Educational Insights Nancy B's Bug Discovery Lab & Insects is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took awhile, but now they're interested! I am glad I waited to give this review, but at first I would have only given it 1 or 2 stars. I pulled this out as a surprise for my kids on a nice day thinking they would be excited and raring to go collect bugs. Instead, they were totally uninterested and only briefly looked at them before going out to play something else. It was only about 2 weeks later they looked at them again and collected their first bugs. Now they ask to go collect bugs, and really love showing them off. The containers are very convenient for little hands to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bug Catcher Awesome bug catcher with a lot of really nice features. My girls are huge outdoors explorers and we own a multitude of bug & animal houses of ever type you can imagine. This one is especially great because it includes the bug pit, bug catcher, magnifying domes, and a mirrored bottom. My kids (8 & 10) have been having a ball using the pit to unearth hidden bugs well below the surface & enjoy the element of surprise when they see what's been captured. They've used the catcher both inside & out to scoop up lady bugs, silver fish, worms, emerging caterpillars, spiders... and the weather has just begun to get warm. They like that the mirrored bottom and magnifying domes allow them to get a really good look at their specimens, and the air holes allow them a longer time for examination before they must release their finds. It's a nice study bug house, of a good size, and probably the nicest one we've found thus far. My youngest isn't too interested in the accompanying insect journal, but my eldest keeps it by her bedside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great bug kit with a journal full of information! This is a great, well made bug kit. It comes with a bug terrarium, a bug catcher, a pit trap, and a very informative journal that has a lot of suggestions for learning about different bugs. My two girls ages 6 and 8 love to catch bugs and were excited to receive this set. The bug terrarium is a nice size to study bugs. It has a soft, grippy handle, is easy to open and feels sturdy and well made. It has magnifying parts all around it and a shiny mirrored place on the bottom so you can see the underside of the bugs you catch. Although the first bug we caught was crawling all over the sides so we saw it really well. It says right in the book to not leave it in the sun or the bugs will overheat and I agree especially with the metallic part on the floor of it. The pit trap is really cool. You just set it out and it has a funnel that the bugs fall in and can't get back out. It also seems very sturdy and well made. We didn't have any luck catching anything in it yet, but we are still very early in the season and there aren't many bugs out. The bug catcher is a little trickier to use. It feels flimsier than the other pieces and is harder to open and close. You place the bubble top over the bug you want to catch and then slide the bottom under it to trap it. I caught a lightning bug in it for my girls and was afraid I was going to squish it's legs. The book recommends that you practice picking up things such as small crumpled pieces of paper in it until you can do it well and I also recommend it. The journal is very informative. It gives you info on where to find bugs, how to attract different kinds, how to make a net to catch flying bugs, and information on different bugs and different life cycles. While we were given a set free to try out, I would not hesitate to buy this if I was looking for one or as a gift. I would recommend it to anyone with kids that like bug catching, girls or boys ages 5 and up with parents help with the journal.
