We have previously reviewed the Beakers Creatures – Liquid Reactor Super Lab and the Magnification Chambers sets and as we really enjoyed these we were delighted to get the chance to review the new addition to the Beakers Creatures sets.
The new Whirling Wave Reactor set certainly did not disappoint.
The girls love collectables and are always really excited to see what they will get. I love that these collectables are not just your average, get a toy inside an egg. It’s also an educational activity where they learn something from it and lasts a lot longer that just popping open an egg.
What you get inside the 12 Piece set
Five piece Whirling Wave Reactor Chamber
One Reactor Pod with a mystery Beaker Creature
One Limited Edition Colour Creature
Two Classification cards
Two Mini-posters with amazing science facts
One Experiment guide
The girls found it super easy to put everything together and it only took one minute.
First we tried the colour changing experiment and added some cold water to the chamber and popped the creature inside and spun it round using the crank.
Isabella loved watching it change colour then we put it in a bowl of warm water and watched it change colour again!
Beakers Creatures – Whirling Wave Reactor
First put the reactor pod into the reactor chamber and fill it with water.
Next turn the crank to trigger the whirling, bubbling reaction.
Keep turning until you start to see all of the pod dissolve.
Then for the fun part, revealing which creature you got!
(you may need to dip it into a bowl of water to wash off any excess)
Use the mini-poster to learn your creatures name.
This time we got “Slurpus” from the Dogstars collection in Series 2.
Lastly fill in your classification card and add them to your collection.
There are a further three experiments to complete with this set. So plenty to keep children engaged and so much fun to be had.
I really like this set and for a RRP of £16 I think this is a fantastic set, that can be used again and again. You can buy extra Reactor Pods for RRP £4 from series 1 and series 2 but you can also use the set for the other experiments without purchasing another Reactor Pod.
They are an amazing pocket money gift and my girls just love collecting them all and using them for small world play and putting them in the slime recipe from the other Beakers Creatures Sets.
If you are looking for a fun way to introduce your children to science then this is the set for you.
Thanks for reading and we look forward to bringing you more fun stuff soon!
