This box was a pleasant surprise for me and my very science oriented daughter.
The package was extremely well packed and everything was undamaged (see enclosed pics)
I won’t ruin the surprise on what was inside but it was a lovely experiment, and my daughter loved reasearching and doing it. Everything was included in the box which was very helpful

This was a hit for my child! She could easily do it alone, but honestly it was so much fun I enjoyed helping. We made this a family fun night with the experiment. My child really enjoyed doing this. We are looking forward to the next box.

I don't have kids, but MEL Chemistry experiments is an incredible experience even when you're an adult. Some experiments are mind-blowing indeed, some are less impressive visually, but very interesting from the point of science behind it. I also like VR part. I am not a tech savvy, but I was truly amused by the view of molecular world. I definitely recommend MEL experiments, and it's not necessary to have a kid to enjoy the mysteries of science.
