We L-O-V-E Educational Insights!  We love that the toys are so unique and educational.  Over the past months, we have had the amazing opportunity to review some of their great products.  The latest being a Plankton Net!  What is a plankton net, you say!?

From Educational Insights:  

Millions of plankton live in ponds, lakes, and oceans. Take a closer look with the GeoSafari® Plankton Net! Toss the net into any natural body of water and sweep back and forth to collect plankton. Lift the net to examine them in the transparent bottle underneath or remove the bottle and attach the lid to share your finds with friends! 

It was really neat with the removable, magnified bottle with a cap.  It came with a laminated plankton-identification chart.  Waterproof. Priceless, since the whole idea involves playing in the water.  My kids loved playing explorers on a recent camping trip.  It is recommended for children over 8, but my 4-year-old enjoyed it just as much as my 7-year-old son.  My nephews, 9 and 10 , also really enjoyed playing with it.  They were intent on trying to capture some plankton that the other kids hadn’t yet found.  They have explored plankton of the lake… next stop – the ocean!

Science, math and language arts have been my favorite educational games/toys. Especially ones that the kids don’t look at it as “learning”.
