A new shine on appreciation for rare rocks and minerals- and a thing called fluorescence. It's a Glow Rocks science kit! Six rare rocks within your kit transform like magic when you shine the portable UV lamp on them! Every rock included glows in a different color.
Once that discovery is made, kids are headed to their backyards and into the great outdoors with their portable UV lamp - on a mission to reveal more mysterious discoveries. Even rocks that seem ordinary in daylight often reveal secret hidden colors. (And Dad, - just shine the light on rotten branches that support glowing fungi, and YOU become the fun-guy!)
Additionally, the Glow Rocks kit includes an Adventure Guide with ten revealing experiments to try. - Want more fun? Shine your portable UV light on petroleum jelly, modern $20 bills, tonic water, Irish Spring, stamps, banana spots...
What reflects may surprise you. But, the best news about the Glow Rocks Science Kit is ordinary kids glow with appreciation for the remarkable world we live in -and the science in it, too!

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.
Interesting for budding scientists

My son enjoyed using the light to examine the rocks in this kit. We even bought some additional rocks at a local museum. We also used it to examine other objects in and around the house. It's not something he plays with everyday,though.
