If I could give it zero stars I would.

I immediately threw away the hollow bug molds and we are now waiting the 10 minutes for the thing to heat up again to try a solid bug.

The goo that is use to make the mold heats up to a thin liquid that just leaks right out of the mold and fills up the drip tray.

After being bombarded with commercials for this product for almost a year and thinking 'no way' the whole time because of a fear of seeing this stuff embedded in the carpet, staining the couch, and what-have-you, I was put into the position of having to break-down and just buy it. This toy is a child's dream come true. A bug making kit. C'mon, people!

For the record, I got the deluxe set with the crushing station included and then added the spiders and beetles molding sets as well.

I've bought my son a lot of toys over the years that looked cool and promised hours of fun that never lived up to the promise - but this toy keeps the kids engrossed for hours and my son and his cousins - love bugs of all kinds. This was the greatest thing ever concieved if you asked them.

First, if you're the kind of parent that buys your kid a toy and then says: "Here ya go, now go play," then this ISN'T for you. I recommend adult supervision with this at all times, for the simple fact that you have to melt down the jelly capsules inside the machine which takes a little time. You can't burn yourself with it, as I really tried, but when you press the pump on top it comes out as a warm goo, fills the bug mold and does have the potential to create a mess.

If you have a bossy ten year old to supervise, like a responsible older sister, then you can at least sit back, but you need to help them through the process. This toy teaches sharing and patience. It takes approximately 14 minutes to heat the goo (3 capsules) and 5 minutes to "cryo-freeze" the little guys.

*** Again, it takes approximately 14 minutes to heat the goo (3 capsules) and 5 minutes to "cryo-freeze" the little guys.

But like it ir not - this stuff will create a mess.

First of all, do NOT pay $50 for this toy! It can be found for $30 and should be $20 at MOST. The secret to this toy is to put 3 eggs into a glass measuring cup (that will from now on be your "bug incubator" and NOT for food) and pop it into the microwave for 10-15 secs on 30% power.

As you can see from the reviews, 4-5 year old love making bugs, but do not have the patience to wait 10-15 minutes for the thing to melt the eggs and then another 5 minutes for the thing to cool for EVERY bug! Not to mention my new batteries only made it through 2 cycles before dying. But my boys were able to manage 15 secs to melt the eggs and then only 5 minutes to cool. Plus, the goo melts so nice that the bugs are much more solid with no air pockets. Since I have started this method I have not had a "bad" bug.

Good luck all!! This is not the best toy, but if your 4 year old has his heart set on it (like mine did and he bought it with his own b-day money), then this is how to make the toy managable.

This bug maker is different from the oven, which I thought might be good because my son is young. We made 2 bugs and they totally feel apart. It is not the quality of the old fashioned oven. I took it back to the store, where, by the way, I had paid much less than on amazon.. and insisted they return it. Luckily, the girl sympathized with us and took it back!

This bug maker is a joke. The bugs are sticky, fall apart and do not do any of the things advertised. Directions were followed and even letting the molds cool down for over 3 hours, the bugs are still gooey and fall apart. The syringe for injecting the bug goo is hard to work and it rips the bugs when you are trying to inject the goo. I am taking this back for my money. I hear there is a bug maker oven that is actually fun. We will try that. Don't waste your money on this.

After two days of trying to make bugs, we're giving it up. This was a reasonably intelligent, parent-driven attempt to follow the directions. We have goo everywhere, wasted D batteries (even more $$ down the tubes) and a crying child who spend her $30 gift card from Grandma on a stinky non-working toy. Don't waste your money.

This thing is a piece of junk. It leaks all over the place. Any bugs that are created, will fall apart within a few minutes of handling them. Save your money. Don't buy this thing. It's a rip-off.

This does not work like the oven. Don't waste your money. They fall apart no matter how hard or long you try. We did everything possible to just get one good bug, but NOPE.

None of the fills hold the "goo", it will make a big mess. If you manage to "create" one bug out of this, then you took a lot of time and had a lot of patience. Of course, the bug you created falls apart almost immediately. DO NOT BUY THIS POS.

I am amazed this thing is on the market.
