Product Review (submitted on February 13, 2009):
Advertised in catalog C091-UBBA page 29 as "perform over 1000 experiments... " (if you go collect 995 items to magnify-maybe) Complete 450 safe micro-chemistry experiments..." (450, 100, and 250 are the magnification powers of the lenses on the microscope). Earth/Moon, merely smooth, round plastic spheres- you have to refer to 2 dimensional picture of continents in book with kit and pencil draw them yourself onto sphere (requires more talent than I have as adult). T-Rex model is 8 pieces, very easy to assemble, but mine had 2 right rib/body sections. Crystal growing part worth $7, weather station like something from local hardware store. Also has volcano erupting chemical "kit". Packaged poorly in original box- Paper of cloud formations damaged, everything rattled, luckily nothing broken. Instruction book: interesting, tiny print, a bit too simple in sections. Well packaged into box shipped to me by UPS. Customer service outstanding: will send me replacement T-Rex & hopefully fix catalog listing.
