    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.)

      I needed a butterfly habitat for my classroon and was having trouble finding one. No store I tried had any in stock. I was thrilled to find I could order one on line from Toys R Us and pick up right away. We used it successfully in my classroom and I am going to use it again with my grandsons now. I plan on using it at school again next year. Very happy with this purchase. Will use on line ordering again in the future.

      Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden:

      This product is easy to use, and my children can't wait until the butterflies arrive. They love to watch them grow & change through the different stages. After the butterflies are released, my daughter collects caterpillars from the yard or trees and takes care of them until they turn into moths or butterflies. The only fought I can find, is that the netting can get holes or can be torn from repeated use.

                  I was disappointed that it costs another $5 to get the caterpillars.
                  It is mentioned somewhere on the box but not that visible.

                  The kit is fun.
                  We just got the little baby caterpillars in the mail and the kids got really excited about growing their own pet butterflies.

                    The caterpillars arrived within 5 days of going online to order. We've had them for a week so we are still in process.

                    It would be nice if the instructions were on the top inside the box. My child was opening the caterpillar cup to touch them before I could get to the instructions which expressly state not to open the cup.

                      I sent away for the caterpillars and all five arrived ahead if time and alive. We are currently watching them grow. The only challenge I see thus far is attaching the chrysalis to the roof of the pop up cylinder netting butterfly home. I will probably use painters tape. The caterpillars arrived with a coupon for another caterpillar order.

                          All of my kids, ages 10 - 1 enjoyed watching the caterpillars transform into butterflies and letting them go free. It was an amazing experience and we look forward to doing it again this coming spring.
