Even though I do not home school my children, I am always looking for great projects for them to do especially since the summer is upon us and I'm trying to think of everything possible to keep them entertained so they won't get bored. Even though I know that it is bound to happen no matter how hard I try. Mindware has a huge selection of great activities, learning games, puzzles, books and so much more!
For our review today I received a RootVue Farm from MindWare.
Designed for maximum visibility as well as easy set up and care, the RootVue Farm comes with a self-watering base, scientifically formulated grow mix, carrot, radish and onion seed packets, growth chart, plant Identification labels and 6 teacher-tested experiments.
I really love the idea of this project. I can't really call it a toy because it's not. My oldest son loves to help me garden but the roots are one of those things you don't see while gardening. So he was highly interested in it. While we do sort of live in the city, this would be wonderful for kids that live in apartments or don't have a place to garden. I do sort of wish the base was made out of a different material besides Styrofoam.
Both of my kids were sort of fascinated with watching the seeds sprout and seeing the roots grow. Every day they both would go outside and ask if they were done yet.
Overall both of my kids and I love the Root Vue Farm. I think it's a fun project for both of the kids to do together and it's a great learning tool. The Root Vue farm retails for $34.95 and can be purchase at MindWare.com.
Thank you MindWare for letting us do a review of your Root Vue Farm! You can connect with MindWare on facebook and on twitter.
