Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from niece loved it This is very easy exploration toy. It takes some work to extract the gem or fossil but that gives the child the sense of dedication and reward felt by real archeologists. It will keep her busy for hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Expectations My grandson loved this! My daughter reported (they live a few states away) that she allowed him one clay stone a day to make them last longer in the snowy indoor weather. She reported that there was not one but several surprises in each of the stones, which made it even more exciting for a snowbound 5 year old to explore. The best part: he took each day's "discoveries" to bed with him, he thought they were so special! Is there a higher recommendation than that?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Messy but fun I gave this to my 3 yr old granddaughter for her birthday. The chiseling away at the rock was fun but took too long. My daughter looked it up online and discovered if you soak the eggs in water it softened them up. Although it still took a lot of time and was still messy there wasn’t dust covering everything. My granddaughter loved digging out her gemstones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun! Our child loves this. Each egg has about 4 rocks in them! Cool toy and gives her time to play by herself

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps them quiet This kept my 4.5 yr old quiet and focused. From time to time she needed a bit of assistance since she was excited by seeing a piece if the surprise inside. It’s recommended that you have old newspaper or a craft tray while doing this chisel work- will get dusty. I was even surprised to find that each stone had 4 minerals inside although they were all the same just different cuts of it. It also came with a fact sheet to educate children on their findings ;-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun by messy Got these for my son (7 years old) for Christmas. He liked digging through the rock, but they make a huge mess. There was clay all over his clothes, all over the table, all over the floor. I did one of the rocks too and had a hard time not making a mess as pieces are flying off while you chip away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! My son chose this for his 6th birthday gift and loves it so much! It’s a fun and exciting experience for kids to get to dig. A little messy but worth it for all the fun that he had!!
