It’s summertime which means while it is not all that hard to get my kids outdoors- what I’d prefer is to get them outdoors doing something constructive as opposed to destructive ( if you have a boy- you’ll FULLY understand this quandry of mine!)
Which is why I’m gaga for Backyard Safari Outfitters line of gear , as their products make it pretty darn easy to get your kids up and outdoors exploring nature in a completely educational way that is pure FUN and exploring at a whole new level. It’s not the typical let’s go outdoors and look at the grass and flowers- rather these products encourage them to use their noggins and look at the outdoors in a completely new and different way.
One of my favorite features of this line of gear is the fact that EACH Backyard Safari product comes with a Pop-Up Field Guideâ„¢ which features a unique in-the-field mission in line with the toy’s specific play pattern. With their Pop-Up Field Guides children can learn to be Bug Wranglers, Bird Watchers, and more! So when kids take the gear out of the box- they aren’t staring into space- wondering what to do with it– they actually have a plan, a mission to explore and of course this one exploration, will organically lead to others ( trust me- my six year old can and has spent a solid THREE hours outdoors breaking in his gear, and when he comes home from day camp each day- the first thing he asks is.. .”Mommy can we go outside with our Backyard Safari stuff and be explorers?!” And how can a mama say no to that?!
Some of my fave new Backyard Safari Outfitters products ( including their new Patch Program) include but are are definitely not limited to these:
A Base Camp Shelter YOUR BASE OF OPERATIONS!
This rugged shelter is lightweight, easy to assemble and features storage spaces for all your little explorer’s Essential Field Gear. Over 40″ tall, it’s even large enough for several Backyard Safari Kids to set up their own instant base camp in the fieldâ€¦all year round.
Hiking Stick GET ON THE TRAIL!
This unique Backyard Safariâ„¢ HIKING STICK is the perfect piece of personal gear that’s indispensable to your little explorer on the trail. It has a unique hand-carved look on a sturdy natural looking walking stick that is a stout 48″ tall. It will help one keep a steady foot on the trail and is useful for poking and prodding those hard-to-reach places!
The Backyard Safari Outfitters Essential Cargo Vest This essential piece of field gear is rugged, and tough enough for all your outdoor adventures. Plenty of cargo pockets means lots of space to load up. Six D-Rings and two shoulder epaulets let your little explorer clip and hang more essential gear. A large zipper pocket stores your explorer’s trusty binocs and a clear-view chest pocket stores their Pop-Up Field Guidesâ„¢. The back of the vest also features a one-size-fits-all adjustable strap and two extra mesh pockets for storing extra gear. This is a must-have for every BACKYARD SAFARIâ„¢ kid.
