Play the role of archaeologist as you explore this pyramid model and the treasures buried within!
After using hieroglyphics to decipher the secret to unlocking the pyramid, use tools and techniques similar to those of a real archaeologist to carefully excavate a sarcophagus and four canopic urns from the hardened sandy catacomb inside. Practice the best techniques for excavating an archaeological site, such as digging, troweling, screening, brushing, and record keeping.
As you uncover the artifacts in the pyramid, you will learn about important aspects of archaeological science, including surveys, excavation, conservation, dating, and remote sensing.
Learn how to create a gridded excavation site and a diorama. Investigate the layout of the pyramid, its various chambers, hidden passageways, and security devices by constructing a three-dimensional cross section of the pyramid.

Step-by-step instructions for all activities and experiments
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 8 years of age.
Pretty good - fun is over quickly though...

I'll preface this by saying that the child I bought this for is a few years younger than the recommended age...
The best part of this product is, of course, digging in the pyramid. There is also a book of experiments and other things you can do, which we are and will likely do over time, but the biggest feature is the dig, and I thought that was a little too easy, and was over a little too quickly. It would be nice to have to put a little more effort into it.
In any case, my daughter LOVED digging in the pyramid, and proudly displayed her treasures. For that alone, this is worth it.
