When I was 9 I visited my cousins to discover that they actually owned the Barbie Perfume Factory that I had coveted for months. We sat together all one gloppy afternoon concocting our own specialized scents. It was almost all that I hoped it would be. I say almost because even my young nose could tell that the raw materials were cut-rate fakes. This kit from Thames & Kosmos promises today's girls all of the same joy PLUS a finished product they (and you) won't mind wearing. Ages 10+

With an energy crisis building, teaching your kids about sustainable power now is likely to be good for their brain, their wallet and their future in general. This kit from Thames & Kosmos engages children in hands on learning about heat and light energy from the sun, wind energy and electrochemical reactions and lets them see how these concepts can be used to power a house-- and the hot water heater, solar cooker, working greenhouse and rice cooker that are also part of this whopper of a kit (there's more!). Maybe a few years down the road they'll be installing solar panels on your roof. Ages 12+

These would make great party activities, too since they come with 6 ea. or 6 designs. Ages 4-6.
