The product is just as described. The caterpillars are not in the box, but there is a card to mail in to the supplier. You will need the shipping and handling (around $6-$7). When I first received the caterpillars I thought they may be dead, but it takes a couple of hours for them to begin moving around and then there is no doubt they are fine.
This is a great buy as a learning experience for kids, but it is also fun, exciting, and non-messy for adults!
not too impressed, all you get is the pop open cage, ahve to wait a long time to get your caterpillars. I would not recommend or buy again. In fact if I had already given it to my son I would have returned it.
This product was as educational as it was entertaining. I bought it for my own children, but ended up using it repeatedly with my students at school as well. The perfect way to teach children about life cycles - at home or at school.
Gave the treehouse to my daughter for her 7th birthday. We immediately faxed the order for the caterpillars, and they came in less than a week. Directions were very easy. We got five caterpillars in the mail, and now we have five butterflies that just emerged from their cocoon. My two year old has been enjoying them too. Great price, much cheaper than the T.V. version.
My children are so excited while they await the hatching of their butterflies. This is a great learning toy and an excellent gift. Be aware that the larvae do not come inside. You must send away for them with the enclosed card and $6. Walmart's price on the house was the best I found. Very pleased with the item!
The Butterfly Treehouse is great fun and educational besides! My 7 yr. old son first saw it on TV and really wanted it. Even after we "raised" the five caterpillars that we ordered, he has caught his own and had fun feeding them flowers and sugar water. Neat product!
I absolutely love this! My 5 year old daughter has been very afraid of bugs this summer for some reason, making it almost impossible to even go outside. We bought the butterfly treehouse with hesitation, but it has been a blessing.
We received the caterpillars 6 days ago (only a week after mailing off for them). So far, all 5 are still alive and one started making it's cocoon just this morning.
My daughter has actually become very protective of them and is insistant that no one touches the jar they are in. This has been a great learning experience for all of us... what a great idea!
Had to return product as description did not note that caterpillars cannot be shipped to Hawaii. What a letdown for my granddaughter
