Geekstronaut figures tend to your space farm while it grows. MSRP $19.95

I recevied complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- While this looks exciting and very cool, I was not impressed with the skill level it takes to do this kit.   You actually need a lot more then what is provided and let me just tell you how hard it is to find cactus soil, really I am not even sure what that is. 

  I was super excited to share this with my family and we all sat down opened the box got everything out and I started to read the booklet. Right about the this is for parents section I became increasingly aggravated.  The family was super disappointed and this missed its mark of fun all together.   We actually just put it back in the box for a day when everyone can get to the store and then have hours to do.  

I am not sure at all why the brand thought this was going to be a huge success and maybe there are families that have absolutely nothing to do for half the day and can drive out to other stores in order to use this kit.   My older teens asked if they could just plant the seeds in a planter and call it a day so really the whole concept was just lost.
