I love the theme of this set — women in science.
I applaud the effort, just want to see more reflection of the real world.
My granddaughter loaned me another doll and some more cabinets and tools. My daughter was blown away on how cool this set is. And this set has a lot of really neat and unique pieces that you won’t see in a lto of other sets. The box is nice and sleek, with a really cool hexagon molecule-like motif littered throughout the packaging.The back of the box features a better look at the scenes that you can create with the set and on the side, the three scientist minifigures of the set are displayed prominently. Lifting up the lid of the box, you’re greeted by the instruction manual and 3 polybags, each one numbered according to the order of which you build the different scenes. The instruction manual is top-notch and has a nice glossy and matte feel to it. The wording is simple and straight to the point which makes it easy for children to comprehend. Ellen has the most sciencey look out of her colleagues, sporting a traditional white lab coat which goes over a very stylish orange shirt. That said, great minifgure, underscored by a really useful and funny alternate expression.
I wonder what happens if you mix both reagents?
Tricia has a massive magnifying glass as her accessory, a useful tool to inspect fossils in further detail!
Unlike her other counterparts, she doesn’t have an alternate face or even back printing. Astronomer does indeed have an alternate face. Ellen’s workspace includes a bench where vials and beakers are stored on a slightly raised platform. Her bench has a few hidden secrets stored within the cabinets – firstly a compartment to store two clear mugs . It’s orderly, simple and clinical – exactly what you’d expect from a reputable lab where all sorts of exciting chemistry happens!
The build is nothing short of ingenious , packing a ridiculous amount of detail using some really clever techniques. The tail is particularly impressive as it looks exactly like a dinosaur tail. The prehistoric skeleton is held up by a wooden rod which is a more aesthetic feature since the dinosaur is perfectly capable of standing on its own two feet.
You can also detach the skeleton from the platform to allow it to roam around. This piece will also perhaps be useful to educate children with recognizing constellations in the night sky. Not included in the set is a giant celestial body for her to observe. The builds are nice and simple, which means that younger kids should have no problem assembling it.
I always do, with a silly picture of the set in action. That would surely bring a lot of cheer to fans who missed out. It sold out within a couple of hours and stayed sold out for a few weeks. Since the first release date, it’s been re-released twice, and again sold out within the hour both times. It got 10, 000 supporters in a couple of days!
It now takes pride of place on my main display shelf. First, there’s the chalkboard 4×4 plate with 4 studs . Chemist’s flasks , bottles , and a sextant are all available in this release too. The minifigures in this set are really great. All come with nice printed torsos, and all have reversible heads!
Inside the cupboard you have some mugs, and the drawers hold the syringes. On the bench top there are bottles, a jar and a ring-stand and clamp holding a chemical bottle with what looks like some chemicals in it. The drawcard of the set is the brick-built dinosaur. It looks really great, and encourages more dino building in the future!
Because the dino takes up the entire 8×8 plate, the minifigure and microscope are separate. Be careful not to lose the extra bone while it’s sitting on the microscope!
Paleontologist also carries a magnifying glass to help her studies. Many other sets include blue collar worker minifigures (construction, emergency services, transportation etc). It’s still available in secondary markets, but you’ll need to pay a bit more for it. This set gets 8 out of 10 little dino bones. It’s great to look at, has some interesting parts, and has a fairly good amount of playability, especially for a set of this size.

Help the paleontologist study the origin of dinosaurs with the magnifying glass, map the skies with the astronomer and her telescope and assist the chemist as she carries out experiments in her lab. There’s a whole world of exciting professions out there to explore – build and role play them to see if they suit you!
A fantastic way to acknowledge and encourage girls in science. Help the paleontologist study the origin of dinosaurs with the magnifying glass, map the skies with the astronomer and her telescope, and assist the chemist as she carries out experiments in her lab. This set also includes building instructions, as well as a booklet containing information about the creator and an introduction to each of the professions featured in the set. There’s a whole world of exciting professions out there to explore – build and role play them to see if they suit you!
In the future, they will go to my daughter to show her that women truly can work in any field of interest. The three models (paleontology, chemistry, and astronomy) can be used independently. She has them distributed about her office. There’s a telescope and star chart, dino bones and magnifying glass, and a chemistry set. The booklet that accompanies the set is put together pretty well. On top of that, she’s a kid so having cool/fun stuff (like the dino skeleton) is simply a good time. Note that each set is fairly small in size, as in, polybag size.
