Comments about Thames & Kosmos Candy Chemistry:

I bought this for a granddaughter who likes to cook and had requested a science kit. I also got her a kit to grow little gremlins or some sort of little fish??? She opened that one first and was waiting to get home for the other one I think, but seemed to be intrigued with both.

Disappointing

By EML

Comments about Thames & Kosmos Candy Chemistry:

I brought this as a Christmas gift for my 10 year old daughter and was under the impression that it came with the ingredients needed to actually make the candy - like how a chemistry set comes with the necessary chemicals for experiments...

It's my fault for not double checking what was included, but my daughter was really disappointed when she opened the box and found only empty containers and a recipe book.

I was really disappointed that I spent almost $50 for some empty containers and a recipe book - if I'd have realized that we had to provide the ingredients for the "Candy Chemistry" I would have just looked up how to make your own candy on the internet...

Comments about Thames & Kosmos Candy Chemistry:

This product is recommended for a 10 year old kid. Its very hard to find a product to gift a 10 year old. In that aspect, I'd suggest this is a suitable one and also very educational. Its something that will interest anybody at this age to try out new things with this product.

Comments about Thames & Kosmos Candy Chemistry:

lots of fun, to create the recipes, and perform experiments. A little bit of a disappointment that the kit does not come with any ingredients to perform the experiments (similar to getting a toy that requires batteries, but they are not included).
