Great product. I am a caregiver for the elderly. The butterfly garden has given great pleasure to them as we care for them together. Some even allow the butterflys to sit on their hands while feeding them. This is something people that age have never experienced. Butterflys birth thru growth. They are always sad to say good bye when we let them go.....some butterflys stay arround after released which brings smiles to their faces.
- I bought this for an Easter gift for my kids. They loved it and just released our butterflies last week. I already purchased 10 more now and are caterpillars are here. Love watching them grow and change.
I really loved doing this for my kids and also my at home daycare kids
- Great experience for all ages !
I bought this last year for my grand daughter after we did one in our classroom at or local school , it was very exciting for everyone who watches and to release them is an experience also !
