Colorful, Fun Bumblebee Toys

Of all the many insects, I think bees can have the most appeal for children. Boys, as well as girls, can take an interest in bees and bee toys. There is a great range available from cute and cuddly gifts, through to tough and chunky toys in bold and exciting colors!

There is a such a large range of very cool bumblebee toys around that you might not know where to begin. If so, don't depair. As a bumblebee fan, I have done the research for you. The bumblebee gifts and toys I have reviewed are popular and specially designed for boys and girls aged 5 years to 7 years old and includes bumblebee games and puzzles, bumblebee jewelry, kites, backpacks, gadgets and more.

My top suggestion for action toys is the Bumblebee Autobot in the MechTech Deluxe Transformers: Dark of the Moon series.

Transformers Bumblebee Autobot

This Camaro Concept car converts easily into a Bumblebee figure, with "mighty strength" to face any adversary! In vehicle form, he can chase down his enemies, complete with his roof-top plasma cannon. With well-honed fighting skills, he is one of the most skilled fighters the Autobots have in their squad. He will find and defeat the Decepticons, no matter where they might hide.

This fun toy converts easily from car to robot and back again. The gun attaches to either arm in robot mode, or to the roof in vehicle mode.

In "Stealth Force" mode two sculpted missile launchers and two hidden Mechtech ports are revealed. Suitable for ages 5 years and up

 

Bumblebee Autobot for Younger Children

Some of the Transformer toys have a slightly threatening air, much appreciated by the small boys I know. However, children are attracted to Transformers from quite a young age, so this is a cute and cheerful version of the Autobot we all love. The Mighty Muggs Bumblebee is made to last - a useful characteristic when your playmates are small boys or girls!

Buzzing Hand Puppet

I love these cute hand puppets. They are great fun, and can inspire the imagination. Have a look at the Bee puppet. You'll see that there are other varieties of bug puppet available too, including ladybugs, butterflies and the praying mantis..

This cute bee hand puppet has to be one of my favorites. Suitable for children from 3 years up to adults! A fun way to inspire imagination.

 

Buzzing Young Scientist?

Perhaps you'd like to inspire a young scientist or bee-keeper? The Life and Times of the Honeybee will help them find out more about the life cycle of honey bees, from the eggs, larval and pupal stages, through to emergence of the adult honey bee.

More "Gentle" Buzzy Gifts

Of course, not all children want to blast away with plasma cannons...

This lovely Bumblebee Pendant will delight any bee-loving child. It comes in it's own bee-shaped gift box, which is also collectible. Other animal pendants in the series include the Panda Bear, Frog, Dolphin and Koala Bear.

Bumblebee Games

The bumblebee toys in this section are fun games and activities, perfect for birthdays. The honeycomb game is suitable for groups of friends or family-play.

When Bobbin' Bumblebee comes for your honey, you have to press the end of the paddle nearest you to flip him away. The last player left with a honey disk wins. Suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years.

 

Dressing to Buzz

For children who like to dress up, there are some cute hats and wings available. Also great for themed parties or Halloween.
