Earth Day is once again upon us, but in 2020 it will be a little different. While we humans are sheltering inside, the earth is chugging along without us. To help remind your kids of the beauty of nature, which they’re probably missing by now, we’ve put together a list of our nature-related toys to celebrate Earth Day:
- Our Blue Planet Puzzle
- Bug Vac ‘N’ View
- Bug Podz
- Junior Outdoor Set
- Ant Mountain
- Totally Bugs
- Jellyfish Lamp – Color Changing Mood Light
- T-Rex Head Torch
It’s hard to choose the coolest thing about this puzzle. You can bring this puzzle anywhere in the great hat shaped carrying case. AND it’s double sided – one side’s got Europe, Africa, and the Americas, and the other has Asia and Australia. Each continent has fun facts and images about landmark features and indigenous animals. The perfect way for kids six and up to furrow their brows and get to know our world.
Ever wish you could scoop up all the bugs in the world without crushing their little thoraces? Well, now you can! This adorable frog shaped vacuum picks up all kinds of bugs without harming them, and sends them into the collection chamber, which is actually a sweet little observatory with air holes and NOT a medieval torture cave. Kids as young as four get antsy just looking at this little froggy guy!
Comes in 34 pieces and allows for tons of wacky, post-apocalyptic designs to keep your buggy pals in. Great combination gift with the Vac-n-View – catch your pals, then configure them a neat little home space! You can even do a little home improvement by adding dirt, leaves, and sand so your buddies can dig, burrow, and climb. Even five year olds can safely enjoy this unique terrarium.
This is a must-have set for any budding outdoor explorer or hiker . Featuring rugged 4×30 binoculars, and essential compass, headlamp for night exploration, and a water bottle to keep hydrated, this set includes a convenient carry bag with a belt loop to keep everything you need by your side.
Have you ever watched a kid discover an ant hill? It’s equal parts endearing and heartbreaking, once they realize they can’t dig through the hill with their hands. Problem solved. This kit comes with a complete how-to guide as well as a fascinating booklet explaining the lives of ants, their likes, dislikes, preferences (for example, they love celery, carrots, and apples.) Nothing makes you feel like a real myrmecologist than building your own ant farm, especially at the ripe old age of six!
This is a bug encyclopedia DISGUISED as a toy set. Including fully exhaustive accounts of the lives of beetles, ants, flies, spiders, and ladybugs, this set has fact cards, a hardback book, AND five different bug models so you can build your own hybrid bug monster to terrify the neighborhood kids. Any bug enthusiast, age seven at least, will be overcome with BEETLEMANIA when they open this bad boy!
This weird, wild color-changing mood light features two ultra-realistic rubber jellyfish that swim around the tank on a silent current. Way better and easier than goldfish, and they don’t require feeding!
Send them out to explore the wild jungle with this cool, roaring t-rex head torch. Features an adjustable head strap for all sizes and ages, just press the button twice to make it roar!
