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.

      Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden Caterpillar to Butterfly Growing Kit:

      The caterpillars came in the mail quickly after I ordered them. They were all alive and well. My son really enjoyed watching them grow. We had to have them on the table for mealtimes everyday. We had a shaking incident right after they cacooned resulting in one death, but the other 4 butterflies emerged just fine. My son loved watching them fly around for a couple of days and then we set them free! Now everytime he sees a butterfly, he asks if that was one we let go coming back to visit:)

          Our boys were studying metamorphosis in their classrooms and we decided to nurture some butterflies at home. We placed the caterpillar cup on our dining room table so that we could observe them eat and attach to the cup in preparation for chrysalis formation. We are so excited to observe the metamorphosis!

            We ordered the caterpillars, which only ship twice a week so they take a while to get to you. They were all alive and doing well when they came. I didn't realize that you pretty much just let them sit for a week without messing with them and then move them to the net enclosure and then let them sit more. My kids were looking for a more evolved bug experience. It will still be exciting to see them change, assuming no little hands shake the caterpillar container before the next week!

                  My kids LOVED this butterfly garden!! We have kids ranging in age from 10yrs to 2yrs and everyone enjoyed watching the metamorphis from caterpillar to butterfly!! Fun, educational experience. Once we ordered the caterpillars it took less than a week to arrive, my kids were so excited to recieve them. The instructions were easy to follow, and not much work is required.
