Founded in 2001 by Jane Holdsworth, Thames & Kosmos was established with the mission of improving informal science education with hands-on products for kids. Since then, with Holdsworth's son Ted McGuire at the helm, the Rhode Island-based brand has won countless awards for its innovative science kits. Covering everything from chemistry and physicals to astronomy and biology, Thames & Kosmos makes it easy—and fun—to continue your kids' science education outside of the classroom.
Send them back to the classroom in style: This array of cool gear has all their favorites, from refined separates and cute dresses to comfy denim and of-the-moment footwear. And for the curious tots, we've got cool science kits, which tackle everything from astronomy to experiments with soap bubbles.
Soap bubble experiments. Makeshift labs. DNA experiments. Tots still convinced that science is boring are about to change their minds—this award-winning brand's innovative science kits take the hands-on approach when it comes to teaching little ones—and perhaps their parents, too—everything from astronomy to chemistry.
It's hard to play favorites when it comes to our favorite brands for kids, but our children's buyers have risen to the challenge with this must-have array. Here, you'll find their top picks from all the amazing back-to-school finds they've pulled together: colorful backpacks, lunch boxes, and art supplies from Dakine, Inntrax, Goodbyn, and others.
Science-minded kids will have great chemistry with the learning labs and experiments on display here. Volcano kits, microscopes, science sets, and more will help your whiz kid learn, and they'll provide hours of weekend and after-school fun.
