Elemental, My Dear

Scientists, historians and collectors unite! The Elements Vault is a comprehensive, interactive book that's all things atomic. You can learn about each element based on the nine major periodic categories (alkali metals, the alkali earth metals, the transition metals, the nonmetals, the metalloids, the halogens, the noble gases, the actinides, and the lanthanides) or by where each element falls on the light spectrum with a stunning 20" L x 10" W rainbow poster. Suitable for ages 10 up to adults, the Element Vault includes beautiful pictures, real element samples and tons of removable copies of historical documents that bring new insight into the chemical world. Ever wonder why 7-UP would sell a lithium-laced soda? Want to read a letter Einstein wrote to FDR? Now you Hafnium the chance! Made in China.

We're intrigued by this clever kit! We love that it's a great introduction to science for kids, and a fun refresher for adults. We also love that it includes actual samples of real elements, removable documents, and a color poster. Would you collect elements with this interactive book?

Thanks for asking, Sarah. We left that information out by mistake. The Elements Vault is made in China. We'll update the product story.

I love anything that makes learning fun. This seems to provide some explanation and interest to Elements that was not presented when I was a kid. I would love this as a kid, and maybe even now as an adult! I bet I would learn a lot!

Vote: Thumbs down!

This would be great if it wasn't made in China.

As someone who wants to homeschool her children, this is something I'd really like to add to my home library.

Anything that combines science and art is awesome!


Cool science geek gift.

Why can't it be made in the USA?

Vote: Thumbs up!

A great idea! I would buy this, but can I trust it because it was made in China? Are we capable of making anything in the USA? Maybe the Elements Vault will inspire some new, brilliant scientists. Every kid should have one. Oh, that's right, but we don't have any money in our school budgets anymore.

This looks great, but price might be an issue. How much would it cost? I home school, so we only have one income.
