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.

Purchased online for a birthday present. I read all the descriptions and was shocked when I picked up the box and it said the box included a voucher for the caterpillars (which I already knew) but one had to send in $7.95 to ship the caterpillars! The box in the picture had no such information. I'm sure the net is great and my children have enjoyed catching caterpillars and raising them, which is why I thought this would be such a great gift. They should include the price of shipping in the price of the item or include the additional shipping cost in the product description.

                  This has definitely been a great experience with my kids who are currently really into The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. I was probably just as excited as my kids. I'm 29 and I'd never seen this process so it was definitely very interesting for me! This net comes with a voucher for a free cup of 5 caterpillars. All you have to do is pay shipping which is about $8 and you receive them in about 3 days. Once you receive them you just watch them grow and once they have hung themselves in their cocoon you transfer them to the net and watch them transform into butterflies. Once you're ready, you set them free!

                    This is a fantastic idea to enable you and your children watch one of life's miracles from inside your home! Very easy process and parts included are perfect for setup. Everything arrives intact when sending for caterpillars! It's an unbelievable journey to watch them cocoon and go through the metamorphosis! Releasing them into nature is the most exciting part. This is an unforgettable product.
