The Human Body is Art and Science
The study of the human body can be a very enlightening and, thereby, a very rewarding experience for a little boy.
This toy will help teach your little boy about our bodies and how things work together. Children from four to eleven can benefit. It will spark many discussions from why things are a certain way to why we don't look the way some of the pictures do when they are showing our insides. You can easily prepare your little boy for a further study of the human body by using this toy.
You Explore It: Human Body" by Lucille M. Kayes is a science kit which includes a book and a model of the human body along with tweezers and forceps to remove the body parts. This kit looked so neat that we couldn't wait to get it on our site!
The book is 33-pages long and has sections about cells, the mouth, stomach and intestines, kidneys and bladder, the diaphragm, heart, lungs, skin, muscles, bone and brain. Obviously it doesn't go into depth on any body part but the author does provide interesting and sometimes funny facts. The book also includes instructions for "dissecting" the model and for putting it back together.
The kit includes a 13-inch tall model of the human body. There are 21 removable body parts including bones, muscles and organs. The organs are soft and squishy and fun to play with. Your little boy can pretend you are a surgeon and remove the parts with the included forceps and tweezers and it is a nice model to display on a bookshelf.
