Review of the Master Detective Tool Kit

4d92882f8c6ded178447ccf09c8f4da0.jpgProduct Information:

For those seriously committed to their surveillance work, the Master Detective Toolkit (RRP £36 and for age 8+) also sold through Smyths, will keep them entertained all summer long. In this sturdy black briefcase of investigative tools, there’s everything you need to learn about how real detectives use forensic science to answer questions, gather evidence, and solve crimes. It also allows users to experiment with the equipment and techniques used by detectives to develop their own observation and problem-solving skills.

Simply open the briefcase and lift out the tools for a pop-up detective office! The kit challenges kids with different exercises designed to hone observation skills.  The young detectives can then move on to securing a crime scene and gathering and documenting evidence including fingerprints, footprints, and tyre tracks. With evidence such as hair and fibres, counterfeit currency and soil samples in hand, it's then time to head back to the lab to learn about analysing it. Finally, this brimming kit lets the user try their hand at deciphering codes, writing messages with invisible ink, and communicating with secret symbols. As detective skills develop over the summer, they can then be used to solve the mock crimes presented in the enclosed manual – a 32-page full-colour experiment book that guide your investigations with rich illustrations and step-by-step instructions.

The Master Detective Kit suitable for age 8+ and priced RRP £36 will be available now at Smythstoys.com/uk, Smyths stores nationwide.

Review:

This is a great rainy day activity (can also be used outside) but in this uncertain summer weather we have, it is very handy to have in the cupboard as it certainly kept my 8 year old entertained for some time, who was very excited to get it opened up to see what was inside, there were even a few things in there that my 4 year old could help with.

It’s designed to stretch a child’s imagination and they can really get into the role of becoming a detective, there were so many different things to choose to do, we didn’t know where to start but it came with a very handy book that explained what all the equipment was and how to use it and even had scenarios set up that you had to try and solve which I thought was a good added bonus.

It all comes in a briefcase which already installs the idea of being a detective, we unclipped it and began to set up our detective’s office and organise our tools.   We explored around the house to see what evidence we could gather and began to analyse it, his favourite part of the tool kit was writing secret coded messages in invisible ink and getting us to try and read them.  I loved the fact that he was learning real science whilst being able to role play the different situations.

I would definitely recommend this tool kit to others it was great to be able to do some activities together that didn’t involve minecraft
