Exploring Insects Part 2: Identifying Bugs

This was the BEST kind of Christmas present. It appealed to my son's wild side, was inexpensive, educational, and has provided hours of play time for the both of us.

Little guy (and little lady) has fun identifying all the different bugs,and in fact he's gotten quite good at it!
We ask questions like:
How many legs does this one have?
Does this hornet have a stinger?
What does this bug eat?
Why do you think this one is blue/green/yellow/etc?
Thank goodness for the booklet that comes in the package, or I may not have ANY of those answers.

Unfortunately, the model we have is discontinued, but here is a similar toy. In fact we may purchase a second kit just to get some extra bugs!
