Green Science’s Potato Clock

So what does a Cosmo Boy do when Mom says he has to get off the computer (minecraft) and his sister, Curious Girl, is still sleeping after fighting a fever last night? Dig through the closet looking for something…. and…. a potato clock!!

I haven’t done reviews of products here before, but this morning Cosmo Boy had so much fun with Green Science’s Potato Clock, I just had to share.

It is not complicated and did not lend itself to concentration or frustration putting it together (what I usually look for in a toy), but it was fun and he did it on his own. He was able to get the clock to work using 2 potatoes and his face lit up!

Now we can try other fruits and even soda (we’ll have to buy some).

And he’s off… now he’s trying to make a clock with gears from Discovery Kids, but it is missing some pieces so he will have to be ingenious.
