Jason and Spencer love to play outside, however since I’m not an outdoorsy type they don’t get much chance. To make up for that I try to be sure they have fun things to do. One of my favorite “outdoor toys” companies is Backyard Safari. Backyard Safari has a ton of camping style toys for kids. Think compasses, scoop nets and a lot of other fun gear like that. Our favorite piece is the Bird Watcher Field Kit. It contains a pair of binoculars, a tripod and some neato bird callers!
From the website:
The BIRD WATCHER FIELD KIT comes with everything you need for birdwatching in the field. In this complete kit you get a pair of 5 x 30 power binoculars with 2.5″ lens shades, a lightweight tripod that can be tabletop or handheld, plus three different bird callers (Reed, Whistle & Chirp) for attracting every kind of bird. From Loons to Hawks, Geese to Ducks, and just about every backyard song bird.
Comes with collectible BIRD WATCHER iron-on patch & POP-UP FIELD GUIDE™ with in-the-field missions and two large ‘pop-up’ pages illustrating dozens of birds helping you to identify specimens in the field.
Jason uses these kid friendly binoculars for everything, even just riding in the car. He is out to find a rare bird (a Bluejay) and he won’t rest until it’s found. He will go in the backyard, sit in a chair and wait until conditions are just right. Then, he’ll choose the right bird caller and he’ll tweet. It’s a waiting game and the elusive Bluejay is still on our list of wanted suspects.
Backyard Safari is a great company that has quality toys your kids will love. They’ve also never had a product recall. Backyard Safari is all about safety. They are one of the only companies to maintain a representative member on the Toy Industry Association’s Safety Standards and Technical Committee. As a parent this means a lot to me.
