Paleontology set provides a realistic archaeological challenge on a student-size scale.

Invites students to excavate and assemble 2 complete velociraptor skeletons from “fossilized” rock like real archaeologists



Provides the perfect hands-on activity for dinosaur units



Includes excavation tool, dust brush, wax adhesive and 32-page Activity Guide with complete instructions and velociraptor facts

Grades 2+





          I have always been interested in Archeology, Paleontology, Geology etc.. To me it feels like a treasure hunt and is always fun to see what you can find. Well I am very excited my son is interested in those things to and think it is awesome Educational insights offers products to spark young kids interest. The Geosafari Dino digs are really cool it is just like you are actually excavating dinosaur bones. The bones come in cased in a big square chunk of clay and you have to dig and dust the dirt away until you find something and once you find your first fossil you are hooked! well at least my son was he loves it and it really is a project it is not something you can finish in a day he has worked on it alot and has only recovered one bone and has uncovered a few more he is still working on excavating. He asks to play with it almost everyday It does get messy so be prepared and lay down newspapers and keep a broom handy for when your finished. IT comes with a book of facts on the dinosaur you are digging up and my son keeps it right next to him while hes digging so he can look up what bone he think he has found. I love that he is learning while he is doing something fun and cant wait to see the finished velociraptor skeletons! It comes with wax to  hold it together,  a stand and a sticker with the name of the dinosaur so we will definitely be putting this on a shelf so he can proudly display his "treasure". 





They have a variety of products that are specific about learning about rocks, minerals and fossils I think the one we are going to try out next is the prospectors mystery rock I think its something my kids would also love.

You can purchase the Geosafari Dino Digs Velociraptors for $19.99

OR

You can win it! Educational Insights has been so kind to offer one lucky reader win the same set as i reviewed!

Spinmaster Moon Dough Magic Zoo Review



Moon Dough is an amazing new molding compound unlike anything you’ve ever played with before. Extremely Light, Soft, and Marshmallow-like, Moon Dough does not stick or stain to virtually any material, and never dries out so you can use it again and again! Moon Dough is wheat-free, hypo-allergenic, and comes in 8 fun colours! It’s out of this world!


I recieved a fun opportunity from Spinmaster toys to review the new Moon dough Magic zoo playset!



Features


•Magically mold 3 different zoo animals

•Watch them walk
•Includes one Popper Fence Mold
•3 colors of Moon Dough
•Wheat-free and hypoallergenic for sensitive little hands
•Manufacturer's Suggested Age: 3 years and Up








Create and play in your own amazing Moon Dough Zoo! Watch as the animals come alive and begin to walk! Life in the Zoo is always on the move with Moon Dough’s easy life-like moldings. Just place your Moon Dough into the magic molding Zoo and watch as 1 of 3 animals magically comes to life and walks out! When you can pet animals this soft and fluffy, there’s no way you’ll ever want to leave! And because this magical dough never dries out, you can visit the Zoo as many times as you want!




My kids love it! They have hours of endless fun with the moon dough itself molding and making all kids off stuff but the Magic zoo playset is awesome they both love watching the animals walk out on there own. At first I wasn't able to get them to walk out I thought it just didn't work I had the hardest time but I didn't give up and soon realized I was using way to much dough in the mold. You do not need to pack it full of dough i recommend closing up the mold thing first and then put dough in thought the bottom making sure to get it all the way to the head of the mold. Then you set it up on the play set with making sure to pop the feet in place and wind it up and watch it go.  We really enjoy playing with this set it is alot of fun and I will recommend it to anyone!

CLOSED Kirklands Folding Ottoman Review and giveaway! Ends 2/28

Kirkland’s is a leading specialty retailer of home décor in the United States, operating approximately 302 stores in 29 states. Kirkland’s was co-founded in 1966 by our current Chairman Emeritus, Carl Kirkland. We opened our first store in Jackson, Tennessee and have grown steadily thereafter.

Our stores also offer an extensive assortment of holiday merchandise, as well as items carried throughout the year suitable for giving as gifts. We provide our customers an engaging shopping experience characterized by a diverse, ever-changing merchandise selection at surprisingly attractive prices. Our stores offer a unique combination of style and value that has led to our emergence as a leader in home décor and has enabled us to develop a strong customer loyalty.



I am always looking for new, stylish and functional ways to store and organize things in my home. I love anything that has a dual function like Kirkland's Folding storage ottomans.


  • Ottoman measures 16"Wx16"

  • Brown faux leather

  • Side handles and a folding design that allows for easy assembly and storage
    I was Thrilled to have been given the opportunity to review one. I received the Pink Folding Storage ottoman I chose pink because I thought it would be perfect for my daughters room.
    Isn't it cute! I'm not sure if many of you have had bad experiences with folding storage I know i have had ran across many flimsy and unstable products and am now very leery of any type of folding storage. When I received the ottoman I was truly amazed at the weight and the size It was definitely not what I had expected. It is very well made and has a very nice thick faux leather covering. I didn't waste any time and unfolded and set it up in my daughters room and again the size of it amazed me it was deep and fits alot of stuff. We put toys in it my daughter loved helping me fill it up, put the lid on then she sat on it! at first I was worried I didn't want it to collapse or break so I had to do the motherly thing and weight test it I sat on it, put her on my lap, stood on it even had my husband come and sit on it and it didn't budge, indent or give out It is solid. I really love this Ottoman and have no come up with so many different uses for it like holding yarn or fabric in the craft room, books, magazines or even throws in the family room, I am really looking to buy the Rectangular folding ottoman for our bedroom
    I think it would be the perfect place to put sheets, pillows or even keepsakes. I want one for every room of the house! They even have a zebra printed ottoman that would definitely be a focal point in any room.
    Kirkland's folding storage ottomans retail for 24.99 but i see on the site right now certain ones are only $19.99! I would jump on that deal if i were you.
    OR
    You can win one because Kirkland's has been kind enough to offer 1 lucky reader to win there choice of 1 of the 3 ottomans I have pictured above. (Brown, Pink or Zebra)
