Pint Size Social Publisher Meredith Levy shares her list of perfect gifts for the little scientist in your life.


Mr Wizard DVD, Volume 1

Before Sid and Bill Nye, Mr. Wizard was the go-to Science guy. These DVDS are from his show from the 50’s and 60’s.




We have yet to meet a kids who isn’t obsessed with these. A bit pricey, but last for years.



A Magnificent Manicure Kit

Perfect for the smarty-pants girl who loves to learn (and be pampered).



Astronaut Ice-Cream

Great for a little understanding of what the Astronauts go through on their expeditions.



Molecular Modeling Kit

Build inorganic and organic models with easy to use pieces.



Nerdy Baby ABC’s and 123’s

For the budding scientist, a complete set of brainiac flashcards.



Smithsonian Crystal Growing Kit

Such a great learning tool that doesn’t even seem like one. Grows crystals to at least 3 inches.



The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science

64 Daring Experiments for Young Scientists – Kids will love conducting these experiments as much as you will love learning about them (with them!)



Space Shuttle Thermal Tile

The exact material made in the late 1970’s for the Space Shuttle Columbia.



Star Kit

Nothing beats a gift from the International Star registry- a star named after something or someone special.

    I love astronaut ice cream. Honest and true. I buy it every time we go to the air & space museum in DC.

    Oh and those Mr. Wizard DVD’s? Going at the top of our Christmas list.

    I laughed at the idea of “Totally Irresponsible Science”. What kid wouldn’t be attracted by that?
