What are Beaker Creatures?

After travelling through space from their tiny distant planets, the Beaker Creatures have landed on Earth in search of science adventures!

Within each mysterious Reactor Pod lurks tiny travellers from five distant planets who’ve come to Earth in search of learning fun. There are 35 collectible Creatures to collect including 5 super rare gold Creatures.

Children will love extracting them from their Reactor pods, identifying them with the classification card and exploring their worlds with fun facts and cool experiments.

Beaker Creatures sets double as working lab sets, complete with included science experiments like alien slime time that encourage hands-on learning.

What Our Testers Thought

Caroline, her daughter Grace (8) and her son Fionn (5) tested Beaker Creatures for us at their home. Here’s what they had to say:

“There was great excitement when the Beaker Creatures box arrived. We had a green and red pod so the kids were happy with the colours! The extraction process is great, very visually impressive and the kids loved how the liquid bubbled over the top on each of them. It took a few minutes for the creature to reveal itself so while we waited we spoke about the poster and all the different types of Beaker Creatures you could collect.

The pods are well wrapped up and sealed so parents will need to help kids to get things together initially but that made it even more of a learning experience for them as they had lots of questions and it got me involved.

I like that you can use the set beyond extraction of the creatures. It is a nice and appealing way to bring science to the kids.” Caroline

“The creatures are cool & I loved mixing colours” Grace (8)

“I loved the fizzy bubbles everywhere” Fionn (5)

Final Verdict

“Great way to introduce STEM to little people”
