ThinkGeek The Dangerous Book for Boys Chemistry Set Review and GIVEAWAY

Product to Review: ThinkGeek The Dangerous Book for Boys Chemistry Set .


Product Information: ThinkGeek started as an idea. A simple idea to create and sell stuff that would appeal to the thousands of people out there who were on the front line and in the trenches as the Internet was forged. ThinkGeek started as a way to serve a market that was passionate about technology, from programmers, engineers, students, lovers of open source, to the masses that helped create the behind-the-scenes Internet culture.

Three out of the four founding ThinkGeek members started an ISP in the Northern Virginia area way way back in 1995. They couldn't afford Solaris, learned about a free UNIX-like OS, and spent almost an entire day downloading it onto over 50 floppies for installation on an old 486 laptop with no cd-rom. After a few years with the ISP gig, the ThinkGeek idea popped into their heads, and, operating out of a spare room at the ISP office they setup shop and launched the site on Friday the 13th, 1999.
A month or so later they were Slashdotted. Promptly thereafter, ThinkGeek was acquired by the good folks at Andover.Net who through an acquisition and a bunch of name changes, is now known as Geeknet. So we're part of a cool gaggle of sites including slashdot.org, sourceforge.net, linux.com, and freshmeat.net. Pretty nice company to be amongst, eh? They're pretty proud of it!
All the founding members are still in town, and they've continued to grow their product line, expand their staff (including several canines) and enhance the way they interface with customers.
My Opinion: My 9 year old grandson was ecstatic to use the ThinkGeek - The Dangerous Book for Boys Chemistry Set! He is a little geek himself...which means he is a very intelligent young man! He has a very high IQ!

The Dangerous Book for Boys Chemistry Set came with over 30 experiments and projects! A stink bomb kit for your favorite lil' stinker!
Every little boy has dreams of being a combination between Bart Simpson and a mad scientist. (When we grow up, we dream of blowing stuff up like Adam & Jamie of Mythbusters.) A companion kit to the Dangerous Book for Boys, this chemistry set will give your geekling the tools and knowledge to make slime to gross out his sister (that's what sisters are for, after all), a smoke bomb to make a clean getaway after stealing cookies from the cookie jar, and a stink bomb to lob into his best friend. He loves that he is learning about Atoms, element and the periodic table by building projects.

He is experimenting with compounds, mixtures, solutions and suspensions. He is learning about organic chemistry also. He is super excited about his chemistry set. He is now making plastic out of milk, Yes, I said milk! This has given us the opportunity to watch him "come alive" when he is doing his experiments! Him and his dad are just having such a blast doing this together(great bonding time).


This is what the Chemistry Set comes with:
  • 32 page, full color manual
  • Cardboard test tube rack
  • Die cut cardboard pieces
  • Two (2) test tubes
  • Test tube stopper
  • Measuring spoon
  • Two (2) pipettes
  • Safety goggles
  • Safety lid opener
  • Two (2) measuring beakers
  • Two (2) measuring beaker lids
  • 9 volt battery clip
  • Ping pong ball
  • Two (2) drinking straws
  • Sodium Carbonate
  • Potassium Hexacyanoferrate(II) (Potassium Ferrocyanide).
  • Ammonium Iron (III) Sulfate (Ferric Ammonium Sulfate)
  • Two (2) Graphite Rods
  • Fourteen (14) Brass Fasteners

This chemistry set MUST be adult supervised!
If you want your child to get a jumpstart on learning chemistry while having fun, this is definitely the chemistry set to do it!  We have had a blast the last couple of days doing experiments! I would also recommend having your camcorder or camera near by. The expressions on their little faces(and big faces...dads) are moments you are going to want to have forever.


 The directions are so easy to follow! It's fun, engaging, and impressive... so much so that they'll not even realize they're learning about atoms, elements, compounds, bonding, acids, bases, electrochemistry and more!

Buy now for only $35.95.


Thanks to ThinkGeek one (1) of my lucky readers will have their very own ThinkGeek The Dangerous Book for Boys Chemistry Set. Yep, your little ones or big ones  can make their own stink bombs! lol
