Crystal Laboratory (DON"T but it!)

"Rubbish!. doesn't include everything you will need to carry out experiments. Instruction book is poorly written and can be quite vague (a text translated into english and not proof read??!)"

Crystal Laboratory (DON"T but it!)

"The general concept of this set is good and some interesting observations and results can be achieved. However the overall standard and execution of this set by Clementoni leaves a lot to be desired. The set does NOT include everything you will need to carry out the activities described. An indication of this on the box would be helpful. The instruction/information booklet needs proof reading! I am guessing it is a translation into english as some of the grammar is a bit odd. The instructions can also be a bit vague and confusing. e.g. when colouring crystals the instructions state " immerse the crystals for a short time in the coloured liquid for a short while." Short time/short while!? Some indication of time scale would be a bit more helpful! Not worth the £30 price tag. Disappointing!"

Confusing manual

"Water molecule diagram describes water being made up of one hydrogen atom and one WATER atom!!!
Instructions for making crystals is very very confusing for adults let alone children."
