Have to say this is anexcellent present - my niece loves it the only disappointment was that she couldn't get going straight away as you have to send for the worm husks and food. Would be better if this was added to cost initially to save the wait over xmas/new year.
Still a great product

We bought this at Christmas knowing we would have to wait for worms. However, in the end we had to wait 2 months! Insect Lore emailed once advising there was a delay but I had to enquire a second time as I was beginning to think they had forgotten about us. This is why it has lost a star from us. Having said that, it sounds as though it may have been a one off problem and now we have the coccons we are having great fun watching them hatch. They feel like pets already and do seem to be emerging as planned. My 5 year old also loves feeding them and tending to the soil. Felt the worms, when just emerged, were a little too delicate to let her loose with the tweezers (which also seemed pretty inneffective). We combined this present with a book about worms which has helped make it even more interesting for the whole family. If you buy for an occasion, you can send off the voucher beforehand and ask for delivery around the date but the coccoons have to be dealt with pretty promptly so it would be inadvisable to have them arrive more than a day in advance.

bought this for my 4 year old nephew who loves bugs. I'd read the reviews that told me to watch out for having to pay extra and wait for eggs to arrive so he had it all explained and loved it all.

Bought as a birthday gift for a 4 year old. Worm cocoons didn't get posted until a few weeks after her birthday but that's fair enough. However when they did arrive the cocoons were empty. Apparently there was a problem with that batch, so another batch was sent out. Three weeks later and still no worms have hatched. Seems to be the same experience as the last review back in Aug 2012. Such a shame as the butterfly one worked so well.

One disappointed 4 year old. Time to talk to Insect Lore again.... 3rd time lucky perhaps?

At present ZERO stars as there are zero worms.

very small, looked bigger, our worm casts never hatched so we had to buy worms from the local fishing shop then found only 3 would fit in compfortably. interesting wee book with it but overall not worth the money.
