Getting kids to take their showers, and getting them to pay attention to sciencey stuff can be two of most common challenges of raising them. At least, we think so… we have no idea about raising kids. But this Archaeology Soap can at least add a bit of a twist to a child’s normal bath time routine. It features three layers, the bottommost containing pumice stone, and the middle one bentonite. More importantly, each soap has two plastic dinosaurs embedded, for your child to discover as he gets clean. It might spark a conversation, which is all you should need to steer his young impressionable mind towards loftier interests than just playing Pokemon, or whatever it is kids play these days. It’s $17 from Thinkgeek.
