Backyard Safari Outfitters (A+)

in Family, General, Product Reviews

I think our brutal Canadian winters make us Canadians REALLY appreciate summer. I love that my kids can’t get enough of the outdoors, so when I was asked to review the ‘Backyard Safari Outfitter’ products, I thought they’d be a good fit for my family.

They arrived last week the day before Georgia’s birthday. Being the cheapskate that I am, I wrapped them up to give her as gift.

I thought about handing them over to Sam, but I thought that he might be a bit too old. WOW, was I wrong. The minute Georgia opened the box Sam was all over the Bug Vacuum.

He had the Cargo Vest on, the Field Binocs around his neck and he went bug hunting.

Within a couple of minutes he’d vacuumed up a spider.

Once you’ve vacuumed up a creepy crawler you can twist a magnifiying glass across the end of Bug Vacuum and get a close up look at your catch.

Even the girls wanted a look …

The highlight was definitely catching a bee.

Can you tell he’s just a wee bit thrilled? YA THINK?

You’re probably thinking that Sam took over the Bug Vacuum. Not a chance the girls like it just as much.

    That looks excellent, I know our girls would love it. I’m not sure how much Mommy would like it though, bugs – yuck!

    I love these! I am planning a safari-themed party for my 5-year-old and these would be perfect! I have some great food ideas and decorating ideas, but I am having trouble with favor ideas. I was thinking about candy bar party favors
    like those. Any other suggestions?

    This brings back my childhood memories I use to do this when I am a little kid :)

    My Frankie played with a single ant for 30 minutes yesterday. He certainly didn’t get that from me. Hopefully it’s just a phase, yuck! I don’t think I’d do so well on the Backyard Safari if there are bugs invovled.
