Summer vacation has officially arrived here for our children so now begins the task of trying to keep 4 children occupied and busy without Mom going insane! Luckily we just received some super cool products from our friends at Educational Insights that I am sure our children are going to get some great use out of!!! We received the GeoSafari® Jr. Talking Bug Net™ and our children were so excited when it arrived. Our kids aren't fans of REAL bugs so this is an awesome way for them to learn valuable facts about these pesky creatures without having to touch the real thing!! It says that it's recommended for children aged 4+ but with supervision, even our 2 year old has been having a blast with the talking bug net!!!
The GeoSafari Jr. Talking Bug Net comes with 6 different bugs and the interactive bug net. Our boys love playing with the net but they also love playing with the bugs by themselves. It's super cute watching them play with the bugs, making them crawl around the house and sticking them on their siblings!! In "Fun Facts" mode, you learn all sorts of facts about each bug and when you think you are ready, you can switch it over to the "Quiz" mode to see just how much you have learned. For example, it might ask " Which animals eats its food with their feet" and if you put the butterfly in the net, it will tell you that you are correct. If you choose the wrong bug, it will tell you to try again! I can't believe how much my kids (and myself!!!) have learned about these common bugs that we see outside of our home every day! Like, who knew that the Praying Mantins only has 1 ear?! And my kids cringed to hear that in some countries, grasshoppers are a yummy treat! The great thing is, they are learning the benefits of these bugs too and aren't just looking at them as a nuisance anymore. For instance, ladybugs help protect the farmers crops. Since we are surrounded by corn fields, this is something great for them to have learned!!!!
Check out this awesome video to see exactly what this learning toy can do!!!
One lucky reader is going to win their own GeoSafari Jr. Talking Bug Net!!!
