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.

          Product comes in the amount of time it says it will arrive in. Once the caterpillars start moving around the kids loved it! All you have to do is feed them and follow the directions and then you get to see butterflies close up and let them go!

            Once you put the batteries in and place the nozzle on the end it is ready to go, my grandson couldn't wait to get out there to see what he could catch, very easy for him to use. He was able to catch a ladybug!!! He was so excited!!! He even took it to school to show all his friends and teacher and he wanted to show them.
