What the Educators Are Saying
"This photo represents three years of students creating their own personality masks, along with an informative essay on how their masks represented the various fields of psychological study, and sharing out in class, which results in a lot tears and bonding between my students. Hope you can appreciate, what your masks have done for my students."

I discovered Psychkits through an AP* Summer Institute, where the facilitators and attendees both had high praise for not just the durability and longevity of the already-assembled products, but of their relevance to students' everyday lives. The Psychkits staff provided personalized service and professional correspondence, and my order was received and shipped swiftly. Overall, I was very pleased with the products' quality and the excellent customer service that I received. Psychkits is trustworthy and dedicated to bolstering your lessons with relevant, hands-on products—you will not be disappointed (and do take advantage if their freebies)!

"Hi Gerry: Thanks for sending so many games and demos from your PsychKits website to the AP workshop Kent Korek and I ran up at Carlton College this past June.

Thanks for all you are doing to help us make Psychology fun."
