"The kids had so much fun watching the caterpillars eat and crawl around and then change to butterflies. All of our caterpillars turned into butterflies. The kids kept them for a couple of days and we let them release them in our yard. This was very educational."
"I ordered this for my 6 year old son and he enjoyed it very much. He watched the caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies. He was very fascinated by the whole process and loved releasing the butterflies in our yard. I highly recommend this product. Also the product has a support site if you have any questions while raising your butterflies. Great fun."
"This was the most amazing thing for my son. He is totally into bugs and had so much fun watching the caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies. I enjoyed it as much as he did. We released all 10 butterflies into our yard and now he wants to do it again."
"Keep up the good work. Thanks for making it a great value for our ongoing kid's education!"
"This was amazing. My 3 year old daughter loves butterflies. She was so amazed at the process and loved to check on her butterflies daily. She would show anyone and everyone that came to our house. She even showed the Post Man haha! "
"This is the best learning tool out there. The larvae were all alive, we had 10 gorgeous butterflies. Now that the youngest is 5, I just bought more larvae so we can do it again. It's great to teach them about God's miracles, too."
"I ordered this for my six year old, and she loved it as well as learning a lot about the cycle of life for these butterflies. The different steps along the way are very educational, and the reward is live butterflies for a few weeks. Since we have a garden, we fed them strawberries, then gave them a slice of banana every now and then, they seemed to thrive."
"Clear Instructions. Easy to do. recommend I'd do this with my children over again. I have brought other products from Insect Lore for fellow teachers!"
"I purchased the butterfly garden as a gift for my two grandsons, who loved each stage of development ! They eagerly watched the caterpillars each day, and when butterflies came out of the cocoon, they were excited to watch them fly off to their "friends." I was concerned that maybe the specimens would not be healthy, but three butterflies completed their development. What a perfect gift"
Great tool for helping my kids experience and understand nature ... close up! My kids love this!"
"Excellent overall product. Quality materials. Directions and guide extremely helpful."
"Our caterpillars grew fast and in a couple days transformed into chrysalides. in about 8 days 4 of the 5 chrysalides produced beautiful butterflies. My 7 yr old son was very excited from start to finish of this project! Not disappointed in any way! Every stage was well described in the pamphlet so no unexpected events happened."
"This is awesome! When we first got them they were tiny. In just 3 days even my 2 year old can see the difference!"
