Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari® Jr. Jungle Crew Lab Set™:

I have three kids aged 7, 6 and 1 and this GeoSafari Jungle Crew Lab set is recommended for ages 3+. None of my kids are at that ideal age for this but we tried another lab set that they loved so I figured I'd give it a shot. As expected, my 6 year old took one look at it and said it was for babies. I just asked her to try it once and if she didn't like it she never had to do it again.

Well her excitement started to mount as soon as I started having her gather materials for the first experiment. She kept asking questions about what we were going to do with it. I knew she'd love it!

There is card that explains what materials are needed in addition to the included supplies and then another card that explains what you are to do.

I read it out loud to my daughter and had her perform the experiment. She was instantly hooked.

We were able to complete one entire experiment with things that we had on hand so we moved on to the next. We found a second experiment that used a lot of the same things as the first including just water and food coloring.

My 7 year old wandered over about this point and asked if he could do the same thing. Paige was excited to show him what she had done and they sat and repeated the same things over and over again!

The GeoSafari set that looked like it was for babies bought me almost two hours of them being purely entertained AND learning!

The set itself comes with vials and tubes that have cute animal shapes sure to attract the little ones.

For the most part people will probably have the items on hand but some of them I didn't have and others were too much work to gather. Next time I'll plan ahead and have everything ready to go so it isn't a lot of work.

I found that the animal tubes were a little bit wobbly and the tubes didn't stick securely in the bottom. We didn't have any accidents this time but I would suggest doing these on a tile floor or outside where it can be easily cleaned, especially when dealing with food coloring.

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari® Jr. Jungle Crew Lab Set™:

    Calling all budding scientists! This is a super cool science set that allows children (with parental assistance) to make their own slime, use food coloring and document your observations depending on how much water you use and much, much more. Kids can have fun creating and experimenting with items in their kitchen, bathroom and backyard! The jungle themed test tubes, beaker, tongs and funnel (large lion and small cub test tubes; rhino flask; elephant funnel; hippo tongs and monkey dropper) and super adorable and the perfect size for the littlest of hands.

    It totally makes learning fun and kids don't even realize that they are learning in the process. The kit even has a cool little book that guides children through various experiments. Everything is made from a hard plastic, so you don't need to worry about them breaking if little hands drop them!

    I received this product for free to review and share my honest opinion of it.

      I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.

      I LOVED the experiments in this set! We have done many of them so far and the kids have had a lot of fun. My 3 and 5 year old both enjoy the parts to this kit.

      I for one, do not understand though, how to use the tweezer effectively, and feel like it could be designed a little better, as it's a bit clunky and hard to "grab" things with it bc of the narrow opening. But as it doesn't really affect the experiments in the book, I am not reducing my rating. ALL the pieces are super sturdy and durable and I especially appreciated the "caps" on the test tubes that allow children to pour without a big splashy mess!

      An all around great start for science for the kids. My boys ARE used to science kits geared for older kids but they still loved this one despite being used to the smaller, more realistic pieces of other science kits! :)

        My 3 kids were so excited when this science kit came to the house. They could not wait to open it! Once we opened it they had a ton of fun making "slime." They love the colorful animal tops on the beakers and tubes! All the equipement seems sturdy and seems it will last the rest of time. My 3 year old loved pouring water from one tube to the other. I loved this toy because it promotes science and having fun with it. The experiments listed on flip cards were easy to follow and had fun results. This toy is great for budding scientists but also for imagination play.

          Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari® Jr. Jungle Crew Lab Set™:

          In full disclosure, I was provided this set from Educational Insights, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. My boys LOVED playing with this science set. The colorful animals made it engaging and more at their level. It is a wonderful first science set as it offers many of the things you need to complete basic science experiments. The large size of the items also make them easier to manipulate for young children. The set comes with a book of 10 experiments which I found very helpful, and most of the items required can already be found in your house. What I LOVED is that the experiments helped combine art and science. We had so much fun making different colors in the test tubes and then using the dropper to make art projects. Again, due to the size, my 3-year old had no trouble manipulating the dropper which has been a problem with droppers in the past. This set can be used over and over again making for hours of learning and playing. My kids are excited to complete more experiments. This set is great for at-home play but also for science centers in a daycare of preschool.

            This is a cute science set made just for kids. It includes 10 activity cards that give simple and clear directions for kids to complete experiments. Also included are 6 animal themed items to help your kids complete their experiments. Our kids loved this and we loved that it was sized just right for their little hands! The only down side, was that there were only 10 cards. It would be awesome if it came with more or if you could buy more. But either way, you can use this set over and over!

              This one he was begging to play from the time it showed up. He loved to make potions and this was right up his alley. It had different size test tubes in the shape of animals and other tools for him to use. It also came with a card to give you some great chemistry ideas for your little one that are safe and fun.

                My daughter loves this "experiment kit" she's always asking to do different projects and see what she can do. We love the bubble project and that the book included gives easy step by step directions. It's a great set that helps to promote science and learning in a fun way.

                  This is a cute set for future scientists. It comes with a nice selection of beakers and test tubes. They are made from sturdy plastic and and have cute animals toppers. There is a also a dropper, tweezers, and a set of activity cards. Activities include fun experiments like filling a balloon with gas or making your own bubbles.

                  While I really like this set, I was a little disappointed that it didn't come with any of the ingredients needed to complete the experiments. I didn't have any on hand so I haven't been able to try them yet. However, my kids have fun playing with the pieces in the pool and the tub.

                    My kids always love splashing water, so this toy went over really well with them. They adore the animals. As a certified K-6 teacher, I've tried out several GeoSafari toys to fill our home with science manipulatives. I love that my girls can study science in a simple and fun way.

                    I received the item for free to help inform my writing, but this didn't influence my opinion.
