The popular kits lets kids assume the role of an investigator, allowing them to develop their crime solving skills.
Thames & Kosmos UK has announced that its best-selling Master Detective Toolkit from the popular Three Detective series has arrived back in the company's warehouse.
Suitable for kids aged 8+, the toolkit lets young investigators learn how detectives use forensic science to answer questions, gather evidence and solve crimes. First, kids can set up their detective’s office and organise their tools, before engaging in exercises to hone their observation skills. Next, they'll learn how to secure a crime scene and, having gathered and documented evidence including fingerprints, footprints, tyre tracks, hair, counterfeit currency and soil samples, can then head back to the lab to learn about analysing it. Finally, kids can try their hand at deciphering codes, writing messages with invisible ink and communicating with secret symbols. As their detective skills develop, kids can have a go at solving the mock crime presented in the manual.
“This kit has been extremely popular over lockdown and demand has continued to be high, with our replenishment sadly taking longer than expected, due to Covid-19”, says Jo Drage, sales director at Thames & Kosmos. "Our Three Detective series remains a popular choice for parents and aunties looking for something a little bit different, and we are expecting a surge in sales in the run up to Christmas. Children (and adults) can develop their detective skills and become a world class sleuth with this quality kit, which has the replayability factor and is manufactured to the high standard you expect from a Thames & Kosmos product.”
The Master Detective Toolkit retails at £36. Contact the company on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
