Pretending to be bugs while wearing the FireAnt & Mantis Buzzerks

So my kids have been running around the house all week wearing their Buzzerks glasses from Insect Lore.  We received one pair of each – a Mantis, Hornet and FireAnt.  My kids quickly determined which belonged to which kid (the third pair, the Hornet was too tight for their heads – my kids have big heads) and they’ve been off and running with them ever since.

These glasses give children a bugs eye view of the world.  Use the “bug eye lense” inside of the glasses to see the world as a bug does or not.  My kids have been doing both – the bug eye lenses can fold back to make these just regular glasses as well. They’re $9.99 each and 6+ (although they are just fine for my almost 4 year old to use).  Get them on the Insect Lore website.

Giveaway:  Insect Lore will send ONE winner one set of Buzzerks (one in each insect) for the winner and one set for the winner’s teacher, for a total of 6 pieces.  (retail value $59.94). Winners must be residents of the United States. How fun is that?  3 for your kids and 3 for your child’s classroom.  Just comment to enter – which pair do you like the most?   One winner will be selected at random after October 27th. Extra Entries:  Tweet about this giveaway.  Suggested tweet:  I just entered to win 6 pairs of @insectlore bug glasses @mommieswstyle



  2. Well, I know some little ladies who would love them!!! Even I would like to see what it’s like looking through the eyes of an insect!!!

  3. Omg how cute!! My 3 boys would love these! My fave is the mangos, but the hornet is my 5yo Max’s favorite…though he’s got a big head so that may not work for him lol.

  4. These are so cool. Our fav is the fire ant . This would be so perfect to win the class my son is in is studying insects. Each month they do a new one for science. The kids would really enjoy seeing life like a bug does!

  5. the MANTIS, for sure!!!! how awesome – and my kids love praying mantises (ever since my husband hatched several hundred praying mantis eggs in our kitchen :0 )

  6. My twin girls would love this! I love the blue hornet!!

  27. OK… bug geek here. I doubt you really see how a bug sees with these. (What a bug sees is more like an impressionist painting…)

    That said, I have three boys who would love these. (And my oldest’s teacher would flip for them, too!)

  28. Really, just ewww! But my boys would think these are so great! I can’t imagine what a hit we would be giving them to my son’s kindergarten classroom, too!

  29. These look so cool – what kid wouldn’t love these! I’d love to be able to give something to my daughter’s kindergarten class.

  30. I like the mantis. I think my boys would love this, they are always pretending to be some kind of animal, now they could be bugs.
