Welcome to Owl Brand Discovery Kits


Thanks for your interest in sharing your child's science journey with Owl Brand Supply Company and our family of online resources -- OBDK, Kidwings, Sherlock Bones, and Passport to Wildlife. Owl Brand Supply Company is a family-owned business that began in 1996 as a wholesale science supply business. As the internet grew in the '90s, so did the opportunity to build a company that works to help teachers meet the needs of young science enthusiasts in classrooms worldwide.

Owner and founder Chris Anderson imagined an exciting and fun way to use owl pellets to create hands-on learning. What was once called Owl Brand Kits became Owl Brand Discovery Kits in 2005, and a few short years later, the most searched website in the world on the subject of barn owl pellets became part of the Owl Brand family — Kidwings. The Virtual Pellet is still one of the most visited links in our Resources and remains a popular free activity for kids everywhere -- about 30,000 every month!

Who knew that distance learning would become the centerpiece of this decade? That prompted our team to develop Passport to Wildlife and the newest version of the Virtual Pellet — the Sherlock Bones Mystery Lab, which features a narrated online owl pellet.

EVERYONE should have the chance to dissect owl pellets! Go there now...no, finish reading, then go there.

At OBDK, we are not just about selling products — although we are very good at it. We take service to others seriously; it is the focus of our hard work. sherlock bones logoWhether our efforts are in a classroom or a nonprofit that benefits from our work, we aspire to be a light in this world. Our goal has always been to leverage our success to create resources, help nonprofits, and meet teachers in the classroom. 

Whether you have found us online at Amazon, eBay, our websites, or met us at a regional science event such as Science in the Park and Passport to Wildlife, our goal is that the young people would be inspired to be the next generation of wildlife enthusiasts and stewards.

Thank you for investigating OBDK and learning more about where your barn owl pellets originate and how they can impact the world for good.
