Watch It Grow Plant Viewer
Great for teaching science lesson
First four came damaged but OT customer service was great. Replaced them with no issues. Kids really enjoyed seeing the plants grow, roots and all. We planted radish, carrots, and onion to see how they grow under the ground. Radish were the only ones that actually grew well enough to see. It was funny to see that they grew flat since there is only so much room for them. Great for a science lesson about roots and plants.

If you teach any child up to 3rd grade, this is a fabulous addition to your science center. I've planted many different things over the years and it is always fascinating to the children to watch the roots emerge. One year a child suggested we mark the growth with tape, and we charted the growth by week to see when the plants grew faster and slower.
I've seen this product elsewhere for considerably more money, so it is perpetually on my "Back to school supplies list" from O.T.!

Cheap and damaged
I thought this would be a fun Christmas present for my daughter to actually see the root systems of various plants. Received the first one damaged--a crack on one side and banged corner on the opposite top. Since I thought 8.99 was a little expensive for this cheap plastic, I thought I deserved one that wasn't damaged. Customer service was VERY friendly and offered various ways of remedying the situation. I chose a replacement since I really thought my daughter would enjoy it. Got the second one yesterday--damaged in the exact same two places. I will be calling customer service tomorrow and asking for one of the other options!

Happy for the help
I purchased enough of these plant viewers for children to take home with them in a science class I led. When I was short two by my own miscounting, customer service was extremely helpful and quick to act to help me. After I handed out the items we realized one was cracked behind the sticker and again they were extremely helpful and accomodating.
