Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun way to get skittish kids to look at bugs! This product is great for kids who are afraid or skittish with bugs. Both my 2 year old and my 5 year old enjoy using it. It's great to be able to catch a bug and then observe it without having to necessarily touch it. The magnifying window allows for close up views too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO COOL This bug vac and view is so stinking cool. My daughter has so much fun trying to suck up all of the small insects she could find! Her favorite find so far has been catching a lady bug and getting to view it up close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovative Way to Explore Bugs! My 4 year old loved this the moment we took it out of the box- long before he even had bugs to suck into it. The size is perfect for small hands and it as a fun frog-tongue design. We found it best for sucking up already-dead bugs, but an older child will have more luck chasing live bugs around. There's a little door that slides open on the viewing capsule to release the bug back out, and it has air holes to help keep the bugs alive. The suction isn't super strong, but he was able to suck up dead bumble bees no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome toy that gets your kiddos outside and active! We all LOVED this unique toy! My 7 year old son couldn't wait to get outside and search for bugs with his new toy. We took it on a family walk and you couldn't wipe the smile off his face when he caught his first critter with the vac! After inspecting it, we were able to easily release the bug back into nature so no bugs are harmed using this product either. We can't wait to take it to the park with friends next week to see what else we can catch!
