TOOB - Insects
Add these critters to any sensory bin to teach new vocabulary and encourage discovery and creativity!
14 pieces per TOOB®.
Crawly, squirmy, and a little wiggly, this Toob lets you hold 14 iconic insects in the palm of your hand, including a caterpillar, dragonfly, centipede, grasshopper, housefly, ladybug, spider, honeybee, cockroach, scorpion, praying mantis, ant, and 2 butterflies.
Characteristics: Insects are amazing creatures, though it might be best to study realistic models rather than the real thing! Unique, accurate, and colorful, these models are exceptional for learning, imaginative play, or skittering across your desk and nightstand as cool pieces of décor – although it may be best to keep the scorpion somewhere safe.
Size and Color: 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, this Toob is a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler and contains figurines of some of most common creepy crawlers found around the world that range from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall. Artfully crafted, precisely hand painted, and true to life, these insect figurines, like the leaf green praying mantis or the sky blue butterfly, could fool even the keenest eye!

The number of known insect species ranges from between six to ten million and researchers believe they could amount for up to 90% of animal life forms on Earth. Although we couldn’t fit that many figurines into a single Toob, we were able to include some of the most quintessential representations of the Insecta class. Be careful, they may try to scurry out of sight and hide when you aren’t looking!Recommended Age: 3+
