Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys are obsessed with this habit! Oh my goodness my boys are obsessed with this!! They were sharing and working together to use the magnifying glass sections. They have been checking out flowers in it, until they can "catch a lizard for the habitat". This is sturdy and attractive to kiddos and adults alike. I think we will be examining many many critters in the future...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our family's summer explorations! We have just begun using this product, but the design and aesthetic seem well thought out! My 2 and 4 year olds will need help catching critters, but I love how easy it is for them to lock/unlock the lid and to carry it around the yard. We've already been practicing looking through the magnifying lens. I hope we will take good care of it for many summers to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for critters! We love this habitat! It is sturdy and large enough to put one or several critters in, in addition to plants, dirt, and whatnot. My 5 year old found a some sort of insect pupa outside. We put it in the habitat and about a week later, got to see a moth emerge. It was pretty cool. Both my daughters enjoy catching what they can and putting it in here to observe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter has had a blast catching critters My Daughter Loves this product! She has always been curious to learn more about little critters but was too afraid to get too close. As soon as we opened the package she was outside running with it trying to collect critters. She was able to catch a large grasshopper pretty quickly and was so excited to be able to study it through the built in magnifying glass! The habitat also has a feeder inside so she felt like she was able to take care of her critter before releasing him later. This product is great for both wet and dry critters, after she released the grasshopper we filled it with water and put tadpoles inside. She has had the best time watching them grow and slowly turn into frogs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish this had a lock on the lid I really did like the idea of this for playing outside in the yard, however I really wish that the lid had some sort of snap or lock on it. I have only let the kids put plants in there because I am afraid for them to collect any other critters for fear that the lid will come off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great habitat for wet and dry creatures The habitat is a gallon size rectangular hard plastic with 5 magnifying spots and a cool slide out rotating feeder. Great for dry or wet environment. There is a lid with a handle for the kids to carry. The lid also has small air holes for the creature to breath. Since we lived in the city we decided to use the habitat for a beta fish. The gallon size is roomy and the fish is happy. The kids can watch the fish up close using the magnifying circles on the side of the habitat or on top of the lid. They like to slide out the feeder, load the pellets onto feeder and push it back to dump the food. We have not used the habitat as a dry environment yet but can easily imagine the kids using it to study bugs, butterfly or frogs later on. It's portable and light weight for the kids to carry on their future outdoor explorations. Given that we are using the habitat as a wet environment we are not sure if it's safe to carry the habitat using the handle. We carry it using the base only. Not sure if the number of air holes on the lid is enough for the fish so my husband unscrew the 2 magnifying circles on the lid as a precaution.
