Hydroponic Fly Traps received 3 awards in 2011! As The National Parenting Center reviewers wrote, "If you or your children are unfamiliar with the concept or science behind hydroponics, by the time you are done with this kit you will know more than you could have possibly imagined. That's what happens when you do hands-on experiments and activities." Hydroponic Fly Traps won The National Parenting Center's Fall 2011 Seal of Approval, Dr. Toy's Best Picks Children's Products 2011 Award, and the 2011 Preferred Choice Award from Creative Child Magazine.

As Dr. Toy wrote in the review of this fun collection, "Teaching children about the flora that abounds throughout the planet provides wonder from the natural world, instills curiosity about the intricacies of life, and nurtures the beginnings of an ecological consciousness."
