Six geodes to break open. It's a thrill every time you open one, the geodes gathered by Dr. Cool are something to see!
These are not some lame rocks with teensy-weensy crystals that you'll need a microscope to see. The crystals within these real geodes gleam up at you as soon as you crack them open. They're real crystal treasures.
Mined from areas where prehistoric volcanoes erupted, Geodes are not something you'll find everyday or everywhere. They are especially remarkable wonders of our planet. Following prehistoric volcano eruptions- the lava cooled, air bubble pockets remained in the lava, and over time these pockets filled with crystals.
Geology shines and interest in science grows as kids put on the included safety goggles, break open their spectacular geodes and pore over the full color Adventure Guide included. No need to be a rockhound - you'll become one when you experience the fun in this geode kit!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
My rating of Break Open Geode Kit

I bought this for my 6 year old daughter because she loves rocks and minerals. However, it's a little harder to break open the geodes than I had anticipated. The rating is for 6 and up but she definitely can't do it without my help.
Review for Break Open Geode Kit
Posted 12/29/2012 by Grandma Linda
It's so interesting to handle something over a million years old. We learned a lot about the formation of geodes and crystals from the materials included. Some of the geodes were more difficult to open than others. You want to be careful not to shatter them, and adult supervison helps. The insides of this batch of geodes varied significantly, which only provoked more curiousity. My ten year old granddaughter picked this out herself, and she was very happy with it so I bought another set for another family, and they too are happy to have it.
