Get Ready To Bug Out This Valentine’s Day

The Children’s Museum in West Hartford invites the public to name a bug after a loved one–or not so loved one.


They’re back!

Looking for that perfect gift for your Valentine? Diamonds are so passé. Chocolates are too predictable. Why not really wow them? Why not get them a love bug?

For the low price of $10, lovers can drive your special someone a little buggy. What better way to say, “I love you,” than with the gift of a Madagascar hissing cockroach? Or let someone know how much you dig them by naming one of our composting worms after them?

Maybe you’d like show some love by naming one of our crickets after the one who makes your heart chirp?

No need to squirm, all naming gifts come with a certificate to be delivered to electronically by Feb. 13, just in time to give to your Valentine.

Alone?  Had a horrible breakup? Hate Valentine’s Day? We’ve got the lovelorn covered. For a donation of $20 they can name one of our Feeder Cockroaches after an ex- the one who they CAN live without. They’ll be treated to a short video of our resident animals enjoying themselves and helping heal that broken heart.

Their tax deductible donation will not only help The Children’s Museum, but will help them stay in your love’s good graces, or let their ex know exactly how you feel. Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. What better way to celebrate than with a unique gift.
