SmartLab Toys Review

Are you looking for fun ways to keep your kids excited about learning this summer? SmartLab Toys offers an excellent selection of entertaining and educational toys that continue to inspire my own children to get outside and enjoy nature.

We have been having a blast using our new Indoor-Outdoor Microscope which magnifies objects to 40X their normal size. Of course, the first thing my children wanted to look at is all the bugs in our back yard. What makes this microscope set such a useful toy is that it can easily be attached to a lanyard and taken outdoors for lots of exploration. It is the perfect size for small hands and it is very easy to use. It even comes with a stand to use it indoors and four prepared slides. My son loves examining the fruit fly slide and it has really inspired him to learn about insects. Even I was fascinated by examining a hair, newspaper and even a carpet fiber up close under the microscope. The accessories are useful and include tweezers, two vials with lids, an eye dropper, carrying case and blank slides. There have been several evenings that I found my kids under the covers with a flashlight pouring over the handy informational book that examines all sorts of things that can be magnified. All three of my children have asked to use their Indoor-Outdoor Microscope from SmartLab Toys every single day and have had hours of enjoyment so far. This fun and educational toy is only $19.99 which is an excellent value in my opinion and can be purchased in the online SmartLab store, at Amazon or in select stores.

There are so many fun summer outdoor toys and activities available at SmartLab Toys. My kids have been saving up their allowance to purchase the Bug Playground to house their favorite creepy crawlers in style.

I also like the Remote Control Rocket which my son received as a gift from his aunt for his birthday and has been a favorite outdoor toy. We even used this toy in our home school as a science experiment project and I let them mix the “rocket fuel” of baking soda and vinegar by themselves with my supervision.
