Okay...bear with me y'all, as I have found something that I want to talk about....uh oh. I am a sucker for educational toys, books and so forth, and so when Workman Publishing sent me the Potato Chip Science Book & Stuff, I was more than a little excited. Let me tell you why!
The author of the book is Allen Kurzweil and his son Max and together they have formulated a kit that is "high in saturated facts" as they so put it...and that's just an understatement. This is not just a book but an EXPERIENCE that you and your child will not soon forget! Have you ever heard the saying that "presentation is everything"....well let me tell ya, these guys must have received an A+ in design with this product!
The Potato Chip Science Book & Stuff comes to you like a loaded baked potato (which, I have a delicious recipe for such if you find yourself making a loaded baked potato soup or potato salad with all the leftover spuds), jammed packed with fun and exciting materials to use toward 29 experiments....err...I mean, snacktivities! The kit and all its contents arrive in a (take a wild guess) ....Potato Chip bag! How clever and cute!! This bag is cleverly designed and illustrated on its own, but wait until you see what's inside!!!
What is all of that you say? Well...let's see:
- 96 page book of step-by-step instructions
- digital sound clip
- Propulsion pipe

- 6 optical stickers
- 6 chip lids

- packing "chips" (don't worry they have a purpose too, everything in the kit does, including the....)
- potato chip bag
