8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

If you liked Gallop! A Scanimation Book, you'll love the magical journey that is Safari. Readers, as if on safari, encounter 8 wild animals that come alive! Using an innovative lenticular-based technology, precision sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. Mesmerizing!

Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. It's the romance of being on safari - and the almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion - in a book unlike any other.

Hardcover containing 16 pages.

Kids are crazy about bugs! And kids and parents alike are crazy about the Bug Book and Bug Bottle. Packed with activities and packaged in its own collecting bottle, the full-colour book provides field notes to 47 bugs arranged by habitat, including pond, forest, ground, leaves, field, and flower. The ingeniously designed, safe plastic bottle is perfect for catching and viewing creepy crawlies, then letting them go unharmed(this is a bug kit with a conscience)!

Written by entomologist Hugh Danks, the Bug Book gives comprehensive information about these fascinating creatures - how they live, what they eat, unusual characteristics, and more. It offers simple, clear guidelines on how to collect and care for bugs, and equally helpful hints on which bugs not to catch. New to the kit are a fold-out bug chart for quick identification, a magnifier to see the critters up close, and a bug explorer's journal to record discoveries.

Discover how the whirligig beetle got its name, why fireflies light up, and how water striders walk on water. And then impress parents and friends - here are all the tools kids need to become bona fide bug experts!

Includes: The Bug Book, ventilated bug container with ruler lid, magnifiying glass, bug identification chart and bug journal.

Softcover containing 112 pages.

The Gowi Magnifier Jar has many fun and educational uses. You can take a closer look at rocks and minerals, sand, leaves, dirt or other natural materials and learn from your observations. Bug lovers will enjoy the perfect place to observe insects you might stumble across in the yard. The magnifiying glass allows for an up close and personal view, while the air holes in the lid ensure that the insect is getting enough air and the insect is secure in the jar. After you have noted your observations and made a few sketches you can easily remove the lid and release your friend back into the wild outdoors.

The magnifier jar also has measurements in millilitres and ounces on the side, so you will always know how much earth or liquid it contains.

Measures approximately 3" high and 3" in diameter.
