    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.)

        Amazing product, my kids love it. The caterpillars grow daily, so lots of excitement when the kids see them. I had a few questions about how to use the caterpillar coupon. Found customer service for this company to be exceptionally responsive and helpful!! Great product!!!!

            My 5 year old niece was so excited to get this gift. We are waiting for our caterpillars to arrive so we can get started. The instructions are easy and straight forward. It's nice that the food comes with the caterpillars. It seems like an easy, fun, and educational gift so far.

                    Company offers a mail service to send live caterpillars each year for a minimal cost.

                    Well made

                    Perfect size for little kids!!

                      I was disappointed that you have to pay $5 shipping to receive the caterpillars. You've already paid $15 for just a mesh bag and the certificate that is included requires an additional cost. This should be disclosed on the outside of the box. Also be aware that the caterpillars cannot be touched or held (in order to avoid introducing bacteria into their container) my little one was disappointed that you couldn't hold them.
