Backyard Safari Adventure Critter Jar - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
When you first hear of the site Calendars.com I can almost bet you thought the same thing I did.  They sell calendars!

And, of course, that is true.  But wait, there's more!  Puzzles, books, games, toys and gifts are also sold on their site. 
 
Founded in 1999, Calendars.com brings together the latest Internet technology with the world's largest calendar inventory to create the Web's biggest and best calendar store. Desk calendars, wall calendars, and engagement calendars are just the tip of the iceberg. Calendars.com also has a great selection of games, puzzles and gifts.
One nifty gizmo that Calendars.com carries is the Backyard Safari Adventure Critter Jar.  It sure beats what we were using to capture lightning bugs!  Not too long ago I was frantically punching holes in a mason jar lid with an icepick while my nieces patiently waited.  It didn't work out so well and the fireflies died almost as quick as they entered the jar of death. 
 
The Backyard Safari Adventure Critter Jar is a much better option for capturing insects and critters.  Inside the plastic jar is a replicated nature scene of a tree, leaves, and bugs.  The lid itself has air holes for bugs to breathe.  A plastic cricket sets on top.  By pushing the hind end of the cricket, a chirping noise is released and mimics the sound of an actual cricket. 

Making this jar even more fun are the flashing, blinking light patterns that appear when a button is pushed.  The lights are more easily seen at night.  There's a button at the bottom of he jar to turn on the lights or turn them off.  Batteries are included.
 
This particular critter jar is an amusing way to capture bugs and view them without causing them harm.  Everyone, from the kids to the adults, have lots of fun capturing fireflies and putting them into the jar for viewing.
 
Win It!
