I have always been a big fan of every to do with nature and I am always encouraging me kids to get hands on. So when we was asked to review both My Living World Worm World and My Living World Pocket Microscope I got a little bit excited. I used to have a microscope myself when I was younger and I loved it. And I also remember creating own own worm world at school when I was in year 3. I wanted to make one at home but my mum wouldn’t let me. But now there are specifically made toys that allow you to do this at home without all the mess.
Worm World comes with a clear see-through container and cardboard cover. 4 packs of sand (2 plain sand, 1 red sand and 1 yellow sand). All you need to do to set your Worm World up, is to get some soil from your garden and layer the soil with the different coloured sands.
Collect some worms from your garden too or you can order some online with instructions how to do this in the box. Place your worms in your Worm World and place some leaves on top. Cover with the cardboard cover, as the worms like it dark. Then you can peek at them every so often and check the trails they have made trough the sand and soil.
The Pocket Microscope is handy and also easy to carry around. It needs batteries to work the light. The Pocket Microscope comes with some tweezers, 4 containers, some glass slides, labels and two specimen slides.
One of the slides has different textiles in it and the other has parts of a grasshopper in it to study.
We actually liked to use this with the Worm World and look at the different types of soil we collected. We also looked at leaves and bark.
