In short - cute little toy, but massively overpriced and packaged to make you think you are getting a lot more. Also, the recommended ages are four and up. This really seems geared toward the bottom of that age range. Finally, it is packaged as a "science kit" - but that's defining things rather loosely.
Here's a list of the labs included in the kit:
* Light Refraction
* Half a Scientist - how much is half & half?
* Illusion Top Spinners
* The Jumping Ball
* 3 Dimensional Drawings
* Magical Piggy Bank
* Double Meaning Illusions
* Color Illusions
* Relative Size Optical Illusions
* Retina Embedment Illusions
* Distorting Illusions
* Movement Illusions
* The Blind Spot
* A detailed instruction notebook is included inside the tin box
* Most of the projects are easy enough for some kindergartners and many first graders to complete on their own.
* The bouncing balls project did not work even when the directions were followed explicitly by my 15 year old.
* Many of the projects can only be done once because they require coloring on one of the included supplies and once it is colored, it cannot be undone. That makes the $20 price seem a bit high for our family's budget.
Overall, I give this product four "I like it" Amazon stars and believe this kit would be fun for use as a group in a home school or classroom setting. It contains a nice variety of labs to introduce the optical illusion concept.
