We were invited to review a spy bag from the Netflix show ‘Project Mc2’ A programme which encourages girls (not limited to) with S.T.E.A.M subjects (Science,technology,engineering,art and maths).
The programme on Netflix is a spy and science mission programme with some strong girl characters heading off on adventures. Big A loved the series on Netflix and is a big fan of the show.
Marian Davis, MGA Entertainment Marketing Manager, said: “Project Mc2 was launched to inspire the next generation to pursue their interest in S.T.E.A.M subjects. With a popular Netflix show and more exciting products aligned with S.T.E.A.M launching in Spring, we hope to continue encouraging young girls and boys that Smart really is the New Cool!”
We were sent the ‘Project Mc2 Ultimate Spy Bag (RRP £24.99)’ They have also created the following range of products:
Project Mc2 Experiments with dolls
Project Mc2 H20 Nail Science Lab
Project Mc2 Crayon Makeup Science Kit
Project Mc2 A.D.I.S.N Journal
The description of the Ultimate spy bag is : Investigate in style with this amazing gadget, the Ultimate Spy Bag – as worn by Adrienne Attoms in the show. Opening up to reveal a forensic fingerprinting kit, the bag contains an air blower disguised as a perfume bottle, a magnifying glass hidden in a make up compact, a torch hidden in a nail polish bottle, test tubes, secret messages and much more.
Big A was really excited to receive the spy kit ‘Wow this is like the one they have on the show’. She was excited to get it opened and see what was inside. I was quite excited as a parent to discover fingerprints on surfaces…. and was kind of grossed out too!
Please take a look at Big A’s video to see what she thought:
Things we loved: • Stylish and appealing • Reusable • Batteries are already included and in place • Encourages interest in the science • Multi-functional
Things we didn’t love: •No pipette • Need to buy ingredients for the science experiments • Catch is hard to open • Need tape for the fingerprint element
Overall: Big A liked that we could reuse the kit over and over by trying new experiments from the ultimate spy book, it even has spaces to write/draw and make notes. We would definitely recommend this product at the recommended retail price of £24.99 as a great gift idea for any fan of Project Mc2.
