Mini Beasts and Bugs – 6 of The Best Kids Gifts for your Little Nature Lover

Little Boy wearing Beetle Applique T-Shirt by Toby Tiger | Cotswold Baby Co

Fourteen months of lockdown has made us all appreciate the Great British Outdoors more than ever, and we have enjoyed many muddy and green-fingered afternoons in the garden with our own little cubs, digging for worms and looking for bugs.

This has inspired us to launch our new Mini Beasts and Bugs Collection, full of fabulous bugs and friendly mini-beasts that we’re sure your little cubs will love!

Bertie Fox loves learning about nature and he’s been busy this Spring learning about Mini Beasts and bugs. Here are his five favourite Mini Beast facts that he’d love to share with you …

  1. A ladybird can eat more than 5,000 insects in its lifetime!
  2. Butterflies taste with their feet
  3. Grasshoppers existed before dinosaurs!
  4. The stag beetle is the largest species of insect to be found in the UK
  5. Bulldog ants can leap seven times the length of their bodies!

Check out Bertie’s new collection of buzzy bees and colourful bugs below, which feature in our gorgeous new range of clothing and gift ideas. Perfect for the little nature lover in your life!
