Bug vacuums are a big hit in our house this month. I’m such the mom of boys, huh?
I like the bug vacuums because the bugs aren’t harmed and we can see them up close. Plus, it’s not a terribly loud activity. The bug vacuum hums and the boys just have bouts of mild shouting when they’ve found a cool-looking bug.
A great instruction booklet came with this particular toy. It’s compact, informative, pocket-sized, and I haven’t seen a better quick reference in my life. I immediately thought of Tom Johnson’s nice collection of quick reference layouts and links.
Here’s the first unfold, showing 10 essential field tips.
Unfolding the interior is a real treat – it expands to about eight times the size!
Sure, you could see this as primarily a marketing or sales piece, but only one side of the interior is attempting to sell similar toys – the rest has great instructions and ideas to “Get in the field!”
Anyone else have some “field observations” to share?
