By Ryan Heywood on November 14, 2009
Most of what our family experienced was as listed in the more favorible reviews. A bit messy, but easy to prepare for that and a great time was had by all. Most of the objects included are common household products, but this simply makes them conveniently at hand and easy to refill by not hiding the ingredients as generic magic powders.
A down side is the experiments seemed to be a bit repetitive, but the kids didn't mind as it was all so facinating to them.

The real downside? The smoking fingers trick was missing. Our first thought was a mischevious child made the card vanish using newfound magical abilities, but after searching online this seems to be a problem others have been having recently as well (ref: review at Barnes and Nobles web site) we're pretty certain that parts are being left out. While we find it incredible that this educational toy was able to make learning fun, it would be nice if we could perform ten magical activities as advertised instead of the nine actually available. I have to question the true value of any object's educational value when the company sending said product cannot count to ten.

A side note, the caps were not all that difficult to get on the ends of the wand. It just takes a little twisting and shifting, finesse rather than force.

My 7 year old received this as a Christmas gift, and it has been his favorite toy. The whole family gets involved with the magic experiments. The wand is difficult to make, but not impossible. The little black stoppers for the tube are ridiculously tight, and require an adult with upper body strength and/or patience, but it's worth it when blue slime doesn't leak out and spill on your carpet. Once it's done, you don't have to take them off again unless you want to, so it's one annoyance with a good result.
Once the wand is made, the little wizard can perform the other experiments that are incredibly cool to the 7-12 year old set, particularly the magic smoking fingers trick.

My daughter and I are writing this together - she insisted on rating this 5 stars because "it is awesome!" After doing the experiments in this box, she wants to turn her whole playroom into a science lab - actually that is why we're online right now, to get more science gear since she enjoyed this so very much. Anything that gets a 7 year old kid this excited about chemistry is - in her words - "awesome." She wants everyone reading this to know she just did a really cool experiment.

This is one of the best of the "Scientific Explorer's" kits. It's good for ages 5 to 12- I'm a nanny and used it with ages in that range and it always seems to be a hit no matter what. Some of the other kits don't come with enough supplies so you have to buy them, or the experiements takes a day or two to see the results (bad since kids need instant gratification) or omit those experiments all together. The candy kit makes you wait for several days till the rock candy forms, the yucky kit requires some additional materials you may or may not have lying around, etc. This kit is a good one to start with cause you can do all of the experiments and the use of citric acid and baking soda makes a lot of exciting instant bubbling which kids love. The wand kind of sucks but if you don't intend to keep it around for long it's kind of a cool activity to make it.
The colors kit is cool too. They are all neat in different ways it just depends on how much supervision you can provide and how many of the necessary supplies you want to buy or hunt down. This one is the best for convenience and fulfillment I think.

My son enjoyed this science kit. I think it is a little over-priced since there are only a few tricks and the picture is outdated. The new box says "Magic at your fingertips" NOT "Make your fingers smoke". I wanted to see that trick. It's a so-so kit. He liked it, though. I'm glad it was under $15 when I bought it.

My 11 year old has absolutely enjoyed this kit. The wand fit together fine...it's snug, but you don't want the liquid to leak do you? My daughter liked the jiggly jewels that formed in the wand as well, so it has been opened and closed many times...still no complaints. The instructions were simple and my daughter could do most of this without help. The experiments work well when done properly. My daughter especially enjoyed the magic concept as she is a Harry Potter fan; so it would likely make a nice gift for such a fan as well.

My 7 year old daughter got this for Christmas last year. We ended up playing with it all year. I guess I was lucky with the magic wand. She loved the test tubes and after a while she was able to follow the directions and do the experiments herself. I would highly recommend this as well as other products from this company.

This Magic Science Kit is FABULOUS!! My daughter just received this for her 5th birthday and truly feels like a Wizard!! She had help with Daddy (certainly needed at this age and way more fun!!) and LOVED every spell, potion, etc.! The test tubes are super and very sturdy...the holder is perfect as well. This kit can be used again and again (even with other ingredients if need be)...highly recommend, the pictures and moments are truly priceless. Love seeing my daughters face light up with "absolute belief" she made everything happen with her magic hat and very cool magic wand and a few magic words!!
