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.

    I have used this product for years in my classroom and have never had any problems. I use the same net year after year and just order more caterpillars every spring. The net is washable and always comes clean. It is an invaluable hands on experience for children as far as I am concerned. I just bought a new one this year to share with my children at home too!

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

      Negative- You buy the butterfly garden and have a voucher. You then have to order the cattapillars. You pay shipping charges, $8 for standard shipping and more (much more ) for 2 day or over night.

      Positive- great project for kids! The product is a quality product. We got 5 cattapillars. They all lived The came in a vented plastic container with a food source for them. The have been growing very fast.

      Over all I am happy with the product!

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

        We haven't tried ours yet because we just got it as a gift after experiencing it with another friend who homeschools, and deciding we wanted one of our own. We are excited. The only two things I would warn of is to be aware that it takes time to order and receive your caterpillars, so this is not immediate use...and that you still have to invest another $8. to have the 5 caterpillars shipped to you, over and above the initial purchase price. It gets a little pricey. My friend ended up with two batches of butterflies to set free because the first batch laid eggs that turned to tiny caterpillars, who ate, grew, spun cocoons, and hatched into butterflies. So, that was neat...and unexpected!

              We found a caterpillar and were wanting a safe and easily visible place to keep it and watch for it's transition. So far it has been a wonderful experience. We plan to redeem them the certificate that will send us more caterpillars to repeat our fun and educational process!
