This life cycle metamorphosis specimen set allow children to get up close, see real-life examples and examine them in detail. Each specimen is encased in indestructible resin and can safely be used by young children, something they usually wouldn’t see from such a small distance. They are an excellent resource to promote scientific inquiry and investigation. The Mini Beasts work great on a light-box or in combination with a magnifier.
