Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money There were a few nice fossils, but most of them just looked like rocks. My daughter got not one, but two pieces of fossilized “waste”. She wanted to throw them away; they really actually look like actual pieces of “waste”. I can’t blame her, we threw them out. All the other fossils are fossilized sea shells. No trilobites, no shark teeth, nothing she was wanting. The product is overpriced for the quality of fossils you get in my opinion, and you don’t get one of everything in the fossil guide. Huge bummer because the guide had some cool things in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 year old grandson loved this My grandson is 7 years old. He was very focused on this project from the moment he opened it on Christmas Day. He spent hours of patient work and anticipation until he found all of the fossils. It sparked lots of good questions and further research about fossils.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fun for inquisitive minds My 6 year old grandson had great fun digging the fossils, washing and comparing them with the book to see what they were. He was so excited to show them to his Dad and explain what they were. Can't wait to give him the Gems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great time for my 7 year old We had done the gem stones when my daughter was younger and it was awesome. This one did not disappoint either. She happily spent 45 minutes digging around and cleaning fossils. Yes, it's a bit messy but not the messiest thing we've ever done. A little water does help if it gets hard to scrape. We didn't get all the different types of fossils but most of them and even small ones were fun to look at. The book is a great starting place for information about the fossils. We looked at them under the microscope for additional fun. And she still gets joy showing them to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend I don't often write reviews, but I was so pleased with this fossil kit. I'd say any kid from about 4 up would like this, and as an adult I was as excited as my kids were! I have to admit that when my kids stopped partway through, I couldn't stop myself from doing a little digging without them. There were about 10 actual fossils buried in the clay, ranging in size from about the size of my fingernail to maybe two inches. It's been a full year, and my kids have lost some of the pieces, but I remember the three coolest were an ammonite (it was cut in half, but this was nice since they could see the polished as well as the rough side), a trilobite, and a mosasaur tooth. There was also some fossilized poo, which my two boys thought was hilarious. The clay block does make a mess. I ended up moving it outside. It'll soften in water, if your kids get impatient, and while this makes a bigger mess it makes digging easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We gave this to our 7 year old granddaughter for her birthday. ( Had given her the Mine for Gems the Christmas before) She loved them...couldn't get home from school fast enough to start messin' around. It is messy and once they've discovered everything it's over...but what fun in the meantime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I gave Mine for Fossils to both of our grandsons, ages 6 and 8. I also gave Mine for Gems to the 6-year old. The loved the activity, and like adding to their collections. As an educator, I know the work involved in the project adds to the educational value and appreciation of the gift.
