We can't get enough of these habitats! They are so convenient! We usually have three on hand, with one always in the minivan. They work so well because they fold down and go in a storage bag when not in use so that they can be stored almost anywhere very easily. They give whatever is in them a nice airy environment, and the white mesh and clear top make for pretty unobstructed viewing. The only drawback is that the mesh, as can be expected, is not the sturdiest of materials and can be ripped. We have taped a couple of small tears back together, but they do eventually become beyond repair. However, for the price and the fun, good use that is gotten from them, they are a great buy.

My son is an avid bug catcher and he has had one of these for two years now. He is hard on his toys, especially bug paraphernalia. It's EXCELLENT construction and is great for storing bugs/bees/butterflies/etc. It's held up really well over the years. It's not the one that comes with caterpillars - this is just the container, but definitely worth it.

Ordered these for grandchildren for Christmas, was real pleased with the material and workmanship and the convenience of them being able to clip it on their belt while they are exploring.

My 5 year old kids absolutely love this. We have a butterfly net (Coghlan's Kids Butterfly Net) for each, and I was getting worried about all the larger insects they were placing in those cheap plastic bug collector containers. This one is very airy, and easy to get things into (though the zipper is prone to catching on the edge of the netting which is cut off around the zipper), so works well for them to examine the little winged creatures they net (and release the next day). It's small, which is good for their small hands. The full sized butterfly houses are just too big for them to haul around as easily.

The carrying case is a cool idea for traveling, but they don't use it in practice. Keep it in a safe place for when you need to travel with it.

We bought these for our kids right before we headed for a 9-day long camping trip. We bought two each of the Insect Lore Pop-Up Port-A-Bug and the Creature Peeper as well as a butterfly net and a book on bugs. The pop-up habitats are perfect! They are a great size for our 5- and 2-year-old children; they can carry them easily and they nicely fit several butterflies and beetles. The mesh habitats allow the kids to enjoy the bugs and not kill them. We "let the bugs go home to their families" every night so we had a ritual of releasing the bugs which the kids also enjoyed. They have a nice velcro-tabbed handle which allows you to hang them from trees. We spent hour after hour chasing butterflies and other various bugs to put in the habitats. They are very durable (no tearing, which I was afraid of with our youngest) and I love that they can quickly break down to put away when we were ready to break camp. A great educational and play toy for kids young and old... I had as much fun as our children.

This is a great little bug net. We found some small caterpillars in our backyard, and they escaped a different bug trap we had, but weren't able to escape this one. It is well made, and not really big. If you want a smaller net I would get this. It is about 4-5 inches across and about a foot tall, with the zipper at the top, and a clear top to easily see in. My 6 and 4 year olds love it, and found it fun to watch their new little bug friends, and was worth the ten dollars.

My daughters school gave us a couple of caterpillars and we needed to buy a butterfly cage. I looked all over town and could not find one anywhere. I found this one here on Amazon and decided it was a good price and exactly what I needed. The other one that I was looking at was more than double the price of this one (the other one did include a voucher for 5 free caterpillars via mail...with $5 shipping though). I decided this was a better deal, since I already had my caterpillars. It arrived about 3 days earlier than expected and it was slightly smaller than I thought it would be, but it worked perfectly for what I wanted. The two caterpillars turned into butterflies today and yesterday. We set them free today! I would recommend it to anyone who is wanting their children to experience the magic of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly! Great product! Thanks!

This is a nice bug house for the money but wish it had been just a tad bigger. My grandkids love to catch bugs in the summer and the house they had was warped. This is much nice because they can keep it folder until they "get" some bugs and then when they are finished they can fold it back up and put it in the garage drawer with their other summer supplies. It's going to be of great use this summer!
