My Thoughts

My daughter thinks this is one of the coolest toys she's tried out yet. It's the perfect girly spy kit. It's jam packed with fun spy gear disguised as make up. The nail polish opens up to reveal a working flashlight. The compact has a hidden magnifying glass. The powder inside actually allows you to take real fingerprints with the help of the perfume bottle which blows away the extra power. The lipstick ejects so you can shoot out secret messages. There is even a set of test tubes to  help test all the evidence after it's collected. For extra fun, you can download the Project Mc2 app for lots more science fun.

This is such a great toy that really encourages imaginative play, and teaches kids a little bit about forensics in the process. My daughter has been fingerprinting the whole family. The case is a great bonus. It's sturdy, and it keeps all the pieces together in one place. There are also lots of little cubby holes to help store more items.
