Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

This amazing book from the famous Naked Scientists offers a fun way to introduce science to kids, with 50 simple experiments that produce spectacular results.

Concise scientific explanations are included on how and why the experiments actually work. Each activity is straightforward and manageable, yet impressive enough to get anyone interested in science. So whether it's racing jelly jars, making a bowl invisible, or instantly freezing soda before your eyes—with the Naked Scientists' help, you'll never have a dull rainy day again!

Give your child the wonder of a toy gyroscope! Produced since 1917, the TEDCO gyroscope continues to fascinate young and old alike with its mysterious force that seems to defy gravity. Gyroscopic technology is used in numerous applications of everyday life such as in guidance and navigation systems for ships, airplanes and spacecrafts; for accurate mapping and surveying; in oil drilling and even motion picture making. Each gyroscope is packed in a clear styrene box with starting string, pedestal and instructions for performing several amazing tricks.

Busy hands build strong minds! And there is no toy better than the classic gyroscope to engage both the hands and the minds of youngsters. Children are curious by nature and one of the best ways for them to learn is by asking "how does it work?" The gyroscope sets out to help kids investigate the amazing scientific principle of gyroscopic force and to reinforce learning through hands-on exploration.

Made in the USA.

Winner of the Parents' Choice Gold Award by the Parents' Choice Foundation!

Includes gyroscope, clear box, starting string, pedestal and instructions.
