Review: I have boys, and even though one is older, they still love anything that has to do with Science. Also, they both have phones, and if you could imagine incorporating science and the use the phone, then this is the product for you. Heck, I really loved it too! It’s really simple and really fun, just take ordinary objects like feathers, leaves, etc. from outside and place them on the  SmartScope to get an in-depth look at them. You will be grabbing all kinds of things to see what it looks like close-up!

Buggaloop

Price $29.99

Ages 6+

 Look out! There’s a HEXBUG in the yard and it’s coming after you! Players take turns rolling the die and moving their bugs peacefully across the yard, until the HEXBUG emerges from the tunnel and tries to bump them off. Stay standing and continue down your path – get bumped and you’ll have to start from the beginning again! The first player to transport all of their bugs to safety wins this surprising buggy scramble!

1. Roll the die and move one of your bugs the corresponding number of spaces.

2. Watch out for the HEXBUG! If he bumps your bug off of a space, return to start.

3. The first player to move all of his bugs to safety wins the game!

Review:  We had a blast playing Buggaloop. What kids doesn’t want to play with bugs, especially a HEXBUG (we were already huge fan of those products)! This is a great game for both girls and boys, and adults for that matter. It’s fun, face paced and a great gifts to give.
