My 6-year-old, Aurelia is utterly obsessed with Ryan and his brand, Ryan’s World. In fact, Aurelia (like millions of other children) has ambitions of becoming a Youtuber herself! (You can check out our Youtube channel here and perhaps help Aurelia in achieving this ambition).
Since she’s such a huge fan, naturally Ryan’s World toys and games featured on Aurelia’s Christmas list. I am always rather dubious about buying her ‘fad’ toys. The way she flits from craze to craze makes me worried I’d be wasting my money on toys that she’ll be bored with soon after purchase. However, the Ryan’s World craze has stayed with her for a while now.
Ryan’s World Cool Chemistry
Coupled with her love for all things Ryan … and his world, Aurelia has a keen interest in science. She always comes home telling me about her science lessons in school – simple experiments but they have captured her attention.
When I saw the Ryan’s World Cool Chemistry set, I knew she’d love it! I bought it from ‘The Entertainer‘ for £12.50. This wasn’t a bad price. I have bought Aurelia lots of science type kits before and these cost around £10.00 – £15.00.
What’s in the Ryan’s World Cool Chemistry set?
Aurelia was a little disappointed not to get the three test tubes and stand which are featured on the box. But never mind, she was just happy to have her Ryan’s world toy!
Aurelia put on her goggles with excitement as well as the gloves. The kit comes with all the things required to perform a variety of experiments along with an instruction booklet. The booklet is rather useful, not only does it give you a step-by-step guide to performing the experiments, but also explains the purpose of the experiment. E.g. what the results should be and what we can learn from this.
Firstly, Aurelia and I conducted the ‘tea’ experiment. This is a rather simple experiment, nevertheless, it seeks to explain how tea works and how molecules are separated.
As per the instructions, Aurelia placed the filter paper into the funnel. She then poured the contents of the teabag into the funnel and then, holding the funnel over the test tube, poured water into the filter and awaited the results.
A number of experiments in the set use red food colouring (provided). Firstly, we filled 2 beakers – one with cold water and the other with hot water. The purpose of this experiment is to see how the food colouring reacts in two different water temperatures. Aurelia enjoyed watching the colours move through the water.
Aurelia is excited to conduct the rest of her experiments, like the little scientist she is!
Aurelia loved playing with this little set. The items were of good quality and the kit contains all you need to conduct the experiments. Aurelia loved the goggles and gloves (which she kept on for hours after!) We have some more Ryan’s World toys to play with so keep a lookout for some more reviews!
