Sometimes it can be a struggle to get kids into the tub to scrub off a few layers of sediment. But there are ways to make bath time more appealing by adding dinosaurs. With this curious Archaeology Soap you child can learn a bit while on the hunt for the dinosaurs hidden inside!
Yeah, if you are like me, a stickler for details, you would think "Shouldn't that be Paleontology Soap?" Well, yes, it should. But nobody asked us about naming this product. Name aside, this is a fun idea. The soap is made up of different strata of "earth" and hidden within are two tiny plastic dinosaurs. You could end up with the cleanest kids in the 'hood as they work their way to Jurassic glory.
There is even a bit of pumice in the bottom layer to help with scrubbing and bentonite clay in the second layer for softening. This adds some real geology to the soap with a volcanic and a sedimentary layer. The bar is a 3 inch cube with 4 layers and 2 dinos. ThinkGeek claims that the soap is "dirt scented," but they also say that there is a hint of peppermint to the fragrance.
This is a great gift idea for kids who love dinosaurs, though it is no intended for children under six. It is also a fun "gag" gift idea for that hard-to-buy-for paleontologist or geologist out there. This handmade soap is definitely the unusual gift for that person who has everything. Chances are they won't have this.
