Lakeshore Learning set quite a set to my kids. I didn’t expect to see so many in the box. When my kids got home from preschool they had such a field day playing with Lakeshore Science Viewers: Complete Set & the My First Science Experiments. This whole package came to me super fast and full of fun in each box and lots of learning toy products for toddlers and up.
The Lakeshore Science Viewers: Complete Set which I never expected to get this many. I remember having a version like these in the 80/90’s when I was growing up and remembered how many hours I spent looking, changing, and pulling the lever down for a new picture. When my boys got this wonderful set from lakeshore learning we pulled all the round cards out, and started to stack them up. To look through the viewers. I gave 2 of them to a friend of mine who has a kiddo around the same age as W. The viewers are made of plastic, and they seem to handle much handling great. We dropped one on the hardwood and tile and it handled it very well, nothing broke or rattled so its safe to say toddlers won’t damage them. The cards are made of cardboard and some kind of film, which will bend with little effort, so with that in mind I suggest letting your kids play with a few at a time. Each box shows off something different. Flowers, animals, mammals, and so on, over 35 pictures per box that’s 5 discs per box. I like how they come with a viewer per box, just in case you lose one, or someone borrows it.
The My First Science Experiments was the very first toy we cracked open. Comes with salt, coloring tablets, tray, test tubes and so much more. You can do many experiments with just this box with just about 13 to be exact. My toddler had way more fun adding the colored tablets to the water more than anything, watching and listening to the water fizz as the colors dissolved. Once all the tablets, and salt is gone, your left with the tray and test tubes, which if you have items around the house you can keep playing with the science set. My kiddo’s had fun playing with this set and spent a few hours experimenting with the ingredients included. The quality of the whole set is great and sturdy and handle much water weight in the test tubes, and the tray can handle the colored tablets fine, and wont dye the tray for future uses.
