    Product review of 4M Crystal Growing Kit
    Posted 8/24/2014 by Sheena Callahan

    I had ordered a crystal growing kit previously from Fat Brain Toys and my 11 year old grandson loved it. I then ordered this 4M Crystal kit for him at the start of school (first year in middle school). The crystal that grew is really impressive. He is so excited about it - and proud of it. It currently sits on top of the entertainment center.

    Fun parent/child project
    Posted 5/29/2014

    I have purchased two crystal growing kits. The first I bought about a year ago for my son's 10th birthday. The directions are very detailed and specific. Much like following a baking recipe, if the directions aren't followed exactly the crystal won't grow. We read the directions all the way through first, and then followed them all. We set the resulting "thing" on the counter, untouched so as not to ruin the crystals. The crystals did grow and they came out really nicely. The growing container serves as a display case and a year later, my son still has the crystals on his desk and they still look great. Obviously, they must be handled with care, much like a porcelain figurine, or they would break. I recently bought the crystals again as part of a birthday present for an 8 yr old boy who is interested in rocks and crystals and has parents that enjoy learning projects too. I would say that parents should expect to help with this project as it does have very specific directions and requires hot water. If you have an older child who is an experienced baker/cook/recipe follower, then it would be a fun solo project. Watching the crystals successfully grow and progress is really captivating.

    Crystal Kit
    Posted 11/12/2013 by Gale Whitten

    This was the only gift I was a little sad about since my grandson's favorite color is red and the picture showed it as RED but when it came the box said it was blue! He is 12 and a VERY difficult age to call but since red is his "thing" I thought that alone would please him. Too much bother to return though so I do hope he will like it anyway!

    Please note, as described in the description - color may vary. On the bright side, no matter what the color, watching crystals grow is eye-catching fun.
