Awesome experience, great company.
This will be the 4th year that I've ordered this kit. My son enjoys watching the transformations as the caterpillars grow, weave their cocoon, then come out as beautiful butterflies. The kit comes with 5 larvae and the food for them to eat. It is extremely easy to handle. I have always had great luck in that all 5 develop into butterflies. It's pretty cool to see the cocoons hanging from the top of the container. We have had no problems moving them from the jar to the mesh habitat. It's amazing that all the butterflies emerge from the cocoons within hours of each other. In addition to the sugar water, we put oranges and flowers on the bottom. We enjoy watching them for a few days then release them. My son loves to watch them fly away. One butterfly stayed on his hand for a while before flying off. The last time I ordered this kit, when it arrived, the jar with the larvae and food was crushed and completely broken. I emailed customer service, and they immediately replaced it. I received the container within days. Not only is it such a wonderful experience to share the growth and transformation with your family, but it's also nice to know that the organization has such great customer service. I would recommend this butterfly garden and this company to anyone.
Great for all ages.
We ordered this last year for my then 2 yr old son and he loved watching them. We read 'The very Hungry Caterpillar' every day and was so excited when it was time to release them. He brought everyone who visited our house over to see his caterpillars!
