Watch scented bio seeds grow in front of your eyes - with no soil or water! Using a nutritive and non-toxic gel created by Globus International in collaboration with NASA scientists (and tested on a space shuttle!), Plantariums are life-giving ecosystems in which seeds rapidly germinate. The colourful gel’s transparency makes the seedling and it’s roots visible throughout the entire germination and early plant-growth process! Simply press the seeds into the gel and close the tube. As germination starts, the Plantarium’s plastic vial works as a greenhouse and a miracle of nature unfolds! After the seedling reaches the top of the vial, it can be transferred to soil to fully mature.

These 200 planks will give you plenty of versatility in the amazing things you can build! Includes the booklet of building techniques with 40 illustrations and photographs. Kapla Construction Blocks are made for people all over the world, so there are no words. Pictures tell the whole story!

Kapla’s long and thin planks are based on the progressions of the uneven numbers 1:3:5. Three thicknesses for one width and five widths for one length. This ratio between bricks and stones and beams and planks now opens a whole new way of building. With these identical planks, the builder can construct with the precision of artwork, and the stability of stones. The use of identical unfixed pieces develops the child’s aptitude for organizing elements in a 3-dimensional space and allows them to discover and sharpen their manual ability in relation to objects. Kapla helps the child to understand the fundamental issues of geometry, physics and technology. It also introduces them to the world of art, and to the universe of shapes and volumes, while developing concentration and a feeling of balance.

It's like magic, but you don't need to be a magician to get it to work. The PlasmaCar is a mechanical marvel that makes use of that most inexhaustible of energy sources, kid-power, by harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. It's so easy to operate; all it needs is a driver and a smooth, flat surface.

The PlasmaCar is adult-friendly, too. For starters, it doesn't require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement. No batteries, no power-cells, no liquid fuel-just the occasional cookie or two. It's quiet too-the only sound you'll hear is the sound of its wheels. It provides kids with plenty of exercise, more so than most toys. And the PlasmaCar is engineered to be absolutely safe when used appropriately.

Not recommended for use on laminate and hardwood flooring, as the wheels may damage some surfaces. Some adult assembly required.

Maximum weight capacity 220 lbs.

Winner of numerous awards and accolades, including the National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval in 2009, Voted #1 Top Spring and Summer Kids Essentials in 2009 by DisneyFamily.com, iParenting Media's 2008 Toy Award, and Fat Brain Toy's 2008 Award in the Active Play Category.
