We were kindly gifted two toys by Great Gizmos to trial and see how we got on! The boys are always complaining there is nothing for them to trial so they jumped at the chance of seeing how a couple of spy kits would work out for them including a safe and fingerprint kit.
First up is the 4M Spy Science Alarmed Safe Kit. Ethan was the first to trial this but it has since been passed down to Evie to keep her notes etc in as novelty wore off once the kids learned his code! ha
You can build your own double protected money safe by connecting a buzz alarm circuit and a simple dial lock. Store your pocket money, top secrets and treasures inside! No spy or burglar could ever break in without the key or security code. Your treasures are under safe protection!
Easy to build and as long as your little sisters don’t get their hands on the stickers before they are placed on the safe then all is well, otherwise it ends in tears and you are explaining that the safe will still work ever though it doesn’t have the numbers around the center dial!
Priced at £18.95 and aimed at age 8 years+
The second kit we tried was the 4M Kidz Labs Finger Print Kit. This went down a lot better than the safe as it was more interactive and involved all of the children trying out their finger prints on the ink pad and ‘swabbing’ for prints on different items. There is a lot included in the kit but make sure you don’t open the dusting powder without supervision – EVERYWHERE!!
Become a Detective! Learn how detectives identify suspects and record important clues found at crime scenes. Record, collect and identify fingerprints with the super dusting powder!
A great kit for all those future police men and women or anyone wanting to keep an eye on who is touching things they shouldn’t!
Priced at £11.95 and aimed at age 8+
