Item Description

Let your kids learn about insects and appreciate nature with the As Seen on TV Butterfly Garden by Insect Lore. No actual catching is necessary; all you have to do is watch them grow and have fun with them. Kids can raise five Painted Lady butterflies while learning all about metamorphosis with this award-winning Butterfly Garden! They will see each caterpillar transition as it matures, changes into a chrysalis and finally emerges as a fully grown butterfly. After observing butterflies in this live butterfly garden, kids can experience the joy of releasing them out into the open. This kit is recommended for kids ages 4 and up.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 43reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful way to see nature up-close! WOW! I always look forward to the arrival of spring because it means it is time to harvest butterflies! The larvae arrive in a small plastic cup--with air holes on the lid. The food for the larvae is right in the cup and it is in the clear cup you can watch the larvae grow into caterpillars! Once the caterpillars are ready for the transformation into butterflies, they attatch themselves to the inner paper lid (below the plastic lid). From this point, all you need to do is attach the "lid" with cocoons attatched and gently transfer them into the inside of the canopy where the walls are mesh! This canopy is very well made; so easy to store , too as it "collapses" into itself and can be stored in the original box. It is fun to track to growth of the butterflies from the very beginning; each stage is unique and amazing to observe from start to finish! 06/13/2011
Rated 1 out of 5★ by I am more than a little upset that I purchased this product for my son's birthday over one month ago and we still have yet to get our caterpillars. I have not heard anything from RibbitsGalore even though they state that they will notify me if any delays are incurred with shipping. Not only that but this product was somewhere around $16 plus you have to pay for the caterpillars which is another $6.50 (although you do get free shipping and save $6)I just think it is very poor advertising that there is nothing on the box indicative of the extra fee for the caterpillars but on top of it all there is nothing stating that it will take a minimum of two to three weeks to get the caterpillars. If they said that on the box I would have ordered the caterpillars at least one week before my son's birthday.As it stands, until RibbitsGalore satisfies me by somehow rectifying the situation they are only getting one star. If anything changes I will update this review as needed. The ball is in your court Ribbits. 05/25/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 Neat idea, but lacking the butterflies I bought this product for my nieces ages 5 and 7. They loved the idea, but could hardly wait to get the caterpillars which you have to send off for separately. I was not aware of this when I ordered the Butterly Garden. They are, however, anxiously awaiting the arrival of their caterpillars. 05/09/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Bummer Purchased the butterfly garden at walmart and when I went to purchase the caterpillars on their website I was told they will not ship to AZ because its too hot. Awesome, now I've got a 3 year old super excited to grow butterflies and no way to do it. Awesome...... 07/14/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 great product to help kids learn My son absolutely loves this product :) 07/24/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I bought this for my 7 year old which loves to explore everything especially how one animal transforms into another animal. She was amazed the whole time. I bought it for $15 & then I went online & ordered the caterpillars & paid $5. So just $20 & I get 5 butterfly's. Not bad at all. The caterpillars come from California. They arrived fast on regular delivery. My daughter is waiting for the cacoon to hatch as of today. I will order more caterpillars as soon as we release the butterflies. 06/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for all child care providers Every year at Peace of Mind Child Care & Early Learning Place, we hatch butterflies. The children love watching the process and then releasing their butterflies into the sky. We do this every year but the certificate to get the butterflies after the first time you have purchased the net, cost around $16.00. Buying it from WalMart on line cost me $10.00 and I have a whole new set instead of just getting the butterflies. Great, great deal!!!! 11/14/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by The caterpillars arrived quickly. I gave this as a present last weekend and this weekend the recipient said they already received the caterpillars! They looked like they came in good condition. Excited to hear what happens. 06/09/2012
