These Creature Peepers are wonderful!! Our 4-year-old just loves his! Before we had this, he was always bringing his newly-found "friends" into the house. Yuck!! Since buying the Creature Peeper, he still brings his 6 and 8-legged "friends" into the house- but now I am much calmer about it! He loves to catch all sorts of bugs and study them through the magnifying scopes in the top and bottom of this toy. Great fun for curious children!!

I got this along with a bug book because my boys, 4 and 5, have started expressing a lot of interest.

What's to say? The Peeper does a great job of displaying captured critter magnified from both above and below.

My minor complaint would be that the top piece doesn't fit as snugly as I would like. I added some tape around the edge to make the top less likely to come off when inconvenient.

Overall a great toy and has been holding up well so far. Approx 2 months.

I purchased this product for my 4 year old and he was thrilled when it arrived, we went bug hunting almost right away. My only complaint is that the receptacle detaches very easily so my clumsy 4 year old would release the bug without examining it yet...he'll learn though. Overall we're happy with it.

The lid doesn't secure to the unit so it is only suitable for adult use. Children do not have the coordination to keep the unit upright while trying to view the unit from the side. Unfortunately, the lid that contains the bug falls off unless the unit is held perfectly level. This is not good if you are trying to teach a child to confront their bug fears.

Everything about this Creature Peeper was done right, except that the compartment doesn't fasten shut! This is a two-piece item; the base contains the magnifier and peephole, and the creature compartment with magnifier sits atop the base, as you can see in the photo of the product. Unfortunately, the creature compartment simply sits atop the base - there is absolutely no fastener of any kind - not even tension - to secure it in place, which means that my 4-year old is CONSTANTLY upset because the slightest tip of the thing and the top falls right off, releasing whatever bugs were inside. I have to say, I continue to marvel that someone could design a product with such an insurmountable fatal flaw that results in the product being completely worthless. All they would have had to do was thread the two pieces so they could screw together, or add a couple quick-release clips or SOMETHING - even if they just sized the pieces so they would fit snugly and tension would hold them together - to secure the top to the bottom. This is one of the most unbelievably bad product designs I've seen. Unless this is for an older child - like 10 or above - who will be able to use it in an exceedingly cautious manner so as not to accidentally knock the top off - I would avoid this like the plague.

I got the creature peeper, along with a lady bug house, and a bug book for my 3 year old niece who apparently hates dirt but looovveeessss bugs- go figure : )! Well my sister was getting fed up with her bringing creepy crawlies into the house and this was a good solution. She also takes her ladybugs out of their house and can look at them closely and carry them around with her everywhere, which you know how much the little ones like to carry their things around. My sister and niece love it and she said it is quite durable. It's been pulled on, dropped, you name it and is still in the condition it was received in! Really great, educational product without the yuck factor!

Ok..so while I would definatly buy a "bug collector", I would not buy this again. The problem is that the plastic cone at the top of the unit does not screw to the base of the unit. This means that
a) when you 'parent' collect a bug. They start looking at it and then the lid comes off and the bug flies away.
b) when the child collects a bug and brings it in the house, the lid comes off and you've got a ladybug inside the house
c) when the lid comes off and you fail to see it on the garage floor because it's clear, you step on it...and yep...now the whole thing goes in the trash

And yes...A, B and C happpened to us. I would say that this sort of thing is great, but they need to add a locking mechanism between the top cone and the base of the unit.

Fustrated that others rated this unit so highly as it was the reason I had previously purchased it.

not very useful... the magnifying glass is poorly constructed and you can't really see any details when you look through it. The fact that the top of this thing doesn't screw in a little or cannot be hooked in place makes it pretty useless to carry bugs around since kids are likely to knock the top off easily.
