Searching for a unique birthday or Christmas gift? Want an educational night light for your child? Just reviewing ant farms? If so, I highly recommend the Antworks Space Age Ant Habitat.
My four year old son is very fascinated with just about all creatures, especially little bugs. In fact, when he was nearly three years old, he found a bug outside and announced it was his new best friend. I then knew that he would love to have his own personal ant farm.
He received the Antworks Space Age Ant Habitat as a gift. He absolutely loves it! I am very pleased with the product. The ant farm has helped him learn more about ants, ignited his curiosity for bugs, and was a wonderful show and tell item for his preschool.
You can purchase it from some toy stores and many online retailers. The ants do not come with the ant farm. You have to order them separately. Ours arrived in just a few days. They came in a little tube in a padded envelope.
The kit also comes with a magnifying glass to help see the ants in more detail. This magnifying glass has proven to be a great tool for my son for looking at everything, not just ants.
The ant farm comes with an attached light, which also helps to see the ants more clearly. The ant farm doubles as a unique night light. My son enjoyed watching them at night, although I’m sure they kept him up a little.
The ants live in a gel. You and your child can watch them dig. The gel provides all of the food necessary for the ants, so you do not have to feed them.
My son’s first set of ants lived for about two months. They can, however, live for up to three months.

The only con I can think of this product, is that the ants do not live forever. However, you can always order (or collect) more.
Overall, I give the Antworks Space Age Ant Habitat a five star rating. If you’re looking for an educational and unique gift, I highly recommend this product. My four year old son loves it, and I”m sure your child will as well.
