When I was invited to birthday parties as an elementary school lass, my go-to gift was a Sea Monkey Growing Kit. Still is a hit.
You must remember these beauties…
These “Just Add Water” aqua-pets truly baffle me. WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY AND WHY DO THEY GROW INTO LIVING THINGS WHEN YOU ADD WATER?!
Turns out, they are brine shrimp and their eggs have the ability to be dried and hatch once they get re-hydrated.
Here is a video that explains sea monkeys in full!
I so vividly remember my 100+ Sea Monkeys that died after one week of me being the best sea monkey Mom ever. RIP my ‘lil monkeys.
