Life Cycle of a Honey Bee
Calling all little insect lovers! Where does honey come from? What happens inside a beehive? The realistic and detailed products of the Safariology® Life Cycles make scientific concepts easier for children to grasp. Here they can touch, squeeze and play with the life cycle components of the Honey Bee from egg to adult bee.
Hardworking honeybees rapidly transition through their life cycle, with only 21 days from egg to adulthood. Bees in the larval stage are fed by workers, and once they go through metamorphosis and become adults, they join the search for nectar and pollen.
Scientific Name: Apis mellifera
Characteristics: Honeybee larvae and pupae, like those of many other insects, are almost unrecognizable compared to adult bees. These realistically sculpted figures allow a peek inside the hive.
Size and Colour: While eggs, larvae, and pupae are almost clear, the honeybee takes on its iconic black and yellow coloration when it emerges from the pupa stage as an adult. The adult bee is about the length of a computer mouse.
All Safari Ltd products meet international safety standards and are BPA free.
Age range: 4 yrs+ / Blister pack size: 19.5 x 23 cm

For customers that live in remote areas (farms etc) or do not have someone available to sign for a courier delivery, we can send your order to a Post Box via the South African Post Office.

Please note this is not a preferred option and your order will take longer to reach you. The recipient of the postal order will be responsible for collecting the order from their local Post Office.
Timeless Toys reserves the right to amend delivery prices for courier deliveries to very remote areas and for extremely heavy or peculiar sized or shaped items. We will always contact you first and will never charge extra without your consent.
If you need something in a hurry, please contact us to arrange a quote for priority courier service, although this will cost extra.
