When I was a kid I had an ant farm. It was filled with sand, and I had to order the ants. They arrived in a tube, and I remember how fascinating it was to watch them interact; how they shook antennae as they passed in congenial greeting, how they tunneled and worked as a team. But my ants weren’t very space age savvy. They didn’t know about NASA or going to space, and they didn’t live in a gel that would support their lives if they so chose to take up the mission, pack their little ant trunks, and head out into the final frontier.
The ants sitting on our bookshelf today are ready for anything, including a trip into outerspace. Space Ants by Fascinations is a unique ant farm that combines learning about the underground world of ants with some space age technology. The ants in the Space Ants farm live in a gel that contains all the nutrition and building material they’ll need to live out their tunnel-digging lives in well-fed bliss. Parents can teach their kids about teamwork, nature, and technology all with the Space Ants as a great learning tool! And I gotta say it looks pretty cool on a bookshelf…
