Smart Lab "Bug PlayGround" Review/Giveaway CLOSED


#11 Mindi

So, I personally haven't met a kid yet that don't like some sort of bug. Either from ladybugs, warms, crickets, potato bug and well so many other little critters. My kids love bugs I mean they will go outside and try to catch and play with. They each carry this little jar around with them to collect bugs, personally I am not a big fan not that they creep me out, I guess I just don't see the thrill in them as much as I did when I was little. The problem with them catching bugs they don't really have no where to keep them as a little pet not sure if you can call them a pet but my kids do. Having the chance to review SmartLab Bug Playground was great for my kids and well they have been happy ever since with the product. Not only do they have a place to keep their bugs but they can also learn even more about the bugs at the same time.


About the company: SmartLab Toys makes educational toys with a book component for kids ages 4 - 12. They believe that kids learn best through hands-on exploration, so they offer that experience wrapped up in a fun toy and a cool book. In 2004, SmartLab started out with eight science kits. Two years later, they expanded into arts and crafts. Their roster of award-winning toys now stands at nearly 50 products that stimulate both sides of the brain. They are guided by a desire to both entertain and educate.

SmartLab offers some really cool toys for boys and girls and actually there are some really cool looking ones that I am sure would be a hit with my kids for Christmas. Hey, thinking about Christmas it is never to early for me lol. They have a nice variety for girls like spa, pampering, fashion and so much more. My little girl would love all of them. For little boys they offer toys for vehicles, rockets and even dinosaurs plus more, oh my I could see my little boy with the car ones now. Since his passion at four is anything to do with wheels. Also they offer the Bug Playground which was a hit with my kids and I am sure most little kids would love it too!
Bug Playground ages 7+ valued at $14.99: 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!  Find out what makes your friendly neighborhood insects respond with this one-of-a-kind bug-catching guide. Or just watch them summit the rock wall, take a swim in the pool, and whoosh down the slide!


This toy was such a hit that as soon as I received it my kids went bug hunting right away. Of course there was some assembly so while they were on their big hunt I was putting the playground together. This didn't take that long and the instructional sheet was really nicely step by step. So, my kids by the end of their hunt has so many little bugs in their little playground and they were having a blast sitting on the floor watching all of them move around.  All I keep hearing was cool, look at that. It was great to see how much fun and for me it was nice to actually have something that they could put their bugs into and actually get to watch them. I really liked the catcher that was really nice, I was also really impressed that they took turns I did think they would fight over the catcher but it worked out great. There is also a really cool book that has some really interesting information that my daughter just loved to death. This toy has been great for my bug hunting kids!

Also SmartLab offers a really cool Free Zone for kids where they can check out some really cool free fun activities. Here kids can boost their brainpower with all kinds of trivia, and even test out the art. And even concoct all sorts of experiments, edible and otherwise. You can come back every week for new stuff that will entertain and educate your kids.
