Grandkids love this product

My Grandson called today. He asked when his caterpillars would arrive. I bought two sets (he has a sister) last year and they took them everywhere, to the store, the library. My daughter was happy both kids had their own "babies" to carry around. This year my Grandson plans to use his caterpillars for show and tell in kindergarten. He is very excited to tell the story about how they become butterflies. This will be annual tradition for a while!

I am a 1st grade teacher and have bought these every year for the last 10 years. They always arrive when they are supposed to, and I always get 5. In 10 years, 49 out of 50 butterflies have made it! WOW! Great product, great price, kids love it and so do I!

The student's really enjoy the many changes that the caterpillars take before they transition into butterflies.

Our program has been using Insect Lore for about 3 years or so now and we absolutely love them!
