As it’s Halloween tomorrow I thought I’d bring you all something a little gruesome, at least for the squeamish among you anyway. Here is a rather squishy body.
The kit comes with a model skeleton which is encased in a tough plastic outer body, almost like skin. Inside the skeleton are various squidgy body parts.
These body parts are all removable and the skeleton can be removed from the outer skin. The parts all resemble the major organs which are of course required to keep us alive and have various functions and also 12 plastic bones and muscles. The idea is to take everything out of the skeleton and then build it back up putting the correct squishy parts in the correct place. The kit also includes tweezers and forceps.
This is aimed towards older children and teens and I had a bit of a play around with it too. Unless your a doctor you probably have no idea where each bit goes but not to worry as a body parts organiser is included along with a full guide on how to put the body together.
There is also a really useful book included. This book describes with detail the roles of all the organs used with the body kit and could be very useful for biology homework. The skeleton body once assembled actually reminds me of some figures we had at school in our science labs.
There is even a stand to place the model on. Ryan loves science and loves taking this apart and putting it together. Jordanna isn’t too keen on it just yet and says she doesn’t like the feel of the squishy organs. In Ryan’s room it will happily stay then for the time being.
The age guide for the squishy human body is 8 and over.
