Backyard Safari Outfitters

Backyard Safari Outfitters

In early April, I was introduced to the products from Backyard Safari Outfitters at The Blogger’s Brunch in Los Angeles. I saw their products and knew instantly that Angry Kid would love them. Seriously, what five year old boy wouldn’t love playing in the outdoors with critters?

When I was approached to do a review of their products, I immediately said, “YES”! I was already a fan of their products since I brought home some of their products from The Blogger’s Brunch.

While I was at work one day, Angry Kid found the box from Backyard Safari Outfitters in our master bedroom closet.  I was saving it for a day when he was extra good.  Really does that even happen in this house? Angry Kid was immediately obsessed with the cargo vest.  He may have worn it when he was not at preschool, for a week straight.  He wore it twice to Disneyland.  It has a ton of pockets, which are perfect for adventures, and tiny Lego figures also.

Angry Kid prepared for his Backyard Safari

Doesn’t he look like he’s ready for battle or what? Angry Kid is armed with his cargo vest, a bug vacuum, and a mega view periscope. He was prepared to go on safari in our front yard rather than our backyard.  Our backyard is a concrete jungle.

Looking over the fence with his Backyard Safari Outfitters Periscope

Notice the precision and crouching while he is checking out things in his periscope.  He was impressed with everything that he could see.  The periscope also extends over 4 ft. It also has a water tight section for immersible viewing.

Using a bug vacuum on his safari

Angry Kid was shocked at the power on this bug vacuum.  I have no idea what he was using it on though.  He came back with a ton of leaves and sticks.  I think the bugs were hiding from him.

Angry Kid really loves the products from Backyard Safari Outfitters.  It is also nice to see him playing outside in nature.  I tend to get worried when he spends too much time inside playing with his Legos or electronics.  He would have played out there all night but it was getting cold.  I told him that he could hunt for bugs another day.

These toys range from prices of $4.99 and up.  They can be purchased at Toys R Us, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Target, Amazon, and Summit Toys.

Backyard Safari Outfitters can be found on Twitter as @BYSOufitters and on Facebook.

Disclosure:  I was provided with these items by TeamMom and Backyard Safari Outfitters for review purposes and play.  I was not influenced in any way to write this review.  Angry Kid liked going on safari for bugs and stuff…he is a boy after all.

dude! what AWESOME boy toys!! We *had* the bug vacuum... it may or may not have been left out in the rain, once. or twice. anyway--- I think my kid (porbably both of them, but especially the 4 year old) would LOVE the vest with the pockets- hes a huge fan of taking things places. cars, combs, rubber bands, sunglasses, whatever he can get his hands on. Ill have to look into this!

My kid has the binoculars and they are a HUGE hit. He got the bug vacuum for his birthday and I may have hidden it from him, because bugs are not my thing. Maybe I should reconsider that!

This is such a great idea! My boys have their birthdays coming up and this would be a HUGE hit! Looks like Angry Toddler is having a blast searching for critters!
