As a former educator I LOVE this product. I having been using this product with my two girls and they are so excited about science! The science tools are durable, kid friendly, bright and fun. The science experiments provided in the set are super easy and simple. In the past I have scrounged around for things I could use for all of our science experiments, but this set provide the best of the basics. I am so happy with this product and would highly recommend it anyone who is interested in getting kids excited about learning!

We tried the mini volcano and the measurements were so vague that it did not work. A "spoonful" of baking soda- teaspoon? Tablespoon? And how much is "some" vinegar? My son was really disappointed and so was I!The set looks great and sturdy and is good for little hands, I also like the large size of the instruction cards and that they can easily be wiped. I hope other experiments work better.

Comments about Primary Science Lab Set:
I gave this to my 5 year old nephew who has never been to preschool so this was his first 'formal' science lesson. I had done most of these experiments as I am a preschool teacher, but I always had to run around to find the supplies needed. This made it so EASY!I set this up on a picnic table outside to do with my nephew on his birthday, but we were soon joined by his sisters, 2nd and 4th grade. We did the volcano and some color mixing. I taught them the correct names for the pieces and they couldn't get enough. I wish I had more time to do more with them. They were so excited and so was I.Unfortunately I live 2 hours away so I have to hope their mother will do these experiments with them. It is such an awesome set and I don't think anyone will be disappointed with it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter and we love it! I love that it includes experiment cards. We've done just about all of them and love each one.All the materials in this kit are easy for kids to handle which weeds out frustration. I can't say enough about this kit! We have other LR products and they are all great!

My 4.5 year old loves this set! We just downloaded the extra 10 experiments! I appreciate having those so we get extra mileage out of the kit.

I bought this set last week for our four year old son. It's exactly what we were looking for. He loves everything science and art, especially bugs and mixing colors. We have had so much fun with this already. It's very sturdy, high quality. The goggles are really nice and comfy as well..not cheap at all.

This was the perfect gift from Santa for my 7 yr old future scientist. She loves doing the experiments and I love the durability of the product. I'm very happy with this kit and so is she. It's the perfect starter kit to begin to learn about tools necessary to become a scientist.

Great set for 3 - 5 yr olds!
from Seattle, WA
This is a very sturdy, and easy to use set. Great for 3 - 5 year olds. My daughter loves it! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that are a few flaws.1) The test tube lid is not leak proof. Which is usually not a problem but can be with vigorous shaking.2) None of the 10 projects use the flask.3) Some of the projects include steps that are impossible. For example, it will tell you to use the tweezers to remove something from the test tube, but the tweezers do not fit in the test tube. These flaws, notwithstanding, I do love the set.

What age group?
Help. I just bought this for my 7 year old nephew and I think that it may be too young. Would this be useful for a 7 year old?
