I purchased several of these for girls aged 4-13. Surprisingly, it was a hit with all of them. They all had so much fun making their own butterfly creations. Because they went over so well, I purchased several more after Christmas for our gift closet. I'm keeping them on hand for upcoming birthday parties.
The box the butterflies are packaged in is a nice size, and gives this item an overall appearance of being a nice gift.
The contents are also of a good quality, so your child's butterfly creations should hold up for a long time.
Lastly, I initially purchased them because my two daughters both really enjoy arts and crafts, but two of the other girls who received them really weren't into that type of thing. However, those two had just as much fun and spent a great deal of time perfecting their creations. So it's safe to say that this item appealed to not only girls of varying ages, but also varying interests.
Overall, I believe this butterfly kit is a great purchase for little, and not so little girls.

My 7 year old niece loved this kit and said it was her favorite Christmas present! Her mom helped her a bit, but she loved being able to decorate the pieces on her own.

We have some of them hanging from our chandelier. I catch myself admiring those butterflies. The kids had a great time working on these butterflies. May buy once again! Great gift idea.

This is a great item - the kids decorate their butterflies with the provided supplies and then you can hang them up. It is quick and the end result is very pretty and whimsical. The included barrettes don't turn out very well though. I buy this kit and gift it for birthdays for my girls friends often.

This was a Christmas present for our 5-year-old granddaughter. She enjoys arts and crafts and absolutely loved this product.

My daughter loves these butterflies and we hung them from the ceiling of her room. They were easy to make and allowed her to use her own creativity.

First, I must say that I am pretty surprised at the number of high reviews.

I was not a fan of this item the first time my daughter was given it as a gift, and less of a fan of it now that she has used a second set.

There are three butterflies, large and two "medium", plus a few to attach to those metal, bendy hair clips. And, frankly, not NEAR enough jewels for the surface area. (Of course, the jewels are the first things that the girls will want to stick to their butterflies, they will be gone in a skinny minute; the box cover appears to show 25-30 jewels and that is probably about all you get.)

You get 3 or 4 tubes of glitter glue, which the kids invariably glob all over the butterfly, and of course since the butterflies are made of some sort of mesh/nylon type material the glue goes right through. Giving that situation some thought, I wonder if providing the kids with some Q-tips to spread the glue might improve that situation. I think that is doubtful, though, since I had a tough time getting the little jewels to stick to the mini butterfly I myself was decorating with plenty of glue. I was trying to figure out how it was supposed to stick to the clip, since there was a metal bump on the underside of it, when I realized there were double sided sticky dots to attach it to the clip. I thought the clip looked a little unfinished when I stuck the butterfly on it. Just not like something I'd bother keeping track of.

My daughter is very crafty, and she is always creating something. Of course, when this is the case, you have to pick and choose what gets hung up/preserved/tossed. Sadly, the 3 butterflies from the first set ended up in the trash, and unfortunately these will too. Had I got my hands on the box early enough, I would have returned it to JoAnn Fabrics in exchange for almost *anything* else.

I think for $15 plus you could get a very nice American Girl craft kit or Shrinky Dinks instead, if you are looking for a gift. You'd even be better off buying 15 crafty items from the dollar store and tossing them in a pail, in my opinion.

This was a huge hit! The little girl I bought this for loved it and was so excited to get started on decorating her butterflies! When i went to visit her about a week later she had her beautifully decorated butterflies hanging above her bed! I was so happy that she found so much joy in decorating and hanging her OWN creation in her room. I will definitely be buying from this company again! Thanks so much!

Bought for my seven year old, who loves to do crafts and loves butterflies, glitter, etc. I was disappointed by how little there was for the price, though. It's basically a big butterfly, two medium, and three very tiny ones for the barrettes. I know the info said this, but I had it in my head that there were small ones in addition to the tiny barrette ones. Not worth the fifteen bucks.
