Insect lore is a company that has really fascinating educational toys for children , these are all about insects and come is a wide verity. I have had a butterfly farm, earthworm nursery and a couple of plastic toys.
I like insect lore as they have thought my kids all about the stages and cycles of insects witch is truly fascinating even from an adults prospective.
I seen the insect lore backyard bunch garden tools on amazon.co.uk last year and bought two sets in different characters.
Insect lore backyard bunch tools cost £14.99 from amazon uk. Backyard bunch tools come in different colours to match the insects, yellow colour is the bee witch is the one we have however you can have pink ladybird, green Mantis, red spider.
In the box there is gardening gloves, a small foam kneeling pad, hand shovel and rake. You can purchase the metal watering cans separate.
Each tool is bright yellow with black stripes like the bee, they have big cartoon type eyes and mouth. As they are very colour full these stand out and look kind of cool.
The tools are very small due to the set being made for children.
The shovel and rake both have wooden handles and my kids found them easy to hold, and use, as well as being light weight too.
The gloves are thick material with a rubber coating on them very sweet and a little too big for my girls however they are only three years old and box does state for four years and over.
We don't have much of a garden, big enough just mainly grass with a small border for my flowers, this suits me as i don't have much time for gardening. I did inherit a green house when we moved in witch is huge. I bought loads of pots and compost bags for the girls easter last year as we had talked about all the things we wanted to grow.
Me and my partner went shopping to the garden centre and bought tomato plants, strawberry plants along with normal garden flowers all in small pots so we just had to transfer them.
My daughters loved having their new garden gloves on filling the pots up , using the rake on the dirt, digging holes for the plants in the soil and the whole experience was fun for them. I did buy one insect lore watering can as they took turns to water the tomato's and plants last summer.
After the plants were seen to the girls used the kneeling pad to kneel on beside the sand pit and to tools were also used in there.
I must say the tools are very hard wearing and still as good as new, will be used again this year too.
Insect lore backyard bunch tools i feel were a great buy at a reasonable price, will help children become keen little gardeners and is a real learning experience too.
I highly recommend these little colourful fun insect lore backyard bunch tools.
Everything to get the gardener going! Each set contains kneeling pad, kids gloves, hand shovel and hand cultivator.
