Calling All Scientists
I am finally using my American Girl paper doll backdrop.
Set #1: A disecting kit complete with a frog. The tool on the far right is a scalpel.
Set #2: Microscope with 2 lenses, immersion oil and a leaf.
Set #3: Bunson burner set
Set #4: Test tubes, test tube stand, a beaker and an Erlenmeyer flask.
Set #5: Electric current tester
All the parts are separate.
Set #6: Chemistry glassware with a mortar and pestle, a flat bottom boiling flask, a regular flask, and a graduated cylinder.
Set #7: An anatomy set. The brown thing is actually the stand for the figure. All the organs can fit inside the model.
Set #8: Another chemistry set. Comes with a beaker, an alcohol burner, a metal tripod stand, and a wire gauze.
Set #9: A roberval balance, a couple of calibrated weights and a set of tweezers. The two white plates are removable.
Set #10: Starch experiment set that comes iodine, a pipette, two petri dishes, a book, and a specimen.
Again, the background is from one of my American Girl paper doll books.
In the last post, Leandra Holland made a great suggestion to get more room in the boy's bedroom. She sent me a picture of car beds on a car lift. Danielle wasn't too keen on the design, but she and Rod were able to come up with a simpler design. Rod quickly built it and they are pleased as punch. Thanks Leandra!!! You are a lifesaver. I never would have thought of this type of design and I didn't really want to drill holes in the cars to turn them into bunk beds. It's still not as safe as Danielle would like, but they had a stern conversation with the boys about not jumping from the platform.
Julian is standing near the ladder to his bed. Not sure what color to paint the ladder, yet. Now there is room for the dresser and a few other things. The room looks quite busy at the moment. I'm hoping it won't be that way once all the decorations and accessories are put in the room.
