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 Learning Resources Primary Science Lab Set:

    I agree with all the comments on how durable, great for little hands, educational, fun science toy, etc. I will add that I thought it was the best choice around for an age appropriate science kit for my 6 year old daughter. She loves all the components and doing her own experiments. In fact, be sure to catch that you can download 20 more pages for 10 more experiment cards if you go to the bonus content on this website. It may also help if you are unsure of making this purchase. You can see if those experiments look appropriate for your son or daughter. I also appreciate that the experiments use household items that most will already have in the home and if not they are easy and cheap to purchase. Great set!

            I was interested in buying this kit for my 18 month old because I realized that all of her role-playing toys were household/domestic. I am a scientist myself and want her to be exposed to other role-playing. I bought this kit for a friend's 18 month old as a gift first to see how it was, and we were both quite pleased. The toddlers enjoy putting the tubes in and out of the racks and screwing the tops on, but I think they will be interested to watch many of the experiments suggested on the cards, even if they are a bit too young to do some things on their own.

              I gave the experiment set and the microscope to my three year old grand daughter at the suggestion of my daughter. When I explained the experiments to my grand daughter, she became so excited about getting to try them once she got home. She asked questions and her eyes, which are large anyway, became very large with anticipation. She'll enjoy each one.

                Comments about Learning Resources 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!

                  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!
