Colour and Noise! Let's play with toys follows Archie the elephant, Frank the flamingo, Bob the duck and the rest of the gang while they explore the playroom. How do wheels work? Why does clay change shape? and What makes a top spin? are just some of the questions that the friends discuss. With accessible diagrams and 12 step-by-step experiments (plus some of the world's silliest jokes!), they find out the simple scientific explanations to these questions and many more. A uniquely unstuffy approach to science that gets kids involved with the world around more
