Have Fun with Science at TAOS Gifts


UFO, Flashing spinning top classic toy at TAOS Gifts
Early intro to Physics
Little explorers and enquiring minds will love our scientific toys at TAOS Gifts.

Getting an early grasp on science is easy and fun with classic tools and toys, without even realising, the youngest children can get a grip on gravity and the forces of energy around us with the classic retro toy, the Spinning Top.

How long can you keep it spinning for?

Turn the lights down low and enjoy the endless patterns of colour as the spinning top flashes while it spins.

Available in various colours they are fun small gifts to keep them occupied and are also ideal party bag or pass the parcel gifts, they are popular with children and adults of all ages.

Bring their world a little closer with our party bag gift size pocket-size mini telescopes. They may be small in size but they are big on vision.

Just 5cm long they easily fit in their pocket or bag and open up a whole new close up view of the world.

Ideal for young Bird spotters, Botanists, Astronomers, Naturalists and other Scientists. Take a closer look at everything around you from an Ant to the Moon. Great fun for budding scientific minds.

Bug Viewer, creepy crawly insect viewing pot, magnifier educational gift
Take a closer look at the Monsters and Beasties in your Garden

Wildlife exploration is possible even if in the smallest garden, take little ones on a wildlife trail right on your doorstep.

There are fights for survival, birth life and death cycles happening all the time.

There’s no need to fear the bugs and beasties that share your living space, just take a closer look at them as understanding helps conquer fear.

Arachnophobes can study their Nemesis at leisure and in safety with the double lens Bug Viewer, gently catch the study subject in the viewing pot and use one or both of the 2 lenses for closer inspection.

The basic lens gives you double magnification and the flip down lens magnifies by 4. This is enough magnification to give you a much closer look at the bugs, beasties and creepy crawlies that live nearby, and once you understand their purpose, lifestyle, habitat and eating habits they are simply not so scary any more!

Just remeber not to keep them in there too long and to gently release them where you found them once you have finished studying them.

Wooden Animal compass, exploration for beginners at TAOS Gifts
Where in the world are you?

 

 

 

Pirates of the Caribbean fans will know Captain Jack Sparrow would not be without his essential compass, even if his didn’t appear to work it was always his most essential tool and loved possession.

At TAOS Gifts we have fully working Animal Compasses in bright and friendly wooden animal shapes to help guide your way.

Unlike Captain Jacks our will point in the right direction enabling you to teach Children about where we are in the world, our place in the Universe, how the Earth Spins, the orbits of the Earth, Sun and the Moon and how Sailors (and Pirates of course) could navigate the Seas by following the Stars.
