The Nobel Prize doesn’t win itself, and if you’ve already planned your kids a successful career in science, it’s never too early to introduce them to complex concepts like DNA. And with these stuffed nucleobase characters, learning becomes a heck of a lot less tedious.

And if you don’t know what any of this means, then you’ve just realised the importance of getting this $US30 set for your kids so they don’t grow up scratching their heads too. [ThinkGeek]
