Thames & Kosmos science kits are now available to UK retail.

Shop owners can win the free stock by following @thamesandkosmos on Twitter and collecting competition clues between now and Toy Fair.

As part of its Toy Fair presence Thames & Kosmos will have its very own mad scientist, Profesor Probenius, on the stand to meet the UK toy trade.

There is an extensive range of kits available in 12 categories including chemistry, physics and alternative energy, with price points starting at around £9.99 to £159.99

The Chem 1000, with an RRP of £44.99, is expected to be a Christmas best seller and includes everything needed to conduct over 125 different experiments - a couple of examples include making water flow up-hill and melting chocolate with sunlight.

Thames & Kosmos director Joanna Drage said: “We are extremely excited about starting on the road to becoming a key player in the UK and feel that our chemistry set range in particular meets a specific need in the science and educational market.

“Children are sponges; they want to learn and absorb new information and sets like these make this process fun and engaging. We also feel that it’s really exciting to have such a wide range of toys with unisex appeal – it’s our aim to make science fun again."

Stock is available from within the UK with free delivery within 48 hours. The minimum order value is £500.00.
