Henry and Catherine would just love to get any one of these from the jolly fellow in red.
1. Barbie Mariposa Doll
2. Personalised bug cutlery
We love this for the cute bee, butterfly and ladybird motifs. Nice and chunky for little hands, perfect for small children and you can get their name engraved on it (as long as they’re not over 15 letters – bit tough on little Wulfweardsworth or Talula-Does-The-Hula-From-Hawaii but we’re sure they’ll think of an abbreviation!)
3 Insect tattoos
Maybe David Dimbleby should have gone with one of these – all guaranteed to have the correct number of legs!
For the younger ones, there are cute little bugs:
4 Bug facts book
5 Butterfly farm kit
for kids 4+ to grow their own butterflies from eggs (adult supervision recommended). Live adults can be released into the wild! You can replenish with caterpillars foraged from the garden, or mail order more eggs.
6 Bee cake toppers
What could be sweeter than a cake made by a bee? Well, until our Apis friends learn to cook, this is the next best thing. Add the finishing touch to your Bake Off creations with these rice paper toppers
7 Spider bath bomb
8 Creepy crawly gardening gloves
Cute gloves for helping in the garden – perhaps when you’re installing an insecthouse? One size fits 4-7 years.
9 Cuddly snails
10 Metal origami woodlouse
Yup – you read that right. A metal origami woodlouse. Not seen one of those before, but now we reckon we’ve seen everything. Probably not suitable for young children – lots of fiddly bits and sharp edges involved, plus a fair amount of patience required. But we can guarantee no one else will have bought them one!
