Gummy Candy Lab Review and MORE Great Gift Ideas for Kids + Giveaway
It’s that time of year! I’m just starting to roll out my Holiday Gift Guide suggestions and I’ll also be including a lot of giveaways so that not only can you get great gift ideas for kids gift inspiration from some of these reviews and product shares, but you can also have a chance to win some of them as well!
Today’s post is a wonderful round up of toys that should be perfect for any budget, and will definitely be popular with creative kids who love to use their imagination for creative play. I’ve even got a few suggestions that the adult kids will enjoy!
We were most excited to check out the Rainbow Gummy Candy Lab. This one is exciting (according to my 12 year old) for two reasons. One, she loves to create things. Two, it’s CANDY!!
Unicorns, clouds, and rainbows … oh my! Make your own delicious, fun gummy shapes using a gelatin mixture: Pour it into the included mold and concoct a spectrum of flavors and colors to personalize your unicorn, cloud, and rainbow-shaped gummy creations. You can even add citric acid to make sour gummies. Bonus: Learn about the scientific properties of natural polymers as you cook up these delicious treats! This kit includes all the food ingredients needed for a rainbow-gummy good time. MSRP: $19.95 Age: 6 & UP
We love both the price point and the large variety of shapes, colors and flavors you can make. As a mom, I really appreciate the STEM angle, because anytime she’s playing and learning that same time – that’s a win in my book!
From start to finish, this was such a fun activity and my daughter was easily able to follow all directions to create gummy candies all on her own. In fact, she borrowed my camera to document the process and I was pretty impressed with how it all came together:
How fun are those!? So not only did my daughter enjoy making them, but this Rainbow Gummy Candy Lab comes with everything she needs to package them and give them as gifts!
We’ve always enjoyed products like this Rainbow Gummy Candy lab, so fun and a great way to inspire kids to create!

As a lead chemist in your own out-of-this-world laboratory, it’s your job to identify UFOs — Unidentified Funky Oozes!

Cut a brain shape out of the slime, stamp it with an alien head, and add eyes to it! Explore your slimes’ make-up and properties — like their different colors, glittery components, and glowing and color-changing effects — and then use your findings to correctly identify the different slimes.

Fun Party Game … Escape Room in a Box!
EXIT: The Game is a series of party games for up to four players that offers a unique, unforgettable gaming experience. These games allow you to bring the excitement, intensity, and team spirit of an escape room to your living room. In each EXIT game, your team starts out locked in an imaginary room or trapped somewhere. You must solve a series of riddles and puzzles in order to unlock doors and reveal new riddles. The clock is ticking: You must solve all of the puzzles as fast as you can because the faster your team escapes the room and the fewer hints you use along the way, the more points you earn. Can you crack the codes and manage to escape the room? MSRP: $14.95 Ages 12 & UP
