- Great experience, great product
My 3 year old received this as a gift for his birthday. We waited until the timing was right for us and ordered the caterpillars. The whole process has been fun to watch and all 5 butterflies emerged this morning. I think I'm the most obsessed with them out of the whole family. What a great experience to watch and learn from. Very impressed!

- An amazing experience for my whole Family
