National Bunsen Burner Day!

Megan PeronaComment

While we don’t sell Bunsen Burners, we do sell a lot of science kits.  Here’s a few of our favorites:

Moon in my Room, Ages 3+ $39.99

Watch the cycle of the moon – right inside your bedroom!  This realistic moon model hangs on your wall and lights up to show the different phases of the moon.  5 different phase settings let you match what the real moon looks like outside tonight.  Bonus – download the free moon audio tour from Uncle Milton.  Auto shut-off included.

Butterfly Garden, ages 4+ $22.99

They’re a little hard to see in the photo, but those are live butterflies flying inside that garden!  Live butterflies that those children, potentially you and your children, hatched from caterpillars!  Buy the garden, send in for the caterpillars (available any time of year), then follow the simple, enclosed instructions and watch a truly amazing transformation.  We’ve hatched several butterflies in the store, so if you have any questions or curiosities, feel free to ask!

C500 Chemistry Kit by Thames & Kosmos, Ages 10+ $34.99

And, here’s an oldie but a goodie:  a chemistry set.  Introduce your kids to chemistry through 28 classic experiments.  Test acids and bases, create fizzy reactions, write messages with invisible ink and more!  Everything you need is included and a 48-page color manual helps walk you through each step.

Have a day filled with curiosity and wonder!
