Radar has a list of the top worst toys of all time, but I think a couple of them are actually the best… My favorite is the Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab, it just sold for almost $8k at an auction too!

  1. I had something similar- at least it strongly resembled part of the Glbert kit. It was a Wilson diffusion cloud chamber that came with a tiny alpha source. Maybe it was another Gilbert kit? I also had the Mattel science kits- what a great set of toys they were!

    There aren’t many science toys today that let a kid really explore science.
