The Bug Hotel by Tender Leaf. Get ready for an adventure with the Tender Leaf Bug Hotel – a plastic-free toy that's a miniaturised version of the insect hotels we create to support our buzzing friends in the wild!

More than just a toy, it's an educational tool that introduces children to the fascinating world of insects and their diverse names found in nature.

Designed to resemble a real-life bug hotel, this playful set goes above and beyond, featuring 13 common garden bugs illustrated on plywood and housed in their very own bug hotel. From the snail and butterfly to the stag beetle and scarab beetle, each piece comes with its name printed underneath, turning learning into a hands-on experience.

The fun doesn't stop there – this bug hotel offers a shape-sorting element with a shadow illustrated on the display box, adding an extra layer of engagement. The Bug Hotel also comes with a sliding lid for a touch of realism, mimicking a genuine bug hotel.

Not only does this toy spark curiosity about insects, but it also promotes environmental awareness by showcasing a plastic-free design. Let your little ones explore the wonders of nature and learn about the insects that share our world with the charming Tender Leaf Bug Hotel – where education meets eco-friendly play.

Suitable from age 3+

Customer Reviews


I just want to say a huge thank you for wrapping all the gifts I ordered for my daughter's birthday. You saved me both money and lots of time. Much, much appreciated.

Thank you so much for going the extra mile to make this gift extra special. Your company is exactly what I was looking for and I am so grateful that I was told about Make Believe Co. So many places in SA do not offer such beautiful, high quality, long lasting toys. I will 100% be ordering from you guys again for any little one I know.

Just wanted to compliment you on your service. I just placed an order for a train set and some board games a few hours ago and I have already received the tracking number. That is fantastic service. Thank you so much.

I live on a farm and had my parcel delivered just the day after I had ordered. It was like a miracle. Incredible service and my son is going to love his beautiful bunny.
