Your child loves to discover things and do research? Then an experiment kit is just the thing. Playful learning and progress in school are also part of it!
We have not only written a checklist with the most important criteria for experimental kits, but also compiled many product recommendations for you.
- Different topics in experimental kits are adapted to the age. Thus, not every topic is suitable for all age groups.
- From about 4 years, the first experimentation kit can be tried. Up to 7 years, however, you should choose experiment kits that cover several areas. Many small experiments with balloons or flummis, for example, are more suitable for this age group in terms of stamina.
- If your child is older, experiment kits that specialize in one area come into question. Possible topics are science or technology. Especially in the field of science, your child learns a lot through play, which also provides advantages in school.
- It is important that you pay attention to quality and workmanship. There must be a test mark (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
- In no case may pollutants or plasticizers be contained. A bad smell, for example, can indicate this.
- However, you can’t go wrong with certain brands like Kosmos or Galileo in terms of quality and safety.

FAQ About Experimental Kits
Experimental kits arouse curiosity and allow children to learn through play. The children discover the natural sciences up close. In addition, logic as well as patience is promoted.
The topic depends on the child’s interest. Whether physics, biology or chemistry, if a child is not interested, the experiment box will not bring joy and learning success. For children up to the age of 8, an experimental kit with several topics is also recommended.
A distinction is made between experimental kits with a goal, those for breeding and the third for discovery. The former is about building, such as a robot. Breeding, on the other hand, is a lengthy process where a lot of observation and excitement is built up. The classic experimental kit, however, is for discovering and offers various experiments.
