The Backyard Safari hiking stick serves its purpose well. It adds to the overall theme of Backyard Safari and is useful in many ways. The stick can help a youngster conquer tough terrain, helps to poke-and-prod out those hidden insects, or just a restful lean-to when the child is tired of hiking. It is sturdy plastic, about 48” tall and has a cloth grip. The stick is made to look like it is made of wood, with a fun animal carving at the top of the staff. There is also a built in loop to affix your lantern to (comes with the Base Camp). Included with the stick there is a pop-up field guide with hiking “missions” and another patch to earn once the missions are completed.
The is a must! Nothing sets the adventure for success better than a vest that makes the kids’ look and feel the part. It is a durable khaki material and has plenty of pockets and storage for anything that you need to carry on you. There are two Velcro-closure pockets, one deep zipper pocket with a small mesh pocket exteriorly, and a see-through pocket great for carrying the field guides. It also features six plastic D-rings to carry other gear and a durable zipper that closes the front of the vest. The vest is only one size, but it isn’t too big that smaller children cannot wear it also. My daughter is four and it fit her just fine, but it also looks like it would fit the average six to eight year old. There is plenty of empty space to affix the Safari Expedition patches your child “earns”. Backyard Safari says there is an adjustable strap and two mesh pockets on the back, but the one we received did not feature that.
“There are THOUSANDS of crawling, flying, buzzing bugs in your backyard—catch them LIVE with your ! Look at bugs up-close with the built-in magnifying lens. The CAPTURE CORE attaches to the Backyard Safari™ Bug Habitat (sold separately) for easy transfer of your insects.”
This Backyard Safari Lazer Light Bug Vac was the end-all-be-all of outdoor toys for my daughter. It sparked a new interest in insects and creepy crawlies and she could not get enough of this toy! She wore out the battery within the first four days of use (The vacuum runs off four included AA batteries). The Bug Vac is a hand-held plastic vacuum which features a sturdy grip, 3 suction settings, 2 removable clear canisters for storing and viewing your catch (they each have a magnifying glass built right in), and a nose cone to direct the suction. There is a targeting Laser Light included to help hone in on the insect target and helps view the critter in dark places.
