Uncle Milton Marvel Science Arc Reactor  Lab

Way back when in February 2012 MUReview was lucky enough to find our way to the Uncle Milton booth at Toy Fair in New York City.  It looks like some of the incredible stuff that they showed us is about to land on store shelves and we are getting an awesome first look at the Marvel Science Arc Reactor Lab.

The Good:

  • Clever puzzle based interaction in a very kid friendly Iron Man package.
  • It doubles as an always on desk light.
  • It triples as a bed side flashlight…that your wife thinks you are dopey for leaving next to the bed!
  • Hours of fun trying to figure out the right combination to get full power.
  • Excellent re-creation of an iconic comic book mainstay.

The Bad:

  • Only one ‘the bad’.  Small pieces are easy to lose.  30 minutes later after a hunt for two power chips in a dark basement.

The Rest:

  • The age on the box says 6+ but there is fun for all ages here, just make sure it’s supervised!!
  • I’m still having fun with it!

Official Product Bullet Points

  • 24 power chip combinations
  • Different solution every time you play
  • 6 light and sound reactions
  • Room light mode with display stand
  • Educational poster about Iron Man and Real World science!
