    Comments about Educational Insights Nancy B's Black Light & Nature Journal:

    We were sent this from Educational Insights to review and we tested it out with a family friend. She had this to say, ""I think it is really cool that you can see some rocks glow. It was fun to use the illuminator pen to secretly write my name on things. I like being able to shine the black light on different things to see if they would glow. It was fun searching for counterfeit money too!"

      Comments about Educational Insights Nancy B's Black Light & Nature Journal:

      My daughter - 10 - and her friend had a lot of fun playing with this toy. They first stayed within the scope of the instructions, and learned what the black light reveals and how different substances varied in their response. Then they got more inventive and sillier, going outside of the box and testing different items not listed in the instructions to see the result. These experiments spurred their scientific curiosity, with them next going well outside of the scope to create concoctions and potions. They got sillier and sillier as crafted new experiments while having a great time. So not only was the toy itself educational, it created a mindset of intellectual curiosity that will serve them well beyond playing with this toy.

        We have 2 girls, aged 6 and 4, who were both intrigued by the black light illuminator! They loved using it to examine different items, some on their own, some as proposed by the book included in the package. It was fine for our 6 year old to use the illuminator on her own. However, we made sure an adult was around when our 4 year old participated too to ensure that she never looked into the light. (She was very intrigued by the illuminator too!) They examined all types of objects around our home, and used many of the suggestions in the included Journal. The toy is well made and seems quite durable.

          My 9 & 7 year old were fighting over it the first day we got it. They had a great time hiding in the bathroom and using the black light on different objects and seeing which things would glow. The workbook that it comes with, is very well written and easy to follow with tons of interesting facts and really fun activities. I would say about half the activities need the help of an adult, so I thought it was a great way to do something fun and educational together. I like that there is a good balance of things that they can do on their own as well using everyday household items. My daughters were also fascinated by the magic pen and writing secret messages to each other. Overall, we thought it was a great product. I'm always on the hunt for unique birthday gifts for their friends, and I think this would be such a fun gift.

            I personally really liked the set bc it was fun and educational at the same time. My girls had a fun time just playing with the black light. It's actually pretty good quality for a kids toy. I def. would recommend it for OLDER kids. i have a 10 year old that loves "Science" so she really enjoyed the activity book that came with it and actually went through the whole book. Where as my 8 year old didn't care so much for the book and just wanted to play with the light. But overall 2 thumbs up.

            ----------------------------------------------------
            I think that this was a pretty good product. It even came with little activity book for you to experiment on. With interesting facts inside the book, I think this is definitely something u should check out. The only thing that i wish was different was the size of the booklet, i wish it was a bit longer- but other than that, it's really fun to play with. I liked writing stuff secretly between things. Bummer that the flowers in the booklet (the one that glows under black light ) was out of season, i knew i had it in the backyard. I really liked playing with it and the black light i guess can be used for other things.

              Comments about Educational Insights Nancy B's Black Light & Nature Journal:

              My almost 8 year old daughter loved this science kit. I think she sat in the dark bathroom for almost two hours with it. The activities were appropriate for her age and she understood all of the concepts. Her younger cousins were over (age 6 and 4) and they equally squealed at the black light illuminator. After the book was completed, they went through pages and pages of white paper to write secret notes to each other. I would definitely purchase this gift for friends and family.

                Great scientific kit for young learners. The notebook provides ample space for kids to write and record their own observations like a true scientist. We liked that the experiments called for materials that can be easily found - from milk to rocks. Definitely the best part of this kit is the invisible ink pen it comes with. My kid also really loved learning how to write in code! I wish it came with protective goggles to help shield the light, since it is really bright. Also, because the light it really bright, the objects being examined all lit up in some way, and sometimes it wasn't clear which items were merely reflecting the light.

                  My daughter loves science, so she was excited to get this toy! I think black lights and invisible ink are fascinating to kids, so this toy automatically hooks their interest. Educational Insights does a great job of taking the black light experience past pure fun and into the realm of science education. The journal has some great science experiments set up for kids to try including looking at money with the black light, examining household items with the black light, and more. The only negative for this toy are that I think most kids will need some guidance in understanding and gathering the materials for the experiments. Overall, this is a great educational toy for kids that incorporates science. I received this toy from Educational Insights in exchange for this review; all opinions are my own.

                    I gave this product to my 8 and 9 year old daughters one night when we had shut down access to screens. The girls really enjoyed many of the various activities and the pen actually worked exceptionally better than the ones I remember from the science kits in "my day". The light does not come with batteries though which is my only complaint as I had to scour the house for extra ones before they were ready to play. I would highly recommend this toy for a vacation or camping evening activity or late night car ride. In all, I think that my kids played with this toy for about 3 hours.

                      Kids love this. They love to go into a dark room, close the door, and see what was written with the pen. Works with a highlighter, too. Made my son's shoes look zany. And they wanted to show their friends. Will be fun for years to come.
