Bug’s World Marbles offers a new perspective on the creepy
crawly world of insects. Four assorted tiny creatures
preserved in 15/16" transparent resin marble that make
them observable from all points of view. The marble
doubles as a magnifying glass, allowing you to examine
your bugs closely without being bitten or stung! Each
tube contains four different insects. There are many
different insects to collect!

My grandsons are fascinated by all things creepy. These marbles fit the bill perfectly. What they don't know is that they are going to learn something.
These things are perfect to get kids interested in science.

These are light as a feather and they definitely have that fun eek factor, so good for looking at which seems to be one of the main attractions for the kids at my daughter's school.
Some are better than others. One we got is a giant blk bug with its body and legs hitting both sides of the marble, while one is kind of just a brown indiscernible flat blob floating not that large in the center.
Anyway, as a group, I am sure my daughter will love showing them to everyone at school.
