The 'lab equipment' in this set is as much fun to play with as it's useful for exploring basic science concepts behind simple machines. Ten double-sided cards set up challenges for kids to guess the results, then use the sturdy, toy-like components to test their 'hypothesis'. While our tesrs had more interested in this set,  than others in teh line, they still preferred just playing with the components more than working through the accompanying experiment cards.
