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:

    I am currently very happy with this. We ordered our caterpillars and they came sooner than expected. They are growing like champs and are headed to the J-team very soon. I am a little concerned that there seems to be no problem with where these critters are sent to or when. I can't release butterflies in New England in January but the company doesnt seem to have and regulations for that. I could be wrong.

      Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden:

      We have it down to a science! We go to our local nursery, find the herbs, look for a catapillar, and buy 2-3 plants. We watch the little guys eat like crazy and grow fat right before our eyes in a large open container. It's just like Eric Carl describes in his The Very Hungry Butterfly book. When they stop eating and began to make tier cacoon we place the plant they are attached to in this butterfly "cage" with mesh sides so the plant and the cacoon has air and light exactly as it would in nature, yet it is protected from harm for 14 days. When the butterfly emerges we allow it walk all over our arms, head, and we take the most beautiful pictuers that we then have forever....an we release the butterfly to run free and lay more eggs.

        I bought the Lore Butterfly Garden for my Niece and Nephew for Easter and they loved it. We ordered the larve and they arrived a week latter in the mail. So far they are doing exactly what they are supposed to do. They are eating their food and the kiddos love watching them. They are excited to see them transform into to beautiful butterflies so they can let them go in the garden outside!

          Immediately after the birthday party, my 4 year old grandson was filling his butterfly garden with bugs, and my son was getting ready to show him the ins and outs of butterfly hatching. I think 'dad' and son will enjoy it together!

              This is my first year using this item. We ordered the painted lady catapillars and it was delivered promptly. All specimen were alive and well and they are growing so quick it's amazing to watch the metamorphosis with my two sons. This will be a yearly tradition I will forever cherish.

                  Comments about Insect Lore 1001615 Insect Lore Butterfly Garden:

                  Our caterpillars arrived healthy and on time in their "no-fuss" container. We have had them about six days now and they really are "no-fuss". They're very active, eating and spinning silk. They have more than quadrupled in size since the day they arrived! Two of them are spending a lot of time hanging around on the paper disk and look like they may be getting ready for their metamorphosis. We are excited to see what happens next! My daughter gets a kick out of looking at them through her magnifying glass and watching caterpillar anatomy in motion. She has fun and learns more when it is hands on. This product is just that! When it comes time to release our Painted Lady Butterflies, I know we are going to want to make this a spring time tradition for years to come!
