This also was a good learning experience for him, took it to his classroom for show and tell.

When contacting the maker of the product, customer service representatives were not at all willing to resolve the issue.

I ordered this kit and was excited when I received it BUT there was no coupon for caterpillars inside! I sent it back and Amazon kindly sent me a new one right away. Now that I have the coupon for caterpillars, I realize that it cost $12 MORE if I want the caterpillars. Let me get this straight - I spent $20 for a tiny laundry hamper and now I have to spend almost that much just to get the good stuff??? I should have read all the information because now that I have, I realize that there is a Butterfly Garden Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden that only charges $3 for the caterpillars. This was such a ripoff and not a good experience.

The product information on the box of the butterfly kits is misleading. The contents of the kit lists a coupon for live caterpillars. But when you open the box there is not a coupon, only an order form to purchase caterpillars at an additional charge. There are other companies that sell kits shipped with live caterpillars for a lower price. When contacting the maker of the product, customer service representatives were not at all willing to resolve the issue. They offered no explanation for the deception on the box and refused to work with me.

This toy is a great idea! Though very costly for what you get (mostly just a square netting with a few cheap accessories! You must buy the eggs separately - we only had 5 babies hatch - and after 3 days only 1 is alive! My son loved it when they hatched, but he is VERY disappointed he only has one left - and he is assuming that one will die quickly too! We read lots of extra information on how to keep them alive - but not much worked! It might be better to keep them in their natural habitat!

I'm an adult and I'm struggling. I can't imagine what this would be like for a kid. I had over 200 hatchlings. I'm down to about 60 at first molt. They eat wingless fruit flies. These may/may not be sent with the mantises and there may/may not be an extra charge. Whether you get them or buy them, the supply is woefully inadequate. I started buying them at PetCo where 20 live flies are $[...]. The mantises can eat three flies a day each. I then paid $[...] for stock, growth medium, and breeding chambers to grow the flies - which take up to a month to produce a new generation of flies, and that's turned out to be another worthless, expensive nightmare. Fruit flies can eat fruit - but only when it's rotten. Rotten fruit stinks and gets moldy. Both flies and mantises can die from that. The mantises need to be indoors where it's warm, as do the flies so you can't just put the parts that stink outdoors. The live food that these guys need, and the food that the food needs, is a whole level of complexity and expense you may not be ready for. Finally, it is suggested that you separate the mantises into their own little mantis condos since they eat each other - especially if you don't have and abundance of other food for them to eat. I was fortunate to find small plastic jars. That still leaves me cleaning, adding a water source, and adding flies to dozens of containers. I spent nearly four hours Friday night cleaning everybody up and swapping out the fruit I've been using for the flies. A horse would be less work! You can treat this casually and basically kill all your mantises, and I suppose that would be a learning experience. If you want to come out of this with happy, healthy, full grown mantises, even a couple, you're going to pay a lot of money and do a lot of work. You may want to try the butterflies!

You have to pay extra for the critters! I think the cost of the kit, toy, etc. is even over priced! Then to pay more for the insects is a rip off!! Someone is sure making money on this one!

The box "Butterfly Kit - Raise your own live butterflies Watch and learn about life cycles!" is false advertising. It contained only the habitat NO LIVE material! Worse than that, the kit is useless--the zipper doesn't work at all!Fascinations GreenEarth Butterfly Kit

My Nephew was very excited about this gift, but finding Praying Mantis eggs was very difficult. I couldn't figure out how to order them on the vendor web-site (I don't think they have them...go figure, sell the kit but no eggs or a suggestion as to where to get them), but I did find them at another vendor. They are on back order until February.
So, don't buy this as a gift if it is the only present you buy. My Nephew doesn't mind waiting because I "packaged" it as something to look forward to.

This product did not come with the caterpillars, we had to order them separately. However once we got them, they were wonderful. Children learned a lot and I even was able to get a video of the butterfly emerging. We released them to go on their adventures.
