Glow In The Dark Star Explosion

This Star Explosion kit allows children to create a universe in their own bedrooms. With over 500 glow-in-the-dark adhesive pieces to choose from (including stars of all sizes, comets, asteroids, and spiral galaxies), junior astronomers can create star displays, black-hole effects, and, with the aid of the included star map, actual constellations. There are 364 small (.25-inch to 1.5-inch) star stickers and about 200 larger (1.5-inch to 5.5-inch) plastic shapes that adhere to walls and ceilings with the putty that comes with the set (it's safe to use on most surfaces). The stickers and plastic shapes are made of Glominite, a safety-tested product that stores light. Each time the Glominite shapes are exposed to light, they recharge--so that the glowing keeps on going. --Kathryn Gustafson

Features:

  • Light up your nights with the Star Explosion Glow In the Dark Set from Great Explorations
  • Decorate your ceiling and walls with more than 700 glow-in-the-dark planets, stars and shapes
  • Our glow-in-the dark stars out-glow all others, thanks to our proprietary Glominite formula
  • Includes Wonder Stars, Twinkle Stars and Galactic Astros, plus adhesives
  • Great Explorations products encourage kids to imagine and create as they explore the world around them

Learning Resources 12-Inch Inflatable Globe

Make a game of geography by combining play and learning! Toss this 12" globe to students and have them identify continents, countries, capitals and oceans or just hang it for display. Clear labels identify major bodies of water, lines of latitude and longitude, continents, countries and cities. It can be used in a classroom full of students or at home to educate just your child.

Not just about Geography

Use the globe to study more than just the continents, countries and capitals. You can point out the striking differences between the world's land and water formations. Use the Inflatable Globe to introduce the day and night cycles and time zones, and to illustrate how the eastern and western halves of Earth experience opposite times of day. This globe also provides a great tool for discussing geographical references in literature and culture, and brings history lessons to life!

Let the global games begin!

Play "Country Toss" for an around-the-globe blitz of world wisdom! Throw the globe into the air for your children to catch; then, have them identify the name of the country under their right hand. Or, let them pick a letter, and challenge them to name a country while pointing it out for you on the globe. Next, ask them to jump and touch the hanging globe to learn about the poles and their features. So many cool game-play possibilities in just one versatile globe!

Original Hoberman Sphere--Rainbow

Original Hoberman Sphere--Rainbow Lowest new price: $27.96
List price: $34.99
Brand: Hoberman
Model: HS104

• Winner of the Dr. Toy "Classic Toy", Parents' Choice Gold and Oppenheim "Blue Chip" Platinum awards

• Expands from 9.5" to 30" diameter

• Crafted of colorful plastic

• No assembly required

• For ages 4 and up

The Hoberman Sphere starts small and grows larger. And vice versa. Made of rainbow-colored plastic links, the sphere expands to 30 inches in diameter and contracts to a compact 9.5 inches. There's a hypnotic fascination in making the sphere expand and contract over and over again, but if kids want to do more with their sphere, a guide (included) lists some possibilities. How about trying the ballerina spin, the flip down, or the hot potato? The sphere can also be a fashion accessory. Think spiked hat or, even better, space helmet. Another option is to hang the sphere as a mobile. A pulley system is included, and a pull of the ring will cause the sphere to contract. Release the ring for expansion. Plenty of fun, the Hoberman Sphere might get kids thinking about mechanical engineering and some folding/unfolding projects of their own. Winner of the Parents' Choice Award. --Wendy Slotboom

Features:

  • Expands from 9.5" to 30"
  • No assembly required
  • Includes 21 Cool Things To Do game sheet
  • Includes a pully that can be attached to the ceiling allowing you to open and close your sphere.

GeoSafari Motorized Solar System

The Motorized Solar System and Planetarium takes the abstract concept of the solar system and brings it to life with light and motion. The activities make for a powerful, hands-on learning experience. To teach children about stars and constellations, use the star dome to transform any classroom into a planetarium.

