    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr Bugopticals:

    My 4 year old daughter really enjoys this toy. She loves carrying it around the house and yard to look at things through all the different lenses. I was initially going to get her the microscope, but she's so active, I figured something like this that she could carry around would get more use. I suspect this may be her show and tell item at school :)

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr Bugopticals:

    I received the Educational Insights Bug Opticals 2 weeks ago. At first my 5 year old son told me it "was a baby toy" but after a few minutes he fell in love with it! He plays with it every day. He likes to see what colors he can make with the various lenses. He also enjoyed using the magnifiers on his toys. We are planning to take it outside soon and explore. I would recommend this for younger children. I think 5 years old is the cut off, though. Full disclosure I was given the Bugs Optical in exchange for an honest review.

      This product certainly meets and or exceeds the curiosity of little ones. How cool to see like an insect does, be able to get higher magnificaions and change colors too. All the while being easy to hold. AND cute as a dragonfly!

        My four year old daughter really enjoys this toy. She LOVES to look at objects through the 'bug eye' lens! She also enjoys looking through and mixing the colored lenses to see the world around her as different colors. I would recommend this toy to anyone who has a child who is curious-minded and likes to explore. Please note that we received this toy from Educational Insights in exchange for an honest review.

        Neat educational toy for younger children

          We received this toy as a test toy and in exchange will write an honest review. My children are 4 and 9 years old. My 9 year is way past this stage in exploring the outside. My 4 year thought it was neat for about a day or two and hasn't really picked it up to play with again. It is made very well and very cute. Each of the circle magnifiers let you view the world in different ways and would be fun to take on a hike or to the park. I would recommend this toy for children younger than four.

            ALL of my children love this toy! 6,4 and 2! It works well for my oldest, as she loves to mix the colored lenses, my middle, likes to magnify all the bugs he finds, and my youngest thinks the dragonfly design is great! A wonderful well rounded toy! great for outside exploration!

            Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr Bugopticals:

            I personally think this is really neat and incredibly educational. Our 3yo daughter isn't quite into it yet, though. I think in a few months when we use it more throughout the summer outside, she will really like it and learn about color mixing, etc.

                As a homeschool mom, I love collecting fun and educational toys and manipulatives. Anything science related is normally a huge hit in my house. This is both an adorable and handy tool for exploring many things. My children (8 & 4) really like looking through the bug eye. Showing them how secondary colors are made is also a great feature since the wings are movable. The possibilities are almost endless and we will have to venture out to do more exploring with it soon!

                Bug Opticals

                By NLF

                from Wichita, KS

                Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr Bugopticals:

                We just received the Bug Opticals, and my 2 children, a boy, almost 4, and a girl, age 6, love playing with them. They've used them mostly indoors due to poor weather, but are excited to use them in the back yard to explore as well. They love combining the different colors and using the different magnification lenses. So far it seems quite sturdy and has held up well to little hands pulling and pushing and dropping. Nicely designed product!

                  My daughter (4 years old) loves her new "BugOpticals" from GeoSafari Jr. She has been exploring the house and yard with the magnifying lenses. She loved being able to look up close at the roly polys and slugs that she found under a rock. She was so intrigued by the faceted lens when I explained to her that it was how insects see the world around them. The colored lenses were a great addition to this toy. My daughter thought it was neat looking at things in different colors and even "mixed" the colors by overlapping the lenses. She was able to understand how different colors are made (red & yellow make orange, etc.). This is a great toy for all different ages.
