Tweber Little Sprout's Flower Press

Tweber Little Sprout's Flower Press

Fall 2004 Toys
Ages: 4 - 8 yrs.
Manufacturer: TWC of America, Inc.
Price: $17.00
Review:
Comprised of eight pieces of corrugated cardboard, sandwiched between rigid covers, the back cover is made of quarter inch plywood and the front cover is molded plastic. Flowers are pressed when two large-knob screws are tightened. The nylon handle should be installed before the covers are secured.

We took the flower press on a multi-family camping trip with a group of boys and girls aged 5-11. Prepared with activities for these budding naturalists, we sent the group to find and collect all the wildflowers they could. We identified them using a wildflower guidebook, then placed them in the press. After a few days, we had colorful, pressed and dried reminders of our trip.
