Product Description

The Classic Sea-Monkeys Kit! Comes with everything you need to raise your own adorable Aqua-Pets--a true American Legend! Comes with instruction booklet and all the accessories you need to raise your sea monkeys.

Sea-Monkeys are a true miracle of nature. They exist in suspended animation inside their tiny eggs for many years. The instant-life crystals, in which the eggs are enclosed, preserve their viability and help to extend still further their un-hatched life span! Sea-Monkeys are real Time-Travelers asleep in biological time capsules for their strange journey into the future! The joy of watching Sea-Monkeys grow offers a lot more than just pure fun. It is one of the outstanding educational experiences of a lifetime, because the entire life-cycle of these unique creatures are fully recreated. Conceived in 1960 as a biological novelty, the "fantasy" has transformed into brilliant reality.

Big Time Toys is a toy company manufacturing and selling its own products to mass-market retailers all around the world. Founded in 1995, the Company's most successful TV-advertised brands include: SuperSwimmer, SockerBoppers, YoYoBall and MoonShoes.

    OMG! This product is amazing! I love how they dance and eat. I never left the house just watching them. I never go to school, too. My mother has called my grandma to make me go, but I do not. Great Sea Monkeys!

      Comments about Big Time Toys The Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys Magic Castle:

      Our suggestion: Please read and stick to the description. We actually made the mistake of overfeading the very little sea monkeys when they had just hatched. My kids were so excited and I said ' let's check how much they are supposed to be fed with' and ... it had happened...we used the wrong end of the spoon, the one that is supposed to be used when they are a little bigger. The water became foggy of too much food and the sm died pretty fast because they siply suffocated. Needless to say how sad my kids were. The second try was successfull and we have had the sm for 2 months now. They seem to be doing well. So, yes, great first pet but they do need to be monitored and taken care of well! The air pump is important to oxygenate their water - careful, don't accidentally suck the sm into the pump though ;0) If you want to clean their tank etc, get the aqua-leash. The other food/first aide/medication items are important as well. So, have Fun but also take good care of them.

            Comments about Big Time Toys The Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys Magic Castle:

            The latest tanks are a real improvement over the last sea monkeys we had but otherwise the kit seems virtually unchanged in over 30 years. Since the time I myself was a child, and now with my own two daughters, sea monkeys have always been fun to hatch and grow. It requires absolutely no skill. And with a little imagination, tiny brine shrimp actually seem like pets. Of course they never turn out as cute as the mermaidish cartoons on the package, but one can always hope to see a tiny crown on top of one. This is a classic every kid should try at least once.

              Comments about Big Time Toys The Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys Magic Castle:

              it was a great product but not very good in winter because you have to wait forever for the eggs to hatch, and you have to wait like 5 days till you can really see them once you hold it up to the light. but i would recommend this to any one who has patience. P.S. the sea monkeys after 5 days are white, they have fins you should see the fins moving really fast, and are the size of a grain of sand with a tail like this >
