        Comments about Pretend & Play® Explorer Set:

        The Pretend & Play Explorer Set comes with everything some great bug catching gear as well as some items for growing plants. The set is a great starter set for bringing science into a child's world. The magnifying observation box is perfect for putting your bug finds and watching them closely. There is a butterfly net for catching flying bugs. The bug scooper is great for catching those really fast bugs that you don't really want to touch yourself. There is sort of a Swiss army type gadget with tweezers, ruler, compass and a magnifying glass in it. There is also a write and wipe guide that is great for use while bug hunting, growing plants, or just learning.

        The set also comes with some mini garden tools too. My son likes to care for plants when he can so this is a great little starter set for growing his own plants. The garden tools are a small size just right for little hands. The pot is small and works for starting out a plant, but if your going to be growing a plant for long you will need to transfer it somewhere larger. The garden tools are perfect size for little hands. They are pretty sturdy also.

        The Learning Resources Pretend & Play Explore Set is great for learning and exploring nature. I really like that the set comes with a nice hard case that has a handle. He can easily carry this set with him wherever he wants to explore.

          I received the product free of charge in order to review on my blog, Second Time Around. My thoughts are 100% my own.

          My 5 year old was thrilled with this fun set and I loved that everything stores in an easy to carry case. It comes with everything you need to catch and observe insects as well as tools needed to plant (minus the dirt and seeds). My son loved everything and had so much fun exploring. The tools are all made of plastic and have so far held up but I'm not necessarily sure how durable they are. So far they seem great and we my son loves it.

            This is a fun beginner explorer kit. The products are small for a younger childs hands and help with fine motor skills, yet are made to play with. Like that it comes with a sturdy case to keep everything together in.

              We received this to review and my 4 year old especially loved it. There are plenty of bug containers and catching tools to share between siblings too! The pieces are sturdy and I LOVE that they can all store in a container that snaps shut so we don't lose the pieces. It has a good array of tools to use and would certainly make a fun gift.

                Comments about Pretend & Play® Explorer Set:

                My son is true boy through and through and I am learning that more and more everyday! :) Right now he is in the MEGA bug stage and is loving playing outside, looking through the sand and dirt at the playground, grass and anywhere he can! He gets so excited when he finds any kind of bug or insect and he can't wait to capture them with his new Pretend & Play® Explorer Set from Learning Resources!

                My son LITERALLY carries this Explorer Set with him no matter where we are going. According to him, "you never know when he could find a bug!". There are so many great items for any young explorer and they really have helped my son explore the world of bugs!

                I love the child size observation tools that encourage children to act on their world in a safe, empathetic way. I am always telling my son that these are God's creatures, especially when he is finding them in their own environment (outside!). This explorer set allows him to observe without hurting them!

                This set has everything a young child needs to know explore the outside world, observe it and even grow a garden of their own! LOVE IT!
