Get Kids Outdoors This Summer with Backyard Safari Outfitters Gear!

Last summer, I wrote about Backyard Safari Outfitters because they make a wonderful line of kids’ gear designed to get them outdoors and exploring nature. So, I was thrilled to find out that they’ve introduced even more great products this year! My boys had the opportunity to try out several of them. The biggest hit was the Base Camp Shelter! Standing over 40 inches tall, this shelter is just the right size for my twins and their Pokemon card binders. Check it out!

The day after I took these photos, they even fit another friend in there with them. I love that the shelter was so easy to assemble. For once, I didn’t have to call on my husband to put something together for me! The Base Camp Shelter even comes with a bonus Mini Lantern with carabiner so you can hang it from the top. There are also mesh pockets on the side for kids to store their “stuff.” And this special edition kit comes with a collectible Base Camp Expedition iron-on patch!

I love Backyard Safari Outfitters’ new Patch Program. Kids can wear their Backyard Safari Outfitters cargo vest (pictured on my son above), and get patches to iron on with the purchase of each product. My boys are Cub Scouts, so a new Patch Program was of great interest to them!

Other new products from Backyard Safari Outfitters include:

Camouflage Net

Expedition Two Hiking Stick

Expedition One 3-in-1 Compass Tool

The 3-in-1 Compass Tool enables kids to use Morse code (there’s a guide included, as well as the symbols on a sticker inside the lid), plus use a compass and a magnifying lens! My boys have had a lot of fun playing with all of these products. And Backyard Safari Outfitters items also come with Pop-Up Field Guides to help your little adventurers discover the great outdoors!

I hope you’ll check out the fantastic products from Backyard Safari Outfitters through the links below. Other items include a Lazer Bug Vac, a Bird Watcher Field Kit, a Butterfly Habitat, a Reptile Hunter’s Super Throw Net, and much, much more. Backyard Safari Outfitters products are available at Toys R Us, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com, and Target. Your little ones are sure to spend plenty of time exploring outdoors with their own safari gear!

  1. Very cool! And I agree...nice to have something easy to put together myself when my husband isn't around. We live on the edge of the woods and this would make a neat "base camp" for kids to go on hunting excursions into the woods. :)

  2. How cute is that? My son would have been all over that.
