My munchkins received three products from Team Mom for this review, they were part of the Backyard Safari Outfitters line from Summit Products. My kids received a Cargo Vest, Mega View Periscope and Bug Vacuum. All of the products listed in this review may be purchased at Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com, and Target.
When the package arrived I opened it up and shared with my sons, who were home at the time. We geared up and got ready to head outdoors on a backyard adventure. The boys enjoyed catching snails and a fly. Of all the bugs we saw in the backyard they had more fun placing snails inside the Bug Vacuum and then accidentally caught a fly, I couldn’t believe they caught a fly because those things are super fast.
We had fun using the magnifying glass inside of the Bug Vacuum to get a closer look at the fly and snail. Once we were done with our investigation we let the bugs go back to their home and moved on to use the Periscope. Baby K is a tad little for the periscope but that didn’t stop him from trying to use it. We have a huge tower in our backyard that makes for fun periscope adventures together too!
Backyard Safari Outfitters encourages children to get active, which is a huge must for the Summer season. We are a family who does very little activity in the Winter months which means we do everything possible to stay overly active in the warm weather months here in NH. It was fun to have “nature play” with the products received and now my children are obsessed with finding more bugs and trying to figure out what kind of bugs they are.
Backyard Safari Outfitters equips young explorers with all the essential field gear they could possibly need for scoping out local wildlife, from insects in the grass to birds in the sky and much more! Kids can choose from a wide range of fun gear and tools. Which also include the practical and very snappy looking Cargo Vest, which I was unable to get a picture of since my boys don’t quite like having more than they need to have on for clothing. They do like the vest but it’s more because of the fact it has a zipper on it, they are very super interested taking the periscope and the bug vacuum outside every chance they get!
You can find Backyard Safari Outfitters on Twitter as @BYSOutfitters and find them on Facebook too. For more information about this product line please visit Summit Products online.
