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.

          Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden Caterpillar to Butterfly Growing Kit:

          One of the greatest and most memorable time for my children was back in 1st grade when the class raised butterflies from pupas to butterflies, after hatching clasping one in their hands, going outside and setting it free. I wanted my granddaughter and nieces and nephews to experience the same sense of awe, pride, and beauty as my children did. I ordered a few kits to spread the joy!
