3.0 out of 5 stars Wife happy, kids happy, school happy, mother in law delighted. Wallet much lighter…
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 15, 2019
So we bought 3 of these sets and caterpillars eventually.

Note that you’ll have to order 5 caterpillars and their food separately with an included voucher. This will set you back another £4.
And also note that these are only available from March to mid-September! It takes about a week for your little babies to arrive. And then they will only stay with you for about 6 to 7 weeks (although to my mind these insects were already overstaying their welcome).

So for those looking for a cheaper, more rewarding and longer lasting pet-bonding experience it might better to buy a cheap fish tank and a standard goldfish.

The main item in the box is the pop-up butterfly cage/habitat in which your caterpillars do their chrysalides thing and transform into ‘beautiful’ ‘Painted Lady Butterflies’. This habitat is of good quality and can be used afterward for a repeat session or to keep other insects. The box includes a clear instruction guide as well that also provides you with some butterfly facts to prep you as a future parent.

We originally bought the set for our children, 3 and 6-years old, to learn them about insects and metamorphosis. They were quite fascinated to watch the caterpillars eat and grow from tiny worms into cocoons and then turn into butterflies that they had to release outside. But the one that was most excited about her five new little babies was my wife. So I dropped a further five ranks on our domestic attention- and importance-ladder at home. Well, at least these helpless wormy creatures got a lot of love and care. Stress and attention reached a peak level when their cocoons had to stay glued to a panel to hang out for several days. And my wife’s heart was broken when the kids had to release the butterflies. Personally I thought the caterpillar and the cocoon-stage in particular were disgusting – their diner, the rotten fruits didn’t help. The constant presence of the habitat started to annoy me in our fairly modest inner city living room. And the resulting butterflies weren’t as beautiful as advertised. But of course I got more partial throughout the process.

This is not where the investment and excitement ended as it was considered a great idea to buy two more sets AND caterpillars, one for my mother-in-law (!) and one for my daughter’s class room – of course both very much deserve every penny of investment and the joy of butterflies. Aside from the instant pain in my wallet that episode luckily wasn’t as intrusive in our family life. However given my wife’s enthusiasm we apparently might order another batch of caterpillars next season. Always great to have something to look forward to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 20, 2015
Absolutely amazing! I bought 2 sets of the Butterfly Garden for my grandchildren as gifts and they have been enthralled by the whole process as the caterpillars changed into butterflies. When we went to release the butterflies they didn't fly off immediately and spent nearly twenty minutes on our hands and clothing, the delight on my granddaughters faces was magical. I videoed the whole experience and I am sure we will watch it for many years to come .Although we think we are aware what happens to actually see them developing over the period of time is nature at its best and all members of the family have learnt so much. (My very grown up son especially - he has been mesmorised!) It is such a simple affordable gift but probably one of the best that I have ever bought for them and we will definitely be repeating the process next year and purchasing for other children as birthday presents etc. I cannot recommend Insect Lore highly enough, the ordering was simple and the instructions easy to follow as detailed in the box but as well as this they sent me regular E-Mails to ensure we knew what to expect next and how to look after them. Superb customer service!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Jar is not big enough for all the caterpillars.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 20, 2018
We loved the whole experience of metamorphosis of butterflies.
Please note on this amazon order you won't get your caterpillars delivered. You need to spend an addition £3.00 to order it.
It comes in a small jar with food and 5 caterpillars. We had read quite a few reviews saying not all of them survived. When I said this my daughter she instantaneously said " mumma no wonder they didn't, as it's a cramped space". Children are just amazing:-).

Day 3, the jar was covered in their poo and silk around it. We transferred them into a bigger box. A couple of weeks ....Hooray all of them survived and became beautiful butterflies.

I would highly recommend this. Thank you amazon.
