2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Space Cadets​ 

Houston, we’ve found the perfect gifts! Show your NASA pride with the three-quarter length sleeve “I Need My Space” T-shirt, or, prepare your little one to shoot for the stars in our Baby Astronaut Suit Onesie! Prepare for your very own lunar expedition with Barbie: Mission Commander as you search for glowing moonstones using her special tool kit. Don’t forget, astronauts need fuel too! Energize with our ready-to-eat space food and best-seller: Astronaut Ice Cream!









Curiously Cozy

Stay Curious, and cozy, this winter! Choose your favorite design from our fun “Sock it to Me” space socks, available in adult, junior and baby sizes! Don the “Scientific Things” holiday sweatshirt to your next Ugly Christmas Sweater party for a clever nod to the sci-fi hit, “Stranger Things!” Hygge takes on a science theme when you switch out your boring pillow for a super-plush Plushkins Space Shuttle, and glow all night long with your very own Himalayan Salt Lamp.











Visit our exhibition Grossology, and then find out where the “grossness” all began with the original “Grossology: The Science of Really Gross Things” by Sylvia Branzei! Get lost in the thrilling story of the first mission to the Moon when you pick up “Apollo 8” by Jeffrey Kluger and gift the special girl or woman in your life with her very own copy of “Women in Science,” written and illustrated by Rachel Ignotofsky!










DIY Science


Bring the lab home with you when you gift the Beaker Creatures set! Use a special chemical reaction to extract your very own creature and identify it using classification cards! Take over the universe with RobotiKits 7-in-1 Solar Rechargeable Space Fleet! Create and control seven different lunar modules and power them using a mini solar panel! Plus, the LEGO craze never ends! Pay homage to the brilliant, female minds of NASA history with the LEGO Women of NASA set and then blast off in the LEGO NASA Apollo Saturn V set!







Stocking Stuffers

Who knew so much science could fit into one stocking? Pick up the Pocket Scope for your little microbiologist! This spy-size scope acts as an 8x telescope and 30x microscope! Or, bounce to the moon with our hyper-bouncing Moonball! If there’s still room left, grab a tin of Crazy Aaron’s Magnetic Thinking Putty and make slime come alive! For the finishing touch, blast out of orbit with the Mini RC Rocket Race Car that comes in a compact case.
