TIPS TO AVOID DEAD BUTTERFLIES

This is a wonderful gift and children are much more likely to remember with fondness a natural wildlife experience like this, rather than a toy. It is easy to keep the net for an annual butterfly project too, and it's always magical to see them emerge.

1. Read all of the literature and view videos beforehand, and then read it all again. In fact, read a few books about insects in general, they are ace! Seriously, you need to not be in a position where the caterpillars turn up and you're scrambling around looking for the leaflet which somehow has disappeared from the box. Also you don't want to look like a bumbling amateur in front of kiddies.

2. Don't leave the care of vulnerable darling insects to kids. This all needs the care and dedication of an adult, and if you're not wringing your hands in anxiety over the fate of these tiny creatures at least twice a day you're not putting the time in.

3. Put a stiff tray under the butterfly enclosure to keep it stable when you move it around. It is a flimsy net and the bottom warps, resulting in pupae rolling around on the floor unless you put the entire thing on a hard surface.

4. Load up your cardboard chrysalis stand with a few dried peas to give it some weight and mechanical hardness, otherwise the card tends to fatigue and your carefully balanced cup lid laden with chrysalids ends up falling flat onto the enclosure floor.

5. Don't pin the chrysalis cup lid to the side of the netting. Opening and closing the zip on the lid results in the entire enclosure warping or shaking and flinging your precious animals around. Use the chrysalis holder, or blue-tack the holder to the ground leaning against the net.

Absolutely wonderful fifth birthday present for my five year old daughter! I think I was more excited than her! You get a coupon to send off for the five caterpillars which come in a pot with food for them, watch them grow and turn in to crysalides and then wait patiently for them to transform in to beautiful butterflies!
Only four of the five caterpillars survived but you get a guarantee that at least 3 will become butterflies.
Definitely recommend.

both me and the kids' have really enjoyed doing this, my kit was delivered on a monday so we had to wait till the friday before our caterpillars were dispatched, which came the following monday, something to bare in mind if this is a gift. the whole process took just about 3 weeks, within a week the caterpillars had made their chrysalis, another week and they emerged into beautiful painted lady butterflies all 5 of our caterpillars survived and were released after a few days. would definitely recommend, already thinking of getting some more caterpillars.

I purchased this for my 6 year old son in an attempt to get him something fun but educational. We take him to butterfly houses and he really seems to enjoy them. The whole process was easy and not as initially high maintenance as it seemed.nit came with a voucher to redeem caterpillars. Note though - when I went to order them I went to the website to redeem and I discovered you pick a date to dispatch and its about 2 weeks from the date you look into it. S, ultimately these came later than anticipated as we were buying as a gift. They did come quickly after dispatch. The caterpillars were smaller than a grain of rice when we got them and really didn't move at all. (Keep them in a room with a constant temperature that isnt too hot or cold, keep them out of the sun, usual stuff) They quickly became massive and they all have hung upside down. Putting the disc into the net was a pain as they hang sideways, so we used 2 safety pins with short thread between them (about 3 of these) and hung it so they're hanging like they were in the cup. My son in particular loved them. It was secretly educational as well. There were extra little bits in the box that are a bit easier for kids to understand, pictures, etc. lots of info that we can read and tell our son about. Best bit is that once we let the butterflies go we can reuse it. Our son has been walking around throwing out info about the caterpillars. Great set, good value considering you can reorder the caterpillars. Would recommend to anyone with a child that loves butterflies - it might seem high maintenance when you first read it, but really get them in the right place and leave them be, take them out when they're all hung upside down and then let them go! Great fun.

If you are going to order one of these, I would suggest buying this in advance to avoid disappointed children. You get a voucher and have to order the butterflies. They only send out on a Tuesday or Thursday so we have to wait a while before my daughter will be able to use it, she got so excited, only to be told she has to wait for the rest of it to come. Great idea though and very different. I would recommend BUT with planning to avoid disappointment. Can't wait for the butterflies to arrive so we can get started.

Bought this for my grandchildren following the arrival of another addition to the family to keep them entertained. They have been totally absorbed by the changes to the caterpillars. Just waiting for the butterflies to emerge now!
