I got these sandwich bags with bugs on them for my 7 year old nephew who is very much into bugs, insects and other slimy, gross creatures. I knew he would love it! And he did. It makes lunch time a bit more entertaining, well at least for a 7 year old.

Oh and I think Fred products are absolutely genius and so much fun.
