      Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Live Butterfly Garden Cup of Caterpillar:

      Picked up 9 of these kits for a school project only to find that not a single one of them contained the prepaid coupon for the caterpillars.

      Adding insult to injury, I look it up online and find complaints for this same issue as far back as a YEAR ago.

      Don't waste your time, you'll only end up dealing with a return.

      Terrible Company

      By Ticked

      from st louis. Mo

      Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Live Butterfly Garden Cup of Caterpillar:

      I called the company when they sent me the wrong number of caterpillars (they were short). They said I had ordered them "too early" in the year (I ordered in August for a delivery in April). The lady was rude and I had been working with this company for years. I had to call back another day to speak with a manager and they still messed up the order.

      Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Live Butterfly Garden Cup of Caterpillar:

      I purchased the butterfly feeder and coupon for the catapulliars so my daughter could have the experiance of releasing the butterfly's again. My daughter loves butterfly's and she was so excited when I gave it to her but when I opened it there wasn't the coupon code to order the catapilliars. We were very disappointed and since I work and have a busy schedule it has already been a week and I haven't been able to return it yet. What a waste of time and money.

        I ordered this product and it arrived at the house very quickly. I was unsure if the caterpillars would still be alive but they are now turning into butterflies and even I am excited. My only suggestion would be to have the other suggested items for this product to be shown larger on the packaging.

            Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Live Butterfly Garden Cup of Caterpillar:

            The product arrived without a coupon for the caterpillars. After I phoned customer service, Toys R Us sent a replacement BUT it also arrived without a coupon. I received an empty cardboard box 2 times!!! At this rate we were never going to get the class project started & completed before the school year ended, so I called the manfacturer directly.
            Our kindergarten teacher has been doing this project for years and this is the first time there has ever been a problem. The problem had to be coming from the manufacturer because it was the result of a package failure.

            Would be great if cert was included

            Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Live Butterfly Garden Cup of Caterpillar:

            I was very excited to find caterpillars at such a great price but was quickly disappointed when I opened the package and there was no code or certificate enabling me to order the caterpillars. I have bought and returned 3 of these now and all three packages were missing the certificate. Hope this is fixed soon.
