'I bought this as a gift for my little one who absolutely loves it..' Dottie65

'Brought as a gift. Looked great and the kids enjoyed it.' Cfree253

'My daughter loved the chad valley crystal growing kit got it for her birthday' Emo

'A really good kit which my children, aged 7 and 8 are enjoying very much. Good experiential learning for both of them and with a reward after each experiment, a crystal!' Stitch

'The utensils perhaps could be of higher quality but it's good for the price. It would definitely be much more educational if there was some sort of a fact book included as the information in the instruction booklet is not very generous. Instructions are easy to follow with the help of an adult. We only grew one so far and have to say it did not come out great, but it was growing in the tiny mould so i guess we should not have expected much.' MumOfa6yearold

'Great set, my daughter had this on the top of her wish list. It does require adult assistance as it is a bit tricky to use but overall a fab buy for a creative kid.' Dancerx

'Great gift and really kept my nephew entertain, educational and fun. Needs supervision for younger age groups' Kate

'My daughter was very excited about getting the set but wasn't as fun as we thought. Definitely need an adult to help and results take longer than expected' Alii

'Would recommend to all young children' Mj85

'My daughter got the chad valley crystal growing kit as a present and the set looked amazing in the box. Lots of tubs of chemicals, goggles, Petri dish. Could have done with more sealable tubes. The crystals are quite small that we have made so far - it's a long-term kind of toy so be aware you may need to create some space somewhere in the house.' Gill77

'Bought as a present for a 9 year old , i was very happy with the size and contents of this kit, much bigger than i thought, great value for money and she loves it' Steve

'A tip may be to buy extra stuff like salt and utilise empty jam jars to add to the fun. We needed it for a school project and only had a weekend to do it, so our crystals were only small. You need a few days to keep growing them.' Hayley

'A bought this for my 9 year old. Very confusing instructions and difficult to understand how to grow the crystals as not explained well. Very hard for a 9/10 year old.' Jo

'My grandson was delighted with this. Instructions are easy to follow and produced quick results.' SA

'Good , creative, interesting.' Smurf

'Theres alot more to it than you think so follow steps carefully - got for my 6year old as she loves science things, we've only done one lot and she loved it there's alot more to do as well value for money would defo recommend' S2243

'Lots of fun , very in enjoyable' T2005

'Good quality and value for money. Plenty inside the kit for kids try.' Gudge

'Bought this for my 9yr old daughter. Better value than other sets on the market and good selection of activities. Remember that you will have to find or buy a few other bits and pieces for some of the experiments to get them going but these are not hard to find in the shops.' Phil

'My son was given this for his 9th birthday. Great instructions, easy to follow and lots of different experiments to do.' Amc3996

'Bought as a present for a 5 yr old who loves making potions. A larger kit than I expected, with everything included. (Some of the science kits need lots of extra ingredients and equipment). The recipient has thus far really enjoyed the mixing and making, but has slightly less patience for the growing!!' AAhej

'Bought for Granddaughter. She likes making things and she is really enjoying this .' Andrew G

'My 8 yr old is a budding little scientist and she already has 3 crystals on the go. Easy for kids (and adults) to understand and something to keep as an end result. Some adult supervision is advised for younger children.' Alan TLJ

'I bought this for a gift and upon returning home discovered not everything you need is in the box and you had to buy plaster of Paris separately. Disappointing and I ended up buying another gift as I couldn't find plaster of Paris easily.' Jo
