Our fabulous Butterfly Garden Kit is supplied with a voucher for live caterpillars which is great if you are buying for a gift or not sure when you want to start raising your butterfly family. (Your gift recipient will have nothing extra to pay to redeem the voucher!)

This educational kit gives children the opportunity to watch close up the miracle of 'Metamorphosis'. Observe caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies.

The Live Butterfly Garden Kit Includes:

  • Pop-up, reusable 30cm tall mesh Butterfly Garden habitat perfect for butterfly viewing!
  • Feeding Pipette
  • Complete Instructions
  • Certificate for five live caterpillars
  • NB The live caterpillars are sent out between March and mid September

Your 5 caterpillars will arrive in a clear plastic cup with all of the nutritious food they need. Keep the cup in a safe place away from direct sunlight. The caterpillars will remain in the cup and will eat, spin silk and grow to TEN times their original size! After seven to ten days they will hang upside down and harden into pupae.

Raise Your Very Own Butterflies and Release into the Wild

Once the pupae have hardened, gently move them to the pop-up butterfly habitat which you can make realistic with stalks and flowers. It will take about seven to ten more days for them to complete the transformation to adult butterflies. By which stage your children will be just so excited!

The Butterfly Garden Habitat is a reusable, cylindrical mesh container perfect for up close butterfly viewing! When not in use it folds flat for easy storage.     

Ages 4+

Bad

Very poor marketing not mentioning that caterpillars are not available until March

We replied to your email that we do state on both the web site and in our catalogue the following; NB The live caterpillars are sent out between March and mid September.

Grand daughter looking forward to using kit in the spring.

Excellent

Really novel present that everyone was excited about

Good

I thought the product was overpriced and it was a bit of an inconvenience having to send off for the caterpillars after receiving the product.It would be great it that step could be removed somehow.

Excellent

birthday present for 9 yr old She loved it will be good to do over school holidays

Excellent

Not only my two grandchildren, aged 5 and 3, thoroughly enjoyed the experience so did their parents and ourselves.Would seriously consider purchasing other products in your range.

Excellent

Absolutely great! Our grandchildren were fascinated by the metamorphosis of the caterpillars and loved watching the butterflies as they were released. Brilliant!

Good

They are excited about seeing the process.

Four beautiful butterflies released this week. Excellent activity. Real opportunity to observe a life process. Couldn't believe how tiny the caterpillars were when they arrived and to see the metamorphosis was wonderful for my grandchildren. They have asked to do it again!!

Poor

We had the caterpillars and they thrived and the kids enjoyed watching. The crysalid stage was next and only three made it. We are now waiting for the butterfly's but nothing after a week and no movement any moreğŸ˜ž. Not sure we are going to get butterfly's, they seem to have died. So sadly it again has been very disappointing. I think we must have been very unlucky with both stick insects and butterflies because I know they work from talking to others. However my experience would not make me recommend them

Good

I didn't like the fact recipients parent had to pay any money when it's a gift.
Liked the product and think it's both interesting and educational. Much better than learning about butterflies from a book.

Bad

Very poor value for money!
I would not recommend your site.

To my granddaughters' delight, five Painted Lady butterflies emerged and they greatly enjoyed watching the development from caterpillars.

Present so don't know

Good

The is a gift that will enhance an interest in nature and foster a sense of responsibility for the care of living creatures.

Excellent

Children were enthralled watching the caterpillars grow, turn into chrysallis and then into beautiful butterflies. Watching their faces as we set them free was amazing. We will do this again next year.
