Do you have a kid on your list that loves science? We have some great gift ideas for you no matter what age your science lover is!
Do you have a kiddo that is curious about their body? This is exactly what you need for them! They can check out parts of the body and hold some in their hands. The insides are actually squishy, not slimy at all. For your preschoolers, this is a great way to explain some of those “why” questions that come up. If you have older ones, they can use the body as a lesson and really explore on their own.
Complete with removable squishy vital organs as well as representative skeletal, vascular and muscular systems, kids explore the complex inner workings of the human body and literally see how they all go together! This Squishy Human Body includes a 12-inch plastic human body model, nine removable squishy vital organs, skeletal, vascular and muscular systems, forceps and tweezers, a tray to organize your organs, and a 32-page fully illustrated book.
