Copernicus

Maker - Peggy Tobias

Copernicus

Maker Story

Hands-On Family Fun

Renaissance astronomer Copernicus defied conventional wisdom when he put the sun, not the Earth, at the center of the solar system -- and that’s just the kind of thinking Copernicus Toys wants to inspire.

Science kits from Copernicus Toys are a true sensory experience. Kids can see, hear, touch, smell and even taste the experiments. With the Glowing Putty, Gels & Slime Kit, kids can do 15 stretchy/bouncy/fizzling activities that explore the chemistry behind gels, polymers, and phosphorescence. The Edible Chemistry Kit is all about experiments you can eat: fizzy drinks, color-changing jelly, polymer pudding and more. With the Cool Blue Light Experiment Kit, kids trigger chemical reactions to make light. Among the 11 illuminating activities are experiments to build a hemoglobin detector and make a penny glow.

The husband-and-wife team of Avrom and Peggy Tobias runs Copernicus Toys today. The company was founded by Avrom’s parents, who owned a toy store and saw a need for more exciting activity kits to inspire kids’ curiosity. Avrom and Peggy are continuing the family tradition and creating their own hands-on discovery kits that budding scientists of all ages can enjoy. Kids get to play the mad scientist, and adults get to rediscover the fun of learning.
