We love the idea behind these kid-friendly seeds from Gardener's Supply. From the product description: "Powerful Plants uses lively characters to get kids connected with the outdoors and to help them make healthy food choices. Six packs of vegetable seeds have playful graphics that tap into kids' imaginations. Download the free app, and then aim your phone or tablet at the seed pack and the characters on the seed packets come to life to share growing and cooking tips and other fun facts. Seed packets include Tom Thumb heirloom shell pea, Daucus red-cored chantenay carrot, Mammoth sunflower, Casper pumpkin, Snow White cherry tomato, and Lacinato (dino) kale."
