My First Mind Blowing Science Kit Review

Education

My First Mind Blowing Science Kit is a good science kit for teaching the basic chemistry concepts of acids and bases. Most of the experiments depend on this relationship and an indicator.

Though simple experiments, kids can learn from the reactions and from being asked to explain what is happening (with some guidance from an adult or older sibling/friend).

Entertainment

The entertainment value is entirely dependent on the child, but I would definitely not consider this science kit to be “mind-blowing”.

The experiments are fairly simple and largely not entertaining for parents/adults. For children, though, the experiments can definitely be amusing. However, some kids may find them too basic or have too much downtime waiting for reactions. Also, several of the experiments are repetitive and use similar processes.

Moreover, the lasting value of the kit is limited as each experiment consumes the limited supplies that come in the box. Parents can, of course, purchase more ingredients to continue the fun; they can be easily found in most towns or ordered online.

Parent Perspective

The kit is designed for children between 6-8 years old. Most children that age will probably need some assistance to complete the experiments. Particularly if you do not want a lot of post-playing cleanup.

For its price (generally between $12-$20), the kit does not provide that much value. Most pieces could easily be purchased separately. The experiments can generally be found on the Internet or in a book of science experiments for kids.

However, it is very convenient to have most of the needed items all in one box. It also makes a great gift where you would not want to put 20 or more individual items in a box.
