have ordered my dh this ant works for his birthday. it looks really good. i know my kids will love it too. dd1 is really into watching what little insects do, the last few weeks they have had catapillers turn into butterflies in their classroom.
I've got an ant farm, I bought it for my ds, but I ended up having more fun than he did. Amazing how they make so many tunnels. If you can catch a little bug or spider, pop it in the farm and watch how the ants go crazy.
