For the past 7 years, our house has been over run by all things girly. But now that Co is 2, cars, toy swords, and bugs are slowly creeping in. In honor of him, today's gift idea is all about the boys - Nat Geo Wild Toys from Uncle Milton.
First up is the Wild RC Snake.
My husband has a remote control car and Co is fascinated by it. It's a little hard for him to control, but he loves the buttons and the movement. This remote control snake is all of the fun of the car, but none of the difficulty.
The remote is a simple 4 button (left, right, up, down) control, so it's easy to make the snake move in the desired direction.
And move it does. The snake has light up eyes and slithers across the floor almost like the real thing. It's a fun toy to scare his sisters with.
The only downside is that the snake isn't rechargeable. It runs on batteries.
Also from Uncle Milton is the Anteater Bug Vac.
My girls like to collect potato bugs, but have never been brave enough to pick up anything else. They always want me to catch them so they can look at the bugs, but I don't really like to do it. The Little Anteater sucks up bugs in his vacuum nose and deposits them in a clear chamber in his stomach. The belly is removable which makes for better viewing, and easy bug releasing.
To Buy - The Anteater Bug Vac retails for $24.99, and the Wild RC Snake for $29.99. Both are perfect for any little nature lover on your list.
