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.)

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

We ordered the caterpillars, which only ship twice a week so they take a while to get to you. They were all alive and doing well when they came. I didn't realize that you pretty much just let them sit for a week without messing with them and then move them to the net enclosure and then let them sit more. My kids were looking for a more evolved bug experience. It will still be exciting to see them change, assuming no little hands shake the caterpillar container before the next week!

        My kids LOVED this butterfly garden!! We have kids ranging in age from 10yrs to 2yrs and everyone enjoyed watching the metamorphis from caterpillar to butterfly!! Fun, educational experience. Once we ordered the caterpillars it took less than a week to arrive, my kids were so excited to recieve them. The instructions were easy to follow, and not much work is required.

              This is a must have for every child to experience!!! The caterpillars were shipped quickly. Though haven't reached the butterfly stage yet, they are getting bigger each day. Caterpillars are progressing just like the kit states so I'm confident we will have butterflies in a couple weeks!

                The house was easy to set up and use. There is a zippered closure at the top for transferring the butterflies in and eventually put. Also a big enough opening to get the food in and out. Would definitely recommend this product to others. I have talked to several people about it already.
