What it is:
A garden kit that gives kids an above-ground and below-ground view of growing plants.
Why we love it:
What happens below when plants grow? Young gardeners can watch nature happen with the Root-Vue Farm kit. As vegetables grow from seed to harvest, children get an underground view of the root systems, learn about photosynthesis, and can conduct experiments throughout the growth cycle. Roots are clearly visible through a break-resistant acrylic window set in a styrene body.
The self-watering kit contains everything needed, including carrot, radish, and onion seeds, special soil wafers, and instructions. Winner of Parents' Choice, Dr. Toy, and Oppenheim Awards.
Where to get it:
for a green-thumb $23.95.
