The Ultimate Laser Lab comes with a guide with 5 activities in it that are pretty cool. The toilet experiment is awesome. My Little One and I had a great time doing the laser light experiment in the toilet. This experiment really shows the difference in how light and laser react differently.
Of course the 2 mirrors also offer great ways to explore how lasers work.
The laser can be changed between the dot light, straight line, and a star which allows for more interesting factors in the experiments.
My Little One also loves playing with the laser with our cat. 🙂 So the laser is not only child approved, parent approved, and feline approved. 🙂
I love products that get my Little One engaged in learning and doing experiments.
The Ultimate Laser Lab is recommended for ages 8 to 12 years old. I agree with this age ranking. The laser is ranked as safe for ages 6 and older.
