The Discover with Dr. Cool Real Insect Excavation Kit

My boys officially love Discover with Dr. Cool products. In September we reviewed the How To Pan For Gold Kit and now we were sent a Real Insect Excavation Kit. In this kit the boys were able to dig through a green beetle to find not 1 but 3 real insects! Don’t freak out the insects are not alive, although I’m sure the boys would have loved that ;). The boys found a Scorpion, Spiny Spider and a Fortune Beetle. These insects each come encased in a glass bubble.

It took the boys about 30 minutes to find the insects, The cool thing is that the digging didn’t ruin the bubbles the insects come in. Once the boys found them, they just rinsed them off and the insects were ready to be inspected.


The Real Insect Excavation Kit is very complete with a brush, a pick like tool and a magnifying glass. It also has an activity booklet and an adventure guide, which the boys loved!

The boys really enjoyed the dig, and are now great fans of Discover with Dr. Cool products. You can visit the Discover with Dr. Cool website to see all of the great things they have and to order kits for the little explorers on your holiday lists.

Connect with Discover with Dr. Cool on their website, Facebook  & Twitter.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    These look really neat for kids. Us, well we literally go out and excavate insects (typical adventure when you’re a tarantula breeder and all-around bug-crazy house!)
