Spark Bubble Thoughts and Ideas:

"This is a special set containing many pieces and is great as a present. It is made by 'Learning Resources', the educational toy company who create many products for classrooms and daycare settings. Although 'Learning Resources' recommends this set for children aged 5 years+, we think children aged 3+ would enjoy the set and benefit from it. Of course younger children would need an adult to help them read and organise the experiments, but they could still begin to understand the principles of floating and sinking, displacement etc.

This STEM bathtub set is a fantastic way to introduce children to scientific theories in a fun, playful way. The pieces in it are also fun toys that can then be amalgamated into regular bath toys later so children can play with the submarine and raft again and again once they have tried all the different experiments."
