"This August, National Geographic and Uncle Milton Industries have teamed up to create an exciting new line of kids toys, puzzles and games based on the popular Nat Geo WILD network dedicated entirely to animals. Products will debut exclusively at more than 200 Barnes & Noble stores and BN.com this summer, followed by a rollout to major toy retailers across North America this fall.
The Nat Geo WILD line roars into retail this summer with products inspired by and
patterned after majestic and iconic animals of the jungles, rain forests, oceans and Arctic. They
include the Anteater Bug Vac™, the Curl and Coil Snake Light™, the Big Dig Bear Claw™ and a
range of colorful puzzles and games featuring photographs of these amazing animals in their
natural environments. The innovative design of the Anteater Bug Vac™, a bug catcher vacuum
sculpted to look like a real anteater, was recently featured on the “Today” show and was also
selected by toy industry experts at the 2012 American International Toy Fair as a Top 10 item that
will inspire play in children this year. Additional innovative and colorful toys, puzzles and games
are already planned for 2013.
National Geographic’s net proceeds from the sale of these products will support vital
exploration, conservation, research and education programs."
What we thought: Uncle Milton is one of our favorite educational toy companies. We can always count on them to have a large variety of quality toys for every age group that actually promote learning. They have proved this yet again with this new line of Nat Geo Wild toys. We were able to review the Big Dig Bear Claw and the Curl and Coil Snake Light. These toys are both functional tools that are realistic looking and a lot of fun to play with. They are both sturdy and have been able to withstand everything our 3 and 6 year old "testers" have thrown their way:) The kiddos love both of these and play with them regularly. A and D are both really into to animals these days and love watching shows on the National Geographic channel, so I'm really excited that Uncle Milton has paired with them to create these really neat toys. ABCD Diaries gives the Nat Geo Wild toys an A+!
