Toy Review! Magnificent Manicure Kit - WIN ONE!

Hi ladies - told you I'd have a couple more coming :)

Magnificent Manicure Kit - by Elmers

Scientific Explorer partnered with UC Berkeley's Great Exploration in Math and Science (GEMS) program to create fun educational science kits like the Magnificent Manicure Kit.

I know Amber loves interactive toys - ones that she can make things with and we've gotten past the stage of playdoh and the easy bake oven. This was a fantastic idea for her... age appropriate and she could definitely handle the concept :)

It's has also been picked as the Creative Child Magazines 2009 Toy of the Year Award in the Educational Toys category!!

You get everything you need to turn your house into a nail spa for the day:

  • Crystal mud
  • Bath salt
  • Lavender mist fragrance
  • Cucumber melon fragrance
  • Soaking tray
  • Measuring spoon
  • Mixing spoon
  • Pipette
  • Lotion base
  • Dye
  • Glitter
  • Nail buffer
  • Toe separators
  • Pumice stone

We invited a bunch of girls over (ages 11-14) and bought a couple extra toe spacers at target at the $1 section to keep it sanitary :) They had a ball!! They made their own crystal mud and sea salt scrub - their hands were really soft afterwards. And they did their own manicures. All the kids loved adding the stuff together and measuring it all. I'm allergic to a lot of things but didn't have a problem with these items at all :)
