Cool­Canucks Blog Contest ~ 4M Science Kit Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011



Let’s face it. Kids today know a lot more than we did at that same age thanks to the lovely tech­nol­ogy. At 3 and 4 years old, my nieces and nephews want to be on the com­puter just like a grown-up, and by age 6 they are com­plete com­puter whizes!!

Back then, the only way we wanted to stay in the house was due to the fact that we were either deathly ill, or poor weather con­di­tions, and we always whined that there was really noth­ing excit­ing to do! Today, chil­dren never seem to run out of inter­est­ing ideas to keep them­selves occu­pied. I per­son­ally think that it it alright for kids to be on the com­puter so long as they are view­ing web pages that are per­tain­ing to their age group, how­ever I also feel that their time online should be mon­i­tored and a cer­tain time limit should be in order so that the chil­dren can move on to doing some­thing more pro­duc­tive and edu­ca­tional. Thanks to, your child can be par­tak­ing in an edu­ca­tional project with min­i­mal super­vi­sion required!

 has an exten­sive array of edu­ca­tional books, sci­ence kits, toys (both nature and wildlife), Nets, Cages, Cases, Catch­ers, Mag­ni­fy­ing Glasses, wildlife and sci­ence posters, Real Insect Col­lec­tions, Dis­sec­tion Col­lec­tions, kids cos­tumes and cloth­ing, and a whole heck of a lot more!!





At they have every­thing you can hope for as far as learn­ing tools go for your chil­dren! They can learn while hav­ing fun!


I was sent the Toy­smith — Green Sci­ence — Solar Rover — 4M Sci­ence Kit  to review and it is awe­some!! You sim­ply build this cool rover using the kit parts pro­vided and an old pop can. Learn how sun­light is con­verted to energy! Detailed instruc­tion­sare included and very easy to fol­low. My 8 yr old nephew built this all by him­self! I was impressed!





“Build your own sun pow­ered vehi­cle from a soda can! Place your Solar Rover out­doors on a sunny day and watch it zip along. No bat­ter­ies required. The Solar Rover’s solar panel turns sun­light into elec­tric­ity that runs the motor. Recy­cle a soda can to make your solar rover unique. It’s a sci­ence project that’s green as well as fun!
Con­tains: 1 long and short sup­port arm, 1 sup­port arm top and base, 1 solar panel sup­port, 1 solar panel with wires, 1 chas­sis with rear axle, 1 axle, 4 wheels, 1 motor with wires and gear, 1 motor cover, 2 reflec­tors, 1 plas­tic cover, 1 inner and outer con­nec­tor, 2 ter­mi­nal caps 2 long screws and 3 short screw, nut and full instruc­tion book­let. For ages 8+.”
