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:

Be aware that caterpillars need to be ordered separately.
I purchased as a gift. I ordered caterpillars once I received using code for free caterpillars plus $7.95 shipping fee so I had caterpillars at time of giving. Family loves it. Very educational and can be reused.

            Nothing but a headache

            By heatherd88

            from Texas

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

            We bought this for our 4 year old because she loves butterflies and we wanted to show her the different stages of them. When we got home I ordered the caterpillars and watched the mail to make sure we grabbed it as soon as they were delivered. When we got them all of the caterpillars were dead. I emailed the address that was in with the caterpillars that said if anything was wrong to email them. They instructed me to email a different email with pictures, my name, order number, and shipping address after they insisted that the caterpillars weren't dead but they were just tired and lifeless. The caterpillars were stiff and very much not alive. So I emailed the other email with all of the information. Four days later I was emailed back stating I need to send then pictures, the order number, my address, and they will determine if I can get a replacement of caterpillars. They claim to guarantee you 5 caterpillars where at least 3 of them will turn into caterpillars. I've decided I'd rather not deal with the company and I asked for a refund and I will be returning the kit to the store. I would NOT recommend dealing with this company.

            Purchased this as a gift; isn't the birthday yet but the item looks pretty neat. I've seen a friend of mine use something like this (Unsure of brand) and the 5 year old daughter loved releasing them into the wild.
