Platinum Toy!

The “I Dig It! Fossils” kit was the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio’s Platinum Award winner in 2018, and we think it's still a winner because fossils are really old anyway, and never go out of style. Unlike all the u-dig-’em-up fossil kits out there, this one features real fossils, in multiples. A color manual includes intros to fossils and paleontology, with instructions on making a grid and working slowly with the included metal-tip chisel, weighted hammer/pick and sponge. Fossils include snails and snail aggregate, stony coral, shark teeth and pre-amber resin. From Thames & Kosmos® and for ages 7+, especially those interested in how the pros do it.