Includes:
  • Central tower
  • Eight planet orbs plus one dwarf planet orb with identifying planetary symbols*
  • Nine metal rods, one for each of the eight planets plus one for Pluto
  • Sun sphere (with symbol)
  • Northern Hemisphere star dome
  • Krypton bulb
Observing the Solar System in Action

Seeing the model in action—revolving, with the light on—is a good starting point for children to learn about the solar system. If looking over the model from the sun’s north pole, the planets orbit in a counter-clockwise direction. Dimming lights in the room where you use this model will make the demonstration more dramatic. In a darkened room, children will be able to see the sun’s light illuminating the planets. In addition, the black support rods and tower will be less visible.

Scientific concepts that are introduced include:
  • The sun is at the center of the solar system.
  • Earth is one of eight planets in our solar system.
  • The planets travel around the sun constantly.
  • The planets move in generally circular patterns called orbits.
  • The sun gives off energy. The planets absorb and reflect this energy.
  • All the planets move in the same direction and on the same plane as they orbit the sun.
  • Each planet orbits the sun within a flat “slice of space.” Each travels in a basically circular path, without going up and down.
  • The planets, as a group, also travel within a fairly flat “slice of space.”
  • We see the universe from a particular location on Earth. Our view of the planets and stars is affected by our location.

Features:

  • Observe the vastness of space in a dramatic light show
  • Base features planetary longitude marks so the planets can be set up to their correct positions
  • A/C adapter not included
  • Includes a Stardome that converts the unit to a planetarium
  • The central tower and the planetary support rods are black so that they "disappear" in a darkened room for a spectacular effect
  • The unique stardome converts the unit into a planetarium

Lowest used price: $12.69
List price: $21.99
Brand: Scientific Explorer
Model: 0SA200

The POOF-Slinky 0SA200 Scientific Explorer Meteor Rocket Science Kit will have children both young and old mixing baking soda and vinegar to create a fuel that launches their very own rocket up to 100-feet in the air. As you watch a rocket blast off, you might ask yourself "What makes it go"? The secret to rocket power can be found in the work of Sir Isaac Newton's laws of motion where every action produces an equal and opposite reaction. The 17-inch Meteor Rocket is a powerful, high performance aerial toy that's easy to assemble and powered by carbon dioxide gas that forms from the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar. The high pressure-fueling module is the secret to controlling gas pressure inside the Meteor Rocket, making it so you can adjust the reaction's power to the right level for young racers or advanced land speed challengers. As you learn more, experiment with different proportions to create your own secret rocket fuel mixture. Your child will see chemistry and physics in a new light, while exploring chemical reactions, matter, energy, aerodynamics and more. This kit includes a nose cone, foam tape, (2) red plastic film, plastic bottle, (2) Balsa wood sheets, rubber stopper, silver durable, fin holder, fin template, clear tubing, clear rocket body and instructions. The Meteor Rocket is part of the exceptional series of home science kits based on the nationally recognized Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMS) program pioneered at UC Berkley's Lawrence Hall of Science. Scientific Explorer is the industry leader in fun, educational and activity-based science kits loved by both parents and children. The POOF-Slinky 0SA200 Scientific Explorer The Meteor Rocket Science Kit is recommended for children 9-years of age and older.

People have been fascinated by rockets since the first ones were launched in China almost a thousand years ago. Now your kids can observe the principles at work behind rocketry with the Meteor Rocket Kit from Scientific Explorer. The kit contains everything rocketeers need to build a rocket and send it shooting to heights of 100 feet. Rather than using gunpowder or liquid fuel, the Meteor is powered by baking soda and vinegar, so it's safe and can be launched again and again. A specially designed fueling module lets kids experiment to find just the right vinegar and soda mixture. The informative guide gives detailed instructions as well as information on rockets, chemistry, and suggestions for experiments. This Scientific Explorer kit is a 1999 Parents' Choice recommended toy. --Lisa Whipple
