Who would love this: Science & Geology lovers 

One of our favourite books is Magic Bus’s “Inside The Earth” where we get to learn about the wacky and unusual knowledge about rocks through an adventurous travel deep into the crust of earth. Mideer Toys sent us this Mining Heroes set for review recently. The innovative concept reminds me of this all-time favourite book - save that this time, the kids need to put on real hard-work to enjoy the fruits of knowledge! 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) Creative New Experience- We love the whole new experience of pretending to be a crew of geologists exploring the unknowns! This set comes with a blue chalk brick (made of non-toxic gypsum material according to information from Mideer), miniature tools including a wooden chisel, hammer, brush, magnifying glass and a black velvety pouch. Our team of scientists were all geared-up to dig out the 7 built-in gems. We had never tried this sort of activity before, so the kids were naturally excited to experience the brand new world of geology! 

(2) Patience, Patience, Patience! This toy is probably not for everyone; it’s a bit dusty, need loads of hard-work and sweat before you can enjoy the true gems! I was exhausted after quite many minutes of chiselling, hammering, and brushing. But the kids (oh, the KIDS, you gotta salute their energy!) were really determined to “get to the bottom of it”(literally). They knocked and dug and screamed at the top of their lungs “come on, DON’T give up!” in highly motivating energy. Each time a gemstone was unearthed, we had a round of cheers and celebratory high-fives. Lucky for us, all 7 gemstones were found at close proximity at the centre of brick, so we didn’t need to search too hard. This is a fantastic toy to train up our superpower of patience and perseverance! 

(3) 7 Gemstones- Obsidian, amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, fluorite, moonstone, and scoria. None of us are expert in rocks, but we love admiring the distinctive features of each of them - the slightly glittery one, the cool volcanic lava produce, the romantic pink, the mysterious purple. We love them all! 

(4) Storage Box & Bag- I love the sturdy box and the velvety drawstring bag for organised storage. 

Overall, we had a great time testing this out!
