. It's awesome. It's also fun to buy a chisel (only like $3) and tap them open. I got a few to split in half nicely with a chisel.
The 8+ year olds can open their own by placing the geode in a sock (for safety, in case the rock splits) and breaking it with a hammer. Any younger, the parents will need to help.
The literature was brief but informative. The ten activities (maze, word puzzles, connect the dots, etc.) were best suited for younger children (my daughter is 13--recommended age goes up to 15).
The seven geodes are a generous amount, though one was quite small. It was too hard for us to open (along with one other geode).
Our kit included three types of geodes: calcite, "rock crystal" quartz and the drusy quartz. I appreciated the explanation of various methods to crack them open. My daughter managed to cleanly split two by using the back of our hammer.
For displaying the geodes, there's a thin paperboard background with a miner in a brown mineshaft (it's different than the bluish cave design on the product page). Hopefully, this can be updated.
There are also two black plastic stands for showcasing these stunning geodes (the Ultimate Kit contains three).
Note: Choose your working space wisely! I recommend cracking these outside in the grass, if possible. I had some thick cardboard that I merely placed over the wooden floor (we live in an apartment with no balcony). Our excitement was tempered by the dents we accidentally made to the wooden flooring from striking the rocks. We were initially unaware since the cardboard bottom was still intact--it happened without breaking through to the other side.
