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.)

      The item was delivered pretty fast. We are still in the early stages of the growth process but my 3 yr old loves to check on them daily when we come in from work and daycare. We both think that it's pretty cool to watch them grow and eat the food that comes with the purchase.

        Absolutely love this product!! My 6 year old granddaughter received this for her birthday! I knew she would love it since years ago I purchased one for my daughter!! Watching her face light up when the catepillars go through their metamorphisis is priceless. She can't wait to come over to Grammys house to see what they are doing now!! Thank you for such a wonderful product!!

              Must additional $7.95 to get the caterpillars!

              Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden:

              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.
