My girls spend the majority of their waking hours in our backyard. It’s their favorite place to be and they spend hours out there making up games, swinging, and role playing with each other. With summer in full swing, I’m always on the lookout for new backyard products that can keep their little imaginations going, and thanks to Backyard Safari Outfitters, our girls are now equipped with new backyard essentials to keep the fun going!
The girls have been long time fans of the Lazer Bug Vac, where they can capture creepy crawly friends and take a closer look at them, as well as the Mini Lantern, which Lil’ Pea seems to tote everywhere these days! Just a few weeks ago we received a few NEW items from Backyard Safari Outfitters and the girls haven’t stopped playing with them since!
Base Camp Shelter
This indoor/outdoor fort is lightweight and easy to assemble with the three included tent poles. Standing over 40″ tall, the Base Camp Shelter is large enough for several children to play in and features plenty of storage spaces and pockets to keep their gear nice and neat. The Base Camp Shelter also comes with a bonus Mini Lantern with carabiner that attaches near the top of the shelter, as well as a collectible Base Camp Expedition iron-on patch and Pop-Up Field Guide! Retails for $39.99.
This netting goes hand in hand with the Base Camp Shelter and will allow young explorers to observe nature without being caught! Made of rip-stop nylon and measuring in at 5′ x 8′, the netting is stretchable and stands up to wet weather…ahem…er…sprinklers. Retails for $14.99.
3-in-1 Compass Tool
This handy tool will show young explorers the way and is sure to lead them to a new adventure each and every time. It’s attached to a self-widening, retractable carabiner, and a push button release allows the spring loaded lid to pop up, revealing a field compass to keep you on track. This super cool piece of gear also has a high visibility LED signal light that allows children to flash Morse code messages! The kit includes a collectible Expedition One iron-on patch and a Pop-up Field Guide. Retails for $14.99.
The Expedition Two hiking stick allows young explorers to keep a steady foot while on the trail. It’s useful for poking and prodding hard to reach places, and various objects. The stick has a distinctive hand carved look on a natural looking stick that stands 48″ tall. It comes with a collectible Expedition Two iron-on patch and the Expedition Two Pop-up Field Guide. Retails for $14.99.
This is where Backyard Safari Outfitters really stands out among it’s peers. Many of the items offered by Backyard Safari include an exclusive collectible patch. The pop-up field guide is full of mission to complete using the new gear and once children complete their missions, Mom and Dad can reward them with the special patch! The patches can be ironed onto Backyard Safari’s Cargo Vest as a proof of their completed missions.
A BIG Thank You to Backyard Safari Outfitters for our official “Bird watching station”! Seriously, does it get any cooler than this?
