The older a child gets, in my opinion the harder it is to keep them entertained with traditional learning toys, they need to have a more hands on experience to get them more involved. SmartLab offers stimulated play by offering fun art, science and puzzle related products that really get your child involved.
Take for example the Stars and Planets science set. Young explorers will realize that what they can learn about the galaxy is as limitless as the night sky! Includes build-it-yourself solar system, battery-powered planetarium, and glow-in-the-dark star charts.
My youngest son is all about the Solar System and I know would just love the fun and learning experience associated with this set.
Being SmartLab was generous enough to be a part of my Summer event, I wanted something outdoor related that would appeal to all my children. As soon as I came across the Bug Playground I knew just what I had to choose, even if it did gross Mom out.
The smallest of game hunting starts here! Wrangle your backyard creepy-crawlies into this mini funhouse. Good choices: crickets, ants, and beetles. Not so good: wasps, termites, and cockroaches. Go outside and play!
Yes my favorite words "go outside and play!" The SmartLab Bug Playground kept my children entertained for hours, days even. My daughter, (yes my daughter) has been outside every day this week catching Lovebugs! My son is an ant collector, Ants don't stand a chance against him.
Create your own funhouse for bugs with a climbing wall, pool, curly slide, crawling tube, and jungle gym all included. I have to say it was kind of interesting watching bugs up close crawling down the slide, climbing through the crawling tube, etc. Even I couldn't help but imagine if they were having fun, if the ant standing at the top of the slide was waiting for the ant on the slide to finish his turn. Silly I know, but it really made you wonder and it made my kids wonder so many different facts about bugs in general.
Although kids will be kids and they like to use their hands to wrangle bugs (YUCK) the Bug Playground also comes with a Handheld bug catcher, for a bug catcher like myself who would prefer to keep their hands clean!
SmartLab offers a great variety of hand on products for bot boys and girls. Next time your stuck on a children's gift or looking for something a bit different checkout Smartlab
