If you like bugs, you'll love this fun little box filled with a variety of informative and entertaining items. Included in the small box: one plastic bug, one bug bookmark and lots of bug stickers. Along with these goodies, you get a sheet to record and keep track of bugs you see and four different booklets about bugs. In Wonderbugs, there are unusual facts. (For example, did you know there are 90,000 different species of flies?) The Handbook teaches you about bugs, the Projects book offers lots of different bug-related activities and the Challenge booklet is full of games. As a stocking stuffer or birthday gift, this is a great value for the money.
