Nice job, Kiwico. Every time I do a fossil dig kit with the kid, I swear it will be different the next time. And this time it actually was: real wood tools big enough for small hands (instead of cheap plastic), rubber fossil bones (instead of easily breakable plastic), and a chart. Five year old was able to do it quasi-independently without getting frustrated. Up to Kiwi’s usual excellent quality.
