Science & education toys for kids: Uncle Milton

Boot Camp feature for Friday, December 16, 2011

Science and education toys for kids.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Uncle Milton Industries has specialized in educational and science toys for years and this year,  Marketing Director Dave Malacrida says, they’ve taken the concept of an ant farm and blended it with a projector of sorts.  The Ant Farm Revolution…

“Which is kind of an ant farm meets a Lava Lamp.  It’s the first 360 degree ant farm where ants dig 3D tunnels through this nutrient gel.  The ants here have been working on this one for about ten days now.  And now what’s real fun is when you turn out the lights in your room, you project the ants on your ceiling.”

Don’t worry mom, they’re only shadows.  If that sounds too creepy, Uncle Milton also has Fireworks Light Show, complete with sound effects and a 3D Star Theatre.   Pricing is typically under thirty dollars.   You can find us, with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
