If you're thinking this isn't for young children - my 7 year old and 10 year old were absolutely entranced. It's chemistry - but it's magically entertaining!

Thank you Royal Institution - what a lovely Christmas present to everyone!

We have recorded them for DS2 as he's really into Chemistry. One of his favourite presents for his last birthday was a top trumps game of the elements.
