About Us

Our passion for science, exploration and discovery starts at home. We have six children that are as different as children could possibly be. They play soccer, they play football, they swim, they ride bikes, they dance, they play lacrosse, they play basketball, they play dress up and yes, sometimes, they play video games and surf You Tube watching silly videos. A couple are very smart, a couple are very clever and all of them are pretty nice (most of the time).

Like all parents, we struggle with buying gifts that engage them, interest them and excite them. Many of the toys available from our favorite retailers center around movie characters and violence, and most are just more commercialized versions of the same toys that existed when we were kids. Is it really necessary to have wire cutters at your side on Christmas morning?

We are a family run business that selects only those toys that we would purchase for our own family and friends. Our kids select our products, test our products, participate in videos and pack and ship orders. No joke, our son Luke boxed and shipped over 1,000 chemistry sets himself last Christmas. When our kids head to birthday parties, we head to the office to shop.

We are the leading retailer of educational science kits for kids. We have the widest selection available of high quality, kid tested science kits and toys. Our products will engage, challenge and teach your children. We have all of the leading brands such as Thames & Kosmos, Smithsonian, Sea Monkeys, Estes, OWI, Uncle Milton, Smartlab, Scientific Explorer, Slinky Science, Wild Science, Young Scientist, Magic School Bus, Dowling, Be Amazing, Dr. Cool, Hexbugs, etc. We have chemistry sets, rockets, ant farms, crystal growing kits, engine kits, microscopes, robots, magnets, green science kits, fuel cell kits, etc. We have kits that allow you to grow living creatures like triops, frogs, Sea Monkeys, ants, etc. We have products covering more exciting and engaging areas of discovery than you can possibly imagine.

The best part: Our products allow you to engage with and work side by side your child. They allow you to learn, experience and share together.

Thank you for listening. We hope that we have a chance to earn your business.

    Now you know what we do. Here are a few things we don't do:
    • We don't sell toys that promote violence.
    • We don't sell toys we wouldn't buy for our own children.
    • We don't sell or share your email address or personal information with any other company or organization.
