Product Description

Amazon.com

Catching fireflies--also known as lightning bugs--is a favorite nighttime summer activity for children. These magical insects and their soft, blinking auras have fascinated kids and adults for years. But instead of storing the fireflies in a jar with the top punctured to allow air, Coleman goes one step further with this Firefly Lantern.



Lid swivels for easy access.
Made of rugged plastic wrapped by wire mesh, the firefly lantern is perfect for camping trips or evening picnics that could include extensive bug searches. The lantern features a swiveling lid that opens and closes quickly and easily, and a metal handle that comes in handy during long walks or hikes, or for hanging from a tree or deck. The base of the lantern doubles as a discreet storage container with a removable bottom, but it doesn't have air holes for holding live bugs. At 8.5 inches tall (with a 2.5-by-5.25-inch base container) the lantern is lightweight and is sure to be a favorite summertime toy. And boy, it sure can hold a lot of bugs!

About Coleman
The Coleman Company has been creating and innovating products for recreational outdoor use since W.C. Coleman started selling gasoline-powered lanterns in 1900. Inventor of the hugely popular fold-up camp stove, Coleman developed a plastic liner for his galvanized steel coolers in 1957--the birth of the modern cooler--and the company has been improving their utility and design ever since. The array of products that bear the Coleman name now includes just about everything you might need to work or play outdoors, from tents and sleeping bags to boats, backpacks, and furniture.

Product Description

A safe, humane way to collect and study fireflies or any insects, the Coleman Kids Firefly Lantern is sturdily built to stand up to lots of use. The lid swivels for easy access to the main compartment, and there's even a secret storage compartment to hold other small treasures.

When I first thought of getting the Firefly lantern, I was skeptical that it was better than the traditional method of a jam jar with holes in the lid. Once I had the lantern, I am convinced it is better. Firstly, it allows the little critters to breath better since there is better airflow, and secondly it's easier to capture the Fireflies this way. It also looks a lot better than that old jam jar. Pick this up now even if you're an adult, or cherish the sweet summer darkness with your little ones.

We thought this was really cool because of the lantern shape, the swiveling top, and the wire mesh.Once we got it we relized it wasn't all it's cut out to be.It's great and it holds tons of fireflys... but the mesh it too wide.The bugs come out easily!I would understand if they didn't specify it for a certain insect, but it's a FIREFLY lantern.I had brought the lantern inside and I started to see them coming out one by one through the mesh.So if you just want to keep the bugs for a really short time then great, this is for you.But if your wanting to keep them in overnight,forget about it unless you want them crawling all over your house.

My family started camping together for the first time since our children were born this past summer. As the excitement grew for our first trip, we bought our children this Firefly Lantern. Their first night was successful catching these interesting bugs. Now there is no limit as to the type of bugs that they catch and temporarily house in the lantern. It is much more durable than any of the other containers that we have ordered with "bug kits". The bugs are easily viewed while inside. Whenever I am helping them catch their creatures, I grab this container first because it is the easiest to close! I do recommend this product.

We recently received this as a gift for my son. It is not this particular model, but similar. It is exactly what it is. A firefly lantern. My son loves catching the fireflies and putting them in the lantern. We display it on our patio table and takes great pride in "offering" us light!! He has also caught small butterflies and placed them in it. He cannot wait to go big boy camping so he can take his new toy. The model we received also included a mini light lantern, 2 glow sticks and a microscope to look at bugs up close and person. This is a GREAT buy for your LITTLE EXPLORER...and I suggest, don't bring bugs in the house just in case one is smart enough to escape!!! Enjoy.

Perfectly easy to use. So far, has housed fireflies, beetles, and caterpillars at the excitement of a [...]. The sturdy mesh allows for easier breathing and a more natural environment than the plastic enclosed ones for the bugs while in captivity. Great product, a definite recommend.
