Li’l Man is an outdoor child. As soon as the car arrives home, he flings the door open and heads out to explore the woods. Over dinner his stories tell of creepy, crawling bugs, bird discoveries and more. Backyard Safari Outfitters packs the perfect arsenal of toys and accessories to keep his adventures coming.
When the box arrived, I had to call him inside to open it. When the Cargo Vest came out he put it on and was ready to roll. It is obviously a must-have piece. He loves the cargo pockets and fills them to the brim daily with rocks, “diamonds” and other “artifacts” from his secret place. To him, the Cargo Vest offers an authentic look that makes his play genuine from the six D-rings and two shoulder epaulets he can clip and hang even more gear. His favorite thing about the vest is the clear chest pocket’s contents–a Pop-Up Field guide!
As he was shooting his arm through the Cargo Vest, I pulled out the mini-scoop net. He immediately shared big plans of using this net to scoop up a butterfly to examine closely and the probability that this cool pluck fish from streams still looms. The nylon mesh is light yet sturdy and thankfully, floats!
There was tension and a heated “Dibbs!” calling as the Lazer Light Bug Vacuum came from the box. The possibilities of bug catching just entered the future with this bug vac, allowing them to light up bugs and suck them up for up close examination with the built-in magnifying glass. There’s even an extra nose cone for those really big bugs! Thankfully it also comes with a pop-up field guide “The 7-steps to Bug Wrangling” which kept one of them reading while the other was scoring bugs.
Sitting on our shelf is the Land and Water Habitat. It’s being saved for when they finally find tadpoles or a turtle! The clear dome will allow them a 360 degree view. It will be a pent-house for whatever lands in this piece of real-estate with a built-in pool, sculpted terrain and a great view of the kiddos that will be observing. The habitat allow addition of scenic backdrops and transferring of bugs safely into the habitat with the added port that allows them to doc the capture core from their Light Bug Vacuum.
It’s all being observed through the Magnifying Glass. The kiddos are getting up close to look at plants, rocks, bugs and more! Li’l Man loves that it includes built-in scales to help him measure his specimens and document them in his notebook.
Outdoor play has never been so much fun! Backyard Safari Outfitters is available at Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com and Target. Make it a season to remember!
