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.

          Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden:

          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 used this for some monarch caterpillars that we got from our local nature center. It was perfect. We could see them no matter where they were in it.

                      I got one of these for my first niece, and when the second one was old enough, she got one too. Both times I experienced great service from the company with plenty of support and instructions to grow the butterflies.
                      The caterpillars will arrive all tiny in the cup and grow to butterflies. Great for kids to watch and learn. I recommend it for either a child or even a class project.

                      Only one caterpillar survived the 10 day shipping and handling that you suggested for an extra $5, on top of the purchased kit that we bought. We were very disappointed.

                        This is a great little kit. Everything is included to grow the butterflies and take care of them. My daughter and son downloaded a cure journal and calendar to track the process and it's been a great learning experienced and science experiment for them. After these butterflies fly away, we plan to get more caterpillars and do it again! Great price and directions are clear!
