Your comprehensive resource for ladybug facts, crafts, products & fun!
Here's some of the cool ladybug products and items in our house.
It's only fair that if we are going to have this elaborate ladybug site that we share some of the fun ladybug stuff that we have been fortunate to find and enjoy in our household.
While not our entire collection, we felt that it would be a bit reduntant to put some of the custom ladybugs or cool ladybug crafts that we have made that make up or collection as well. If you want to see those simply browse around the rest of the site. Many of our ladybug crafts have become permanent residents in our households.
Plush Rocking Ladybug
Have you ever seen a rocking ladybug before? We hadn't until this last Christmas when Grandma and Grandpa brought one over for a very lucky little girl.
It is definitely the largest ladybug in our house and it kind of resembles Mickey Mouse.
Simple Foam Ladybug Wall Decor
We've gotten a lot of mileage out of this one. This is just a simple piece of foam that you hang on the wall and it resembles a ladybug. It is perfect for a kids room or playroom which it has been in both of.
I found this in a dollar bin at Target along with a bee and a butterfly wall decoration. The kids love having in their room and it cost a staggering three dollars for all three!
Ladybug Wind-up Toy
This is a hillarious wind up toy that even the kids don't really play with. We just have it on display. All the legs move when you set it in motion.
Wooden Ladybug Roller Toy
We have two of these little wooden toys that our daughters regularly play with. They kind of resemble Libby the ladybug. If you stick them on a smooth surface like a hardwood floor and pull back on them, they take off rolling for a short distance on their own.
These ladybug slippers were a fun Christmas gift. You can find them at Kohls for around $10. They are an incredibly comfortable and soft micro plush material.
Ladybug Mixing Bowls
We found these great mixing bowls at Target. They come in a set of three (3 different sizes). As you can see from the images below, the handle is meant to be the head of the ladybug while the spots play a functional and decorative role. The bottom spots act as a stand and stablizer for the bowl.
Were we destined to like ladybugs from birth? Well maybe not us directly, but our daughter used this cute little pacifer long before we had this idea for a ladybug website. We happened to find it when we were going through her baby stuff. It's funny how things work out like that.
This is another great bargain item. We found this at our local dollar store and our daughters enjoy having it as a decoration.
This little ladybug xylophone comes as part of a collection of insect instruments for children to play with. Not pictured here is a little wand that fits into the ladybugs back for stricking the various spots / chimes.
This is a great children's backpack for school. We got this as a gift one year for our oldest daughter. It has one large pocket for holding items such as school supplies, toys, homework and whatever else our daughter decides to hide in it. It's great for a child to take on trips as well.
These are a cute and simple little ladybug novelty. They come in a little plastic "bug jar" along with bee and butterfly erasers. We found ours at the dollar store. Our children use them when they are doing drawing activites and also play with them as toys.
Soft Ladybug Toy
This is a very simple and small ladybug stuffed animal. We found this at our local dollar store and our children play with it along with their other stuffed animals.
Ladybug Giggle Toy
I think this is the one we've had the longest. This silly little ladybug does three different hillarious laughs when you press on him. It still has the original batteries which is pretty amazing being that it is been with us for over 10 years. The kids now love to play with it.
We saw this at the store one day and had to have it. Our daughters look so cute wrapped up in it after they have had a bath. The head of the ladybug acts as a hood to dry their hair and keep their heads warm. A very cute and functional ladybug item.
Wood Dancing Ladybug Toy
This is an interesting toy. It seems old fashioned in some way. We often find items like this in toy stores that sell traditional wood toys. This ladybug can be hung from something and if you pull the string at the bottom, it's legs and wings will dance.
Ladybug Wind Chime
This is a beautiful sounding Christmas gift we received. Though we like the sound it produces, we preferred to have it as an indoor decoration. It is all metal and glass and crowned with a male and female ladybug.
Ladybug Rain Catcher
As I posted this rain catcher on our site, we've been getting a lot of use out of it. There has been a lot of storms in our area lately. The rain catcher is a great focal point in our yard as well as useful at letting us know much rain we've been getting. It is constructed of metal and glass.
Plastic Clay Ladybug Craft
This is a really fun craft to make your own little ladybug miniatures or toys out of some inexpensive plastic clay. Our step by step tutorial shows you how easy making plastic ladybugs can be.
Ladybug Fake Needle Point Craft
This fun craft for kids and parents will guide you through how to make a Ladybug design that looks like needle-point using markers. A really easy, fun craft that makes a great ladybug decoration for the home.
Ladybug Kids Shirt Craft
A simple step-by-step craft that is very low cost for making a ladybug shirt for kids. We made our ladybug shirt for about two dollars!
Ladybug Paper Plate Craft
Here's a fun ladybug craft to do with kids using mostly around the house items and other low cost supplies. This works great as a classroom project as well!
