My boy is a real "boys boy." All dirt, bugs in pockets, carrying around frogs, type of boy. When it came up again to be able to review some Backyard Safari Outfitters products, I couldn't say no. I knew these would be things that Lil' Buddy would like, and of course Boug as well, since she's a bit of a tomboy too. Although the products that were sent were for ages 5 and up, I knew that Boug would have no problem being the helpful big sister, and they would be toys that they could enjoy together.
First off, the Base Camp Shelter, along with the Camoflauge Netting, is what the kids are most excited about. Its large enough for both kids to sit in, and easy to be set up. There are tons of storage spaces and pockets for all the field gear that Backyard Safari Outfitters offers. Lil' Buddy was excited that the tent came with a Mini-Lantern with a carabiner. Boug even mentioned that the camoflauge netting would be perfect so that they don't scare the deer that walk through my parents yard.
Boug's been trying to teach Buddy how to use the Expedition One 3-in-1 Compass Tool, but he's still a little too small. She's trying though, cause she wants to show him how the flip out magnifying lens works, as well as how a compass actually works.
Buddy is really lovin the Backyard Safari Hiking Stick, because it lets him be just like his grandfather! They take nature walks through the woods and grandpa always has a walking stick. The hiking stick from Backyard Safari looks hand carved, but with no worry of splinters!
With Backyard Safari's new patch program, kids are able to receive cool patches as rewards for completing fun, outdoor adventures! Backyard Safari gear is available at Toys R Us and Amazon.com.
This review was done in conjuction with Team Mom, and product was provided to me free of charge. This in no way changes my opinion about the items.
