    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.)

      My son loved the butterfly garden. He got to watch the life cycle of a butterfly & then let them go. He asked if we can do it again.

          Great fun for families!

          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.

                    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.

                    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.
