African Dwarf Frog Eco-Aquarium From Wild Creations! (Giveaway)CONTESTS, REVIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | May 26, 2010 at 8:39 pm
There’s nothing like learning about nature than to see it in front of you. Problem with most “pets” is that the bulk of the feeding and cleaning falls on the shoulders of parents. Shoulders, I might add, that are so overloaded with responsibility that parents opt not to get a pet as they feel it too much. Still if many a parent were truthful they would admit to feeling a tinge of guilt that they could have something for their child.
When I was approached to review the African Dwarf Frog Eco-Aquarium I was a bit skeptical. I mean it is frogs. I am not squeamish… who am I kidding, I am! I have this yucky imagery when I think of frogs (I know not very nice sounding in a giveaway post but the truth). The movie Princess and The Frog did little to change that imagery. Well I lie, it did for my daughter. When I told her we would be getting frogs the first thing she said was “Mama can I kiss it so he can become a prince?” First thought was seriously did that get into my daughter’s head when I try and avoid princessy stuff, then I began to worry that my 3 year old would really want to kiss the frog.
Anyway images of scrubbing my fishbowl were dashed as I learned that this tank only needed to be cleaned once in 4 months (can someone say Yay?). All parts come in a kit, from the tank, gravel, pebbles, plant and food. By the way the food it ships with lasts a year (another Yay!). Two live dwarf African frogs are shipped overnight to you – they make sure it is a date which works with you. After getting spring water and easy assembly the frogs are ready to swim.
