The experiments and recipes are on the fun side, but the "STEM" label seems somewhat like a marketing gimmick, because the chemistry/science content of the manuals is quite sparse (it does contain some interesting content that could probably be understood by most kids though).
Finally, some of the recipes involve making caramel, which can produce serious burns as sugar water will get very hot and sticky. Parents need to be aware of these recipes and supervise their children accordingly.
Several other negatives: The box is too big, making what is provided in the kit look sparse. The cookbook/experiment books have very busy pages, small print, and use white on orange background bubbles that are not easy to read for my senior eyes.
On the positive side, the teachable moments with this set are many and may cause the adult to stretch as well. For example, part of the explanation of states of matter included ionization, which I had to look up to remember just what an ion is.
Update 12/27/2018: if the USA branch of Playz would add a simple equivalents chart to the kit it would be much better. For example, recipes sometimes reference cups and sometimes teacups. Super Recipe #3 in Book 1 calls for 250 g (grams) of icing sugar. Best I can tell from the internet that is 2 cups, but is that American cups or UK teacups, and are teacups the same as metric cups.. I would love to help them know what might need to be on that sheet.
Also, it is unclear how the two books are supposed to be related. Book 1 refers to some things in Book 2 and viscera as if the material has already been covered.
update 07/10/18--so far the "candy" has not been good, the worms were a complete flop and took forever trying to get them to work.....never did---seriously thinking about sending these back
There are some frustrations like you keep making small batches of the gummy candy. Why? There's no reason given but it seems like it would be much easier to make enough to fill the mold completely. However, the candy tastes amazing and is in a really cute heart shape.
Instead of saying gather 2 bowls, they should say 2 small microwave safe bowls. Because I don't know if they mean a mixing bowl or a soup bowl. I should've used a small glass cup because we made very little batches. Maybe 5 tablespoons. Since I don't know metric I didn't really put it together how little it made.
We haven't tried anything else yet however, after we tried the gummies we are excited to do more because they're delicious!
