We have been sent this Science Mad Rock Tumbler to try. They are aimed at children aged 9-12 and the recommended retail price is £39.99. It is currently on offer for £29.99.
The box included the tumbler and three different types of rock. There is also some rock polishing powder. If you follow me on Instagram – @unicornpuffsandrainbows you will see we love going to the beach and looking for seaglass so we were intrigued about this.
I liked that it included everything we needed with really clear instructions. There were a couple of keyring and fixings to put the rocks into rings as well which was a lovely addition. The tumbler worked really well and the rocks were lovely afterwards.
It did take along time – initially we had the tumbler in the house but it is very loud and a bit annoying so we soon moved it to the garage. If you don’t have a power point in the garage I don’t know if I would recommend it as the noise for three days is not ideal.
There are a couple of steps in between and you have to check the rocks and change the water over making it lots of fun and I liked this step. There was also a timer which was nice as it was out of sight it was easy to forget.
I really enjoyed the tumbler and so did N.
