But for our testers, it's the enclosed outdoor activity booklet that makes this set stand out. With this pocket-sized guide, parents can help young ones explore the outdoors by asking what do you see, smell, taste or hear? Find objects of different shapes, mimic patterns with the rake, collect and count leaves, twigs or rocks, create a scavenger hunt and more.

According to the package and the Green Toys website, this Dig & Discover set benefits NatureBridge, an organization dedicated to fostering environmental literacy.
