Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work My husband made this with my little boy after he brought these with his pocket money. Followed the instructions to the letter and nothing, no crystals but one very disappointed little boy who wished he hadn’t wasted his birthday money on them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Product! Bought this for my 9 year old grandson who loves science. So disappointed to find several of the listed contents were missing including the alum which meant we could not make the geodes. We followed the instructions to the letter for the crystal experiments which stated that after making the saturated solution, the crystals could be seen forming within a few hours. Not so!! A week later, we are still waiting!! The photographs on the front of the box are totally misleading!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult Difficult to use and follow instructions, the crystal never worked.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fun product A lot of fun and exciting to observe crystals grow. However to get them to grow i only needed to add about half of the amount of water recommended. For best results stir chemicals with water on a stove to allow the heat disdolve the chemical properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t work! We followed the directions and even watched a YouTube video and the Crystal growing was an epic fail! Don’t be fooled by the pictures on the box.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!!! I recently bought this product for my daughter's 10th birthday. She was so excited to grow these crystals, tried the 1st batch and absolutely nothing happened. So she asked for my help to make a 2nd in case she'd done something wrong. I helped her and yet again nothing!! Just a stone in liquid, not a smidgen of a crystal, she was so disheartened, not a great birthday.
