Six new kits of horrible high-jinx are available this Christmas, offering children some fearsomely fun edutainment. With no batteries required on Christmas morning, kids will tell the time with slime, discover the digestive system, understand the mysteries of magnets and get stuck into the world of snot, sick and spiders! The Horrible Science kits, from Living & Learning, contain props and instructions for a number of 'horrible' experiments, along with an exciting fact-filled notebook to inspire and entertain.

The Snotty Slime Clock kit contains time-consuming experiments include making a wacky water clock, a sizzling sundial and an awesome Snotty Slime clock, powered by real alien slime! The 20-page Top Secret Lab Notebook contains fascinating information about local time and other timeless facts.

Disgusting Digestion is stuffed full of stomach-churning experiments to help kids discover facts about how the digestive system works. From squelching sick in a fake stomach, filling a bursting bladder with wee, filtering fake blood through a kidney to squishing fake poo in a gruesome gut - digestion has never been so amusing.

For some magnetic attraction, the Mysterious Magnets kit is full of exciting experiments such as making a magnetic mucus monster, driving a car without touching it, creating hair-raisingly funny faces and exploring loony-levitation.

There are also three new Horrible Science bags for 2007 - Super Snot, Sick Stomach and Savage Spiders - perfect size for a stocking-filler.

Christmas is a time when jigsaw puzzles are often brought out to provide some indoor, family entertainment and this year the new range of truly 'Horrible' puzzles, from Living & Learning, will amuse family members of all ages. Based on the hugely successful Horrible Science and Horrible Histories books, these eight, 300-piece jigsaws have been developed, with both entertainment and education in mind. Once completed, each intricate picture reveals hoards of interesting truths, with a wonderfully humorous and 'horrible' twist.

The Horrible Science jigsaws feature topics such as Ugly Bugs, Loony Lab, Beastly Body Bits and Smashing Solar System, while the Horrible Histories jigsaws depict historical settings from Terrible Tudors, to Awful Egyptians, Rotten Romans and Cracking Castle.

The Horrible Science and Horrible Histories ranges are available from good independent toy stores and online at Amazon. For further information visit http://www.livingandlearning.com or call +44(0)161-428-9111.
