Bought this for my grandson for his birthday. My daughter sent in the certificate and got the caterpillars. Within 2 weeks they had turned into beautiful butterflies. My grandsons were fascinated with the whole process and were so excited when they turned into the butterflies. Great Gift. Would recommend it strongly.

I purchased this for my granddaughter, and was a little dismayed to find that basically it consisted only of a net "cage" and a coupon to purchase, for an additional $5.00 "shipping" charge, the caterpillars - which morph into butterflies - and a can of food. Seemed like a lot of money for just a net. But the overall idea is a good one, and my granddaughter will love it. (I ordered the live bugs to be delivered around her birthday; it's nice that you can decide when you want them.)

              This is the most awesome thing for a child to be able to witness. The product worked just exactly the way they said it would. My granddaughter was delighted. I went back and bought 4 more of them for my other grandkids out of town, and also those of friends. TOP NOTCH!!!

                  This is so cool. My 5 year old son got it for his birthday and he and his 2 year old brother loved every second of it. The metamorphosis process was beyond cool to see. We bought one for a friend we love ours so much.

                    This is great for when you find the caterpillars already in your yard. I wish there was a zipper on the bottom of the cage so you can clean out the mess and caterpillar parts they discard while making the crystalis. I would recommend putting a papertowel on the bottom as they create a lot of waste. There is an added fee to order the butterfly larva if you want to order from the company.

                        We got this for my daughter for her 5th birthday. She's learned a lot about butterfly growth cycles and is excited to be able to watch it herself at home!
