Our SmartKidsPlanet initiative began in 2017 when 3 geeky and dedicated parents saw a gap in the children’s toys and games market. An opportunity was spotted while we struggled to find toys and games for our kids which enriched their minds and guided them toward science, art, math and construction. The trio then knew that their paths were set, establishing an online shop with a comprehensive range of intelligent toys for babies, children and young teenagers.

With offices based in California, our SmartKidsPlanet team enjoys a daily growth in our presence within the children’s educational toys market. We love our new place in life, and we love helping young minds with their growth and skill development, all while having as much fun as possible.

Great ant farm!

It arrived quickly and packaged well. I was able to order the ants online with the certificate came with it. The ants arrived in five days. I had to buy the sand and a local store. So far it is amazing the ants have already made several tunnels in just one day . My daughter loves it.

Cool and Easy Pets!

Super Cool! Follow instructions, set it up, and do some research to learn how to capture a queen OR just order some ants online and be prepared to be mesmerized for hours! Our 5th and 7th grader both love to watch the ants do their thing. There are some terrific videos on line of all kinds of ant farms and how to stuff, check it out, it's easy and by far the coolest thing pet wise we have ever done with our kids. Ants.... Go figure!

I'd probably buy this again.

We are very happy with this. I overfilled it (now I know!) and the ants moved the sand up to a mountain in the top where they can reach the top. The water dropper was not sealed so I put clear tape over the hole. I also think the other pusher-tool isn't good for much more than just pushing. To fish out debris, I use some hemostats.
To store the tools, I took some clear tape and made some little holders on the back of the top portion similar to the straw holders on the side of a can of air to clean out your keyboard.

Awesome Ant Farm!

We bought this for my son for his 8th birthday because it's what he said he wanted when we told him he could not get a pet snake. I chose this ant farm because it seemed to get the best reviews. My son's birthday is November 8, so we mailed off for our ants the very next day. We filled the ant farm with damp sand, pushed the cotton pieces down into the 3 holes to help them start their tunnels, then added the ants. The ants we received were harvester ants. I don't know how many there were, but only one didn't survive the trip through the mail, which I thought was amazing. We live in Texas, and it happened to be cold, so I'd recommend ordering when it is cool. They won't survive the heat for sure! Within a few hours, the ants had begun to dig tunnels. My son was fascinated! The next morning, they had 3 very long tunnels. It has now been a week, and they have quite a system of tunnels, including tunnels on the upper level. He is taking it to school tomorrow because his teacher really wants to see it. We did also follow the directions and made some covers out of black construction paper, though they don't really seem to care. We've fed them twice and added water frequently, as the directions say, and it has worked out VERY well.
