**Disclosure: Our family was provided the frogs & their home for this review. No other compensation was received. The opinion below is that of my own & of my children's - your opinion may vary.
When thinking of a family pet, how often do you think of a frog? Not often, right? I can't tell you how many times we have tried fish. While they are pretty and fun to watch, they sure can be a hassle and a mess at times. And who usually gets stuck cleaning up after the family pet? That's right, Mom & Dad! Usually they don't last long either - at least in our house they didn't.
Wild Creations, best known for its award-winning EcoAquarium, is eager to expand young minds with smart ways to play! Smart being the key word. The company’s best-selling EcoAquarium comes with two African Dwarf frogs (about an inch long) that are both simple to take care of and fun to watch. Wild Creations’ unique EcoAquariums provide all of the benefits of a large aquarium environment in a small, easy-to-maintain aquarium. Each EcoAquarium is a complete aquatic ecosystem environment that requires no additional chemicals, filters, or aeration. Just feed the frogs twice a week and change the water every three months (that's only 4 times a year!) using fresh, bottled spring water, available at any grocery store.
My kids loved the little dwarf frogs! While this is not huge - it is hassle free and gives the kids something to care for will little effort. It's a great starter pet! The company shipped more than 1 million African Dwarf frogs nationwide last year, and the EcoAquarium won a coveted nomination for the 2010 Toy Industry Association Specialty Toy of the Year. We have this sitting on our living room table (where our family spends most of our time). All the kids get amazed and amused at it!!
What I love about it -
- The aquarium only needs to be cleaned once every 3 months
- Easy to feed / Feeds only twice a week
- No harsh chemicals are used
- Teaches kids responsibility
- Affordable - starting at only $19.99
- Love that their a very social company!!
