fun set Review by mom23boys

Really fun set of test tube experiments for kids. I liked that there is more than one of some of the tubes, but also felt that sone were added to fill space without extra cost (mentos & extra garden seeds). Overall though a good, fun purchase for my children (Posted on 12/30/13)

Stocking Stuffers for the Grandkids Review by Tatiana

My grandkids and adult kids love to get these test tube experiments in their stockings. I also gave them out to my co-workers one year and they loved them. My granddaughter was able to cook and eat one of the ears of corn from the grow a plant test tube. The deer got the rest :-) I have given the extra catalogs I receive in the packages to co-workers with children. Hopefully you are getting many more orders. (Posted on 12/21/13)

Great gift - great value, too! Review by Gayle B

We were fortunate to pick this up when it was on sale, and frankly it would still have been a bargain at regular price - the bucket is chock full of good stuff - we loved the instant snow, the polymer crystals, everythine. Had a great time with the "cola and mint" geyser. Would make a terrific birthday or holiday present. Highly recommended!!! (Posted on 1/18/13)
