Explore Anatomically Correct Models of the Skull and Body
This package contains two anatomically correct models for kids to dissect and explore. Our testers found that the model of the human skull was a challenge to assemble, so kids may need help from an adult to build it. The Human Body Model didn’t require any assembly and is ready to dissect straight out of the box.
Activity Cards and Booklet Teach Science Facts
The fold-up Organ-izer chart keeps track of the dissected body parts as you explore and makes it easier to put the model back together when you’re done. The included 24-page book is a colorful and easy-to-read tour of the wonders of the human brain with fun facts, activities, and quizzes.
The 10 activity cards explain operations you can do on the anatomically correct model with the included surgical tools as well as experiments that use common household items. Each card contains information about an organ, and some include colorful pictures of the real thing. The written materials present detailed scientific information in a way that is easy for kids to understand and interesting and informative for adults.
Bones, Nerves, and Eyeballs Glow in the Dark
Turn off the lights to see the Human Body’s nerves and skeleton glow in the dark. The same eerie effect can be seen with the skull and its squishy eyeballs.
Dissect with Realistic, Safe Surgical Tools
With Squishy Science from Head to Toe, your child can be a surgeon. The plastic surgical tools are kid-safe and are modeled after their real-life equivalent. Our testers found the plastic scalpel was sharper than the other tools but still blunt enough that it would be safe for kids eight and up.
What’s in the Box
12-inch plastic human body model with stand, nine removable squishy organs, 12 plastic bones and muscles, Organ-izer poster, eight brain pieces, two squishy eyeballs, eight-piece skull model with base, four vertebrae pieces with spinal cord, rubber band, forceps, scalpel, tweezers, 10 activity cards, 24-page book, and instruction sheet.
