Bouncing Planet Maker – $12.99
My son told me this is the best project he’s ever made! The kit includes ten packets of planet forming powder and two molds (small and large) and some cardboard pop-out rings and a rocket ship. This was very easy to make and we enjoyed doing it together. The powders are poured into the molds and then the molds sit in water for 3 minutes. After you take the molds out of the water you let them sit for 5 minutes to drain. Then you can open the mold and pop out your own homemade bouncing planet (bouncy ball). There was enough powder to make one large planet and five small ones.
Here is my son holding up his first finished planet.
Galaxy Ball – $5.26
This ball doesn’t bounce very high but my kids are both enjoying it nonetheless. It’s 4 inches in diameter and is light and air-filled.
This non-toxic polymer makes a snow-like material (but not cold) with the simple addition of water. My son wants to save this to do when his cousins come visit this summer so we haven’t opened it yet.
My son is in a dinosaur phase right now so this was exciting for him. The egg is made of plaster and hidden inside is a small plastic dinosaur. You use the provided wooden digging tool and brush to excavate and then clean off the dinosaur. It took a long time and some adult help, but eventually we hit pay dirt!
Verdict: I think this is a fun box for kids with a nice science twist. My son had a lot of fun with both the dinosaur and planet kits. The value of the toys was slightly under the box cost so I’d love to see the value go up for next month.
