About the SmartLab Bug Playground

Pet bugs are not for everyone: most of us, for instance, would be less than eager to meditate with a tarantula. However, many kids are naturally drawn to all things creepy and crawly and squirmy and squiggly, and think bugs are the coolest thing ever. For these kids, we recommend the

Smartlab Bug Playground!

The Playground doubles as a hospitable little habitat for tiny pets, and as a laboratory where kids can watch their little pals and learn how to make scientific observations about their behavior. Make no mistake, the bug habitat is indeed a playground: it features a climbing wall, a pool with a ramp, a curly slide, a crawling tube, and a jungle gym, so kids can observe what surfaces bugs can climb up, whether they like water or not, whether they prefer to hide or explore, and more.

Older kids will love reading through the included booklet, learning tons of factoids about bugs, and observing the differences in how bug species navigate their world, spurring their interest in biology and giving them their first lesson in the scientific method. The age recommendation on this science kit is 7 and up, but younger kids will also enjoy the Smartlab Bug Playground – reviewers say that their kids skip the science part and just love watching the bugs doing their thing. And kids of any age will be thrilled to pieces when they finally see a bug go down the slide!

The Smartlab Bug Playground comes with a booklet with experiments, a plastic playground (measuring 5” x 3.5” x 3”, a handheld bug-catcher that lets kids gently capture their creepy pals, and playground pieces: a climbing wall, a pool with a ramp, a curly slide, a crawling tube, and a jungle gym. Some assembly required.


WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
