We purchase it for my nephew. He loves it
This is such a nice idea.
my son received this as a gift and he loved it. kept him entertained for hours and he was so excited when he dug up his first gem... comes with explanations on each gem found very informative
When my son was 9 years old (he is now 10), he insisted he wanted to buy this after seeing an advert for it in the Nat Geo Kids magazine. We got it at Makro and remember it was reasonably priced (around R120 if I'm not mistaken). He excitedly opened it when he got home and spent the next few hours digging through the brick with the digging tools to find tiger's eye, amethyst and quartz gemstones. I remember one of the main reasons he wanted to purchase it was to get the tiger's eye gem stone for his collection, so he was incredibly happy to find it. The kit is educational and includes a learning handbook, digging tools and a magnifying glass. I think it's an excellent gift for older kids.
